That's odd there's nobody who makes a sway bar kit for the buggy . He's a pro driver so he can make anything work lol . I guess tuning the suspension better can help not to need a sway bar than . Il be running it on high grip clay and carpet .

cound the whole mid motor thing be part of the reason they haven't found a need for a sway bar?

I know when doing carpet with my AE B4 based gear, the swaybar made a nice improvement in handling but haven't ran a MM car on carpet so don't know.

I never really thought about getting a sway bar kit, with mid-motor i would guess it would eliminate the need for it though.
Plus Jorn is one of the best in Europe, comparing him to people like club racers isn't really fair....

I've tried Jorn'n setups and have no idea how he gets his buggy to turn (I couldn't get mine to turn) . So I use a rear xray touring car sway bar and use robotronics avid sway bar collars to take away the side to side play and now I have a lot better steering.

Tc5 man , you might have a look at the rear sway bar for the hobby pro prs1. It looks like it might be very close to what the durango needs . I have one coming, it should be here in a few days . I'll let you know if it fits.

TD320128 is an "anti roll bar mount" in the manual, but they dont make an anti roll bar? Half ass execution there Dingo. Good thing they didnt half ass most of the rest of the car. Any one bend the chassis at the wire pass through?

At least they have a mount, that's usually the hard part. There are probably 10 different car's sway bars that will work.
Or even bend it yourself piano wire to do it on the cheap.

Edit, those are just the straps on the back of the diff case.

I think you will need the shorter shocks from the V2 to go with those arms.

Actually you just need to remove the rubber grommet stopper that normally sits above the shock end. Its about 1.5mm-2mm That should give you the clearance you need.
