Sorry adelmundo, I wont consider this hop up as this will seize some of the power from your engine. If you have good air flow from outside body shell into inside body shell, you really dont need this thing. If you do not have good air flow from outside of the body shell, you are just circulating warm/hot air inside the body shell.

my 2 cents.

I only ever use swaybars when I want my car to handle 'flatter'. For example, when going through a s-bend, pay particular attention on how flat you car takes it.

I've seen the Kyosho ARB, these things are huge compared to the Mugen ones
the track has a mixture of reasonably fast (about 40m straight) and some tight twisty bits (switchbacks and things of the like). It is also a mixture of smooth and off camber bumpy surfaces.....

Another piont that i found very interesting was that the kyosho rubber setup sheet seemed to work very well, yet the foam setup not as well....... any thoughts? I was thinking that the heat may be starting to play a part in the deterioration of the traction of the foams...

The setup with foams is meant for more aggressive driving?
BTW, what's the temp down under at this time of the year?

Thanks manticore for your opinion. Actually I know the unit will seize a little power from the car since it attaches to the crank, and will a little weight to the rotating mass of the crank., but I notice that maybe with a little modification, kind of interesting just looking at it, iof I can make a forced air induction system for it, since it butts right next to the carb opening. Maybe have it act like a supercharger LOL. Here is a pic of it...:

Default Roll bars

Hey I just got the K factory handshake type front rollbar. It a nice bit ok kit. It seems to work a lot better than the kyosho one. doesn't add to the spring rate. I'll give it a wurl in a day or so...

What do you mean "tilt adjustable" You roll the bar to adjust the stiffness. From what I can see of them they look like they are.

the way you mentioned is adjust the stiffness.

what i mean is the balance between left to right. on the other car there is an eccentric collar so that you can make the adjustment to balance left/right.

most of the 1/8 come with this. the MTX2 prospec come with this kind of sway bar. mainly most of the handshake type roll bar should have this for fine adjustment.
