sway bars

Who has sway bars besides Jeff? I am considering getting some, but worried about high speed woops and mogals. How does everyone like them and opinions on them for ROUGH, high speed terrain.

Re: sway bars

I know you have PM'd me already but Jeffpec has them too and I believe Mike from Red Rock Powersports put a set on a redline going over seas somewhere. I don't remember who it was for.

Thank you Red Rock powersports, Harmon Racing Cells, Blackmore Sign's and T's, Psychoholic Racing, Lucas Oil Products and 777 Race Cars.

Re: sway bars

Well got the sway bars spaced out and mounted correctly. THEY ARE SWEET!!! I can rip dohnuts like you would not believe. Very little body roll and I mean like almost nothing. I can back it into corners at speed and be on the gas hard at the appex. Huge thanks to Jeffpec and John at 777 racing for the involement with the Revolts. I really like that all I have to do is pull 4 bolts and am back to Dune ready. I would recommend these to anyone not wanting body roll and can't afford new coilovers. Cheap fix. I was also surpised that it really did not hurt me in the rough stuff like I thought they would.

Re: sway bars

Even if you have coilover shocks you still need these to slide the cars. Even Elka recomended running sway bars with their shocks. I love sliding the car around. I keep mine on in the sand. I like the more stable feeling I get. You could also revalve the stock shocks for not to much money to improve the handling. I was able to lower my car 6" and still not bottom out with some different valving and oil weights.

My Set up is for Short course racing I kept the stock Rebound valving and I made the front comression #70 and Rear is a #95. I use 300CC's of 10 Wt shock oil in the fronts and and 330CC's of 30 Wt oil in the rears. The Nitrogen in the shocks is 140PSI Front and 170PSI Rear. Not a good setup for rough desert courses but works good on jumps and for cornering. Here is a link to some other shock setups on the forum.

If you look through my pictures you can see how the car corners with all 4 tires on the ground. the sway bar and lower ride height allows more control and stability in the corners.

I have added 30cc of 3W in the front and rear which helped alot. I run more of the desert style riding so I do not want to go much stiffer. I can slide it (with no fear) at 40-50mph in the "sand", I ride in mine tailings. I am running 260 in the rear and I think I am at 150 in the fronts with stock valving. Oh and just an added note GPS said 77mph last Sunday. ZOOM ZOOM!!!!

Here are some pics. If you order these for the xl you will need to get the through tube ID. The Revolt they were originally designed for was a regular and the xl is a little wider so the stub shaft on the trailing arm mount needed to be legthened buy 1/2" and I made my own bushings for the through tube in the frame instead of having John do it. You just need to let him know of the changes or I can call him and tell him about it.
