Default DM1 Spec Sway bars

Just wondering if someone can explain to me how these sway bars work? Im an of road guy that is futzing around with on road, and these crazy sway bars make no sense to me. I understand the droop and up travel limiters on the adjustment blocks, but the stabilizer bars have me scratching my head as to how to adjust them for stiffer or softer settings.

Any help is appreciated.

They are adjustable blade type anti-roll bars. You can just rotate the blade on the fly to adjust stiffness. The softest setting is if the "blade" is horizontal (parallel to chassis). The stiffest setting is if the blade is vertical (perpendicular to chassis).

So thats it then? Seems like it would be hard to duplicate an in between setting. Thanks for the help

Anyone know of a traditional Bar style sway bars setup that fits the car? maybe something from one of the Ofna offroad cars?

It might....but the reason is why?

These BLADE type sway bar is the ON ROAD thing....most of the on road car are using this type of sway bar (mainly front) because that is what it need. You can adjust the blade in 45* for the in between type of setting...but my DM1 SPEC using on large 1/8th track or small parking lot track are mainly 90* vertical on the front and flat at rear....some of the time I disabled them both depends on the traction.

Using the typical piano wire bar does not help you cause you will ended up buying multiple bars front and rear and get frustrated.......

Sway bar on big heavy fake on road car like DM1 is not really a big deal....I am worry about the rear diff fall apart on DM1 Spec more...

I guess just mostly because that is what I understand better. I'll mess with the stock ones and see.

Not really setting it up for traditional circuit course on road use anyway. Im using it for parking lot oval. All left turns and no sharp corners. Pretty much all sweeping high speed turns.

Thanks for the education guys.
