Can someone lead me in the right direction on how to adjust the Stabilizer Bars. I am in the build process and have installed both. On the front, both sides rise evenly with very little delay. But, on the rear one side takes longer to rise than the other. I can't figure out why, I have tried both adjustment grub screws and I am not seeing any improvement. Is there a tutorial available that I can watch?

Are the rear shocks detached when you tested the sway bar? The shocks got to be equal length, tension, down & up travel. Also there is the droop setting/adjustment as well. Make sure the left and right side have same amount of droop.

This is with no shocks. Droop is the same both sides.

Take the sway bar off and set it on a flat board, make sure it sits flat and is not bent.

Also have a look at posts #413, 416 and 417 ( hadn't spotted that) in this thread, back on page 28.
Might help to explain the technique a bit better.

I talked to Jilles for a while tonight (thanks again for the tires and the help all week). He put a gear diff in the front of his car with 500k and attributed the additional steering to his being able to TQ mod in the last round. He said he's running 1k in the rear gear diff.

As for me, my car has traction rolled off the track every run since the end of the first day. I've tried every suggestion imaginable. I'm basically giving up and putting the long arms on the car in hopes of finishing a race.
