I can't tell you on the LP for sure, but the standard is 2.5 on the chassis and 2.0 on the top deck.

Thanks, that was my best guess but I couldn't find anything to back it up.

On the Schumacher forum the UK guys have said that the stock chassis is 2.0mm, with 2.5 being an option. They also said that the LP chassis feels more rigid than original 4 chassis of the same thickness, due to having less cutouts. Makes sense to me...

My car is glued, just have to watch out for cones!!!! Still messing with the RS and gearing to find the sweet spot which I think I have found. Anyone with questions do not hesistate to ask!!!
Your car looked real good this weekend, John. 17.5 was a great race as well as 13.5. This time it was my turn to play with the dots.

2.5mm with no batt cuts should be way too Stiff
so 2mm sounds cool

Hello, I had previously been looking at the top photon to possibly replace my t2 009 for my 17.5 or 13.5 tc. Well after a few weeks of research it looks as if one of the better setups would be to get a different chassis and that'd put me in the Almost $500 range. I figured I'd might as well take alook at the mi4. I'm looking for a car that out of the box performs well on carpet with rubber tires. How's the mi4 do out of the box on carpet with rubber? Any issues with lipos fitting? Any weAk parts that need to be changed from the start? I've glanced through a few pages but the internets down here right now and looking at more then a few pages on this phone is aggravating. So, any advice and insight I'd appreciate it! Thanks

Well, the new car is the Mi4 LP is made for LIPO. Brandon should be posting up his carpet set up from last weekends race at A Main Hobbies/OutBack Raceway. He said it was dialed

Lmao, Just give up because you suck

Heres my carpet set up I went to. I tried Mike H's IIC set up, and pretty much went back to most of my asphalt set up lol. Worked great! I could use a little work, but hey its a work in progress. Haha

I had been tinkering with my own setup.... but once again Lambert has the key. Goetz, try this out, it'll be worth it.

I hope the shipment of Mi4's come in soon. I want to run the new car really bad. We have the Grand Slam Race in two weeks. Seaball are you coming into Maryland for the race?
