Right guys ive heard back from torsion performance and they have said they will do 6 27mm bars for 135 plus delivery or if we can get 10 people then it will be 130 plus delivery. Can i start a list on here for people who definatley want a 27mm bar (please bare in mind that you will need to check your tailing arms to ensure the bar has enough room to pass through)

1. Mossy x 1 bar

I'd be happy if it was a 30mm Arb available?

Gone for 27 as a compromise between track and road. The more people i spoke to the more said 30 would be too much for a daily and 24 is standard so have plucked for 27

The offside trailing arm will need to be machined to fit the 27mm arb. Thats why there was a hybrid ARB made up to fit without having to modifying the trailing arms? 28.5mm on the Near Side and 25.4mm on the Off Side.

Actually pretty sure that the new trailing arms available now do not need machining but I may be wrong

I'm thinking about changing to a 30mm ARB. Currently have a hybrid bar but my beam can take 30mm.

Whats the benefit of a 30? Are you wanting 30s just for track use or fast road?

Ill be honest and say that my Rallye with 30mm arb and 23mm tbs is perfectly acceptable for road use with coilovers with correct spring rates to match even on the bumpy surrey roads I find it more than acceptable. In fact it's awesome Smile

I have 21mm tbs and b8s so think 30 would be too much?

benefit? its stiffer.

I'm not a fan of big arb's on road cars, moves the back around too much on the lanes, better to just up the spring rate but you do need decent dampers.

And decent shocks are what in your eyes? Surely 30mm arb would be too much for 21s

Handles very predictably and you have oversteer on tap when needed (usually when i've gone in too fast...)

Mine isn't about straight out speed, more about predictable fun on a 80% road car that can wallop down bumpy B roads without loosing too much traction.


Adam please give some good advice here ?
Sadly I don't think many of us know what does what TBS & ARB ???

I'm really happy with my totally rebuilt 21tbs & Stnd 24arb recommended by Andy/Jord294 who knows his stuff !!!!!
I'm similar to you Adam ...70% road & 30% track ...
Always willing to upgrade as long as my fillings don't get rattled out ?

As Mei said don't want my car hopping all over the road on solid mounts

Would bigger TBS as Mei said be needed or better than just a big ARB with 21 TBS....for a 70/30 car ????
