Howard.....When the sheets say Riser +1mm that is 3mm total. The riser plates are 2mm so thats another 1mm on top of that so yes what you said is right. The rear toe I can explain that in person next time I see you....just use the stock parts and then I will show you how to get other deg of toe in. I think the rubber chassis has 2.5 deg of toe built in and the foam chassis has 1.5 deg of toe built in to the chassis. After that you need to use some other parts to change the toe.

Matt D.....Thats awesome man good to see you with a new set of "Shues". See you out at the track.....

Thanks KK....give me a week or so to build 2 Mi2 first...and I have to go over to Nexus's house and KILL him cause the pivot block that he gave me has all kind of lenght....I bet some of them are from the old Mi2 cause they are a lot LONGER then the 1 I have on my EC and my left one are longer then the right one...very confusing.

HL.....sounds like you might have old parts mixxed in with new stuff. On the EC all the mounts are the same size. If you have some that are longer they are from the old car or the offroad car. You can use them but just stick with the stock parts.

Ok...that explained why I have -3 degree toe in on the rubber chassis, and Nexus told me that is the special ASIAN team edition pivot blocks....

I need to stop by his house and give him a late trick or treat.....

No new setups that I know of due to many people switching over to foams (.... lol), but my setup from vegas will still be fast .

Any way to get less rear toe in? Any other blocks that will get me to 1.5 or 1 degree of rear toe in? Would be cool to have different rear toe blocks to change this easily.

You can get the plastic pivot blocks from the Mi2. Install them with the ridge on the outside and that'll give you 1.5 and with the ridge to the inside, that'll give you 3. The pin location on the plastic blocks is also .5mm higher than the alloy ones so you'll need to adjust to make sure you get the right roll center.

Just out of curiosity do you need a thicker chassis for the foam MI2 EC?
