What is the purpose of the set screws that go into the shock tower mount? Should I tighten just enough so the sway bar doesn't bounce around?

Basically you want your suspension free and both of these things are noticable if you take your tires and shocks off and try and raise and let the arms fall on there own.

The sway bars have nothing to do with on or off power as you described however it does effect steering on both and traction. If you run to thick of a sway bar you will not have the same low speed steering as the car won't be able to roll and you will loose traction as well for the same reason. Set your sway bars up for traction levels in the corners, if your traction rolling then thats an easy adjustment to just go up in sway bar size and still have the same shock package, you need the car to carve corners without traction rolling, "tires stay in contact on all four corners but the actual car leans". To soft and you will have tons of steering and traction roll and to hard and the card will slide and not hook up. I go to two tracks one is lower bite and I only run the rear copper bar no front sway bar with the same shock oil and on the other I put both black sway bars on and the two cars cannot be drove fast on the other track.

Servo tape most likely. I use the stuff with the red wrapping on it. Mine is stuck on and I crash a lot.

use the scotch black tape.
http://www.amazon.com/Scotch-414-DC-...ded+tape+black

or the scotch 5lbs clear.
http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3...294268138&rt=d


both can be purchased at walmart. I use the clear for esc/receiver and black for fans. black is a bit strong for esc/receiver. I use a heat gun to warm the tape before applying and use some pressure for a minute to help it bond

HB carbon fiber has magical properties... that is why it is 2x - 5x as expensive as any other carbon fiber!
