Should I get a rear upper tie bar? (long) (archive)

Posted by dave on October 05, 2000 at 12:36:42:

I just got the upper tie bar in the engine bay and I think it made a huge difference, a good one, in the way the car handles. Is it a good idea to get the rear one too? You know to balance out the car's handling?

Also, with the front tie bar I am eliminating flex in the front half of the car around a corner. But without the rear tie bar the flex is still in the rear of the car around the corner. So it seems to me like the frame is effectively twisting now around a corner because the rear is flexing and the front is not. Is my thinking correct? Please help me out on this one.
