West Coast Shoot Out. There are a few pics posted in the WCSO thread on www.rcracing.com No pics of BIG DADDY though.


Harsh- Thanks for the kind words. I just thought of something that I could have tried yesterday so I will try it this coming weekend.

Default Schui Springs

Anyone of you know, why Teemu uses Asso silver springs instead of the white
Schui springs?

Thanks a lot!

Default Change of car

Thanks for your quick reply. As i have recently changed from Yokomo BD to the new EC i have to admit i am very much impressed with the car.

The amount of front steering is incredible. I am racing at a quite good national level here in Austria, Europe.

Surprisingly the "touch" of the Schumacher white springs - once mounted, together with the geometry of the car feels rather hard - compared to other standard setup cars like the Hotbodies, Xrays, Yokomos etc....

I was racing the car for the first time last weekend, first with a one-way, afterwards I used the standard spool - a lot easier to drive. Once the tires where overheating I had problems with the stability of the rear of the car - kept breaking out.

I think I will have to use stiffer sway bars in the front.

Is there a possibility to add more toe in at the rear of the car? I couldn┤t figure it out from the included manual.

All the best

Unfortunately there's no way to alter the rear toe with the blocks the car comes with. You can get the old plastic pivot blocks from the original Mi2. Those will give you either 1.5║ or 3║ depending on which way you install them. The hinge pin hole is also .5mm higher on them so if you do get them, you'll need to shim them .5mm lower than the alloy blocks to keep the same roll center.
