    Motor brace, sway bar & chassis brace... at once?

    Hi,

    Is it possible to install the HPP motor brace, a sway bar and a chassis brace all at once on an ERBE?

    Thanks

    You'll probably want to fabricate a mount for the rear brace or just run it to one of the two shock mount bolts and get a longer bolt.

    The Traxxas sway bars don't interfere with the rear shock mount and the HPP brace is slightly in the way.

    If I was dead set on bracing the chassis I would probably get some 1/16" steel drill and shape it to fit under the bolts above the HPP brace and offset the mounting position backwards past the shock mount.

    Nice, I figured it would be possible, in worst case only a matter of getting longer bolts. I've got a Tekno RC sway bar kit coming, though, so as per suggestions on this forum I plan on using Traxxas sways on the front, and Tekno on the back.

    Will post a detailed report when everything has arrived and is installed.

    either you pick traxxas f/r sway bar or tekno, it work as for its purpose. what i like about tekno sway bar is that the rear is more safe (onboard) from breakage if land hard at the rear side, but all in all they work great!!!

    I went with the Traxxas because I was worried the Tekno would be prone to interference from the motor brace.

    At any rate with all the stuff I have on this truck it runs pretty good, diffs are still an issue, as are bearings but it rides smooth and has little roll. The front I wouldn't mind stiffening up more though.
