Sway bar question on an FC

I have recently heard that an FC suspension works better with just a front sway bar. There have been several posts I've read where this is stated as a fact. I know the FC is an understeering chassis and one of the usual fixes for understeer is a rear or bigger rear bar. Anyone got a relatively informed opinion on this? I'm still thinking of bigger bars fore and aft for my car. I already have stance coil overs and rear steer eliminators and I'm pretty happy with both. If nothing else I think I can just disconnect the rear bar for an autocross run or two to see. It still seems wrong to have no rear bar for an FC.

I would imagine that it really depends on the rest of the setup that you are running, esp. the spring rates and the camber. I run the RB front sway bar and no rear bar with 400/275 ft.lbs springs on my track FC and don't seem to have any problems with it pushing on the track. In fact I can get it a little tail happy on occasion (like this last weekend at VIR )

I wouldn't buy a new rear bar until you've had a chance to play around a bit.
