Anyone have real Rear Sway Bar Commentary/Race review

VWVortex.com - Road Racing - forums.vwvortex.com
We've been running our 2000 Jetta in AER now for 3 years, and finally got to the point where we ended up literally breaking the beam in the back.

Car has always had a Black Forest Bar (which always broke, thankfully the hardware didn't come loose and let it fall out). We eventually designed our own rear 'toe control' setup for the back which helped tremendously, however now we're looking into alternator rear sway bar options.

Obviously there seems to be the three styles, the fixed style that bolts to the shock bolts and clamps bar, the end link style which still clamps bar, and then the drill and fill in beam bars.

IMO the Shine Auto bar does seem to the 'best' option to run (most secure, and most stiff) however are there any downfalls to the clamp style? In my experience we used to have bad luck with the clamp style on our B14 Sentras as they'd come loose even in an HPDE day

Just looking for opinions/insight on what everyone else runs.

Application: endurance racing (20 hours a weekend) 2000 Jetta
