Im going to get aluminum axle carriers but which ones are the best? I was thinking gpm hr or gh. Im a hard basher so i need something durable. Also any opinion on hr sway bars?
I have the gh carriers. Holding up great can't go wrong. Some have problems with the hr carries they have a round hole while the others are square and some have the pillow balls pulling through
I also have the hr sway bar on my other merv. Helps alot in the corners obviously!

My gh knuckles have held up to Hard Bashing..for say 7-8 months so far..and they be the square hole variety..I have pulled balls thru trx, rpm, but that's what I get doing cartwheels!!
1/16 EREVO, 1/10 SUMMIT
Ok ill try the gh carriers. would you recommend sway bars on a dirt track?
I don't know how great it would be in the dirt on a track. Bashing around it works fine . With the sway bar if you compress one wheel then the other and let go of one it holds the other wheel up a bit. If that makes sense
sawybars help handling, but limit articulation
i would get gpm or gh.... hr is usually a fine company, but their knuckles have documented issues with quality control on the threads, 50/50 chance of being bad..... for the same price as the gpm or gh, that have little to no reported issues

Have you seen the hr sway bars up close? They don't work like a true sway bar like on my s2000 or even my 1/8 scale buggy.
With the hr on a track if you hit a bump that compresses both tires then the ground drops down on one side. That tire will hang in the air where a car with a conventional sway bar would lower the tire and have contact

So are there any sway bars that you would recommend?
For the track run wider offset rims and some good tires
What could i do about the sway bars if i got them?
Run them! I have ran them bashing and they worked good
