    New sway bar set for mini slash revo and rally

    Take a look at the new sway bar set for the merv, there're at www.thetoyz.com, they should be on the first page after you go to the store for a while but once there're not new just type "mini revo anti roll sway bar" and that'll get you there. I'm thinking about getting some but I'm not really sure just yet.

    think it may have something to do with the rally... all the green parts started to show up once the Ken Block started selling, think it was aimed at people who wanted to have green parts on their Ken Block (which the color does not match) and also for those who like green

    There is a very slight difference but they do seem to give it a little more stability. They look really cool too. I'm going to start a photobucket acount later today so I should have pics up by sometime today.

    By the way, have any of you had diff stripping problems and if so how did you fix it cause I've already gone through 7 diffs and and have no clue why cause I'm not hard on it. I just do wheelies and stuff like everyone else.

    this will be an offtopic, you should use a search, there's hundreds of topics here about stripped diffs
    to save your rear diff (front is usually feels fine) do this:
    1) get an updated bulkheads with that long constricting bolt
    http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...t-Right-Halves
    2) put a center diff. you will be unable to make wheelies unless you put something like 300k diff oil in it, but even then you have to forget about backflips, but only this way you'll save your diff
    3) put some silicone sealant in between the halves to prevent dust and sand get inside and eat the teeth of your diff

    Sweet lookin merv there man! What shocks are those? The sway bars really do work it's just a slight difference but a slight differece can really help sometimes. By the way how did you get the pics to come up on this website, I've tried and tried and tried and nothing ever works for me. I have a photobucket acount but the pics still won't come up even when I get them off there.

    Nice man. Are those the shocks from the toys? If so, how do you like them? Do they tend to leak like the stock ones? I've been thinkin bout gettin em but wanted to hear what someone who has them thinks of them. The lower caps screw on right? And btw, where are the sway bars? Lol

    Yeah I got em' from the toyz. The caps do unscrew and I really do like them, they work worlds better than stock. They did leak, but only because that caps got unscrewed from me not paying attention to anything, so all in all they are very good shocks. And as for the sway bars, I didn't get a hold of a camera until tonight, but they may be up later if I get them uploaded off the camera.

    I'll get pics up of my sway bars later today, cause I finally got pics of them. I painted my wing to match my body yesterday just to see how it would look and it turned out OK but not as good as I would have hoped,( I'm not a very good painter):P

    I was happy to spend only thirty to have something that I know will work right, now give me the time to get the things installed and I will be even happier

    They are good. To me they seem like they give me more stability at higher speeds and it corners just a bit better.

    I should have pics by 7 or 8.

    Thumbs up

    I have them installed in the front :





    Although, I could not install them in the rear since they interfered with the Proline slipstream body...




    Nevertheless, no doubt, I am happy with this product. Ask Patoff, my MERV was fast and stable on our last track run... The only problem was the driver.

    There just stock rally springs. I thru them in some rit dye while dying my chassis just for giggles to see if it would work and they actually took the dye. I was surprised.

    then take a piece of lexan and wrap it around your arm and super glue it and leave a little tab to put the end of the sway bar to it, that way you don't drill holes.
