-DDM Handling Kit (stiffer front springs, rear mounting plate, 3/4" drop)
-DDM sway bar mounting brackets
-Twist Dynamics sway bar

All riding on sticky Bridgestone Potenza RE71Rs. My indy just finished up and since it's supposed to be 67-68 here tomorrow, gearing up for a LOOOOONG ride. Will report back on my impressions.

I installed the same kit. Haven’t been on a ride yet but we have a good ride planned for Sunday. Let us know how the potenzas do. I’m looking to upgrade tires as well!

Last year I upgraded the sway bar to one from Slingshot Only. With only this, handling was significantly improved. Installing the whole DDM Kit would have been the way to go.

OK, just put a few miles on the newly upgraded "DATSling" with recently installed suspension upgrades. First impressions are:
-The whole setup seems more "compliant," running over bumps and potholes easily, and with slightly improved comfort (go figure);
-The Twist Dynamics sway bar looks stiff as all get out but keeps both fronts fully planted;
-The 3/4" lowering not only looks good, but provides a lower of center of gravity.
-Steering turn-in seems crisper and more predictable.
-Corners like a beast!

I highly recommend the Potenzas for spirited driving and track use, but NOT as a DD. I almost put mine in a ditch the first (and only) time I've ridden in the rain.
