I raced with a sway bar for two years and then a friend convinced me to try with out it. Never went back. Never will either.

I race at a track with similar conditions and not one person uses a sway bar.

GET RID OF IT. ALL IT DOES IS ADD FRONT END WEIGHT.

Sway bars inhibit weight transfer and thats how you get side bite. throw it away.

I've always had good luck with a sway bar. Had cars with and without. I like them. Front and rear. I change the springs and shocks to adjust bite to the track.
