Why not try your existing set up? It looks really good. Just make small changes as you see fit

Got LP myself yesterday - looks very good. Now I just think that Schumacher needs to do anodising in CatSX stylee Black with silver edges - will be very outstanding car then.

Ok guys I have a Spare MI3 Chassis that have been sitting around as my back up. I want an MI4 but I just can't shell out extra cash at this time. So here's my question I know all suspension parts, Diff Parts is the same So can you guys list the parts that I need to convert my MI3 to MI4...???

I know You need the chassis Top/Bottom and bulkheads, shock towers F/R But most suspesion parts, Diffs/Spool from your Mi3 can be use but What else.

technically, you don't need the short arms, medium blocks, and wider hexes that the LP now comes with, but i think the point was well illustrated. the new shock towers/caps probably aren't essential, either, but if you're trying duplicate a published setup things like that can matter.

personally, i think the mi3 is an awesome car. i like that it's lower looking than the 4. bolt on the new short arms and plastic blocks to an mi3/.5 to lighten it up and i'd bet it's a weapon.
