You can fit sway bars to the front and rear.

My Cougar Laydown arrived at my home in the morning (in France).
Too late to drive tomorrow with on my regional FFVRC race. I'll ride it quietly in the week to try it next weekend.
In the meantime I will still use my old Cougar SV2 which still does the job well.

Attached screen shot from manual. Stiffens chassis flex and five more steering so prob more suited to high grip, but I have seen it used on rubberised cork floor

Cheers, never saw that in the manual, must remember to look through it cover to cover

I see that Orlowski didnít run the laydown car in the some of the rounds of the latest EOS, did he go back to the KC for the wet conditions or is there a standup version of the Cougar being tested?

Check it's the ballstud shims, they're made out of iron so use a magnet.

Is it the ball joints or the arms?

Ive just built one for a mate. I found the arms are tight around the inner hinge pins, a moulding issue, and the "C" hubs are tight once the clip is fitted.

I just got a craft knife into the recesses at the bulkhead where the arms fit in, just a little scrape and everything moved freely

It's definitely the ball joints. as soon as they tighten they bind when they are loose it's all free
Basically if you sit the car down on the table no wheels on
The arms hinge up and down perfect
if the arms go any lower than the hinge pins it binds

I had already cleaned the bulk head out with a knife to fit the arms its not that

I'll finish the build and have another mess with it 👍🏻

Yes I have noticed some movement when the differential is fitted into the transmission housing. I have followed the instructions and used one shim on each side of the diff and fitted the bearings into the eccentric housings but once fitted to the transmission housing there is about 1.5 - 2mm of side ways movement.
I have two spare shims of the same size which were in a different pack, I don't know what these are for?

It's only when using the gear diff, it seems the bearings are a bit loose on the gear diff, just put the ball diff in and its fine

The manual addendum says to fit the 4 shims.
