Great read of the build thread.
Did you ever fit a rear sway bar, and if so, where?
Mark, I never spent much time with it on track. I did not have a rear roll bar, and I feel the understeer was pretty significant with the front bar in place. It also seemed to keep the front end from being quite as smooth. The car doesn't have a lot of suspension travel, and the center of gravity is so low, I certainly don't think the sway bars are needed for street use. I think it's hard for me to predict how things will be with slicks on a track, but my guess is that they probably are not critical.Dr. John,
Thanks for the note. It must be a function of how low the car is that the bars would be superfluous. Have you had the 40 on the track to assess the resultant roll in a more-than-street-pace? I've watched some of your track driving and can only guess that having driven real race machinery you would certainly be able to tell if a sway bar were needed. Curious, have you fitted a rear bar, either? Sure looks crowded back over the trans regardless of any desire to place one there...
Have you been able to tailor the under/oversteer solely thru shock tweaking, or do you feel it is a result of chassis and suspension geometry?
Thanks again. Mark
