H-Sport Competition Rear Sway Bar

H-Sport Competition Rear Sway Bar 
The Hsport (Hotchkis sport)Competition Rear Sway bar is the same as a solid 22mm swaybar. The difference is this bar is a hollow bar allowing us to save almost 8lbs over any solid bar. To do this the bar is 25.5mm, tubular, 4130 chrome moly sway bar weighing in at only 5.5 pounds! So the effective rate of the bar is equal to a solid 22mm bar.

The Hotchkis Competition Rear Sway bar has three adjustment positions with the softest setting being the more neutral balance. The middle setting will really aid the Mini's medium to long mid-corner speed where there will not be any throttle feathering needed to turn the car. The stiffest setting is most beneficial through very slow, tight corners where without the bar you would find yourself on and off throttle several times. With the Competition Rear sway bar, this type of corner should only be a one throttle application corner with a rear-steer feel. Although handling characteristics may vary depending on your set-up, each position of the Competition Rear sway bar is very distinct and useful. Now you have an advantage at the track and auto-cross course! The set comes complete with 2 polyurethane bushings, 2 bushing brackets with 90-degree zerk fittings for easy lubrication, One tube of sway bar grease and one Hsport competition sway bar.

Rate increase over stock. Rear: +226%, +294% & +383%

I love this sway bar! Great turn in and excellent rotation in the middle of the corner. Great for autocross.

Holy Crap ! Next to putting in a 17% supercharger pulley, this is number 2 on my list of "must do mods" for the MCS. I can practically make 90 degree turns at roadway speeds, back end hunkers right into corners. AWESOME ! YOU GOTTA GET THIS BAR !


Author: Dwight W.
BIG TIME improvement in turn-in and steering feel. Can "toss" it now with confidence and this at the lowest stiffness setting. GET ONE!!

Way Motor Works installed this swaybar on my 2006 MINI Cooper S a couple of months ago and since then I've noticed a huge difference on the handling. I was also highly satisfied with the service I received at WMW, and I would strongly recommend this mod.

Okay, car now turns!!!! Next to a pulley this is the best mod I know for an R53. Its lighter then other bars, with the proper adjustment and a good alignment car is right on neutral. No Squeaks due to the grease zerks. Finish is durable and doesn't rust like some of the bars out there...

I installed this on my 2006 MCS just after the SCCA changed their rules concerning rear sway bars for stock class cars, at the end of 2011. It has made a tremendous difference in the turn-in and amount of body roll (not that there was much to start with). The rear end now rotates predictably and controllably. Because of the flatter cornering I can also start to apply more throttle sooner as I am exiting the corners.

On the street I keep it on full soft. For auto-x I use full stiff. On the track, depending upon the tires, track, and conditions I will use all three settings.

No problems with any NVH.

Thanks for the recommendation. You guys were spot on!

I was surprised when Way suggested I get the comp rear sway bar and the front sway bar for my 2004 MCS when I told him I wanted just a regular rear sway bar. It's a daily driver and I wasn't looking for outrageous performance, but I took his suggestion and am really happy I did. The set up (with JCW struts & TSW springs) is great on the street while making the car feel noticeably stiffer in the twisty bits.

Had this installed today. Roads were wet from rain, so I took it a little easy, but I can feel the difference already.
