For those of you wondering the bd7 swaybars are the ones that will fit the yz-2 and b-max2 Mr . Part # sd-412rs , they can only be used with shocks mounted to rear of arm unless you cut and shorten them a little bit so they don't interfere with the shock when mounted to front of arm. I'll post some pics tonight .

For what it's worth, I ordered a sway bar kit for the B-Max2 and it went right on (PNYOKBM-412)

I still think by having the link ends so far on the bar it changes the leverage on the bar so I didn't want to do it that way.

That is why I set the link location so that they are square to the sway bar at ride height, this way there is room to move both directions when you go to both ends of the travel.

If you move the link farther in on the bar from there, you can pre-load the bar some (we would do this on a nitro car to just free up the back of the car slightly), but if everything is square at ride height, then you are using just the pressure of the diameter of the bar.

These bars are just a little too long for this car, but do the job. All that extra bar hanging out makes it look like its pre-loaded. I could take the time to trim 4-5mm off each end, but it wasn't touching anything so I left it.

The pic was taken with the car on a stand, with the arms drooped all the way out.

Hi!

I also had to have the car as soon as i saw it

Today i made some weights for the car to be able to get it tuned in on any surface.

On the first picture all the chassis weights that are shown weight all together 76g. These weights are made from special material which weights around double compared to steel.

Of course i made few extras of all the weights

I fitted sway bar from B5M.

Dry weight on my scale was 714g; 1039g with my electronics. With Body, electronics and a square pack and no tires (too many variables for tire/inserts/wheel combos) it was 1361g. I dropped in a 4600 shorty and my weight was 1312g.

It was a simple question. What's your RTR weight.
