Thanks Silver.

I am believe that it's not the wheels that make the car, but the drop and the wheels in combination. As long as your wheels/tires fill the majority of the wheel well (lowered) and you don't have hub caps (or just steelies), just about any "wheel" will look good.

I really like that first picture too. it's one of my favorite race shots.

Casey has the best action shots hands down! I love the first picture and the one in the signature with VVVVVVVVRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMM!
How do you like that sway bar, Casey? Big difference after 19mm Tibby bar or not really?

Thanks Talgat, for the compliments...

as for the difference between the 2 bars.. well.......

I took off the racing suspension in November. And because I couldn't get the F'in endlinks off, I had to remove the sway too. (long story, don't ask). So, basically, all winter I drove on stock, squishy suspension and no rear sway. just a few weeks ago, I put the coilovers back in (without the new springs I ordered ::grumble grumble:: ) and put the new bar in. I did get to race, but it was on all seasons, and on wet pavement.

I haven't really done much "race" driving to determine how effective the bar is, nor do I have a really strong basis for comparison. During the race though, the car reacted well to my Left-foot braking. I had the rotation where I wanted it. I would have liked MORE though, but I think it also has to do with my crappy alignment (and those darn camber plates that give me NOTHING! ). We'll just have to see what happens when I get some camber bolts, and my sticky tires on.

What tyres are you using in those photo's, because you look awfully grippy. I can't wait till the Koni's get made so I can get a bit more performance out of my GT @ the autocrosses.
