    Myself, I thought about tapping the arms and inserting a ball stud.
    It wouldn't be much trouble, but instead, I just ordered a couple sets of the stock arms since they're pretty cheap.
    I posted a topic very similar to this a couple months ago and all the responses where,
    "You don't need sway bars".
    In my unique case, I disagree. My Jato's purpose for me is strictly to scratch my occasional itch for blistering speed.
    I've got a couple monster trucks that I actually run more, but I wouldn't part with my Jato.

    Pretty sure drilling holes in RPM a-arms will void their warranty... Might want to check with RPM.

    I looked and looked for the rpm zip tie mod. But gave up on searching for it and just did it myself. Will post pic later.

    Looks good from my house one_handed.
    Warranty? Really. I'm pretty sure shipping to redeem said warranty would cost more than the part itself.
    Maybe not. I'll never find out.

    Dogs, heck. Zip ties are mans best friend.LOL. Sway bars not needed for off road, but on road they are useful correct? Any other takes on that notion?

    I haven't gotten to test my fresh zip tie mod yet due to carb issues. But I've also got rear sway bar coming in to test the on road and off road capabilities. The difference with just the front on is night and day. Just wish the sway bars for the revo were as cheap as the jato haha
