On ozite, under what circumstances would you change the hardness of the sway bars? Do most people leave the stock ones in?

I have a question I just recently bought the R1 lightweight spring steel axles and I noticed the pin is just sitting in there with no way of locking it down I'm assuming I have to buy R1's CVD kit ill post pictures unless there's another alternative.

See the kit has the small grub screws to lock the pin attached to the cvd bone. Is there any Tamiya parts that might fit if so can I get some part numbers. Thanks.

I had them drawn up and cut out, -8.5mm and -7.5mm, front and rear respectively.

The T-Shox are awesome, although the difference from the normal TRF shock is rather negligible. Perhaps I haven't got the springs right (short springs are required now).

The car actually felt quite horrible at first, sliding around, no traction.

There's less roll with the lowered shocks, you see. I play around and made plenty of roll center adjustment to make the car roll more. More ackermann is also needed for more steering.
