I have the NIP Team Associated #91535 Anti-Roll Bar kit for the B5M (it works on the SC%M too). You can have it for $12 shipped. I do not need it for my track and it is still sealed.

That is what I have adapted for use on the front of my Sc5M. I drilled a hole in the arm 26mm from the inner pivot and used the JC pivot blocks with longer screws to mount into the front chassis brace. Ill post a picture when I get home if you are interested.

As posted below, Wallie builds have also been marketing one.

I had a look for the JC sway bar kit but I couldn't find it anywhere. Is it still in production?
