    Sounds like a good setup, have you been racing it? Does it handle good, does it do what and where you want it to go? I wouldn't do anything else to it unless it needs it, there are a ton of hop-ups and things you can tweak to make it better, but deepends on you and your driving style. Sway bars may or maynot help you, depends on the track and setup and driving style.
