I use the JR 8450 in my Mi2EC. I also think WYD uses the 8450 also.

Here's a tip:

If you take the alu drive shaft wheelhex and the to spacers from the old Mi2 and put it on the EC, you increase the track width by 2mm in each side. Or said in another way. You go from 190mm to 194mm.

A standard Mi2EC is 186mm wide with no spacers. The old Mi2 hexes are 1.5mm wider than the EC hexes. If you run the old axles and hexes you will have a 189mm wide car.

The only way I see your car being 194mm is if you used old Mi2 rear hubs on the EC. That would put you over 190mm in the rear.

Ok, I admit, didn't check the current track width, the 190 was just as a reference. But i'm using the standard EC axles with the old hexes. Works very well and widens the car 3-4mm.

I'm running the old axles and steel drive shafts with the EC alum hexes and my car isn't wider than 190mm. Had no problems going thru tech at the Reedy or the asphalt nats.

Very nice car. Minereally works well for me and overall pretty easy to work on. Another nice feature is this forum. Lots of guys on here that can help you out. PW and Adrian at Schumacher are very helpful.

Question: How do you build a shock with 0 rebound versus building on with full rebound?

how? I've noticed that if i build my shock and screw the cap on tightly while fully pressing the shaft into the housing that the shock has less rebound; and similarly if i screw the cap on with the shock fully extended, the shock finishes with more rebound, but how do i get 0 rebound?
