- 034Motorsport (Soft) - 153% Rate Increase vs. Factory Volkswagen GTI (20mm) Rear Sway Bar ...which is why I plan to increase the rear rate a bit by re-adjusting the 25.4mm rear bar. These rate increases come from 034...

This looks like fun, and well balanced...I should be clear that I am not autocrossing this car, road courses only. I autocrossed a fair amount in the early to mid 80s...never went very far with it because I began to go to road courses and dual setups were tedious...but I very much enjoyed autocrossing...maybe I should give it try again...
Yeah I primarily track mine as well.

Actual track testing done here:
There's a reason I didn't go with the H&R recommended 28mm front with the 26mm rear. I had no measurements to go off of initially, but wanted to err on the side of a softer FSB upgrade. I suspect more bar would require a grippier tire and/or increasing rear spring rate to further help balance/overall grip.
