That's pretty normal and even the slightest slip will register as such on a PDR. The driver still needs to actively manage any major overslip even with TC on (in PTM Race) and especially when tires get hot and greasy, lest TC will cut power (or the rear brakes off - whichever happens first )

PTM race on will still allow the car fully around.
I am controlling slides with it on but intervens what I want to do. I think its actually making situation worse.

Power cut is annoying

Agree fully. But it is also a good warning sign of overdriving the rears. Without TC one would likely need to lift anyway not to spin. Proly leading to the same end result: slow exit

Ya that's what 911 drivers say lol

I am not a crew chief type, so cant really offer detailed scenarios except for the obvious: if your bigger bars have the same F to R ratio as the stockers then overall balance should be the same. If the bars are bigger up front then more understeer. If the bars are bigger in the rear, then oversteer.

Regardless of the above, bigger bars will speed up weight transfer, especially in the front. So this should either result in quicker turn in, or the outside front tire getting murdered (especially if the inside front lifts too much). So, watch your outside front wear closely.
When i went with big bars on my Vette, the outside front tire was toast in just one day with no increase in pace.
But that was with stock suspension otherwise and obviously the bar rates were way too high.

Good luck and do report your feedback! Cheers!

Watch pre-load, too, on the aftermarket bars and / or with changes in ride height. The endlinks can bind up if the swaybar holes are not in the exact same place as your stock ones after install.

THANKS!

Currently the car is pretty hard on outside tires. I would have thought that the outside tire wouldn't get as beat up as bar is keeping the car flatter.
I can smoke a new set op tires in one day, no problem!

So I've read or heard that end links should not have preload somewhere.
All I did was unbolt the stock bar and installed the new bar. I did not have to pry or twist to get end link in the middle hole. Hopefully I did correctly.

appreciate your help and any feedback!

Next outing is coming up and with cooler weather and new bars I am hunting for low 8s! If so that awesome!

Like i said i am no crew chief, but bigger bars cause a faster weight transfer, which in turn can put more stress on a tire by loading it much faster. Either way youll know what's what soon enough. Hope it all works out for ya!
