    Default What handling upgrades are available?

    I've currently fitted coilovers, droplinks, rear control arms and eibach camber bolts but are there anymore upgrades available? i've been trying to find uprated anti roll bars but can only find them for the vectra b. Does anyone know of anything or have i got it as good as its going to get? Don't get me wrong the handling is great but i'm of to europe to do the alps/stelvio pass/ ring etc so i want is the best i can get it.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Put a map-of-the-Nurburgring-sticker on your bootlid, that'll help the handling no end.

    i want to keep it practical inside as its my car i use to get to work go out with mates with. Ive got a stripped out clio 172 for proper fast road/track. Uprated antiroll bars, uprated engine mounts don't effect practicality like a cage would.

    I'm currently looking into suspension options and what can be changed etc as I want the handling to be the best it can be ready for my new lump.

    the only option would be if the vxr runs bigger ones. it would need front and back doing. just doing the front could lead to excessive understeer and just doing the back could cause it to become rather tail happy.

    I think on the front ARB there is about a 1.2mm difference between standard and uprated, the rear has the biggest difference as basic cars are 16mm and Vauxhall list them up to 19mm.
