... and my tires
I installed my Autotech 28mm adjustable rear sway bar last night, then ran in my school's non-sanctioned autocross today. I must say, the car handles much better. It's much more neutral and actually rotates instead of just plowing into the turns. I'll be adding the Shine rear bar this summer too though... see how I like the dual sway bar setup
... Videos are below.







Rake!

Re: Autotech's rear sway bar rocked my socks! (soccergk)

a good rear sway will really transform the handling of a mk3 http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
now, you should start becoming comfortable with lift-throttle oversteer, it's easy and will allow you to drift entire on-ramps

I guess not... but for those who already have that type of swaybar as oem equipment, I would assume it reacts the same way.

Don't judge a book by its cover.
But for those that already have a rsb in that location, IE: trek models, gti, and glx, I don't think you'll see much of a difference.
