Harshguy: Would you mind sharing the setup? We run on VHT here as well and I would be interested in trying it out.

It's at www.gearchart.com ...go to the "Electric Setups --> On Road Setups" ...look for my name under driver (Arroyo, Javier) , it's the 2 "Points series" setups one is for stock one is fo 19T ...I actually am running a little different now, but that's what Roger downloaded ...and "word of caution" ..it's very "twictchy/sensitive" whatever you want to call it, you have to drive it and have good throttle control in, during and out of corners.

Default sway bar help

Hey guys,

I was helping my buddy install sway bars on his FK05. I need some help.

They didnt seem to have much effect untill the arms were almost fully raised. We of course shortened the lever arm, but by the time we got the sway bar to react quicker-the sway bar mounts hit the driveshafts.

Any tips on how to make the sway bars (Front and rear) take effect with less suspension travel?

Thanks in advance,
Ray

Ray, you need to use the outer hole on the arm. Mine began to raise the opposite arm as soon as I lifted one side.

Someone knows how much lower the front foam shock tower is in compare to the stock one? The Xray website doesn´t say anything on this.

kewl ...yea at SWR I've been "floppin" back and forthe between a oneway and a locked oneway (not a spool) ...and sometimes adding a mm spacer for rear toe ...we can't run VHT at the track, between the police station, fairgrounds, SPCA, and child day care they get "wierd" about stuff like that on the ground (we also get "spanked" if we spray motor spray on the ground) ..I'm gonna be testing Aaron's "secret sticky sauce" tomorrow and see how that works out.

Weather's been getting progresively and exponentially hot, I'd expect low 100's by the 15th.
