I think the sway bars are made mainly for racing.

If you're rock crawling with your Revo than don't put sway bars. For anything else, sway bars are great to help your Revo handle better. I have been running with sway bars for a year and would not run my Revo without them. I ran home made versions of sway bars at first, then got the Tekno ones. They work well but the bars are too short and suffer from metal fatigue soon after you start to use them. The Traxxas sway bar system is better and it's been track tested for months by the Traxxas top drivers.

I just installed the Traxxas sway bar kit in my Revo a couple days ago and I can't wait to try it out (darn snow anyway). They are, of course, more race orientated but I can see the benefits bashers (me being one of them) will get from them, too. My opinion is try them...what have you got to loose except maybe $30?
