Dude and you are looking for a yokomo Sam? What do you expect for support there? Call them up and they'll say "Oh, put pvc tires and drift"

Tell you what. You buy a rubber car that will have parts availability at RCE and I will run rubber with you with the same car. Just stop buying cars with no support at your local track. (HB,yokomo, any given foreign car that isn't a corally)

Default Anti Roll Bar Fitment Questions

Hi every one,
I have never run anti roll bars before and would like to try them. I have the andy moore wce and run 13.5 with lipo. I have fitted the front ARB asper instructions but with the front shocks off if I lift one front wishbone I have to lift it quite alot before the other side lifts. Can you guys tell me how you all set yours up and what adjustments can I make so both front wishbones lift at the same time. Any other tips would be helpfull

Thanks

If you using 1.2mm (soft), is normal when you lift one side all the way up, the other side will lift up around less half. If you use the 1.4 (medium), it should lift up a lot more than half. To adjust the sway bar, you need to play with the ball end connector, usually the set screw is straight down to tight it, try to move around or tighten the set screw from the bottom up, it should make difference. Check this out, Hara will show you how. http://www.google.com/translate?u=ht...F8&sl=ja&tl=en

I have a question about the shocks adjustment. I'm using wce shock tower and when I try to adjust the rear droop from 6 to 5, the spring is not touch the spring tension collar, is that a matter or I need to adjust the length of the shocks? I has 1.5mm roll center, shocks on the tower #2 hole.

The TC has new revised suspension arms with more tuning options, and the new rear diff is a MAJOR improvement over the previous version. The idea of the TC kit is to bring a revised car to market, at a lower cost than the previous. Things on the AME that were just "bling" were left out, and newer revised parts were put around the car to make it better on the track.

All in all I think it's a better performer. But you could have some of the very same benefits of the tc kit by changing to the new suspension arms and the new rear pro spec diff. There are a few other smaller changes around the car, but those two things seem to stand out the most to me.

from what i have understood from RAPID RACER is that when you lift you car at its centerline both wheels dont lift at the same time with equal droop left right so you have to have some difference in droop left right for both wheel to lift at the same time. if im right i have the same probleme so im also looking for a solution.

and from EJ20 i have the same probleme one touches the tension collar alot and the other one does not touche it at all.

Thanks in advance
