Default Thanks

Hey Ron C, thanks for the reply...I never thought about it from that angle. I am going to give it a try, with these new motors making unbelievable power fuel management is definitely a problem.

rear pivot balls will be around:

rear ball ~ 3.80mm
front ball ~ 3.20mm

This results in a track width of ~ 264mm and toe-in of about 2 degrees. Obviously the camber is set with the upper arm.

Default Roll bar

What do you guys think about the rear adjustable bar?

Does it work?

Or is it better to stick with the original 3mm fix ?


THks in advance

Default roll bar

Most pro's I've seen use the wire bar, not the adjustable one.

hey guys i seam to have a build problem with the front stablizer bar.
ive built the front end as the book, set the lower arm height from the ground to zero like it says in the setup sheet..

however the stablizer bar is pointing up at angle. now this doe snot seam right as my rrr lays flat and so did my previous cars.
ive pushed the stablizer bars in as far as they go but they still seam long.

hey
i set the pivot balls with a 3mm gap measured from the bottom and i noticed that the universals dont have enough inward travel ?? meaning the suspension arms dont have enough upward travel. i noticed this when i unscrewed the pivot balls i was able to lift the suspension arms much higher.

what are you guys setting the front track width to be ?
ill sort this out when i put the wheels on.

please see my pics. this pic is with the arm height set to zero as per the setup sheet.

does any one have any front on pics to see how the sway bar should look ?
Thanks heaps! John

I am not sure if you made the same mistake I did, but I did not realize at first that the steering blocks have a right and left. I had them switched at first and the suspension had no travel either. Dumb on my part but once I put them on the correct side it was perfect.
