The part number is K-878: http://www.kawahara-racing.co.jp/k.878.html

If you don't get any other recommendations, you can probably get it through RC Advisor Champ:

The 2.5mm ones that was an option part on the MTX3 fits, but... isn't really needed a stabilizer of such size... 2.5mm is too big for the MTX4.

if you run the wire swaybar take it off and put it on a glass table,you may find that its not flat anymore one side is bent up this is why i like the blade rear sways, did anyone else see this.

I have used the 2.5mm rear swaybar many times. It is not too big... don't be afraid to try it when you need less rear grip.

You don't have to go to Japan to get Kawahara. Email [email protected] If the US distributor has the part in stock, he can get it in 1-2 days. I just got the new Kawahara front one-way with both sets of outrdrives. Easy.....

are you using an adjustable sway bar?
Which one is better, adjustable sway or the fixed one?
which one is more consistent?

The fixed ones are still adjustable. In most cases I use the thick one and adjust it to how much traction the track has.

I have a full set of the stock wire sway bars. When I was on the team, I went ahead and ordered all the wire sway bars. I have never used a blade type rear sway bar. When I want to adjust, I just change the bar.
