Ok i got to run at the brand new Horsham yesterday, and have a decent starter setup for foam now, it would use some tweaking still, but its ballpark.

Yep, plastic block held up fine, didn't even wollow out the block. Took a good shot, t-boned, pushed the battery into the pinion gear and pushed the pinion off the spur(didn't move the motor in the clamp at all)......the battery went in so far it knocked the speed control and receiver loose on the other side.

Well, race was going well until the above post....... Qualified 5th in 13.5 A-main, two seconds off TQ, A-main field seperated by about 6 seconds. My car was right there, but ended too quickly in the main. We had a light rain right before the main.....I got it a little loose off a corner.....got tapped around.....then t-boned ending my day. That's racing as they say, i'm real happy with the Mi4, the car is so easy to drive.lol

Well I got my car back. Had to throw it together to go play at the track yesterday. So I havent had a chance to swap the purple parts to black. I will do that some other time lol. Thanks Mike and Matt Owen for the anodizing!

And yes, I know my spur is stripped. Motored Sawyer, and slammed the brakes so I wouldnt smash into his car It sure stops fast! And if anyone is looking for a new radio. 4PK is AMAZING! I tried to get the wrap to match my body, it kinda worked lol.
