Here is a file from TIP engineering with some common bars and their respective stiffness values. I will be making a more detailed post on how to use these numbers and what they mean shortly.

Didn't I explain it all when I first posted that?

I thought I did and it would save you time from having to retype everything.

Did that thread ever happen to materialize? I bought a set of Tanabe's last year, front and rear. Looking at the chart seems to suggest to my understanding that they really help the car turn in and/or rotate. This could make for an interesting setup on my car once I put them on...

I run on track with the Tanabe Sustec bars and I'm pleased with the results thus far. The car is shod with RSR Race springs 677f/400r and KYB Gr2, this set up leaves the car somewhat compliant on the street, and very predictable on the track. It was just fun, exciting and fatiguing after 1.5 hours of track time.
I think with your set up you will have even more control over the suspension and be able to dial it in nicely.

For Competition ,the factory MA70 teams had 3 basic bars to choose from: 25mm ,31mm and 32mm. Additionally for some tracks and conditions ,the stiffens of the bars was dynamically controlled by the driver with variance between 20mm and 40mm.
