A simple test: set-up your ride for asphalt rubber tire racing. make sure its a set up tha'ts working Ok. it doesnt have to be perfect...then take 63mm foam tires, and replace the rubber with foams. Then take it for a few rounds and see the difference- check your times, too. You'll see what we mean! Then reverse the process...you'll notice that with rubber tires the car just doesnt feel good...it'll seem like its not set up right...the times will tell truth.

Well don't forget that your losing an awful lot of weight when you switch from rubber to foam. Even full height foams weigh a good bit less that rubber tires. That right there will make the car feel better and handle better.

Wow, today was a bit of a bummer. I was expecting to hear some kind of good news today. Kits showing up in shops in the UK, parts going up on the USA site...something.

I guess all our hopes roll over to next week.

Sup guys, the car is running really good this weekend! Trying different setups every time on the track and ended the day with 3 out of 3 wins (Reedy Race format). We have 3 more runs tomorrow so will try more setup ideas

Mi3 updates should come Monday

Hey PW. I replace my o-rings and went 5wt thicker and the car was really good all day. It never got hot though. Started raining right after the mains. I TQ'd by 6 seconds and won by a lap though.
