A simple mod to reduce the rear roll to acceptable, at least to me, levels. Keeps it planted on hard surfaces.

Take a fiberglass O-plate and do a little snipping and sanding to make sure the sides will clear the batteries. The length of the legs will affect the amount of roll reduction, experiment away.

Simply slip it between the Diamond bar and the bottom chassis. If this lowers your car, check and see if you have squished the diamond bar center srews too much. If so, back off on the screws slightly. The O-plate is about the same thickness as the o-rings under slight compression.

That white stuff on the upper leg is a result of a Dremel sanding drum slip. I know that none of you have ever done that!!

Presto, O-plate technology for the Pro-Z!!

Note the reduced rear roll.....................translates into planted!!

Give it a try and let me know what you think. It works well on the concrete track.

BTW, if your really frugal, you may be able to use the scrap half of the O-plate and make a shorter version. Your screw holes will have to be adjusted to get it right. Don't know, just a thought.

For those of you weak in the heart when it comes to sawing sanding and snipping, let Mini-Z know and he might be able to have some made through that infamous Zero-Products label. Zero-man is always looking for something new............
