after looking at the pics of this car, i had said that these guys got it right, this time. now i am positive of that.
After seeing this car in action last weekend, let me say...........This car is the sickness FO RIZZLE

cheers all.
Unfortunately not; the pin length will be different for the Mi3 and the Ti-pins for the Mi2EC have been discontinued.

I don't have the link here at home, but I'm sure someone might have something. I will try and post a link tomorrow when I get to work.

This is the best site I've ever seen for learning about vehicle dynamics. I still refer back to it from time to time.

cheers,
Titanium is becoming more and more expensive by day so with the Mi2EC coming to a close soon, we can't justify buying the required minimums for a discontinued car.

Actually most of the team drivers in the US are running the spring steel pins anyway for durability

No..so it will be a few years before he can see you leaning against your favorite corner street light in your black dress, blond wig and stilletto heels.

I think that Seaball has the proto car at the ROAR carpet nats this weekend....but he would only be able to race it in 19t if he did use it per ROAR rules.

Adam Rogers, Chris Ashton amd Andy Wallis are testing preproduction cars in the UK now. One is on the way to PW for testing.

Like Kevin said Chris Goetz has the prototype Mi3 in Cleveland right now. So far Chris is very fast on foams with the Mi3. He's won a few club races with it in Stock and 19T and has had extremely positive reports on how its running. It is way easier to drive and has way more conerspeed on foam tires than his Mi2 Foam Spec or Mi2 Seaball Special.
