There is a Pro Spring Kit available (U2822) or you can buy one pair of springs at a time. You can use springs from most other cars easily. We use XRay springs, AE springs, HPI, and more. Each companies springs are a little different and some work better in some situations than others.

As for the quality and finish of the car, it's very good. Very little hand fitting is ever needed if at all. The car it very easy to build and easy to work on. The shocks are just as good, if not better than the TRF ones we were all using on the Mi2 before the EC came out.

The new shocks are awesome. Some of the best around. TRF shocks where/are the standard it seems to which all shocks are judged on and these new Schumacher ones are right their. Very smooth and as simple as any shock to build.

Like Jon said the MI2 EC requires no real hand fitting. No more than any high end car out at this time.

Very easy. Shims under the pivot blocks. You pretty much have an infinite amount of adjustment this way. Wheelbase adjustments are done with the quick clips so there's no pulling screws out and changing shims. Like I said, it's very easy to work on and adjust.

Oh you know, the usual... pissing people off because my car is so fast. Then when I tell them they will be faster with an EC they just say it's me and not the car.... . Maybe if I were worse people would actually buy my car .

Oh yeah, that and flying helicopters .

I had LASIK surgury last Friday so I get to test out my new 20/15 vision tomorrow. Not 100% healed yet but should be good enough to lay the smack down.
