With both of our 30 hp Stanley cars, they were prone to start hopping down the road at higher speeds due to engines being out of balance. Our 1916 Mt Wagon didn't have too much of a balance problem but the bouncing was still there starting at about 55 mph. Our 1911 model 85 7 passenger touring would start bouncing at about 45 mph and it got worse the faster we went. I installed the 30 HP additional counterweights made by REMPCO of Cadillac, Michigan and they are fantastic. The installation was easy as dropping your Stanley's engine cover. So far, I haven't had either of the 30 hp Stanleys much over 60 mph, but they both are now gliding along without any engine balance vibrations. They are now cruising along something like: "as smooth as silk".
