WCM Lotus 7 front sway bar


Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 WCM 7, and in autocross will pick up the inside rear wheel when cornering tight. That of course leads to wheel spin. A friend of mine with a Westfield, says a front sway bar would help hold the rear flat and down. I would appreciate any advice from anyone who has achieved that install. Thanks, Mel

The trick is to make the front stiffer than the back, Either by stiffening the front sway bar or by loosening the rear, if you have one. I have completely disconnected the rear sway bar on my 1987 1700 Supersprint and have no problem with rear wheel spin.

 

An LSD would also help.

At this years NJMP event I will be looking at anti roll bars to get some ideas for my Locost. I don't have either from for rear ARB's and want to at least add a front ARB. The rear will be easy but the front will be a little more challenging. It funny last year I was looking at Roll Bar ideas, This year it's Anti Roll Bar ideas, there is a theme here somewhere.

Mel, where are you located? I am in Scottsdale AZ and have WCM that's not running and the prior owner removed the front sway bar if you wanted to check it out.

I am in Mt now, but will be in Mesa in January.....if you still have the bar I would love to look at it....my phone is 406 223-1515....lets be in touch

WCM is no longer in business. They use to fix lotus 7 variants for track use in Texas and then decided to make their own. What they built were based on S2000 engine/transmission with WRX rear end and Coil overs . 1240lbs with 240hp. Prices started at 38k

 

I made an effort and googled it to no avail. What is WCM?

The company is owed by a member here. WestTexasS2K He may be able to advise you on the status.
