Our host had two bars.  I got the adjustable one, even though I just set it at the middle setting.  Mounting was a bit of a problem but no exhaust clearance issues.

Which rear bar did you select to install? Any exhaust system clearance issues?

Thanks!

My experience, (some form of road racing for about 40 years), has show for this installation, the sway bar will maintain the wheels relative position and transfer the weight shift in a turn diagonally across the vehicle, (keeps that right front tire on the ground instead of spinning).  After I installed it I ran around in back hills of Oregon and was really pleased.  The autox was the final test.  No understeer, no oversteer just basically neutral.

Depends on the set up. Use a road type sway bar and you'll be impressed. The thick bar may lift the inner wheel.

That's not what you would expect. You'd expect your sway bar equipped car to lift it's rear tire.

Finally got the Mini out to an autox.  Boy what a nice change in the handling with the rear swaybar.  No more understeering (plowing), and I can even get on the power in a tight right turn (left hand steering).  Fun to get out and tear her around in 2nd gear on a tight course.
