Access to the front wire sway bar.

You think so? But electric 1/10 cars have front wire sway bars and full bumpers and no problems access them!

Nah, that's only done from the top.. they have the same system as at the back.. really wonder how this will work...

Anyways, seen the link to the lower a-arm in the front.. that's not really normal, can't see really what it is...

Having seen the car this past weekend and getting to try it out. I think many people will be happy. The front sway bar is easy to get to. Just like the rear end.

Just like they have with the 966, Serpent will start to get back some consumers with the sedan. I think many racers will come over to the Serpent brand when they see this car. Talk about listening to the customer and then giving it a Michael Salven design twist. This car is insane. Wish they would have let me bring it back home.

It is needed to connect the wire sway bar to the lower wishbone.

That i understand, but is it a pivot ball inside the lower a-arm?
I'm concerned about play on the pivot ball... the normal way would have worked too or is the space there too little?

Well done with your efforts DJ, i know its hard and very demanding doing both cars, as you also said, sounds like a great drive with the 8th. and some bad luck with Groskamp on his dash for TQ and the final. now take a well earned rest

There is no room for the usual ball. Or at least that would look hideous
No worry for slop, there won't be more than on the conventional method.

TM did during development of there last creation, but went back to "normal" engine placement.
I think you will have problems with the slide of the carb. binding with an engine mounted under an angle...

I think that could be solved, but how to set the play on the gear mesh?
