Softer - Increased Rear Chassis Roll, Increased Rear Traction, Decreased Front Traction, Decreases On Power Steering (May Cause Understeer)

Stiffer - Decreased Rear Chassis Roll, Decreased Rear Traction, Increased On Power Steering (May Cause Oversteer), Quicker Steering Response in High Speed Chicanes

Hate to be the one to tell you, the car wasn't design for the U.S for our hi traction tracks

I know if you sanded it down you could get it down to 2.0mm.
Maybe a dremel.

Must be a typo...

I have seen lots of guys using HUDY, that are very nice.
I use a mugen I find it very good too.
A lot of us use a single 4 cell LIPO that way only on battery to charge not two.
Main thing to watch out for is make sure the type you get has a narrow wheel and a small diameter. As I have found the thunder tiger type is too wide and to big to get in the hole cutout in the chassis.

Oh sorry Greg, our track has a few bumps but is pretty much smooth for the most part. But as stated by the doctor , a thinner rear sway bar allows the car to roll a bit more creating more rear traction. I tried it because I found the new chassis more rigid than the original so the car relies More on the suspension. The 2.2 feels great.

Last season I used the ofna JLR little starter box which worked great with my xray but then I realized it was bending the chassis every time I pressed down with the igniter. I use the mugen box. Works great!

Looking for a good easy to drive setup for a medium sized track with some open and some tight sections. Are stock 200K/50K diff oils too thick for tighter tracks? Looking for some things to try, car seems edgy with stock setup.

Oils are fine. Try a small sway bay in the rear . What are the issues that your having?
