Yea, adjusting my sways wouldnt hurt. You've got UUC sways, right? What do you have them set at. I think my front is in the middle and rear is at full soft.

I swear with these spring rates it seems like sways arent even necessary. I dont feel any body roll, on the street atleast.

Mine are set at full tight all around. I fine tune them for every event though, it depends on where I'm at and how I'm driving. Sometimes even at the end of the day for the last session I'll dial in a little more understeer, because I know I'm tired and my reflexes aren't their sharpest. I'd rather start pushing through the turn and have to let off the throttle, then have to worry about quick snap recovery action with the wheel. Car's more predicatable with a little bit of push, but faster and I'm able to throttle-steer better mid turn when the rear is a little loose. I think it just comes down to personal preference and experience.
