He explains that it has the opposite effect of a sway bar. It evens out the forces exerted on the tires so that the tire wear is even. Apparently they had a race on which one of the rear tires would wear more than the other, like GLARCRC where the left rear wears out more than the right, and they came up with this solution. It doesn’t say weather they tried it yet, or if it works. Its interesting for sure.

I use babel fish to translate. It's some sort of stabilizer that keeps constant pressure on both wheels at all times. I believe it says that both wheels always wear at the same rate and the car always brakes in a straight line.
I would like to know how this handles coming on to a big sweeper.

pretty impressive.....

Thanks for the info Steve and lil-bump.

I also noticed the car having White Springs on..... they're pretty stiff.

It will have no effect on tire wear. All that is going to do is remove the shocks and springs from effecting how the car rolls. So now only the sway bar will control the cars roll and in case you haven't noticed, there is no shock on the sway bar. It looks neat but it's a bad idea.

Im all for improving tire wear but you need that sway bar to exert that force onto the other side so it will stay planted.

Seems like this would throw off the balance of the car as it was designed to use a sway bar. I would think the rear of the car would be a bit off with this attached??? Does look cool but I'm not sure that translates to improved performance. As far as tire wear it's jus a part of racing. You may have to true tires at different sizes not just from front to rear but also from right to left depending on the track. I wouldn't sacrifice performance just so I could have even tire wear.

Regards,
Daniel

It gives the rear more like a 1/12 suspension, interesting but I do not think realy efective.

A friend is experimenting with the DAX suspension system on his 1/5 truck.

Now he has more grip and less tirewear !

WOW Roleof, now that looks like it has some serious potential. I could see a properly designed system like that having massive advantages for offroad cars. Onroad the differences might not be so great but may still work. I'd have to plot out the roll center changes with travel to be sure it would work right but that just might be worth a try.

It looks like it would effect the ride height, those links are attached to the upper pin. that could be lengthen to change the ride height.

The most funny thing about this system is that roll and ridehight does not affect the camber of the wheel compared to the ground.
