if your buggy does not come with them then they make a huge difference but if you already have some on there it shouldnt make a big difference IMO. i cant tell any difference in different size swaybars.

The #1 focus should be tires. Ask fellow racers at your track which ones they recommend for your track. Sure, if other settings on your car are way off, some adjustments will make a major difference but the biggest one is to start with the right tires. No amount of adjustments make up for a poor tire choice. Change tires if necessary, make sure the servo is strong enough and the servo saver is set tight enough then start looking at differential fluid weights you are using, shock setup, etc. to gain a little more performance. Read some of the tuing guides and talk to the guys at your track. This stuff takes a lot of patience - just practice driving consistently and smooth in the meantime until it all falls into place - don't get frustrated with it. Good luck

I agree with bjr48, tires are a very important aspect of getting a car to turn. Last weekend my buggy was turning fine with brand new city blocks up front, but with worn out I-beams it pushed like a mofo.

As you can see, the front tires clearly have tread. So you should not be pushing.
