We have found that the adjustable blade sway bar not to work well on the T1R. EVO2 is a must. Have not tried a wire bar on the T1R yet..... (talking carpet and foams here)..

Rob,


I was wondering about that myself. I keep feeling like I want a stiffer spring and no sway bar, but couldnt figure out why. With the sway bar, car feels a tad edgy in the middle of the corner, but feels like it could use a touch more going in.

What do you think? I am going testing soon and can put AE Purple, AE yellow or Xray reds on.

EXACTLY brutha. T1R likes a heavier spring than the EVO2, but doesn't like the blade bar...

I am running 33lb X-Ray spring in front and a 30lb X-Ray spring in the rear with 1 degree of rear toe. Car is MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!! I will post set up in a few...

Hey Ray,

You know what? I've had success with the blades. Of course the wires will be easier but the blade will act both ways if done correctly. As for the blade, what I did was grind it down a 1.5mm and it works great! what happens I think is the blade being too wide and is AWESOME with PB but with C-hubs, they need to slim down hence the wire bars. You might want to consider this.

Steevo,

Make sure the two center shaft bearings are properly seated in the bearing holder or else your rear belt will be too tight. Other than that, it's a no brainer and an easy car to built and the setup should work fine.

One more thing to add. Spring steel axles front and rear.

As Jimmy said... They are a must especially in the front....

Pricey must, but I agree also

The instructions are great. Much better than the 705's that I just started building...good thing I have the xray as the 705 ASSUMES that you have built many kits so it doesn't have any wording what-so-ever. Good luck and welcome.
