Default Rear sway bar

Can someone please explain how to set up the rear sway bar with reference to the 'turnbuckles' ie what length relates to hard or soft?

The closer the turnbuckles are to the end of the swaybar the softer the feel, the closer the ends are to the bend in the swaybar the stiffer the feel.
I would recomend you buy an adjustable rear swaybar,Kawahara,3 racing........some people say the 3 racing swaybar has too much slop, but I personally dont think it is too much of an issue.

Default Front upper A arm slop

What do you guys do about the slop that seems to develop with the front upper arms? Do you just replace them on a regular basis or shim them?

This is not a bad idea. Enlarge the hole to slip and epoxy a copper tube that fits snuggly over the hinge pin. Think I'll try it on my MTX2 to see if it works. Thanks EVO

Now THAT is even better than a sleeve I wouldn't worry about the bearings seazing, I would much more worry about breaking the table in an unfortunate "clipping of a board" kind of thing

just use machined nylon arm and they should hold up much longer as wear is minimal for this material.
