The 034Motorsport Dynamic+ Sway Bar Bundle Package is available for Gen 1 & Gen 1.5 Audi R8. The 034Motorsport Dynamic+ Sway Bar Bundle Package features perfectly-matched front and rear sway bars made from high-quality spring steel for maximum performance and durability, and Motorsport Front and Rear Billet Adjustable End Links to allow for instant transfer of suspension movement to the sway bars. Designed to reduce body roll, improve turn-in, reduce understeer, and enhance steering feel, 034Motorsport's Dynamic+ Sway Bar Bundle Package is the ideal upgrade for those in search of confidence-inspiring handling and maximum performance on the street and track.
The Dynamic+ Sway Bar Bundle Package was thoroughly evaluated on the street and track with the 034Motorsport Gen 1.5 Audi R8 V8 before release and underwent several revisions and combinations to find the ideal sizing for maximized performance.
These end links allow for the uncompromised transfer of suspension movement to the sway bar, and are adjustable in length, allowing the elimination of preload on the sway bar. 034Motorsport sway bar end links are the only options on the market with high misalignment sphericals, ensuring that the end links do not bind as the suspension articulates.
In addition, adjustable sway bar end links allow the adjustment if preload on the sway bar, as well as alleviate potential sway bar clearance issues caused by lowering the vehicle.
When a sway bar is preloaded, it is already twisted when the car is at rest, and it’s trying to roll the car to one side because of this. This will lead to asymmetric behavior and the car will favor tuning one way versus the other.
Preload is detectable when the car is at ride height on a flat surface, and removal of an end link is difficult because the sway bar is already twisted and applying force on the bolt, or installing the end link is difficult because the bar needs to be twisted to insert the bolt through the hole in the sway bar. With equal-length non-adjustable sway bar end links, removing preload is not possible.
By utilizing our 034Motorsport adjustable end links, the lengths of each end link can be adjusted so that the end link can be easily installed at ride height without needing to twist the bar to get it to fit. Zero preload provides symmetrical handling in right and left turns.

034Motorsport R8 track use alignment specs; these specifications are optimal for a track-driven car with a lively rear end that drives towards oversteer. Caution should be used with these alignment specs as they can cause the car to over-rotate and spin, especially during throttle-lift conditions while turning:
Our test vehicle is also running 034Motorsport front and rear sway bars, camber shims, and all 034Motorsport spherical Motorsport line of products.
Javad’s Driving Impressions: The Audi R8 is a formidable sports car stock, Audi’s supercar offering features classic sports car design and engineering including double wishbone suspension front and rear, mid-engine neutral balance, rear-tire biased drive while maintaining Quattro grip, and a light-weight chassis, so improving on this is no small feat for any tuning company as the car is already so good stock. We spent a lot of time testing and optimizing the handling parts as part of this line including the springs, alignment products, and swaybars which ultimately transformed the car through fine-tuning and improvements in the slim performance margin Audi left open for us. Stock the R8 pushes at the limit, quite badly, not much better than an S4 would.
The suspension is really too soft stock so body and suspension control isn’t optimal, and alignment settings favor tire life than true performance and ultimate grip. The sway bars are too small and designed to allow the car to push, which is what’s safest for a streetcar, but doesn’t allow the car to turn neutrally giving the car sharp and precise turning through the corner. Stock enter a corner fast, at or near the limit of traction, turn the steering wheel and the car still wants to go straight albeit doing its best to turn, that’s push. With 034Motorsport Dynamic+ suspension components in place, enter the same turn and the front tires will bite and grab the line you choose as the rear end follows the steering input you give to keep the car on line and turning precisely with steering input. The R8 finally handles like a true sports car and not a car compromised by the factory for the lowest common denominator, and is still completely livable for daily driving with the huge added bonus of looking better, lower, meaner and faster.
