Picture of Make your own Mini-LST Sway Bars
Here is a quick and simple way to save a few bucks to make your own Mini-LST sway bars. This can also be used to make sway bars for other rc's also.

Things you will need:

Coat hanger (some type of rod that will work)
Needle Nose Pliers
Piece of scrap plastic (I used an old plastic license plate that was pretty thick, an old broken mini-t chassis or something of that thickness will work)
Collars (prevents the bar from coming out, isn't a must, but will help and very cheap)
Screws (If you have a spare set for your rc, than they'll work just fine)
Marker
