Talking

The MI3 seems to use a similar suspension set up as what I'm used to on my Xray T2's...however, it seems to have double suspension mounts which are connected somehow. What are their function and what and how can be adjusted?

Some of us (Team Drivers) who are going to the Reedy Race have received cars in order to get some time on the track with them before one of the biggest races of the year. I guess you could call them pre-production since they were shipped before all of the rest of the kits were packaged and before the parts order was even sent. But I don't think there's really anything different between the cars we've received and the kits that will be hitting everyone else's door soon.

As for the suspension blocks. They're basically a 2 part pivot block. What it allows is infinite adjustment of toe, track width, pro/anti squat, kick up, anti dive, etc. All without putting any unnecessary side load and stress on the hinge pins.

Sorry bro. Not trying to make you jealous. Just trying to keep people excited about the car. All but done now. Just need to set ride height, droop, etc... throw a coat of paint on a body and mount it up. Can't wait for practice this Saturday.

Hey Jon: Is there a motor under all those fans!

I noticed that you have the antenna mount up in the intended spot, are you actually planning on using it there? If so, how are you routing your antenna to it. Right under the servo horn?

Jon uses DSM so I'm thinking he is just using the mount as the locknut
