hi guys, anyone here installed ultra racing bar can give some review of it? do they really make a huge different to your car when cornering or going at high speed? thinking of installing stage 1 to my honda city but not sure worth or not. what are the pros and cons? will it affect the car smoothness like become more uncomfy or something?

I plan to install on my Myvi tomorrow. Total cost is below RM600.

I don't think it will affect smoothness, perhaps a little more harsh to your ride? Reduction of body roll should be apparent.

i have install stage on my vios, and the feeling is excellent.

pro : car handling are better, and can corner at higher speed (tire need to be good as well)

cons : if you met accident, other side will get damage as well. vehicle getting heavy a bit (2 metal bar installed)

it does not make my ride uncomfortable

if you want to know better, install the bar one by one to get the different given by each bar.

i recommend to install front strut tower, drive few days
handling will get better, cornering, bumpy road

then install rare anti roll bar (ARB)
you can corner at higher speed, cause it will press down the car when you cornering (reduce body roll)

with ARB maybe you can say your ride become uncomfortable, it is depend on how to look at it.
cause both rare suspension are more sensitive and transfer the weight one one side to another.

buy on same time to get better discount.


at raining day, when you know your car can go higher, you might want to go more speed
but then dont forget that tire is the one that connect your car to the road
good tire is very important as well

if you improve car stability (after install bar), but tire grip still the same, higher speed cornering still the same, danger.

Rear Anti Roll bar for me is good enough.
Strut bar may not even give you any improvement.

Take larger anti roll bars first. Then if you have to choose between a front strut or a front lower brace, go for the brace first. Personally felt more difference with it on my previous car.

For me yes, but how much difference it gives on a car with rear torsion beam set up, I'm not sure. I see plenty of drivers still cornering like a snail on the right lane in such cars.

What tyres are you using anyway? E spec or V spec city? Try changing to better tyres first.

Better. I have a colleague who had viking tyres on his pewjiot 408. During corners the tyres just flex like shit and the car understeers badly.
