The rotary cam thingy is there for a purpose ! It levels the sway bar tension after the sway bar is installed. Just like you would need to readjust the lengths of the rear sway bar connector rods after you find a tweak when you put back the rear sway bar...

Ummm, that reminds me... I need to renew the license for this nitro dirt Photoshop filter that I'm currently using ! Can I get a 1 year waiver for this, Mark?

Is that just a car stand or does it clamp the car as well? It looks like its homemade? Man I miss our house in Los Angeles, when I see those cabinets it makes me think of our house in the states I want to move back so bad! Soon...very soon

I did try rotating the cam through about 120 degrees in about 4 different steps and it didn't seem to make any difference. But I think you are on to something here and I will try starting with no sway bar and then working the cam again to see what I find.

Thanks

[HUMOUR_ON] Really! [HUMOUR_OFF]

I always have tweaked my car first with the sway bars disconnected, then reconnected the back and adjusted the rod length it until the tweak was ok once more, then the same with the front, adjusting the cam to the required amount.

Maybe your chassis isn't true!

Do all your suspension parts move freely, i.e. detach the shocks and sway bars, raise the suspension arms and see if they fall onto the drop stops under their own weight.

Cheers, Mark.

I have one too. Is that one able to hold shocks when you want to rebuild them?

Mine is spot on on the tweak station and when you do the center chassis lifting. Of course, you need to use new tires or tires with similar diameter. I overlooked this one of those times and what a bummer ! I did everything like checking the shock rebounds, shocks lengths only to find out that I used worned out tires !

How is that even possible on a new 4 mm chassis?

Mark, you will find that assembling the 710 is completely a different experience from assembling the 705 ! I think it's like assembling the Surikarn ! Every part fits without modification and free moving.

When tweaking, do you do like in the setup book? I've always adjusted the spring tension on the shocks at the end of the car where there is an imbalance (left to right), but the setup book says if the front is tweaked adjusted to rear spring tension.

Actually I start of by just looking at the front or the back by placing a hudy block under the other end of the car. Once the front and back are balanced, I take away the hudy block and then check the tweak again (front and rear).
