the increase in speed you noticed through the corner you noticed (which I kinda doubt you experimented with scientifically, kinda scares me to try!) may have been due mostly to reduced camber change in the corner.

OR, from better dividing up the cars weight between front and rear.

and yeah, when I get some sort of adjustable strut setup, I will experiment with going back to the stock front sway bar and set my rear bar softer.

I think tuning the understeer/oversteer is cruicial though, IMO. When I went to a 22mm adj. rear sway and endlinks, I noticed the car being very uneven but at the same time, I could not get the back end to swing out. When I put the 20mm front sway on, I have noticed the car being MUCH more nuetral and definately better handling than stock. I can take a corner much faster with more confidence because of the predictability and the front end not dipping as much as it was. It will be interesting to see what happens when I go to a coilover system. I'll more than likely have to either stiffen or loosen the rear sway to adjust.

This is with stock springs/struts and 17" wheels with Yoko AVS Sports.
