Default I'm going through Hoppen Motorsports, and I chose to wait on the sway bar upgrade...

I believe Hoppen will sell the sway bars separately, and front and back can be picked up for around 4 bills or so, but you'll need to contact them (Mike) for actual cost.

Default the car over steered the entire weekend, had a hard time not letting the back swap with the front

the snows made it a real chore to handle. If I had just swaped the rear with out the front I am afraid how bad the car would have been. Have you done both sway bars or just the rear?

Default That's unusual even in the wet, ...

What tire pressures were you running?

Default 38 psi, every corner the back tried to come around. I ended up braking really early and apexing

really late, much beyond the point where I would normally turned in and began excellerating.
