Don't question Mark!

Seriously, I have spoken to people who have driven Mark's car and didn't like the way it drove (I drove it and it felt wonderful). I go back to the fact that Mark is one of the fastest guys around (in any car), and assume that he is usually right - whether it seems so or not.

His advice to try and tune is good stuff. One of the reasons he is so fast is that he will rent a parking lot for a day of trial and error!

You're right, of course. That's why I said that I no longer worry about all this (thus the "too much tension for an old man...") but it's still an interesting exercise.

Not to open a can of worms, but it's possible that your bar is so stiff that it's keeping the inside front wheel from reaching full rebound excursion under hard cornering. Remember that when you push down on the outside corner, you load the bar and it's pushing UP on the opposite lower suspension arm to keep the car more level (thus the "antisway" connotation).

I don't know this for sure, but it's a reasonable explanation. Just a little more mind exercise - it can't hurt.....
