    How do you like your sway bar? I took mine off after the third race and gained about a second a lap.
    And it looks like you have an aluminum bulkhead,you don't need a tie bar with that.

    I use this vehicle for bashing only. The sway bar really helped with my chassis roll though, The front end always wanted to dive into turns. Regarding the tie bar, oh well, I had no idea i didn't need it with a aluminum bulk head.Plus it looks better than washers taking up the extra space on the hinge pins.I do appriciate the advice! I had a nasty run in with a curb and it took out the factory tie bar, bulk head & the shock end, so I just ordered everything all at once.

    It looks really nice,it's just on the track,I want the front to dive a bit,it gives me more control. And one of the guys I talk to on this sight loves his also,he jumps his truck a lot,and it gives him good jump control,I saw a pic of his truck lunching off a jump,and it looked perfect.
    I run the pro line shocks also,was going to get another set,but want to look into these gtr's a bit more first,I'll probable just get both.

    I just ordered the spring assortment from Proline, Have you had any experience with them? I'm interested in stiffening up the rears a little. And as for buying both pairs of shock...I like your style!
