    I am not sure at this point. There have been a few failures and I am looking into improving the design.

    Current project: DIY Nitrous oxide setup for ~$100

    Good news. I just sent new drawings off to the manufacturer to be quoted. The goal of these new revisions are to increase the life of the sway bar as there have been a few failures. I'm hoping to have a quote back this week and then place the order for more bars soon after.

    I never realized how flimsy the trailing axles are in these cars. I have one on the floor from a wreck and was moving it around the other day. It wobbled around like spaghetti. It's slightly more rigid while bolted in the car but still....

    I don't want to go back through 15 pages of thread so I may be asking a question that's been asked ans answered already, Have you considered finding a sway bar that you can adapt to the Mirage and just need to fab up mounting brackets for it?

    Looks like the bar just clamps to the trailing axle at two points and at a simple mount at the shock bolt at the ends Name:  1310941supported.jpg

    And then you can buy a Mirage to put it on!

    I'll likely want two as having very different handling between my '14 and '17 won't fly.
