I am runing the RD Logics chassie, universals, Kawahara sway bar in the rear, Kawahara rear shock mount,Clamp on wheel hexes, 3 Racing shock towers, 3 Racing 3rd. body post in the front. At the nats I ran 58mm tires and had to add 40 grams of weight to get the car to legal, I qualified 7th. in the Masters A Main, but didnt get to run the main because of a throttle servo failer.

I dont run the 16/19 pullys, the shock towers are 5mm thick, RD Logics unis. are not as tough as the Mugen ones . Do you run on a permanant track?

not really we run in a parking lot, its the same place all the time though, its asphault, and we use real boards, wood all the way around so it will cost me less money in broken rims and uprights if i can get the best hop ups that alow me a better setup.

the last race i was doing real good but i am going on my own setup and i am playing it by ear, the sway bars are a total mystery to me? i need a setup board also, but i do ok

The front sway bar is flat, for the most body roll.

You xcan loosen the set screws on the plastic pieces, rotate the two sway bar pieces so that they are paralel to the ground. The more you stand them up, the stiffer it gets.
