    Took another win last round at round 4 of lonestar drift at Texas Motor Speedway. Here are all the battles to keep this thing updated:



    The car is working better than ever with the addition of the front sway bar. I put a 30mm TMS solid front bar on it, and welded some sway bar link tabs to the MG control arms. The car stays much flatter in drift now, and is planting the inside rear tire MUCH better than ever before. Now when I get on the throttle, the car moves forward and not just more sideways. It really is incredible how much rear grip the car gained without changing anything in the rear end at all. Now I am going to move the links to the struts for even more leverage on the bar and see if I can get this thing 3 wheeling! I was able to run down some of the fastest lonestar drift drivers with ease, whereas I would have to pedal the car and be really careful with the throttle and angle input to stay near them before. I went 2 OMTs against my buddy Fielding Shredder, and admittedly he was the only car that had more grip than me, but he was on a significantly faster tire (Kenda KR20A 265/35-18), which I didn't find out about until after I knocked him out. Once he had to change tires for our 3rd battle and swapped back to regular KR20 like I was on, it was game over.

    Tl;dr If you have the power and can handle more snap in the car, put a front sway bar on. You'll run over all your competition if you don't already have a significant one. Round 5 is in a few weeks. Going to try to take home another podium!
