The risks are somewhat difficult to define but you could possibly expect any of the following:

1. Poor/unknown/unpredictable handling due to unexpected/unpredictable flex in the body/suspension
2. Excessive/abnormal wear of suspension components
3. Excessive/abnormal tire wear
4. ... etc. You get the idea.

Strut bar and mid-brace might help ... or might make things worse. Unknown and impossible to predict with any certainty because "it all depends ..."

Of course, if you drive like my mom and never go over 45mph on a straight and never exceed 20mph in any corner, you'll probably be ok with almost anything.

But if you drive it like a Porsche, then all bets are off.
