    So all I can find is two brands of sway bars. And both wont work with the roll cage. Anyone know of any others?

    Why do you need a sway bar? are you running or road or track? I go around a very tight track fairly well without them, it just doesn't seem like a good purchase for me. I'll borrow my brother in-laws that he doesn't use sometime and see if they really make a difference, but from what it sounds like you don't really need them.

    For me I found that the sway bars made my truck a lot more controllable and stable on 2/3s.

    I guess the traxxas sway bar also doesnt work with the T-Bone rear bumper, or does it? Hm, i actually wanted to try the sway bars but now i don't know anymore.

    Hot racing also seems to make sway bars

    Hey 50, I found this website that can machine custom parts for people. Maybe someone could send them a bulkhead that had been modified for a losi diff so they could make one out of Titanium!! http://www.zerohourparts.com

    I know this is a long shot if anyone would be willing to try to make one lol. But we can all dream can't we?

    Are you sure? I haven't tried installing Tekno sways on the rear yet, but my HPP brace is on and I can't imagine how it could possibly prevent you from installing the swya bar mount...

    where we bash it's pretty rough .some hills the merv would be fishtailing back and forth just trying to make it up the hill and the erbe just cruises up with no problem. right now we only take the merv's when my erbe or embe is down
    this is one of the hills!

    I was adjusting the Hr double up slipper clutch. Couldn't get it to slip until it was too loose .so I set it where I can just barely nice the slipper when holding the shaft with my hex.
    Anyone who has the double clutch how do you set yours?

    Just got a double slipper myself mate...I am putting it on a road build I've started...this rig is way lighter than my eRevo so we'll see how it holds up.

    From your above explanation that's how I would set mine.

    Most people change the form of their car to run on different surfaces, you build different cars with a specific surface for each one, I look up to you mate Let me know how that double slipper holds up to "Craig abuse".

    I agree...this guy has some awesome builds...I see he is in the Rally section now with Humayray...it must be the rode build he is referring to.

    fingers crossed for a good run and a long long run without breakage this time. are you thinking its going to be faster or slower than before? with the different in gear ratios.

    I got the tekno sway bar in today. In the rear I had to make the toe links shorter to clear the hpp motor brace but works perfect!

    Here's the front
    With the traxxas sway bar I had to bend it so it wouldn't hit the roll cage

    Now I have to figure how to get my wheelie bar working. Had to take it off wouldn't work with the roll cage either
