Hey Dragula,
if you need weight transfer to the rear, then yes i would remove or disconnect it. Are you having problems with traction, don't know how fast you're car is, or how much power it's putting out. it will help if you have a good rear setup, and if the motor is strong enough to pull the weight.

its easy

Its easy to do, worth a try.
In my case it made a noticable diff in 60' times. Nothing huge but consistantly measurable.

Sorry to invade your thread. How will this affect the streetability of a car? Not a DD, but need to drive 100 miles round trip to the drags.

if you've ever driven a car with no front sway bar and then put one on there is a big difference in handling. what you could is just remove the end links when you get to the track. Then when you drive home put them back on.

when I had my car on the street it wasnt realy bad. You get used to it . Your not going to take entrance and exit ramps at highway speed . Around town you'll be just fine. But no hugging corners.
