The Neuf bar will take the inside rear wheel to almost weightless at about 1 degree of body roll:

    that pretty much negates any sort of benefit on a track....unless you use coilovers and have it dialed in just right so the wheels DONT lift. maybe the extra rigidity helps in daily driving (or at least the placebo effect comes into play) lol

    Just my $.02 ...

    I upgrade BOTH the rear and front bars. Rear bar NEU-F 28mm, Front at NEU-F 25mm.

    I had the rear done first and drove for a long while before deciding to upgrade the front. Once the front was done I noticed a huge change in handling for the better - more planted, less sway, very controlled over rough country roads.

    I'd say do the front after the rear to get the most benefit.

    I'd think the DNA might be a hard sell, having to remove the rear suspension?
