DNA2 I found left a lot to be desired for rear end grip, Mazda6 I felt better, something a little less agressive.

take off that rear sway bar and you will get the rear end grip that you are looking for.

Since every one is on about rear grip ive only just found a balance for mine, im now using a medium/ hard rear spring set up with 60w team associated oil in the rear and front is a hard spring with 60w oil, and the help of the Dodge Stratus 3 cover with the rear wing mounted in the middle hole. Before i all this the rear end would step out very easily when accelarating out of a corner, generaly very slidy with every movment.

Edit: i havent used sway bars yet, and now i dont think i will have to

Personally I dont run sway bars, and if I was to consider using them it would only be on high traction tracks.

They stop the car hooking up too aggressively in the corners, but it is a very crude way of doing it. I prefer to work on the springs/oil/camber links and shock mounting positions than to just hide a setup problem with sway bars.

My take on it is that the sway bar is a very artificial way of getting the car to aid compressing and rebounding its suspension. Also, by playing with the rest of your setup you are running less weight by not having the sway bars on your car.

I have updated my setup, as the car seemed a little hard to drive with a one-way in, so here it is

DA_cookie_monst, im just wondering why on your set up sheet, you have the front diff tighter then the rear belt, whould this be so there isnt as much power going to the rear wheels so it spins during accelaration?

Blue:vb By allowing the front diff to be run a little tighter it allows for slightly better turn in, but not so fierce as a spool.

It helps pull the car out of the corner better, as the front axle is lighter loaded, you can get some wheel spin on the inner wheel, so you run the diff tighter to get drive to both wheels evenly.

I am assuming the poster meant diff's as I made no reference to belt tightness on the sheet.
