So people were having the pins just break without hitting anything. (The new CVD's that are available have been revised and this isn't an issue any longer.) I had one stock CVD break the whole time I've been running the EC. I just tighten the set screw down enough to hold everything.

As for the spool being hard on the front end, yes it is. That's what the blades are for. Blades wear out fast on the EC with a spool. But as long as they're replaced before they're dead, there won't be any issues. The new spool will have a thicker out drive so the surface where it contacts the blade won't be so sharp. This should make the blades last much longer.

Thanks for the reply.

The Mi3's you have seen are a prototype and an early Pre Production car that had a lot of proto parts on it so we could have a complete car at Nuremburg.

There are two diffrences in the Mi3's you have seen and what will be on the final Mi3 that make it a lot tougher in this respect than other cars on the market.
So are any of the team guys using the final version yet, or is it still pre-production units for them too?

Default Alloy pivot blocks on Mi2EC

Hi! I just installed the U2742 alloy pivot blocks in the rear of my Mi2EC and according to my setup tools, one wheel is at 3 deg toe in and the other is 2 deg toe in. Anyone know why? Thanks!

Yeah, my car was awesome. Didn't even change the setup from last year. Just knocked the dust off and threw it on the track. The shocks didn't even leak after being on the shelf for 6 months. The diff is still smooth too.

Only with that 3.5 that blew up. My 7x1 owned your 4.5. That motor is crazy fast. Too bad there is no more DC motorsports.

Just think about the beating you will receive once I get my Mi3. I hope soon.

You have a dialed set up and I was testing one. It's game on when I hit my set up. You wouldn't have stood a chance on the rug though.
