As LiPo achieves more widespread acceptance, and if and when an actual standard for the pack shapes develop, I'm sure that the issue will be adressed.

As it stands now there is no set shape or design for LiPo packs. If a change is made to accomodate the Orion packs it may not work with future releases from other manufacturers.

This is not an official Xray statement...merely my observations based on my experiences in design, sales and marketing.

How would a rear sway bar work if a track was noticable wavy, especialing in one turn. And what if there were cacks in the ground that were not even. Would that have a negative effect?

Two tracks local to me are "special" at best, but its a place to race.

I wasn't sure how a rear sway bar would work on pavement with rubber tires.

Second question... You can run different roll center front vs. back?

A swaybar won't change your dampening characteristics it will only increase the "roll Stiffness" so if you are running on a bumpy track you could use soft springs and light weight oil but use the swaybar to control the roll on the corners.

Yes you can run different roll centes front to and rear.

Thanks Pucho...

And yet another...lol Sorry guys.

My chassis is grinding the pavement through this long fast sweeper. Other then jacking my ride height up, what can I do? Would the answer above on sway bars help the car not roll as much through the sweeper? should I run both? just curious.

shorter camber links, or raise the arm mounts.. provided you have enough grip already. i'd bump up my ride height though. a little goes a long way.

I put on the aluminum rear hubs. I haven't gone to the knuckles yet, but I plan to. Remember that something has to break in hard crashes. I hit a wall in practice and pulled my car off the track to avoid breaking something before quals started. I got half a lap in on the first qualifier and pulled my car because it was spinning out on right hand turns. Turns out that I bent a screw that holds in the hinge pin carrier and didn't catch it. A broken part is easy to see, a bent screw is a little more difficult.

chicmagnet,

Many times switching to aluminum rear hubs will slightly stiffen your car up very similar to switching hardness of your A-arms. The plastic hubs will have a little more flex to them which could aid in traction So, having said that if you are racing on asphalt this is something you may want to try out during practice.

I hope this helps, Mike
