The small swaybar goes in the front and the big in the back.

Big one in the back, small one in the front.

I am running the stock shoes and LST 1.1 clutch springs. STUPID bottom end. Make sure the shoes rotate on the pins freely...you may have to drill or ream them out very slightly.

Aaron, have you or Adam tried other sway bars and tested them against each other? I picked up the optional ones, so I have all three and i'm wondering about a good combination to try for dry slightly sandy, tight, Florida tracks.....8), Jim

Jim I have tried all three and have ended back up with the stock ones. I have asked this on the Grid before about the sway bars and I believe a lot of guys were running 2.6 in the back and around 2.0-2.3 in the front. I felt like I lost traction around corners (which may be good in tight corners, but I like to go off power a lot in the corner) in the rear with the bigger ones .

Aaron, do you mean the stock shoes from the x1cr pro kit (alum.) or the black shoes? Also, am I getting it right when you say LST? Like the team losi lst? I'm just asking because you said you have stupid bottom end using that set up and I'd like to try it. Just want to make sure I get it right, Thanks.

Jeff, buggyman, ya I suspected that would be the case, but more input never hurts!

Usually, thicker means less roll, more consitency, but less traction............I was thinking about going to a thicker bar up front and leaving the back one, or even going thinner(if there is one?)......hmmmmm, I guess nothing is as good as trying it myself...but i'm usually not too good at begging for practice time at the races, LOL..........Jim

Jim - I haven't tried any other bars. I'm sure Adam has tried more than a few, and the ones we're running are what he feels most comfortable with. I'm running the swaybar in the rear very loose, so it helps to weaken the effect a bit.

ultranewb - The stock aluminum clutch shoes, and yes, clutch springs from the Losi LST.

When I say stupid bottom end, I seriously mean nearly undriveable..haha. My car is nutty fast!

Hello everyone , I am from Australia and we have our National Titles next week. It is on a grass track (our local track is clay) and I am wondering if anyone has any setup tips for grass. Also I have measured the tank and it appears we need almost 2 feet of fuel line to get to 125ml. Where do you put all that fuel line?

I have to say that this is the best 8th Buggy I have ever driven.

Regards Brad.
