I built a dodge shadow young guns car for my kid to race 13years old 3/8 mile dirt medium banking (10-12*) dry slick but will build rubber and get fast if the promotor keeps the water truck off the track. Would you keep the front sway bar for this type of track or ditch it? The suspension must stay stock and we run dot radials 225-14s

I WOULD KEEP THE SWAY BARS IT WILL HELP CONTROL THE BODY ROLL AND HELP CONTROL THE BOUNCE

Not only keep it, but pull the left front down tight. There is usually a bar mounting the SB to the control arm. Remove the bar and use threaded rod with Chevy rocker arm pivots as spacers.
This pre-loads the right front for more traction.
