yeah, i got whitelines on mine and i am a happy camper!!

just quickly to whoever it was saying that swaybars reduce grip in the first page, i thought the idea of swaybars was to increase grip by not letting the body roll. this works as the cars weight wont overload the outside front and unweight the inside as much with stiffer bars. meaning you have more contact patch on the ground, meaning more grip.

In theory.
In practice, the increased contact patch on the inside tire can't make up for that extra weight that would have been on the outside tire minus the bar.
Get 30mm front, run more negative camber (Fight uneven tire wear. Corner harder.)
Get adjustable rear, balance the car with that.
Stiffer rear bar = more oversteer/less lateral grip at rear of car
Softer rear bar = more understeer/more lateral grip at rear of car
That's what I'm doing this time around.
