Yes, the anti roll bar could be needed. The sistem can create to much grip you can not correct with the front so using the anti rollbar is an option.

The head is new, looks like an STS head

The head on the Flash is a low profile one it brings 3 fins lower on the block of the engine and makes using an INS box easier as it's not pushed up against the head. Very nice evolution

Less tooinn on the rear and a heavier rear diff i should think would compentsate for the new kit. But thats just a thought. What do you guys think.

The 733 is already heavy out of the box. How much does the kit weigh????

Default Front Bumper and other modifications

Hi Guy's I have been running this car for the last couple of months, we spec race using RB Motors, the car runs pretty good and seems to be strong enough aside from the front bumper.

Someone said that you could use an NT1 bumper setup, anyone tried this?

Also wouldn't mind knowing some trade secrets on this thing?

ie: Shock oil, springs, tires, roll bars etc.

I would like some more overall grip, I have been running Matrix 37sh rears and 35sh fronts

Thanks
Grant

Roelof, is this a scratch built car or something that has been highly modified. You always amaze me with the things you create and modify. You are a very good hobbyist. Thanks for sharing!

i am not sure that i have understood the effects of it, but i am thinking that
it does act opposite that the anti-roll bar, is it true? when the outer wheel suspension
is compressed, some force is transfered to the inner wheel suspension, but this is
opposite that the force the roll bar creates. Also, looking at the photos of
the kit, wouldnt it be better if more holes where created into the
aluminium thing in which rods are mounted? so as to decrease or increase the
effect of it..

editing.
