Hey guys, that was an awesome race the weekend, thanks.

Has anybody tried stabilizer bars on a mini, and does it help?
Thanks

hey Raider, did you win it? Stabilizing bars are complicated things. Getting it wrong is easy.

Ca'nt wait, will be interesting to see how you do with the rubber tires.
Been surfing through some forums, and it looks like the guys run a bar in front and not the back.
Guess i will have to see for myself.

Do you drag brake on entry into a corner? I tried it, and it made my car very twitchy, so i took it off, but i still think ultimately it is still faster. I guess i need to practise with it on.

I dont use dragbrake but a lot of people do, more so in the faster classes an when oneway diffs are used and braking is tricky.
The rubber tyres should work ok but i think i will suffer with straight line speed a little.

we must get some stab bars and mess around a bit then. I do however think that it will benafit the rubber tyre users more. We must also figure out a way to pull the caster back a bit. It can be done.

Buy the M05, more options for upgrades and tweaking. We'll have to step up before the return trip to be able to compete??? affraid
