Track Pack Swaybar-Settings

I am installing a Track Pack 5-way adjustable swaybar on my car. The car has the sport pack with the standard non-adjustable swaybar. I am using RE-71R Bridgestone tires (205,245) and will be autocrossing and driving on the street,anybody have any opinion on what holes to start with on the bar? Thanks Rich

Do you have more camber? If not all the way stiff, if so maybe still all the way stiff, you are on sport pack springs?

Just FYI I found 25 psi front ~26 rear hot was a good AX pressure on those tires, might save you some time experimenting.

Full stiff. As I mentioned in your other sway bar thread in the Elise sub forum, the track pack adjustable bar seems like it's about the same outer dimension and weight as the base bar... but with adjustability. You can likely get around 140% the stiffness of the base bar, but nothing like the 200% and 300% ranges of the BWR S/T and hardcore bars (approximate figures), respectively. Most of the Lotus auto-xers I know use either of those two bars - hence why I suggest using full stiff on your bar.

Of course, it's all about the complete tune. You can use alignment and damper adjustments (if you have them) to further alter rotation characteristics.

Start with a set of parameters, try them. Adjust as necessary.
