*waves to the MX-5* / Autocross this Sunday
No sooner do I get the new MX-5 than I give up the new MX-5. Temporarily, of course. Dan apparently wants to put on a new front sway bar before this autocross. I'm hoping to get it back as soon as the autocross is over, but I didn't mention that to Dan before leaving the shop today. I know that would require bringing the street tires to the autocross (or going back to the shop). I dunno. We'll see what happens.

Aaaaaannnnnd, don't forget the autocross this Sunday! Information on the Spokes website. Basic configuration, entry, and exit info is here, and a map of the proposed course is here.

It was a zoo there, today. I ended up just standing in the background and yelling to John as he ran by to do something else.

I saw what looked like a lot of DriveTime cars there. And by "a lot" I mean probably more than 10. And they were constantly coming and going.

A new front sway bar? That sort of implies that the old one is bent or something? Or am I not understanding this right?

So... Uh... The front sway bar on the car is in fine shape, but it's not what Dan would like the car to have. Different sway bars have different properties and are desirable for different things. Dan wants a different one on the car, apparently.

The size of the swaybar determines how a car understeers or oversteers in sweepers. The larger one worked with the 16x8 wheels, but with the offset 18" rubber, the car wants to push more, so back to a smaller swaybar.
