yes i set the front sway bar parallel to the ground the tightened it down, droped my ride heght, and adj my toe in the front and i was planted running 35s all the way around. also i ran a wider front end than i had ever ran and she was set. i took some tips from a pro driver and my toe was way too wide, this let me make the turns like day and night, couple more races and look out!!!

Default gear ratio?

i am running stock gearing in my mtx 3 which is 47/43 to 16/20 and i geuss these are 1.0 gears. i saw a guy at the track who had a bad a$$ motor but also had the 0.8 gears and it screamed!!

it seems as if my car goes though the gears a little slow for me, i race a technical track with at least one good long strecth, what are some suggestions for gearing. i asked the guy but of course i didnt remember it or right it down (in front of him )
