I actually got to build a production kit today and found a few things that differ slightly from my preproduction. After talking with Mo he said my setup was a little on the lazy side for tight tracks.

If you need more steering from my setup try moving the ball-stud to the forward hole on the steering block. I didn't realize, but I've been running the optional steering track-rod (shorter one) and that allowed me to run the back hole on the steering block

Another change for tighter tracks is you can shorten the rear camberlink for quicker response. I used a longer rear link for my setup because of the open layout. You can also lower the front r/c or raise the rear for more steering.

It's nice to finally get some more drivers running the car as this will speed up the setup process

Less than 2 weeks

i would suggest using the setup in the manual for rubber/carpet and then go from there.

Has anyone posted the bearings & turnbuckle sizes/count yet for the MI3? If not could someone please do? What about the complete diff part#? Is there a P-Dub bumper for the car yet?

When I last talked to PW he said they will have P-dub bumpers coming soon.

I'm not sure about a complete diff assembly part number.

bearing sizes:

10x15x4mm - x4
5x10x4mm - x8
5x8x2.5mm - x3 (2 of these are for the steering bellcrank, 1 is for the layshaft pulley)
5x9x3mm - x1

turnbuckle sizes:

35mm - x4
39mm - x2
24mm - x1


Happy?

Your car definitely looked good on the track, nice piece of equipment as well, looks very well built, tons of adjustability and easy to work on!
