I am finishing the setup on my Pro4 and I am having a problem getting the ride hight the same on the left and right sides in the front. The rear seems to be OK.

I have not balanced the car yet. Could this be an issue?

Thanks is advance.
I had the same problem. One reason could be that the shocks were not correctly built. I rebuilt mine, and it seemed to help. I had trouble with my shock collars. One collar would be significantly lower than the other (mostly front end). I believe it's okay for there to be a difference in collar height, but not too much.

Sometimes the battery side will differ due to being heavier than the electronice side.

Jeff, I wish I could take credit for the car being so nice but actually the car did all the work. It was so easy to drive that it felt slow till I looked at the lap times.

I did send Speedtech an email about a steel spool for the Pro4. Thanks for the suggestion.

BTW, tape is lighter than any battery brace. Just need to find some that is purple.

Rev... oooh man.... I have both...

Hard decision... but my MTX-3 might be a dust collector this summer, as I bought two Pro4's!

The rear pivot block is 3 degrees and you can get optional 2.5, 2.0, 1.5, and 1.0 blocks. I think the sways are 1.2 and you can get 1.4 and 1.6. I'm 100% on the blocks but not on the sways. My kit is not here til Thursday but found most of the stuff out you are looking for. You can check the SpeedTech website as they have the sway bar kits for sale and you can at least see what is available.
