Dr Ken said:I specifically attempted to minimize that inner-wheel lift, which limited my cornering speed. The addition of the 22mm front sway bar improved things considerably in this respect. My test was in parking garage at work...hehehe....love the sound of the Brullen in there. By increasing the front sway bar, there was a noticible improvement in cornering traction and speed.
Templar said:To the best of my knowledge, I have the only GC8 in the US running on a 25mm front and 20-24 set to 24 in the rear. The rear is a Whiteline and the front is made by Addco. Here is a review.
Turn in is immediate, flat and neutral. The car remains flat and neutral throughout turns. Once I removed my front strut towre brace I suffer no understeer at all. I have yet to be told be anyone watching my autocross runs that I have lifted a wheel, but if I were to it would be the inside rear. I have had many people ride in my car since the upgrades. Several have said that it is by far the best handling Impreza they have ever been in. I am on version 5 struts with 5Zigen springs (which is unfortunately a very overdamped combo) and the car will out corner almost anythign on the road. Once the Ohlins are done and they go in I have no doubts that my car will handle on par with anything on the road.
