E Stock front swaybar options '87 RX-7

I am playing around with my '87 in E Stock this year and was looking for opinions on front sway bars and endlinks.
I was probably just going to get a Racing Beat bar. I was wondering if there was a good source for competition endlinks and bushings. Are there any other bars worth taking a look at? Does anyone make a hollow bar to save weight?

Any other tips for this car in ES?
I ran an old '86 GXL probably 7-8 years ago in the old C stock class before I got really competitive with the FD in ASP and SM2.
I am giving the FD a break and using this car for this year to scare the Miatas locally.
Can I squeeze 225/45/15s on the 15X6s? Or is it better to run 205/50/15s?

Thanks for any tips.

You might try this guy for endlinks.

And yes, you can get 225/45s on the 15x6 wheels. It's done all the time. The 225/50-15 V710 is another good choice.

Great thread. I too am messing with an 87 for ES competition. Tips from some experienced ES runners would be great.

regarding 225/45s on the 15x6 - check with the tire manufacturer - not all 225's are created equal.
