Big front sway bars are popular in the Subaru world for auto-xing, too. The Subies are MacPherson strut, and like the Mustang, the stock front suspension geometry isn't the greatest. The thinking seems to be that for auto-x use, it's better to use a big front sway bar because it drastically reduces front roll, which in turn minimizes the impact of the poor camber curve and insufficient caster.
Since you also do track events with your car, Han Solo, I'm interested to see how you feel about the handling balance on track, where you'll obviously see higher speed, longer sweepers with smaller steering angles.
