    Sway bar kits?

    Do the sway bars really help any on the Revo?

    I have the Traxxas sway bars, you have to drill into the rear rockers to install them. The come with a jig and drill bit. It only takes a couple of mins. The Tekno are a straight bolt on. I heard they are good too but I never used them.

    Ive used both and prefer the Tekno brand. If you use Traxxas sway kit you have to use the Traxxas wing mount to put the bumper back on. The Traxxas rear sway bars stick out to far to use a RPM bumper mount or even the stock bumper mount.

    I have a traxxas sway bar kit fitted to my erevo, no mod required other then drilling the holes in the rockers to mount the sway bar, you get a little guide/jig that you use to ensure you get the holes in the correct place (make sure you use the correct side, one side for left rocker one for right). its easy.. it helps with stability and cornering preventing to much roll, its doesnt eliminate rolls and you still need good driving control but it does make a differance.
