Hope you didn't try to login because that link was a phishing link.

If you did try to login, I suggest you change all of your accounts that share the same password as FB.

Sorry about the bad link. I posted a new one and tested to confirm it works.

Thanks for the help astgerma52sp -- I picked up a ride height gauge to do some measuring and found myself at 3mm on the left side, 4mm on the right side and 3.5 in the back. My roller I bought doesn't have any of the shims to adjust it so I am still thinking of buying the 17 x1 today

Got myself a 2nd hand '16 spec and I'm currently rebuilding for outdoor asphalt, generally low grip.

may be a silly question but could anyone recommend 64p spur/pinion/diff balls for me to run?

I'm only really used to hopped up Tamiya diffs..

We only use Tamiya 540 silver cans (only rule)

I'm happy to stick with 96t spurs.. the car came with one but it's pretty beat up.

Thanks for any advise.

I run 39-88 with a maclan 25.5 on a 140x70 asphalt track. I'm also using a crc 16 ball spur with ceramic balls, very smooth.

Will the addition of the front sway bar be more of a benefit on carpet or asphalt ?

Maybe benefits carpet due to higher traction. All three qualifying top spots at our carpet race today were 2017 X1's.

Do those three driver usually take the top 3 spots or was this a improvement for them?

Well, we used the previous winner and TQ as benchmark (2016 X1). He was 4th in qualifying this time. Still need more testing but worth noting. I would say take it as a grain of salt just because its only one race so far. We had all just built up our 17's last week.

Our track was setup with a 180 turn at the end of the straight. Real test of the swaybars will be on a long sweeper after the straight for no traction roll.

Cool, keep us updated please. If this helps the roll in the sweeper I might be implementing them onto mine.

I was just wandering, what would make a swaybar more beneficial than progressive front springs....
