I'm not ready to start throwing changes at my car yet as I haven't raced it yet but I'm thinking a slightly larger and perhaps adjustable rear sway bar might be interesting. What options, if any, are there?
That of course gives you another option.The Eibach front bar is so much bigger that I worry it may not be possible to match the rear roll stiffness.
I am not sure I really want to race my street car on big tracks.
I'm going to sign up for the Horse Thief Mile event in early March but that's a shorter track.
I think autocross is more my speed. No tire barriers or walls to crash in to and I'm not good at remembering long courses without lots of practice.
With the roads I drive every day, I think tight and technical is more relevant for me.
I think that is what the Fiesta ST does best so that reinforces my decision.
I like oversteer since it encourages fast rotation which can come in useful in autocross. My 90 Quattro was set up to be one of the few tail-happy 4WD cars and that worked well for me. I'm also concerned that bigger stickier tires may encourage understeer but given that street tires won't be as sticky as A6s perhaps that won't happen. I'll see how the car handles and if I want a little more rear bias I'll look at the Mazda 2 bar as an option.If a car over steers you add a front sway bar, if it under steers you use a rear one. Since the FiST is just about neutral, you would probably be making problems, not solving them. It already stays just about flat in a corner.
What do you conceder stickier?The car feels pretty neutral in stock form with sticky street tires. Not sure id encourage any push. My $.02
I have done the Dunlops and find the OEMs to be as good if not better.
I have also done the Toyos and found them to be much better then both.
As soon as I destroy the set of OEMs I am using the Toyos will the next purchase.
