new sways

hey guys i just installed me new hotchkis street sways and i can't really tell the difference. i took it on some 25mph cirluar freeway ramps and it feels really close to stock. i took them at about 50 and one i took at about 65 but then my rear tire started to skid out. well i have an auto GT, with tein springs and stock GT wheel and tires. i'm almost sure that my stock tire were the main reason that the back drifted out, but the suspension doen't feel that much better. i put the sways on the soft setting, does anyone know if that is still better than stock, how will the race setting affect me in those circular ramps? thanks for any helpful insights.

interesting. I hear that those sways change almost everything about the feel of the car. Maybe its because oyu are on the soft setting. Step it up to race or whatever.

i noticed a big difference with them. i had it at the softer setting at first but then went to the stiffer one...well...just because thats how i am. i changed all my suspension in about a week's time so i got to see what every piece added to the handling. take a stock celica at 65 around a 25mph recommended corner and see what happens. then tell me theres not a difference. wink or take it on a windy road. i love mine.
