I'm using a TLR horn, but the HPI horn is good too.

The swaybar ends come out of the holders every time I drive. Anybody have an easy fix? I was thinking of dremeling a notch in the end of the swaybar, but they're pretty small diameter

I read on here where a guy flattened the ends like your talking about to allow the set screw to face up better on sway bar and he also used a little ca glue dropped in the hole then set the screw.

I don't run a front swaybar but the rear swaybar has been fine the whole year.

When installing the swaybars, I put the 3x3 set screws in the shock tower and the 3x4 screws in the swaybar ends so they don't strip so easily. Never lost a swaybar end in a year and a half. If the ends are already stripped, replace them or you could try a bit of ca glue too.

Thanks in advance!
The c should be wider. I have both but have not look in a long time. Best of my memory.

Shock mounting holes are lower in the C tower.

Running basically kit, with a few tweaks from Ty's Reedy Race setup for indoor high bite clay on slicks. Problem that I am having is when it lands off of a jump the rear end gets squirrelly no matter how perfect I downside the jumps, it weirds out. How can I smooth that out a bit? Not really interested in buying new parts to make this happen, I'd like to keep the car as stock HB as possible.

Try the "C" rear tower... you will have to buy a part...

On these pictures of Ty's 4wd is the fan located behind the motor bell blowing air into the bell or pulling air away from the motor which goes with air flow of the car? I can't really see the pitch of the fan blades.

I always thought you push the air into the component you want to cool. I haven't found a little fan that can pull hot air away fast enough to be effective.
