Or you could use Yokomo swaybar clamps with a set screw to take out some of the slop.

They might work....?

Randy,

Just twist the stock mounts a litle and there will be no slope at all...! Still need to use the collars to take away side to side play though.

You can also play with the other end of the stabalizer hardware. Try adjusting ball cups lengths as well as distances through the stabilizer ball "hole" hehe

Razzo, are you sure those are 2degree sets? I think those were 4degree. The package said 6degree. But the stock TA04 had 2degree kickup. So the blocks are actually 4degree. I have a set of them as well 53458. The 6degree TA04 Pro block were to get 8degree on the Pro since the Pro had 2degree kickup.
Kilruf, I'm pretty sure that's the package it came out of. I went though my part box, and I definately have a set here with less caster then kit c-hubs. I'll take my caliper out later and double check. Parma's equivalent is Cyan/Magenta. I've been starting my Parmas down at 58mm to start, but with the larger diameter wheel, once you shave Jacos down to 58mm, you have so little foam left! Nothing like buying a new set of foams, and shaving down 3/4 of it off from get go! And these double pink wear out super fast, even with stock! so it's catch 22 (at least with Jaco) start them out small to lessen chances of chunking, but then you lose 1/2 the usage since it's shaved down so much.

Rod, my 415 is on the way. Nice pics on the Tamiya USA site. I had a feeling you would in the thick of it.

Acer Racing should have sets of ceramics, i'm running them in my SD and they work great.

Updates on my 415-buying. It looks like i'm not going to get a 415 this season because it will be too much new things in the middle of a season, same 2 years ago and half of that year went totally bad..

I thought of that too, but because the bottom of the set screw is flat instead of arched, you will still have some play in the bar.

I ordered the teflasonic sealed bearings from Acer's site yesterday. Ceramics are great, but I'm just looking for something with a good seal. I forgot Speedtech had their ceramics, I'll order a set of those too to try out.

Thanks Razzo, I'll have to try those out as well. I don't really care if I went through a set of tires each race day. $30bucks a weekend is no biggy for me. I'm just trying to get ready for the Snowbirds. So the fastest combo for 19t is what I'm looking for. I'll have to match my lap times with Parma Cyan/Magenta combo vs Jaco DoublePink/DPink-Orange... and see what I get. I could probably do that on NewYears.

I always go around the outside edge of the tire with some CA glue to protect it from chunking, and I havent had a Jaco come unglued yet.
