I thought it was strange that AMain removed the Mi4LP kits from their site, and they were out of stock at Schumacher UK.

I wonder if it's basically what's on Grainger's car up above.

I have a local supported driver going to give me direction and help. But would like to collect as much information to help me learn.
I suggest you, to test with 2.5 mm top deck, and with 2.5 mm chassis inclusive, i donīt like to much, but work very well.
You can put more shims in camber links, 2 mm front underbraket, and 0 rear.
HPI soft srpings, blue - silver, with good oil 45-50 real WT.
And 1 mm longer rear, 3 mm front rear arms, cure the rear problem.
The new steering, is smooth, for me best from the old one, but i see in the new car, go with the old, and more UK drivers too, i like the new steering but the setup need a litle mods.

Greetings, Luis C.

Chris prefers old steering system over new one so he will stick with that even if the car will have different steering system. From what I heard most drivers preferred new one over old one.

No, but now I have 2 Mi4s (1 an LP) and I would like a couple for spares as well...
Want some spares because it would not be possible to switch back and forth between the 2 systems in a day because I have shoe-goo'd the servo to the chassis.

Anyone have a full set (front and rear) of aluminum hinge pin blocks they'd like to part with cheap? New or used in good shape.

Just read the review for Mi4LP from couple months old RC car action, is street price really $480?

Medium flex compound a-arms... interesting

Stormer is still around $450, I think. A-Main was down to $399 before they took them down. I think mine was around $430 in Hong Kong with some shrewd bargaining from my wife's mom.

There's a lot of them around used for $300 or less with spares, though.

What are you referring to about the a-arms? The Mi4LP comes with CF ones.

tamale - countersunk and black anodized. however, not cheap. they would come with tool steel hingepins as well due to the nature of the design.

Is anyone running a ballistic? I just got a 25.5, and the spinny ring around the can doesn't seem like it's going to cooperate well with the motor clamp.

Mount a little on, and a little off the ring.
