Can anyone give me a ball park droop setting for a 75x45 tight 6 turn carpet track? I was running 3 in FT and 4 in the back.

Cool swaybar set.......

I can't find a sway bar set for my TRF415 anywere. I did find a set for the TRF501X. Does anyone know if these are the same size (or even close) to the 415s? As long as the mounting is spaced close to the same, I'll make them work.

I was probably mistaken about the 2.25mm thing....

But that site says both the MSXX and MSXX-MRE have 2mm lower decks. If that was the case, wouldn't both have the same part number? Aside from the two missing holes I was complaining about, they are cut identically.

I'm pretty sure the bottom deck is thicker on the MRE. I'll measure mine when I get home...

BTW: The lower deck in the MSXX stick-type chassis set is 2.5mm thick and available separately. This plate has all kinds of extra holes drilled in it.

Okay, I just got home and checked. MSXX-MRE 2007 lower deck is same thickness as the original MRE (2.5mm). Side by side they are an exact match. The upper deck is definitely 2.0mm, and when placed next to lower deck, it's obvious the lower deck is considerably thicker.

I have a friend with an MSXX, but I won't be seeing him till next month. I would love to get an exact measurement of that one as well...

unsure why there is a different part number for the lower deck for the MSXX and MSXX MRE

im fairly sure the ta05 sway bars fit the 415 too, so that might be an option...

The MSXX deck is thinner than the MRE. I would like to confirm if it's 2mm or 2.25mm...

And yes, the TA05 sway-bar kit fits the MSX and later and includes all hardware and 6 different bars. You can buy them in rainbow colors 53842, black 49383, or milky blue 49414...

That would be great. But there's no indoor racing around here. Maybe some day.
