To setup a roll bar correctly refer to the Xray link, it is the same principal but just on a different car! To change the "setting" of the roll bar it is just a case of changing the angle of the flat portion of the blades...I think we have agreed on this point!

Hmm...i think i might have used the wrong sentence and led to certain degree of misunderstanding of what i was trying to convey...let me rephrase my question...

My question :
When installing the anti-roll bars, do we need to have the 2 bars' meeting point to point upwards? [like i saw in impulse]
Or install the 2 bars in a straight line [not pointing up and but horizontally]?

Thanks...

The reason i posted this question is because i find it impossible to have the 2 bars pointing upwards.
So i gotta install them in a straight line. However, when i tried to press down the front, the meeting point touches the chassis and it seems [no matter what angle i set i.e. soft, medium & hard] i cant feel the difference...!
Juz wondering if i had done something wrong during installation...
R u guys having your anti-roll bars pointing up or in a straight line?
Can any1 kindly snap a pic of your Front Anti Roll Bars and lemme have a look?

Many thanks

i think your front tire is super big !!

you cannot feel the difference when you press the front end of the car while both wheels moving upward. hold the car and try to lift one side of the wheel and you will see the difference.

Yes you will not notice any difference if you push down the front of the car because you are moving both wheels. Anti roll bar only works when one wheel is taking more load....try just lifting one wheel only!!

Default Battery charger

May i know which battery charger do guys normally use that can charge starterbox battery packs, Receiver pack, or maybe Transmitter battery?
I am looking at a mid-range charger. Orbit and Chameleon charger is way too expensive...cannot afford!
Charger like Orbit and Chameleon are meant for PROs who play more Electric Cars?
A friend recommended Apex Beta+ to me, made in HK. And i read some info on their page at www.apexhk.com. But is now considering it as it is much cheaper and affordable.
Can u guys comment on chargers please?
thnkx

ahhh....not the most obvious solution...but you're right....a servo that is on its way out can do this!! Glad you sorted it anyway!
