Best sway bar for occasional drag racing

Best sway bar for occasional drag racing. Don't drag a lot. Mabey once a year in season. Do drive the car on weekends around town and about.

If you only drag about once a year just take it off before the event.

But honestly for once a year i would just leave it on as it is, only take it off if you are serious about racing.

I could almost pick up a heavyweight stock front wheel/tire on a sticky rear tire, no power adder, with BBP suspension so, I don't think a once a year drag racer is giving away much by having the bars in.

I never ran a front sway bar on the street or at the track.

If you only go to the strip once or twice per season.......leave the car just the way it is......you will never know the difference and you won't have to worry about it.
In all my years of drag racing I have never run a front or rear sway bar...although a couple of times getting out of shape at 100+mph made me think about it...just a couple of times.
Seat time at the strip makes a big difference and with only an hour of seat time every year....no need to take it off.
Now if you are going to burn corners at 2 to 3 times the posted limit....don't take it off....IMHO

An hour of seat time, at 12 seconds per pass, is 300 passes. Yeehaw.

Don't forget waiting in the line, and then returning back to the line/pits lol.

Drag racing

Never took it off and I wouldn't replace it with an after market, kind of a waste of money.
Don't need it when u r going straight.
I've gone to the strip some test and tunes and been there from 6 to 11 pm and go 2 passes.
Guys will break, or blow oil all over the track. I've walked 15000 steps killing time there.
I'd have a beer or two but that would be a requeim for disaster!
