The tamiya TB-03 bumper is as good as the X-ray for a fraction of the price and is a direct fit on the Sakura, I haven't broken a thing since fitting. If money is tight, then that could be an alternative for you.

Are you referring to part# TAM84049? I might give it a try.

jump over to this thread - U.S. Vintage Trans-Am Racing Part 2

not sure who in there is running one.

I have run one in VTA (australia) different motor (we run 21.5 blinky) but everything else the same.
Box set up, 1deg camber front, 2 rear, kit springs, 400 shock oil all round, spool in the front, gear diff rear. Worked well on our med grip outdoor asphalt track.
Biggest problem i found was it is hard on the HPI front tyres as car had a bit of push that couldnt be dialled out
hope that helps

Here's the sway bar report from Saturdays test race. Track was a little slippery and lap times averaged 0.2 seconds slower for everyone. That being said my son said that his car felt more stable, more predictable, and less twitchy with the sway bars added. I noticed that tire wear was reduced. Over all he likes the way the car reacts better with the bars vs without the bars.

I put the sway bars on mine and picked up about half a second on lap time. the car stayed flatter in the corners and carried more speed through the corner. Havn"t played with roll center yet, thats next on the to do list.

A lot of variables such as track conditions, driving style, and the rest of the cars set up but I have had the most success with the #5 in the front and the #2 in the rear. I have run every possible combination though. In MOST but not all situations you do not want the rear bar stiffer than the front.

Cool. Glad you like the thicker fluid. When you feel like it try the solid axle up front. The car really pulls hard and its less spun weight so the car may pick up more acceleration. I noticed more acceleration in my car when I changed over.

Hey guys I have read all 124 pages of goodness and have a question which may have been answered but i may have forgotten. I plan on running 17.5 blinky and was wondering what gearing(64p or 48p) to run with the 19t center pulley.

When I ran 17.5 BL in the blinky class I used 64P gears with an FDR of 4.10
