The last I check I thought Burien Toyota had them. It might also say discontinued, but I thought that was removed form the catalog, as the recent releases of the Miata and the Alfa.
But give Kevin @ Burien a call 1 800 654-6456

I'll try that I was just hoping to find one on line somewhere. I've got my alfa hooked up finally on carpet but it really could use the sway bars.

Default No Need for Sway Bars

Hi,

The winner of the Tamiya Asia Cup (last Sept 26), did not use any swaybars. Reason he said was to save weight, 10 grams for rear and 10 grams for front swaybar.

His car was handling very well on the carpet track. Red springs rear, yellow springs front.

Good luck.

We have a very good class of mini's going at Trackside with a National champ and all who races weekly. The carpet is very high bite, they run allot of foam tires on the track so it is extremly sticky. The car rolls alot and does not change direction as fast as I would like. I have it hooked up pretty good. Last week Dave Weir (past tcs national champ) took tq and I managed to win the main. I am very happy with the car just hoping to get some more of the roll out of it somehow.

Default Ride Height

Hi,

Forgot to mention ride height was around 3mm, but even then, traction roll was sometimes a problem on sticky portions of the track in TAC HK 2004.

Receivers, transponder, and speed control mounted as low as possible (on the sides of the chassis). Champ used very light Keyence esc and light receiver and servo.

Also if running counterclockwise, the right rear shock was preloaded compared to the left rear shock.

Good luck.

Joel

Nope, don't got 'em! Sorry, have not been able to get for some time now. I was just checking again to make sure, but horizon, and Tamiya both show No Longer Available!

Let me know of any thing else you might need!
Kevin
