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 read that the anti roll bar is kinda dangerous during rainy day... hmm.gif trying to find all the pros and cons now

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)
*
does it make ur ride uncomfortable? how is the cornering during rainy day compared to before u installed it?

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

QUOTE(TDUEnthusiast @ Apr 17 2017, 08:32 AM)
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.
*
seems lik quite a number of ppl says tht strut bar doesnt really improve much or u cant really feel the difference. so its better to chg anti roll bar first?

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.
*
E spec, gonna change better tyres after 10k service next month

cheapest handling performance is adding those bars
if u want performace, suggest u upgrade ur alloy rims to japanese light weight rims to 205/45/17 and add on Continental sport contact or michellin PS4. expect good cornering,sacrifice comform, go thru pothole with caution
*
i currently have my eyes on advanti storm s1 rims as well as yokohama fleva v701 tyres, dun really race or anything so i think these should b enough as i still wan my car to b comfy. honestly i just wan my car to be able to corner without losing control n slowing down too much

i put front bar for my saga flx 1.6se and changed stock rim to 16inch paired with rovelo sports A1 size 205 45 16r and put sports spring.. handling and cornering is much better.. yet still maintaining the comfort level about 90% from OEM..

Planning to put ARB by end of May..

wat sport spring r u using?

Installed FSB today, the difference is apparent in a carpark with many sharp turns. The front feels planted to the ground even when you speed up a little faster than normal during the sharp turn. But that's not advisable in a carpark of course, later hit someone.
*
hmm...so other than that what other different do u feel? good? bad?

It's probably a psychological effect, but I feel the front is heavier lol

It feels good of course when you turn and your car does not feel "lifted" off the ground on one side. But the real difference is when you install the rear ARB, next week only I can install coz no stock now.

remember come bak here to post review, i might go install the strut bar this weekend

You better do some reading first about what the functions of each bar coz they serve different purpose to fine tune the handling. Actually in the UR website they also got some explanation and illustration there, so go read that first. If you want to know which bar give the most noticeable impact, then it's the anti-roll bars because it reduces body roll during hard cornering by tying up the left & right suspension more/harder. Other bars like strut bars are more to just stiffen the chassis so the improvement would not be as noticeable as anti-roll bars. As for whether it's more dangerous in the wet, it depends on what bars you use and in which area. If you stiffen the rear too much compared to the front then you increase the over steer tendency which will be more pronounced in the wet. But for wet handling tires is more critical, so buy good ones. That's why you need to read and have some knowledge about the functions of the bars to suite your car and your driving preference, not just blindly install (unless you simply install all).
*
yea i already did some research n reading on the website and past thread d. just here to get some info from people that have installed regarding ride becoming not so comfy as well as how much improvement is there.

You can do some reading here:

http://www.rabbittyreshop.com/ultra-racing

Per 6UE5T, you need to know what's​ the purpose of the bars and what is suited for you. What people normally buy is either ARB alone or both ARB + FSB (if budget allows).
*
btw, u installed in rabbit tyre?

I may have paid a premium price coz I'm not good at negotiating.

FSB + ARB = RM570.

Something like RM180 + RM390
