A-main (where I bought the kit) doesnt seem to have the part available, and I wasnt sure if anyone who frequents this forum might be helpful in getting me the part.

I thought I would ask in case there is someone involved with distribution who might be helpful.

My understanding is High bite only, to prevent chassis roll. I have none. somebody correct me if my logic is wrong..

This one would make sense that it be track dependent. We have found that using only the rear is best on our track. I will try and dig up some info tonight that expalins some things about sways . . .

yes its mixed though, i've noticed it has alot to do with driving style.

also, since the DEX is much more narrow, it doesn't have alot of the body roll the competitors cars do. so its not as much of a necessity.

i've also noticed alot of drivers running them just up front.

From the hudy book

Anti-roll bars are used to adjust the car’s side (lateral) grip. They can also be used in conjunction with a softer spring rate to handle bumpy tracks more effi ciently without excessive chassis roll at mid-corner. Anti-roll bars resist chassis roll and by doing so transfer wheel load from the inside wheel to the outside wheel. The stiffer the anti-roll bar, the more load is transferred. However, as the outside wheel is not able to convert the extra wheel load into extra grip, the sum of the grip of both wheels is actually reduced.
This changes the balance of the car to the axle at the other end of the car; increasing the stiffness of an anti-roll bar on one particular axle (front or rear) decreases the side grip of that axle and increases the side grip of the axle at the other end of the car.
The overall traction of a car cannot be changed, but it can be balanced by
distributing wheel loads. Anti-roll bars are a very useful tool to change the balance of the car. Chassis stiffness plays a very important role in the effectiveness of anti-roll bars, and a stiffer chassis makes the car more responsive to anti-roll bar changes.
The front anti-roll bar affects mainly off-power steering at corner entry.
The rear anti-roll bar affects mainly on-power steering and stability in mid-corner and at
corner exit.
EFFECTS OF ANTI-ROLL BAR ADJUSTMENT
ANTI-ROLL BAR STIFFNESS CHARACTERISTICS
FRONT
Softer (thinner wire)
• Increases front chassis roll
• Increases front traction
• Decreases rear traction
• Increases off-power steering (may cause oversteer)
Stiffer (thicker wire)
• Decreases front chassis roll
• Decreases front traction
• Decreases off-power steering at corner entry
(increases understeer)
• Quicker steering response
REAR
Softer (thinner wire)
• Increases rear chassis roll
• Increases rear traction
• Decreases front traction
• Decreases on-power steering (increases understeer)
Stiffer (thicker wire)
• Decreases rear chassis roll
• Decreases rear traction
• Increases front traction
• Increases on-power steering (may cause oversteer)
• Quicker steering response in high speed chicanes

I recommend downloading the booklet and printing it out.

Here's another general beginners how to:

I run the thinnest (1.3) on both ends. With the sways I was able to soften up the suspension and not worry about it dumping over. The front helped take some steering away and the rear helped making powersliding some corners easier. In closing it just made the car easier to drive fast for me, without being twitchy....
