you convert the 1.8 and 2.0 to "standard" and use piano wire. We have it available at most every hardware store.

1.8 would be .059

2.0 would be .078

I got mine off eBay.
Careful with the 2mm roll bar, as I don't think you can use the standard ball ends, the wire won't fit inside the ball.

Fyi the losi scte sway bars require 2 simple bends and a trim and they fit perfectly. I got some from a guy at the track who said that he never uses the skinny ones and gave them to me 1.8mm and 2mm

Do you have a part number? Front or rear?

Aluminum shock caps and exotek steering rack. Avid carbon arm inserts are a maybe. I also added the avid servo mount and exotek spur gear. I use ae shock springs.

I am assuming they are running on carpet or Astroturf.

What's the consensus on using Titanium screws for the hinge pin pills? Or is there a better brand of screws to use?

Has anyone noticed a big difference running the avid aluminum chassis compared to the Schelle extended chassis besides the length difference?

I'm running close to David Ronnefalk's world's set up. I've got the HB + 6mm chassis (he was using a redworkshop version), 60wt front shock oil, no 3 steering plates, 10k front diff oil and 5k rear diff oil.
If I was gonna change anything, I would come down to 30k centre diff, as I'm pulling wheelies at the moment with 50k.
