If you are running foam tires you will need a front diff, the stiffer 2.5mm lower chassis, springs in the 30-33lb range for the front and 17-25lb range in the rear and the appropriate foam tires use by the locals.[/QUOTE]
thanks for the info some of us do use oneways and run faster times than with a diff , but i plan to have all diff, spool, oneway

for spare parts, i plan on ordering 3 sets of front arms, 2 sets of rear arms,( i suffer from that strange malady of can't keep my car off the boards ), 2 sets of 4 degree castor blockes, 2 sets or rear hub carriers, and 2 each 114 th, 116 th, and 118 th 64 pitch spur gears. i dont like tape, so i am going to order a battery brace. that should take care of me for a while, and also other schuey drivers in our area. i am also getting some tires, rp-30's, and rp-36's. i would rather have the spare parts and not need them, then need them and not have them. the biggest must have on the whole list tho is a P-DUB bumper. with that bumper, i hopefully won't need all the parts that i am getting.

Quick question for PW or Adrian

On the Schumacher site, there is a "C/F battery strap & Alloy post"-U2985 listed under the Mi3 chassis parts list. But the picture next to it appears to be of the old battery strap from the Mission and Mi2. Is that just an old picture, because the post holes on those cars were offset, the post holes on the Mi3(from the pics I've seen) are in line with each other, which would mean the strap in that picture wouldn't work.

Or am I thinking of something wrong?

That must be a mistake on the Mi3 list. The correct part number is U3222

Okay, just making sure before I jump on it!

And now that I have the part# for the correct one, I'll have my LHS add it to the list of stuff they've already backordered for me with you guys.

Is it me or is the only difference between the Mi3 shocks and the Mi2 EC shocks the small hole in the side of the cap?

These Mi3 shocks were even easier to fill than the EC version, got them just right first time

The Mi3 shocks also have a rubber O-ring in the shock collar. No more loosey Goosey!!

Depending on track conditions and setup, stiffer front springs can actually give you more steering at times. If the front is too soft, the car will just roll over and "dump" onto the outside front tires. A stiffer front spring will actually push the outside front tire into the track harder under hard turn in and yield more traction.
