Default Anyone interested in a trade?

Looking for 2.5 mm upper and lower deck. I'm willing to give up my upper and lower 2.0 mm deck.

Based in Canada.

Cheers.

Edward.

Bump.

Let's keep the Mi4 discussion in here.

Jet Hobby in Hong Kong has the CX in stock. I'm tempted to grab one while I'm here on vacation...

CX went together very nicely. Only a couple of hiccups.... they packed 1x wrong ball stud for the rear suspension arm assembly, and 1x screw was a little too long (2mm). No stress as I had the parts lying around from other Schuie cars. Wish they would include U3704 as part of the kit, as the steel thrust bearings are quite prone to failure.

All ready to go, just have to wait till Wednesday night to get it dialed.

I have bought a couple more s/h Mi4LPs which some are selling as they now have the CX, so now I have my main 13.5 car (which qualified 2nd and came 1st last time out on slippery damp track), another to be set up with 21.5 to see how fast one can go (so I can set the rules properly for this new class), and another set up with HPI 15T Firebolt for GF to use (should be similar speed to 21.5).
May even buy more for use as wet weather cars?

depends on track size, ESC, Motor etc

I'm running a 13.5 X12 with a Tekin Pro on an outdoor track with 155ft main straight, and have found 8.05:1 to work best, while others with different motor/esc run closer to 6.5:1, and those on zero timing run at 4.2:1.
So we need more detail

I'm running Ballistic 13.5 with MMP speedo in cheat mode and Orca 17.5 with Vritra TC spec speedo in turbo mode on a 255ft main straight asphalt outdoors.

Larger spur. It makes it easier to get the higher FDRs needed when running boost/supercharger.

Hi! New to the Mi4 (and all touring cars), could someone clear me on a couple of things:

1) what are the differences between adding spacers under the camber link or under the ball stud?

2) when adding spacers under the ball studs on the steering housing am I lessening the Ackerman effect?

I thought the roll centre was adjusted by adding/removing spacers under the pivot blocks?
