Good thing, changing too many thing at once is always bad because you don't know on which change the improvement or worsening is based on.
Changing setup is always making changes step by step.

I details each step (drilling holes at 26mm from the mounting points of the arms, use 3x20mm FHS screws for the bar mounts.
I hope this will help some people :-)
Google Translate is our friend! :-)

French to English (from text on web site)

===

Team associated provided a kit of anti-roll bars for SC5M ... Only for the back! Unfortunately, during the design of this new platform, Asso saw no need to propose an anti-roll bar to the front ...

Never mind, we will see how to recycle expected JConcept kit for SC10 and SC10.2!

parts needed

The kit JConcept # 2166
Two 3x20mm Flat head screws (FHS) to replace the screws provided in the kit JConcept who are not US

You'll need a drill with a 2 mm drill, a screwdriver 2mm allen and calipers.
Fix the support bar

The first step is to install the rod cradle on the chassis. For this, unscrew the two 3x10mm screws holding the front part and the central part of the chassis. Install the brackets with the two 3x20mm screws that you will be provided in advance.

=====

Install fasteners on the front triangles

Use your calipers to mark the drilling points for installing fasteners of the anti-roll bar. Open it to 26mm, set a benchmark in the center of the fixing axis of the triangle, the other marker is in the center of the drill hole (see photo). Locate it with a pencil.

=====

Now, enter your drill with its 2mm drill. Place your screwdriver perpendicular to the triangle so that the hole is well in line and drill a depth necessary to place the fastener ball joints.

=====

Then screw the balls in the holes.

=====

Place the anti-roll bar

Last step and not least, install the anti-roll bar on the frame! Use the bar "U" and check that once installed, it does not hinder the movement of direction.

I run a 10.5 on high bite clay track, plenty of power and top end speed.

Ray
I run on carpet; I took the rear sway bar for the b5m that I wasnt using, and modded it for the front of the sc5m. It was fairly easy, considering I am far from a machinist Also using the sc10 front gullwing arms to achieve a lower ride height too (I used to have to have the collars all the way up with the flat arms)

I have yet to run it, but I am excited to try this weekend.

just the ones that were intended for the b5m rear antiroll bar; I kind of just eyeballed it once it was mounted to the arms.

I find the sway bars help SCT on a rough track as there is less body roll and therefore you maintain better suspension travel during bumpy corners.

The grey front springs and 37.5wt oil make a very big difference to driveability.



The front sway bar is more important than the rear - running a rear sway bar only will reduce rear traction on a dusty surface. Running the diff too loose makes an SCT feel terrible in my experience.

Hi Ray.

Im still waiting for a sway bar set to arrive and have a Championship race tomorrow.

In the absence of a swaybar Im wondering if raising the front roll centre slightly would have a similar effect as the sway bar?

I will be going with 37.5 oil and gray springs as per your suggestion.


Heres some track pics

As you can see from the pics its a big fairly fast outdoor track. The clay is very hard and dusty with very little traction.





EDIT .........Nevermind. The meet was cancelled due to rain and the swaybar set has finally arrived .

I used a b5m rear set the same as the photos above, mounted in the same place with balls 26mm from pivot point.

I can recommend it for durability. It has the toughest front end of any of my associated trucks.

Quick question Ray

The front springs you are using, are they the #91637 or #91329

I brought the FT med spring assortment but it has #91329 which seems softer and is shorter than the white spring that came with the kit

I'm having an issue with nose diving hard on jumps. I have a lot of weight in the rear. Both Brass mounts and rear battery position. Have gray front and green rear springs. Shock oil? This was in 17.5 race today, not as bad with a mod 8.5 because I can drive it better and juice it at take off. Thoughts are appreciated, thanks
