Has any one seen these?
Must have just recently been added to the Schumacher site.
It looks to me like they are a factory Schu part. Any body have any info?

Wish I knew these were coming when I ordered my CX steel drive shafts last week.

Look in the forsale section - there were at least 2 Mi4LP's w/ parts, etc. Mi1 is so cheap as it is from A Main I would just buy new. You can also get a CX from them for $284.99

Don't see why not. My MI3.5 was darned good. Some commonality in parts between MI3 and 4 and as far as I can tell parts shouldn't be a major issue. BTW, I believe the Exotek Lipo chassis conversion for the 3 is still available from the UK distributor for Exotek.

Mi3 should be plenty fast. I did one race during summer with mate's Mi3.5 with S1 chassis in 17.5T motor and I won the race comfortably against other newest chassis - it's mainly down to driving skill and this car shouldn't hold you back really. You just have to keep it in good condition.

I hear mixed opinions on the flex c-hub's compared to the cf hard ones,
whats the go do the flex ones make car more aggressive or more docile?

I felt like flex ones made my car more aggresive.

How are you guys chancing your set-ups w/long top deck? Or are you
Changed from standard (LP) top deck and 2,4mm trans links to the long top deck, and lost a some rear grip. Didnīt have to time change my set-up, have to get back to it.

I have noticed that many of the pros have cut the rear mounting ears off of their servo, looks like mostly to make more room for electronics mounting.

How many of us average Joes have done the same thing?

I currently have the Schumacher servo saver on both of my Mi4LPs, they are working ok, but seem very floppy, and wiggle around alot, who else is still using these servo savers? I have tried an Associated and a Kimborough, one seemed to small and did not have enough travel and the Kimborough I tried was the big one they make and did not fit without shimming the servo way up off the chassis. Any one have any suggestions for a good servo saver?

What is the preference with most of you? Driveline in option 1 or 2?
1 being the spur mounted on the "passenger" side of the chassis
2 being the spur on the "drivers" side.
Currently my cars both have option 1. I have noticed that to be able to use option 1 my pinion is way out on the end of the motor shaft even when the motor is as far as I can get it inboard. I have also noticed that the position of my pinion causes the set screw to come very close to the belt, could it cause any belt damage as they are spinning in opposite directions?

I guess the poor rear grip was more due to chancing track conditions and possibly increased front grip.

Anyone had luck sealing the Spec-R gear diff? I have put Greenslime on the o-rings, and even the gasket on the diff case.
