I drove Hayne's Mi4 after the xray challenge and that's exactly how I'd describe his car, very easy to drive even for a hack like me.

How bumpy is your track? 7mm is pretty high. I think Jdm runs 5.5 and 6 iirc. And his track is bumpy

Med flex all around will give you more traction overall. And if you run the stiff arms in the rear and med in the front you will have better rotation.

Im still debating on sending my car out to get it anoed black
I'm not sure, I want either black to be different or blue so I don't have to pay a fortune to get all the spacers done and I used to run Tamiya so EVERYTHING is blue from my power supply to to setup board and even my pit towel

Guys I want your opinion

My current setup on the rear of my MI4 is;

CF rear arms, with alloy rear hub carriers, no spacers between rear hub carrier and ball stud

Alloy toe blocks with 2mm spacers between the top and bottom blocks

Rear toe spacers are 2mm in the front and .5 in the rear

3Gr camber mount with 3mm spacers on the ball stud

white springs with 35wt, bottom shock hole outside, top is one hole in from the top

I do not run a rear swaybar!

Okay I would start with lowering your ride height to 5.5 to 6 mm in front and 6mm to 6.5 in the rear try to keep it as low as possible then lower your rollcenter front and rear start with a 2mm shim under rear block and 1mm under front hinge pin block

A blue MI4 would be pretty sick! Very different.
