Swaybars have a strange history in Desert Racing & Rock Crawling, strange in that most companies believe you can't tell right from wrong...
In a way its kind of easy to agree with them, after all, it saves you quite a bit of time spent testing to make it perfect. However, I am not going to tell you that I can make you a "Universal Swaybar" like everyone else. It is the impossible dream.
Swaybars are interdependant on too many factors to be that easy. Think about it for a minute before you buy that Anti-stuff and call it good. If we were all racing a car that was built exactly the same it would be true but only to a point...
What makes the difference?
1. Chassis width at the mounting point
2. Chassis weight
3. Arm length required
4. Drivers Style
All of these factors have inter-relationships that must also be considered. Narrow chassis's require longer arms but if thats not possible the bar needs to flex more. But that dosen't even take driving style into account. Some drivers feel perfectly fine doing things that would make another driver wet his pants.
That brings us to what we have to offer. We offer the tools you need so you can create a Swaybar that perfectly suits your driving style and your car. So far there are just 3 pieces but tommorrow we will be adding the Bars themselves with some interesting variations to help you get there!
I will add pics of the bar itself tommorrow but its really pretty straightforward, looks just like a double splined 35 spline axle shaft. However it is made out of 4340 or 300M and included in the cost you would get one adjustment. I don't have the final prices yet on them and won't til tommorrow...
And some more pics for those of you sitting on the edge of your seats waiting!
The Bars themselves are made by Dean from Performance Cryogenics and they have a Lifetime Guarantee. The Complete Kit also come's with one complimentary tuning. We would start you very close to what we would see as optimal and the Tuning consists of turning the Bar down 1/16" for a softer ride.
To test your Swaybar you need to understand the difference between Short Course and Open Desert. But if you plan on being the "Go Fast" guy, you also need a slightly softer bar. When tuning a Swaybar you should be testing on a short course and in reality the only way to know what "Feel" you like best is to take it slightly too far past your comfort level. You tune your Bar to the point that it starts getting loose in the corners, at that point you have your Go Fast bar and you know what you need for the Short Course bar
