On the older WRXs we upgrade the endlinks because the factory units are plastic and with upgraded sways and aggressive driving they will snap, I'm not sure if the 3g WRXs have the plastic endlinks but if they do I'd upgrade them asap with the upgraded sways and suspension

As my .02, I prefer a little bit of oversteer. I haven't done it to my STi just yet, but that's next on the list. I intend for it to be fairly neutral, with a a slighter tendency to oversteer. Adjustable bars will be key, as I haven't done it in an AWD car, but powersliding (aka drifting) is faster than understeering if you control it. You have to counter steer, but you cut the corner a little bit earlier to maximize exit speed. All the cars (or karts) I have raced in have had a slight tendency to oversteer, which when learned is very controllable and fast. Just wanted to throw that out there. I'll be switching my bars with something like a 24 in front and rear. I'll post thoughts and results after I've done it.

^In that case just throw a rear bar on and see how much oversteer you get

I have my rear 22mm bar on stiff, front 25mm bar on soft, and it's pretty neutral. I would almost go with a slightly smaller front bar to get a bit more oversteer as you're absolutely right, if you can induce oversteer and know how to control it you can be faster... It's also fun!

Chris: That's kind of what I'm looking for. Neutral and maybe slight understeer.
