Default Choosing sway bars

What are the affects of a thinner bar vs a thicker bar? Trying to set my car up right for my track and In new at this. If someone could explain it to me that would be great.

Check out the HUDY manual. Lots of very good info on just about everything.

Basically the thicker the bar in that end of the car gives more traction in the other end. It does this by taking traction away from the end the bar is in.

There are other effects as well. The rougher the track, the thinner the bar, if any bar. The higher speed the corners are, the more body chassis roll. The more chance of traction roll as well.

You just have to play around but that will give you a good base of what you're looking at. There is more to it than that as well but that get's you a good start.
