so long as you keep it right side up - who will know? Better then the butt ugly prissy metal flake that the Barracuda R3 boys are running.

Default Sway Bars

Do you guys use the pre-cut bumper foam with transponder space on your Xray Evo2? How do you install the front sway bar when using the precut bumper brace and bumper foam? On the stock bumper brace, there is a groove where you can hold in place the sway bar.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I use the blade anit-roll bar. I'm not sure that your idea will work without some modifications. The transponder might not fit either.

I wonder if Xray made a switch in bearing producer for them?

History - When I first bought my xray evo 2 after it first came out, the shields popped off very easily. Ralph Burch sent me some high speed bearings as a replacement for free, those shields popped. I switched to Acer (those popped off) than decided on some new xray high speed again. After 10 race days, the bearing shields haven't popped off on any of the bearings. I hope it stays that way. Good props to xray to finally get the problem solved on the popping shields.

Look back a few pages for a photo of Alex Lopez's car where he's using the plastic brace, new sway bar, and the pre-cut foam bumper with the PT mounted inside--it works fine. Your other option is to cut out the front center of the stock plastic brace so it resembles the pre-cut graphite brace. That would make the PT more accessible, but the plastic may flex too much.

If you're not using a PT then you'll need to mount if somewhere else... Xray has a plastic transponder holder that comes with the T1R, for example.
