mick, schumacher has made some good strides with this car. you won't be disappointed. everything is simple, yet well thought out. the arms were the weak point (if you run indoors) and they just changed the mold to help with that (AND are offering the new arms in both, hard and flexible materials)..

well we will see next time at swr how fast you can go. Haha I already bought a spx and got a duo, So I'm good. I could use his set up though. I'm curious what he ended up with set up wise. My car is pretty good, it's just down to the little changes now

Assembling the Mi4 right now, and its quite a joy. Noticing things vs my TC5 that I REALLY like. 1 being the very cool diff nut cover to keep dust out.) 2 being the locking grub screw.

Just assembling it now to know how it all goes back together when I get the parts back from anodizing. The purple IS starting to grow on me though....

Looks nice, looks like you need a bit less rear camber

Playing with the diff right now and it feels sticky for some reason. Not notchy. It's very smooth though. Any ideas? IE It feels like an 8th scale diff, with 5k weight diff oil in it. I thought maybe the diff rings are rubbing the pulley if the pulley is too thick?

You've probably used to much diff grease. Then the plates and the diff pulley will stick together and create more friction.

Mine is like that too. My thoughts are too much grease or too small balls. Thick pulley would have the same result. Going to try less grease then 2.5mm balls.

SMall problem on an otherwise great car.

When I was running the Mi3 I had a problem where one of the diff side fences was actually slightly touching the diff ring.
Remoive the sides and see if it still does it.

In the end I just ran without the side fence that was causing the problem.
