I heard my name.

How to adjust rear sway bar? Are you using stock 1-piece bar? Can you elaborate a bit more?

If it is the stock sway bar then you will need to get the optional bars. They (Kyosho) have several different thicknesses.

you can make small adjustment by moving the two ball joints in or out. to loosen it, move the ball joints out, to stiffen it, move the ball joints in.

I suspected this, but was not sure.

Where dose the setting start from? (Loose)

When the pivot ball is flush with the sway bar? Then move in what increments?

Thanks litespeed-dom and Jag,

I am running the stock bar, but also have the silver 1.8 from Kyosho.

The info from Data is what I think I needed. What I know is that you can change the thickness of the bars, but within this parameter, you should be able to adjust even further. I suspected that the pivot balls was the way to do it, but was not too sure.

Thanks for coming to my assistance. Any further suggestions or comments are fully welcomed. I want to know everything about this car.

Data is correct. You can make the bar stiffer by moving the links in from the end. If you have them mounted at the end and need it to be softer then you will need to change the bar.

I hope this helps.

I change them when they get gritty unless I get a set of ceramics... then I would change them all at the same time.

If you have plenty of money you could get a set of ceramic bearings from Boca Bearing or you could get a set from Acer Racing and save yourself $90.

Harder springs in the rear, allows the car to rotate more in the corners. Its another way of sending (transferring) weight to the front end, to free up the rear.

V1,
years ago when I first saw one of Hara's set-ups with harder rear springs, before knowing anything about weight transfer, I didn't understand it either.
