Should i add an anti-roll bar?


I even tried fixing it, put everytime i flex the springs the front is softer than the rear, which shouldn't happen. Can someone help me?

Thanks

Jon
I would try a stiffer setup. Most of the guys here are running light purple to purple spring(xray) and we are running plaid up front and purple in the rear.

xray springs are color coded. light purple is 30lbs, and purple is 33lbs.

But you could go to xray vip room and look up a setup for josh or alex. these are ususally a good setup to start from.

Top of the day to all drivers, I have a problem with my rear shock,
I went to the short arms on my evo2 foc and the shock mount on
the rear arm the outer of the two will not fit the shock end it rubs on the wheel, the factory manual shows to put the shock on the
outer hole what are you guys doing to get it working.

Either move the shock in one hole , or cut the rims down if they are not the right size

berger - Orange-Purple/Purple and Orange-D.Pink/D.Pink is pretty much what people run on carpet/ozite in the US. High grip, High wear, Stiff setup, Very fast.

The belts will fray along the edges. I haven't seen or heard of anyone breaking a belt.

On the short arms the inner hole is the same as the middle hole on the long arms. To make the outer hole you have to do some surgery with the dremel. You have to cut off the nub and then go into the arm about 1mm you basicaly will end up with a cut out sort of like this \___/ You will also need to trim some material off the hub. You may want to get an additional set of arms to do this to. I hope you understand and I didn't confuse you much.

Thumbs up

Pucho, thanks for the info I thought that the hole was the one that match the middle on the long arm, in the factory instruction
they have the shock mounted on the outer hole but it might
be a error in the printing, did you tried the setup you gave me?
what was the difference in handling?.

Im no longer running the Xray but I am still working on them, this was done at the snowbirds to move the shock to a more vertical position and make the rear end more reactive.
