^^So far, I'm seeing better grip from the inside tire on corner exit, not less. With less side to side weight transfer, I'm keeping more weight on the inside tire. I also disagree with your thinking that I'll be spining helplessly on a track.

If I was building a track only car, I would be looking at stiffer springs and dampners. In autocross, your dealing with parking lot surfaces which can be less than optimal and uneven. Not to mention I have to drive this car every day.

Again, taken to an extreme with too much sway bar up front, I would be lifting the inside tire. I'm not there yet. I'm not lifting the inside tire with this bar like you think I am.

It is not a hard and fast rule that a larger sway bar = lifting inside tire. Too much sway bar = lifting inside tire.

If you think the GRM article was useless, I'm sorry to hear that. There's a lot of good information in there.
