    Very nice! How do you like the sways? Big difference?

    It's almost a night and day difference with the Whiteline sway bars. I put the front and rear at the stiffest setting as well.

    I always wonder, the car is naturally understeer which is no good right? so if upgrading the sway, don't you want to have a bigger rear bar than the front to induce more overstreering to counter that to have more control during a corner if you're starting to slide?

    Understeer is not so good, which is why I upgraded the sways. With the 24 mm sway installed on the hardest hole and the rear sway bar installed on the hardest hole, I've found that the car turns in very neutral. I also found the car to oversteer a little bit around the track. Which was pretty fun.

    how does having the hardest setting affects your daily drive?

    I don't think the comfort level has changed honestly. it feels more or less the same with a tad bit more NVH.

    Here's a vid from my track day yesterday at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA. Best lap of the day was a 2:17. For comparison, a buddy in his GC coupe (STi drivetrain, stage 2, tune, coilovers, Toyo RA1 tires) had a fast lap of 2:09.

    Although I couldn't get thru all 19 minutes, I did watch a lot. Very cool. Thanks for posting.
