Hi,

GPM made one for a while I'm not sure if they still do. I had made one for mini's TC3 but it was destroyed in a really bad wreck. it was cool because you could adjust the amount the oneway worked. as for Barrys and Ricks car beating you in the more open parts of the track this is a side effect of a shaft oneway. it is not pulling as hard a it is through the tighter parts. that's why I made the one for Mini's TC3. still try a .055 or lighter front swaybar (or none at all with a slighter higher ride height). also LMK if you need anything.
Thanks, i'll try that. The car was a squirrely mess without the swaybar in Toledo. Way too aggressive. I'll definately try the thinner bar. I just have to find one.

Talk to ya soon,

Tim

LOL.....hey sorry I never called you back, I was pretty busy, I took 3rd in stock truck with shane's ride, 12th in stock buggy, and 9th in mod.....great weekend overall!.........Cha-Lee won both stock classes and Balony won both mod classes.....STIFF competition, I think A-main qualifying was divided 1-10 by like 5 or 6 seconds (rocket round).

Sorry for completely getting off the subject of this thread.

My day is close. I guess you could say that I am in school. I service the pc's that school kids destroy. 18 schools and 4500 computers. It's usually a very long day.

We had Smokin fast 33mhz 8086's in high school, and my senior year we had enough cash for a $2500 486 DX-2 50MHZ screamin machine that we called simply, "The Beast." My cell phone has more processing power than either of those piles of crap.
