cheers guys,

If the track is smoother you can more than likely change the ride height to 5mm front and 5.5 rear. Change your gearing and see what the car does. I find once I have a pretty good setup on one asphalt track it puts me pretty close at all the other asphalt tracks I go to.

I dont know, MI2 was alright, but MI3, now that was pretty awesome, though it sucks that felicity had to die so early on. How she dies was pretty whicked-in a dark kind of way.... but I dont know about any Dremels being used, though there were those cool explosives with electro magnets on them.

What are we talking about?? I'm easily confused.

Default Roll Center ?

Adrian I'm trying your suspension setup you posted awhile back and have a question on it. In the front you have 2.75mm roll center, does this include the riser plate under the suspension arm as part of you total roll center height?

If you leave the suspension riser and add 2.75mm roll center to that the suspension arm hits the bottom of the steering arm. I'm going to keep building but go with 2.75 overall counting the suspension riser plate.

OR if anyone else tried this setup and can help that would be cool as well.

Thanks
Brian

hey guys, just had a quick question...i own a Mi2 with the original shocks, the collars on those shocks are prone to moving and not staying set, just wondering if the collars from the newer Mi2 EC shocks are a bit better in having an o-ring inside them keeping them set?

Actually no. The collars on the EC shocks are very loose. I use JRXS collars since they match the shock body. You can also get TRF or HPI/Hot Bodies. All of them have o-rings and fit just fine.

I just put a thin coating of medium CA on the inside of my stock EC collars and they've been great. On my other race car I have tamiya collars off a set of tamiya shocks that work just as well, but they're plastic so there's more friction in them without any CA. Lots of people run the HPI ones because they work great and are purple . But if you want to save a little bit of money you can use a small amount of CA to tighten the stock ones up. Remember... CA is the duct tape of RC .
