Charles, id probably go with the G4+ swaybar. play with roll centers and use the new blade bar, at first i didnt lik the new bar, but its grown on me and i love it. you can actually settle the rear end a bit by running the new bar full hard, this surprised me, but it works.

Hi Paul,

K14130-1 is no longer available. I cant find this in any online shop so that's why i was leaning towards the Mugen bar.

what do you actually mean when u say "settle the rear"?
more rear grip? will that reduce the steering and become understeer during power?

i run my frt bar hard and rear bar soft on a low-med traction track...

low - med track i use the opposite. my front bar is soft and rear bar is hard. i also use the G4JS plastic X braket, there is no problem with the steering on the car and the back is very grippy with the hard rear bar.

i havent tried hard and hard. when soft and soft, the rear is unsettled, the rear hard bar works fine, then i just play with roll centers and srings.
