Kev's Mi2EC this weekend with that setup was sick. Paul Lemiuex was running that day and Kev was pretty close if not right there matching him in lap times during one qualifier.

Awesome run Kevin...Now you have Euge wanting to run a his Mi2EC outside too

You, Koch, and Paul we cracking me up on the stand!

I'd be interested in any thoughts, theories or experiences on running with different castor blocks in the Mi2-EC. A while back I introduced 2 degree blocks to my car (chasing better turn in), liked what I found and have run with them ever since (at a variety of outdoor tracks). That's the primary difference between my own setup and some of those being posted here. Anybody else played with front castor?

The only time I'll put 2 caster on is if the car is traction rolling in the middle/exit of the corner. 4 caster has always had so much more on throttle steering and corner speed. At Vegas last year I had 2 degree on from my testing at home to keep the car from traction rolling, when I put the 4 degree on it picked up 2 tenths or more . If you need more turn in, try standing the front shocks up, adding rear droop, stiffer front spring (I reccomend staying with whites though), lighter oil, or lowering your front inner camber link. Basically I keep 4 degree or 6 degree occasionally on the car at all times and setup around it, I just like the way more caster handles a lot better. Try going back to 4 or even 6 and see what you think.
