Quit teasing me! Where can I get them? I'm sick of the top box of my magic bag smelling like Paragon for a month after one trip to SoCal.

I'm headed to the track this afternoon to run some laps. Need to get the car dailed in to keep up with WYD. Also need to stop driving the schuie like my 1/12th scale.

It was in the 70's earlier in the week and now is in the upper 30's with wind chill lower 30's. That's what is nice about having a indoor asphalt track to race at.

I have no tensioner on the front belt (I have the gray belt) and my tnsioner on the rear is setup so it is a loose as possible in the lowest position. I run stock and 19t like that.

Sell me on the Mi3

I am just getting back into RC, and want to do on road tourning cars. I don't know that much about touring cars so could you please state your case on why starting out with a Schumacher Mi3 would be a good choice for me.

What makes them better?

I am also considering the new Losi JRXS Type-R.

Thanks for the help......so many choices.......

Both are great cars. Both can be tuned to any track and can win with any driver on any day. I really like the fact that the Mi3 is infanantly adjustable. By adding inexpensive shims/spacers you can make adjustments and dont have to buy abunch of expensive parts to get the car right. Many cars out there are in the same price range, and still make you buy $100 or more in hop-ups.

Also do you or someone else have any pics or info on the bellcrank mod? Is it worth doing?
