Default roll bar questions

What is the difference between a 2.4mm and a 2.6mm roll bar? I might get one for the front suspinsion on my hyper 7. If I do get the roll bar how much better handling will I get? Thanks.

Need to tell everyone what type of track you run on and why do you want a thicker type?

No, I don't even have a roll bar in the front, only in the rear. The track is pretty technical.

depends on what your car is doing and what you are actually tring to achieve by going to a thicker bar. A thicker bar in front is going to give you less offpower steering coming into the turns but you should gain alittle onpower steering coming out. If you go to thick though the car will push. Track type, what your car is doing that you don't like, and what your tring to get the car to do will also help to answer your qeustion better.
High traction= thicker bars (easier to drive)
Also you could just get a sway bar kit and expirement with them.
