Make sure that the drive system to the front wheels is in god shape (belts pullies etc.) and that you have the correct pullies mounted for th eoverdrive chart you are using, if this is all good guessing you have low bite surface add a little overdrive.

Simplest method is larger fronts - try 6mm split instead of 7.

Hi JT,

Question one: "2851 - what do I do with the clear plastic tube included?"

Cut into 1/8th "pucks". You will use the piece(s) you just cut between the set screw and the sway bar. It will allow you to have a tight grip on the sway bar, keeping it stationary, but still be able to adjust. Plus, it keeps the set screw from scoring the sway bar


Question two: "what size pivot balls and screws"

To connect the upper end of the rear bar assy I use

FM624
5.8mm FLANGED BALL - STD

LA43H
5.8mm BALL ENDS - HARD


Feel free to call if you have additional questions. 650-280-6095[/QUOTE]

The small pieces of nylon are to be put into the two holes before the set screw so that the bar is not galled and so that you can have the option of snugging the bars and using a sway bar adjusting tool for on the fly adjustments.

As for the balls, sorry I for got they are not included with the bars any longer but the item you need is the short ball end.

Gotcha'. I ended up using 5.8mm Flanged Ball (Long) with long enough set screws and adding good oh Blue Thread Locker.

BTW, I called your (650) number and left a message because I had a question about how to get the front belt to clear (I have The Tensioner M3 installed) the KYO FMW34 Alloy Adj Ack Servo Saver set?
Seems that the top of the Saver Nut (Stand Off) is too high and rubs against the belt quite a bit to ignore its safety. Mind you, that the Kyosho instructions for the KYO FMW34 was printed in 2004 and instructed to screw the supplied 3x12mm screws from underneath, up through the 5.8mm Flanged Balls (2) and then finally through into the threads of the chosen Saver Nut (which isn't possible at all to do with that Flanged Ball as one end only fits an Allen head. The above was just to clarify things in detail. I believe I will attempt to use a correct length Set Screw (longer) instead of the Button Head per the out dated instructions sheet. I ask because I seen a picture on the Empire website with an M3 chassis using the same KYO FMW34 and quite possibly in conjunction with The Tensioner M3. So how did you guys do it?

No list has ever been published but essentially the clutch,transmission,belts and pulleys and the shocks and springs.
