agree... the most important lesson I learned with my ‘73 911 is that you should learn to drive it at the limit (track, etc.) before changing things. Lots of people tweak things before they really know how to handle the basic setup.The added 50-70whp that the 19" sway bar adds makes this not only an ultimate handling machine (near GTR territory) but significantly ups the power output. I would say if you are not used to driving an ultra high performance car with this sort of modification, than your new hot rod is NOT suitable for a novice female drivers who hasn't driven high performance cars for at least 3 decades.
But all's well that end's well. I'm glad that the car isn't totaled and that nobody is hurt. But remember adding a significant handling and power boost to your car changes the driving dynamics insurmountably. To compensate you'd need to change the entire suspension, add Brembo brakes, and lower the car.
Having a family myself, safety is of the utmost importance. Switch the bar back to 16" and save lives.
In my 911 my instructor said in session 1 at Mid-Ohio that I was close to the limits of my car’s [stock] suspension, tires, etc. ... by mid-session 2 I’d hit the limit, overdriving my street tires, hanging with more powerful cars with R1s etc.
last thing I’d want my grandkids in is a lifted vehicle due to inherent instability. I’ve seen too many rollovers, often from drivers‘ over correction.
