Greg,

I think it is all good. The 60d's and Lipos will be lots better on that big open track.

Are you old enough to even have a car? Some of the guys involved in this discussion are certainly old enough to be your father, if not your grandfather. I'm not saying who falls into which category.

I am old enough, I have M03R, Mi3 (as of last night), CF TA05, RC10T4 and I share an Emaxx with my dad

Then he has the same stuff

I didt like 'em when i was running on a low grip, bumpy and fast track

They seemed to give less steering, the front end lost a bit of grip and trcation rolling incresed

So i am one of those guys who swear at them

drop the suspension as low to the ground or carpet without scubbing and you will do good .if you have to much traction up front if on carpet ca glue just the out side rib of the tire

Default SWAYBARS

I have one car MO3L fitted with swaybars and a MO3M without. I think the car fitted without the swaybars handles slightly better than the car with them.

The biggest problem with the swaybars is they tweak easily. I have noticed the thicker swaybar is easily bent. This is both when fitted to the front and rear.

I will be trying my car without them.

My two bob's worth.

Calvin.

Pity you guys won't be running this week. I can't wait to do battle with you guys next weekend to see all your speed secrets, specially you Caltek1

You should come visit on Sunday so you can all see first hand what my speed secrets are when I apply it to Mad Mackern and co.
