When we first announced that we were working on So Dialed, a lot of folks asked for a troubleshooting guide on how to fix common handling problems. Here is what we came up with!
Quick tip explaining the effects of an anti-roll bar on an RC car and when you might want to use a lighter or a stiffer bar.
How to fix understeer (push), oversteer (loose), and other common handling problems for both on-road and off-road RC cars.
Max Mört goes in depth on anti-roll (sway) bars, explaining how they affect handling for off-road cars, how to choose thicker or thinner bars, how the anti-roll bar affects the car over jumps, how important it is in comparison with other settings, and how ARBs interact with your wheelbase and driveshaft choices.
Is your sway bar really set to the same setting on left and right? Check out this video from McTips to see how to make sure your tweak is really set properly, especially for on-road cars.
