Trial and error with suspension setups.. People can suggest an estimate then you need to refine it yourself. No such things as a perfect setup. On a race grid full of the same cara with the same specs there won't be any with the same geo setup as another.

I'd start at 400lb and go from there.

What we could all benefit from is a proper bladed anti-roll bar. This would provide adjustability that standard cars don't have, unfortunately no such thing exists for our cars that I know of.

On race cars you can get an anti roll bar then at either end it has a blade/knife like part, this can then be twisted to produce difference levels of stiffness. Very difficult to explain on here..

Google it

Pugsport dont make torsion bars anymore do they, dont think they do ARBs either.

Spoox do and IM Axles produce the 25mm though.

The blade type roll bars utilise a thin "blade" in place of the tube section on one end of the bar. This blade can be rotated so that the force is applied to the blade at varying angles. When the blade is flat (say 0 degrees) then it will flex quite easily. on edge (90 degrees) it will be very stiff and will not bend easily. so you essentially get an infinitely adjustable (within it's range) arb
