2. I don't really know, but I think I remember hearing that with the aluminum pivot blocks, you don't need the brace, but i would keep it in until someone else can tell me wrong or right.
I ended up using the kit bracket as it fit just fine, everything lined up and not using it left too much space between the arms so it definitely needed something. For the time being it looks like it fine but if anyone can confirm that would be great! Thanks.

You can use the 30 deg pivot brace with the 25 kick up pivot with no problems. You just can't use the 25/20 brace with the 30 deg block as it will interfer.

So during the trophy race yesturday mt truck was flying. TQ'd second in the first heat but truck got worse and worse as the night went on...12 hour day. I think I should have pulled off the sway bars as the track became dry and dusty. Any thoughts ?

I think you should consume more beer and stop being such a little girl on the track

I just fitted the front swaybar kit on my 22SCT without any problems but the rear sway bar does interfere with the installed rear weight (plastic part of the sway bar can not be bolted down because it is not seated/optional weight is too high). I run the 22 in mid motor configuration. Has anybody an idea what I am doing wrong or do these 2 parts just don't go together?

Thanks!

I normally race on HIGH bite clay, but yesterday's race the track surface became somewhat dry...I also pulled off the rear sway bar, which definitely helped increase rear traction (left front sway bar on-white swaybar). Definitely noticed that it locked in the rear end, a little too much as the truck developed a medium push towards the middle of the main.

I ran 25/78 on last sunday with 40* timing on a viper vst 17.5 blinky. I am going to try 26/78 and 30*, maybe 35*

probably best number up so you can check what piston is in it, should you forget what is in the truck.

Ok that's what I figured but didn't know I'd somehow the pistons were cut a certain way so they would flow inside the schock smoothly. Thanks

Just confirmed what I was running with a Viper 17.5!!! I'm running 26/78 with 30*... It has been doing real well for me. Now if I could just figure out my TLR22 Buggy w/ a Viper 17.5 in it.
