Keep an eye on www.racing-cars.com. Mi3 parts will be posted this week. The first Mi3 parts will arrive at Schu USA this week too

More parts will arrive every week leading up to the Mi3 launch and continuing on afterwards.

On Adrian's Mi2EC setup sheet, does anyone know the lb rating of the Tamiya yellow springs? Also does anyone have a spring chart showing the different brands and there lb rating, I found one online but a lot of it wasnt correct.

I asked this back when you guys originally told us about the parts being posted, but didn't get a response. So I guess I'll giver her another go...

What type of parts are we talking about? Will it be just the Mi3 essentials like arms, etc... or will this first parts listing also include things like sway bar sets, battery strap, 64p Spurs, etc...

Thanks

Tamiya yellow is 14 lb. I use the xray spring set. Adrian's setup is a good setup to start with. RC America would have the xray spring chart

Here you go...

Tamiya tall yellows-13.33lb
Tamiya short yellows-13.99lb

If it doesn't list which one he's using, its most likely the shorts.

The yellow springs I used were whatever came with the Grey Surikarn TRF shocks back in the day. They are a little softer then Schumacher Whites.

Darkseid - Your guess is as good as mine about what is coming in. Everything is on order with Schu UK and over the next few weeks will start trickling in. I will know more once the next order arrives sometime this week.

Thanks for the help with the springs. This is the only yellow spring that tower has in stock. http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXFAD6&P=7 Wyd says he uses the talls but that is the shorts.

The yellow ones in this kit are what you want. http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXWB01&P=7 When you buy threaded Tamiya TRF shocks they always come with those yellow springs in the kit. It is very standard.

Drop me a PM with your Email address and I'll send you a spread sheet I made with true spring rates for a bunch of the spring brands.
