APR Motorsport’s first product release from the 2008 Race Season is the new Roll Control Front and Rear Anti-sway Bars. After much testing of APR Motorsport’s MKV GTI Koni Challenge Race Cars, the suspension was finally dialed in with the addition of the Roll Control Anti-sway Bars. Three adjustment settings allowed APR Motorsport to specifically cater the reduced body roll and increased slip angle provided the by the Roll Control Anti-sway Bars to each racing environment. Weight Reduction over the original equipment bars and increased stiffness of the chassis allowed for faster lap times through quicker corner exit speeds and reduced understeer.

To understand why this fuel is needed for the midrange, one must first understand how the fuel delivery system works in the 2.0T.
