Hello, I am new to on road and recently bought a used D07 from a buddy.
Would like to get some advice on maintenance for this car. What should I be staying on top of. I know there is probably a thousand things that I can do but any advice would be appreciated.
Kenny

If you bought the kit used, I suggest rebuilding the shocks and diffs. As well as checking all the bearings.

Other then that.. Same with every car. Check that the screws are tight and replace broken parts.

As the belts wear, the teeth flatten. Don't run them to tight or too loose. If, you're running mod, adjust so there isn't a lot of give when you poke it. If, you're running stock, just loose enough too not skip under power. This should ensure a smooth / free drivetrain and months of driving without replacing them.

That's a closed meeting conversation for VBC owners. You are not privileged to hear such things. #choosebrandswisely

Cam someone post info on how to set up sway bars? I will be racing on a high traction carpet surface.

I have the red bars that come with the kit.

Should I run them or not.

How should I set them up?
