      please post back here with your thoughts after you have had a chance to drive with the sway bar - - - :D

      Thank you very much!

      As for the RRR bar, we just had one show up that we are going to be testing, thanks to @TravAZ. We are interested in testing it to see what it was doing and how to improve it further.

      You do not need the RRR bar, just pull your stock bar and get you a 1 1/2 inch square tube of steel or alum. that will slide inside. @MACAWS did this with his and I think it is 1 1/2 inch, you may have to trim the corners a little to make it work

      Have to say all this swaying is making me feel little dizzy. But will say that is gonna be next mod for me as well. Thanks to all the commentary on sway bar from all you fine people that want to help me spend my money.. Really sounds like that is a good mod, so will have to look into this.
      @MiM if you here of a slightly used one let me know, cause you don’t want RED.

      JUST SAYIN

      Not much to it. Macaws installed steel plates in his and I put the 1.5 inch steel bar in mine. Remove the radiator support, remove the round bushings from the ends of the radiator support, cut the 2.5 inch square tube to length, place the end of the support on a piece of wood, insert the tube from the other end, using another piece of wood on the end of the tube, drive it in. After it is inserted use a step drill to open up the holes in the tube where the mounting bolts go through. Not sure if this is needed, but I also cut the bushings down to fit inside of the tube. Reinstall it and you are done.

      There may be some looking to get the new DDM one and will have their old lock-less bar to sell... I'll keep my eye out... ;)

      If you have stock bushings (some models apparently stopped provided them), then you may be okay without the locks of the new bars...?

      I think... :huh:

      “We are interested in testing it to see what it was doing“ is the part I am most interested in since I am a non believer that it did anything. Never did it myself, not disputing any claims from anyone who has, just a non believer, @Dave@DDMWorks I trust will get some facts.

      Does it compare to what is done on the Mustangs and the Camero's under the hood?
      The Camaro and Mustang both use struts in the front. A strut will see side loading and so a strut brace that goes across the engine bay will help with those side loads. The Slingshot uses shocks with A arms on the front, which means that the shocks to not see side loading like a strut and the control arms carry the side loads. Completely different setups and how the braces work would be different.

      Yes, there is a comparison, which doesn’t make me a believer. Mustangs and Camaro’s are not built on space frames such as the SlingShot. Mustangs and Camaro’s have outboard rear wheels which will cause the body to twist where as the SlingShot has one centered wheel that the body pivots on. Not arguing, I have no facts to prove my thought process, just not convinced the frame is twisting in hard cornering. That is why I am very interested in Dave’s findings.

      Thank you @Dave@DDMWorks, I love the way you are willing to take the time to help those of us with less knowledge learn and understand these things

      I would like to ask you about the settings on the DDM sway bar. how would you rate the two settings, are both settings what you would call moderate, or is one moderate and the other more of a track setting?

      Typically we use the further from the front hole (lower rate) for vehicles that are more stock and the closer to the front hole (higher rate) for vehicles that generate higher cornering loads.

      I am glad I asked about this - now I feel comfortable making a decision that is actually based on my needs instead of just buying the one that has the highest torsional stiffness - - - I think it is fairly clear that going with that extreme with how I use my Slingshot probably would not have been the best choice and could have actually hurt drivability for the way I use my Slingshot.

      thank you all who have helped to educate me - - - I like that I can make mods knowing why I am choosing what I am choosing and not just buying based on hype. :)
