Default Sway Bars

Casey

i used to have a similar view to the sway bars as you when i ran my x-ray early on (good set-up didn,t need them,hard springs worked well)

but after adding them i found i could get around the corners even faster,set-up needs to be good tho add i would suggest using using 1 to 2 grades softer on the rear than the front

i also find on carpet using the shocks mounted as upright as possible good(car changes direction faster,more responsive) do you have any thoughts on this ?

Yes, that's two closed holes on the bottom of upright. If you looking to adjust 1 deg, I do not think you could do it. But as for 0.25deg or 0.5deg maximum should be ok to achived.

Other thing to try, dismantle all rear bulkhead and try to rebuilt with bulkhead screwed first then the suspension arm.

Hey Casey I ran the 414M2 tonight at RCO. IT was really good once I took the one ways out of my car. It then just kept getting better and better.

I use the bulkheads to mount my rear and front camber links. It has spacers under them now. What happens if I would use higher spacers/or lower ones. If I use no spacers will it give the car more or less traction at that end of the car?

Hi Guys,

We have the new World's front sway bar kit (with new arms) available online. Also, all the titanium turnbuckles are available now too.

Thanks

I don't know whether my set up is comparable to P2K setup but I use 40/122 (64p) on my P2k2 pro and it's still begging me to gear up!

Default Hi Roll Center Strength Question

I know that a number of you have done the hi-roll center setup for your 414's. Has anybody noticed wether or not the car maintains its durability from the modifications? I'm curious to know as I'm about to use my car at one of the nation's most notorious chassis breakers errr I mean race tracks, SoCal (where novices are intermediates, intermediates are sportsman, and sportsman are pro stock ). A couple of buddies of mine are freaking me out.
