MIP still hasn't given a solid date on their 3 gear last I checked. (2 weeks ago).

I was told that they pulled it. Unless they can find a way to make theirs much better than AE's, they have dropped the project for now.

The billet alloy case was pretty badass.

99% bling, 1% cooling. Competing with AE's plastic case and pricing would be hard

Has anyone tried running the stock shock pistons 1.5 front and 1.6 rear? I didn't have time to get the machined pistons I needed and was curious if that would be better then the standard manual setup 1.6/1.7.. I run a indoor clay. High traction and 35/30 shock oil

Didn't try the 1.5 front, but I'm happily running 1.6 rear (and front btw.) with 32.5 (37.5 front) on high grip like astro or even carpet. Going from the 1.7 to 1.6 helped with landing bigger jumps on the hard surface.

Just like when Ae mentioned their 3 gear, I just call the company direct. Ae gave a date of Jan 5th.

I would run either 2x1.6's all the way around or 3x1.4's in the front 1.6's rear or 3x1.4's all the way around. I run 1.6's in the rear if the track is smooth and high bite but if it is medium to high with a lot of bumps and stuff I run 3x1.4's in the rear but I always run 3x1.4's in the front

Yea most people run 3x1.4's but LHS didn't have any so I'll try them out and if it doesn't work I'll put 1.6's in

Default Reedy Motor Tabs

I just finished my B5M build and went with a Reedy 17.5T motor.

Out of the factory sealed box, the motor tabs/posts have a little play in them.

Is this normal?

I just put a small zip tie around the "B" tab so there is no way it could ever touch "A" or "C".

I was told by the LHS this is normal.

Thanks!!

Sounds fishy to me......I have several Reedy motors at home (Mach 1 and 2) and don't remember any of them having noticeable play in the tabs. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but aren't all of the tabs connected to the sensor board? I would call AE and talk to them about it.

At the LHS, we opened one up and the tabs sit in a groove inside the non-conductive (forgot the word) material where they are then soldered to the stater (correct piece?).

We called Associated and the guy said they are designed this way so they dont break that solder to the stater as they would if they were completely rigid.

He also said they all vary in the degree they move, but I just wanted to get some feedback from the forum.

Thanks!!
