Sway Bars - totally personal preference or..
As the title says, are sway bars totally personal / car specific or is a known size determined to be most suitable for our cars.
Car is running well and next step is to sort out the on track behaviour.
The Koni shocks I have allow a bit more body roll mid corner and I think the turn in could be improved somewhat with a set of stiffer sway bars.
The previous owner of my shocks, engine, wheels etc ran 24mm front (15/16 ish) and I think 16mm rear bars. this was a relatively succesfull race car in our "classic Japanese" series.
Is this the right size to start with or do you race / track guys have other ideas....?
