Since my dirt track had the weekend off i ran my car a 1/4 mile banked aspahlt track. the only problem i had was my right front was diving pretty hard and the car had a bad push. now after looking things over the other night i found my right side front sway bar was broken would this cause any problems? thanks

On asphalt it would cause a problem, you dont need it for the dirt. Eddie

The only question you should ask about asphalt on here is, which peice of equipment would be best to tear the asphalt up and make it dirt again?

dirt is for racin!

Now I know for a fact mr.0six has been seen watching the races at a local ASPHALT track!(I was sitting next to him !)AS for the sway-bar , spring ? . you should go quite a bit stiffer on the right front on pavement , could the car have rolled far enough to put so much stress on the the bar/link/mount to snap it , did it drag the track ?

Thou shalt not smite another brother for dabba-linge in the "black art" of asphalt racing. lol but on a serious note yea the sway bar could have caused it.

There was not a single track that i could race at a couple weeks ago, and I ALMOST went tarmack racing.....

They say its SOOOOO easy, so I was gonna go find out myself.

As for the question, yeah the sway bar was your problem.
