This is the setup I ran for the main at the Halloween Classic.
I needed to get the car to rotate the corner better to keep up corner speed. This is the best it was all weekend.

Anti roll bars....pro or con?
Never really used them on any of my cars but now with the Mi3 I noticed that about 50%+ of the racers use them. What is the general though when running rubber on carpet. Use them or not, if so both front and rear?

I prefer not to use sway bars on carpet; rubber tire or foam. IMHO it is just one more potential area to break or get out of whack and cause issues. I like to find other means of correcting my set up.

Not to say Andrew doesn't have a valid point, but I've always run roll bars for any setup in any condition. I feel the car is more consistent with them and most of the time when I've taken them off the car doesn't straighten up out of the corner like I want it to. Without them it gives me the feeling like my oil is way too heavy so the car feels like it keeps turning out of the corner when I want it to straighten out (this could be in part because I really like my car to straighten out on power, I want to do the steering on power with the wheel, not the tendency of the suspension). This could be compensated for with other setup changes, but I like having the sway bar as another adjustment to work with. They are one more thing to fuss with, but once you know how to get them right then I find them beneficial to my setup technique.

lol. For some reason us being on two sides of the coin here reminded me of spy vs. spy.
