Does removing the front swaybar help with 60ft or 1/4 times? I've heard it does and I'm going to the track tomorrow and thought maybe I'd take it off it its that much of a help. Car is 00 GT with stock front suspension, upper and lower control arms in the rear with MT E.T. streets for rubber.

I also haven't been running a rear sway bar either, and have got my 60fts into low 1.8's, does a rear sway bar hurt or help? I've never ran the car with one at the track.

I would think having the rear swaybar on would help since sadly enough it actually helps to reduce lateral movement of the axle with the crappy stock quadrabind setup even though that's not what a swaybar is for.
It may also help to plant the back tires more evenly on launch, kind of like an aftermarket anti-roll bar but not nearly as effective.
If you don't have a lot of hp you may not notice much difference whether it's on or off.

Leave the rear on. Ditch the front.

its not bad without a front bar, just know the limits. mine is on 15x3.5s now anyways so i cant ever get close to making the car get stupid from no front bar lol. mine just kind of leaned in corners on the 18s, but i wasnt out to run an autocross so i got used to it.
