Ran it today: Awesome! The car looked dangerous! Not to mention I geared it up beforehand.

What would the low role center rear bracket do for performance?

Hey Brett what's up! If I'm not mistaken, if you lower your rear roll center it will increase the distance between roll center and center of gravity and the car will roll more in the corners. I think the effect of that is to utilize more of the available traction/grip for a given surface. It should help go harder on throttle without having the rear wash out of the corners but the downside of that could be less corner speed. I think that it is then possible to compensate with a harder shock setup.

Yes-an upgrade for the GT. They work great. I have them on mine. I'm not sure about them for the Buggy/Truggy

Is anyone using ceramic bearings in their Cobra GT? If so what brand and is worth the extra bucks to buy them?

I'm trying to increase the free roll of my gt; I'm open to any ideas to help reach this objective. - thanks in advance.
