Default swaybar Q.

I have a shaft tub chassis madspeed i put swaybars on it and everytime i took off it would pull to one side and very hard to drive.I took both of them off and it's nice and straight and easy to drive.I thought sway bars made it handle better.

Swaybars/Antiroll bars can also cause tweak if not setup correctly. First off the bar should ride smooth and free underneath those 2 screws. If you pinch the bar and it is not allowed to glide freely then you are basically adding a spring to each side of the car...

To get it setup correctly remove the shocks and hold the car upside down and compress the arms left then right. Holding the left side (full droop) see how much the right side drops down... Then hold the right side (full droop) and see how much the left side drops down. Adjust the mounts until the "drop" is identical and the bar should work properly without tweaking... You can do a similar setup with measuring tools but its more intensive and timely...
