Default Rear anti-roll bar

Fitted the new anti-roll bar kit to my car - trying the 3mm one first. I came across a similar problem to the front alu anti-roll bar holders, in that after mounting the new rear kit, the suspension was binding I assumed that the clamp holding the anti-roll bar was a little too tight, so I removed the paint from the anti-roll bar and polished it - no improvement Next I check the ball joints which attach to the end of the bar itself. They also seemed to bind a little in the plastic cup, so I took them out and polished them, too until they moved freely......no improvement!! Then I noticed that the adjusters (the items connecting the bar to the suspension arms) were touching the rear drive shaft I loosened off the retaining screw on the ball joint and moved it along the bar a little (2mm). Now the adjusters no longer touched the drive shafts and the suspension no longer binds
Oh well, you live and learn

Here's a pic before I started polishing the roll bar

I think that computer games will do better. I had decent lap times in CMR2.
Ive seen couple videos from 3hobby.com and i noticed that most of the drivers use airplane type transmitters.
The question is: why?

Yes, I've heard and seen that the 3Racing ones are "brittle".

So you're saying the RDL ones have too much slop?

I beg to differ.

I think that flying skill only comes in handy when you hit a kerb at top speed and the car takes off. Then its all these flying experience which determines how many flips one can do and how the car lands!

It must be true, as some have offered me money to stop driving! That can only be a sign of real talent
