    need some input !

    So I can't stop my e-revo from rolling over. I have recently bought a sway-bar kit and changed the shock oil to 60wt, and added the long rocker arms front and rear?

    What surface are you driving on? More specific info is needed for a response other than guessing. Let us know some details.

    well, if you do a quick turn then you'll end up rolling it over. are your truck standing high? you mention you installed the LT rocker that probably lift the truck up. lowering the truck will help you from rolling over alot.

    Switch to stiffer springs (Summit double orange) and firmer sway bars if you just "love" massive ride height. You do need to realize that a monster truck stance will roll if its up high.

    If you can live with about 20% less height then switch back to P2 Rockers with stock length pushrods. The progressive nature of the P2 rockers resists flipping a lot more than your setup now.

    LT - Not progressive and is very plush and loose allowing articulation. Best used for crawling over rocks or large obsicals since it is 120mm travel. Weakness is sticky tires onroad will flip.
    P1 - slightly progressive with less total travel, 90mm. Best used with low wt. oil in something like a rough field full of ruts that require fast movement to soak up bumps.
    P2 - more progressive and good all around. Also allows to tune with sway bars.
    P3 - most progressive witch resists body/chassis roll and negates sway bars. Best used for onroad or someone desiring a stiff setup. Weakness is it cant articulate to crawl.

    PS. To get mine to drive for my style i needed P3 rockers (most progressive) with P3 pushrods (longest pushrod) and the stiffest springs (pink and purple dots).

    Its All relative to your perspective.

    In a short time you might start going thru drive shafts, if you are using the LT rockers. Atleast it was for me.
    Switch back to the P2's & throttle control will help with roll over's..

    When you run the LT you might need the LT springs they are longer.

    Smaller tires,p3 rockers with matching push rods will help lower the center gravity...worked for me also off set wheels will help to.
