Default Spohn Drag bar? Thoughts?

I have been looking into the spohn drag rear sway bar and wanted a few reviews on it. People who are running it, is it worth the 400 bucks? how is the adjustability? did you really notice the difference? Whats your overall thoughts about the peice?

Thanks!

Wow, is it $400 now, I don't think I paid that much.
Nice piece, responds well to adjustment, easy to install, not bad on the street, works VERY well at the track.
Only drawback is the weight, it's VERY heavy.

I just bought one, definately a quality piece. Sorry can't give any feedback as it's not installed yet. My buddy runs one and he loves it..

No offense but I think its a little much for a 13 second car.

But if you need it, its well worth the price.

yup i agree actually i rocked out the stock rear bar into the mid 11s with good results being and auto...pulled some 1.54 60fts being SI

once i got the cam i was breaking loose on the start put the drag bar in and seems to be working good although i only have one pass on it...pulled a 1.41...

worth the money if you got over 400 rwhp if not stay with the stocker...

I still run the stock bar w/ an airbag. If your car launches nice and isn't twisting up, the $400 might be better spent elsewhere. Since we're throwing #'s out there, I go 1.31 on my stocker on radials.
