Looks like I would need to replace my current 3 Racing side brace to use this sway bar, is that correct. Would be good if there was more than just a top view.

Thanks, for the part nos. I'm trying to make a 200mm outlaw car out of a Reflex I have laying around.

Hey Tenderfoot57 the Reflex has a steering servo mount that is adjustable to lower the servo.

when you lower the servo you will be putting more bump steer into the car.


I do have a question on the k factory tank, I was reading that it would'nt work on the evo, is this because it is to wide and will hit the break- gas servo, or is the some other reason, still waiting for my kit to get in from tower, they keep putting the recieving date bake on me

Yes this is exactly right. The stock tank sits up hard against the steering servo, well almost within a few mm.

You know the tank is not as bad as it appears. If you look at a lot of these "low cg" cars they have a large cutout below the tanks for battery packs. This in fact raises the fuel considerably. Look at both tanks when half full (the average level in any given race) and you will find that the Kyosho tank is pretty much ok. It is only a very small bit higher in CG.

Get the battery pack and motor down low and the tank is not a very big issue.

Default lower steering servo

Will I still get alot of bump steer if I keep the steering linkages at the same angle as stock. The guy at my lhs said if I change the angle of connection that I would get more bump steer but not if I keep the angle the same.

Maybe it's not that good of an idea. More hassle than gain?

Thank you for your input.

when you lower your servo. you need to use another servo saver with a higher steering rod position, this will offset the difference due to lower the servo. i used a snake servo saver to do the trick.

Thanks to all those that posted pics of the sway bar,

It does raise another question.
1) Does the sway bar come with all the hardware i.e. the right side brace.

Also it would appear that the five stars left side brace will not fit. Are you happy with no brace on that side.

it comes with all the hardware that you need to put the sway bar on your car. i am very happy with the rear sway bar set even i cannot put on my "charge" left side stiffiner.

Yes you will alter the bump steer as manticore has mentioned. It is almost impossible to keep the stock angle after loweringas there is insufficient room.

I lowered mine a heap and just reversed the ballstuds to the top of the saver and it always seemed to work nicely.

Just cleaned all the bearings and rebuilt the shocks and everything. My Evo is hungry again. Manti, don't forget the food.

BTW, I'm still for the Charge rear sway bar over Kawa. It's scary for missing the left brace.

The G4 belts are way too ugly.

Ah, I need a strong pipe too. But I won't raise the dump question on the choice to go.
