If you aren't near the limit of adhesion when you are decelerating in race conditions you shouldn't be out there full stop.

Anti-roll bar stiffness is related to bar diameter^4 and 1/(blade length^2)

That is how a 20mm bar has the 'effective rate' of bars being 18-22mm - by changing the blade length.
