K-brace, alloy arms, and 22 front and rear is what beast runs, and he never understeers on the road. The track I'm I recall was slightly wollowy though. But I'm of the opinion that sways and struts are only half the recipe. What's the point in doing all that work, and neglecting the fact all your bushes up front are squishing around and not maintaining their ideal geometry. I noticed massive gains in beast just by installing the k-brace. Turn in and hairpins improved markedly. More gains could be had I'm sure by additional bracing, improving the strut brace and fender braces (but I shan't with beast, I like him how he is at the moment).
The rear lateral arm pillowball joints also improved stability massively, and going to the cusco gold 22mm sway bars improved high speed grip, which is the focus on the track if you think about it, I did not notice any bias change with the sway bars, but I did go 20 f/r to 22 f/r, equal change front and rear.
But yeah, I'd say focus on the rest of the handling package too, don't try correct anything by playing with only two components, make sure all else up front is up to the task before changing bias with sway bars.
<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.

<Reuben>: I feel like when you stomp the throttle in Blighter, it's like you've startled an old man!
