finally tested out 'newfound' flex.

Postby BDEUCE » Tue Aug 21, 2007 10:06 pm

well, i did the sploder spring swap a couple of weeks ago, and i also removed my rear swaybar. i didn't notice any on road handling change without the swaybar. i didn't get a chance to go into the woods until today, and holy crap does she flex! i'm half tempted to remove the front one now!!!

pics...

i was actually at the dump, and decided to drive up on an old excavator tire.

now look at the front, this picture is making me think the front swaybar has got to go, to give my d35 a chance to stretch it's legs (arms?)

i went to a local lake, alot of sand, there was this hill with pretty big ruts on it. last year, i tried to drive up it, but i lost contact with a wheel, and stopped going forward. today, i drove right up it. i had to go back up again, and stop on some of the ruts to show you this:

tis a thing of beauty.

so what do you guys think, remove the front? will i hate it on-road? this is still a dd until i can afford a smart car

You could remove it, but it will effect the onroad handling a bunch. But you will get some more flex but not as much as the front. TTB isnt designed to flex like a solid axel.

Make some quick disconnects for your swaybar that way you don't have to worry about your road handling so much.
