Thanks for the starting point!

Can somebody walk me through the final setup of the sway bars?

I just added a set to my S1. I followed the R1 manual and have everything installed correctly.

I need to know do I tighten down the two set screws at the back of the sway bar? I thought the sway bar needed to "rotate"?

Also, what is the function of the rod stopper. I know it sits in that groove and does not allow side to side movement. What else does it do?

The two set screws in the back are only to stop the front/back movement of the sway bar. It still needs to rotate, so don't tighten them too much.

The rod stopper is there to stop the side/side movement of the sway bar.

seems to have a good selection of parts. Plus parts from other names that will fit the car.

the small screws are there to limite the slop... you have to set them to prevent the BAR to move in its hole but not to rotate...

Thanks. But... the two M3x10mm screws clamp them into that slot pretty well. So I'm wondering what the sets screws really do?

There is a front and rear arm block listed there. Just one of each and two sets of split blocks needed?

If you dont use set screws the swaybars will have too much movement

You probably need the inserts, too. And pivot balls if the s1 doesn't have them.

Go the hex's, aluminum mounts for the front with inserts and some other little bits. $150 all in for a brand new touring car with a few upgrades and spares. Not bad! Hope it performs well. Dont expect it to match my serpent but if its close ill run in in stock and save my serpent for modified.

For the price i got it, im most intersted in showcasing it to newbs who come check out the racing, only to find out how much it costs lol... hard to get new faces when you tell them it costs $1000 to get into.
cars like this are a great gateway, and if i can maintain my top3 in touring car with it, will show all the more what they can get into.

now if only i could find inexpensive roar approved drive trains.. right now its looking like speedpassion. but sucks to HAVE to send people to rcmart if they wanna get in on the cheap. roar is kicking our ass lol.

Didn't know ROAR had to approve "drive trains"? Is there a set of rules on this somewheres?
