Quick question guys...

Besides appearance, is there any advantage/disadvantage to using stainless steel screws instead of the standard kit screws?

I use stainless in every car I build. They look better and don't rust. They are a little softer than the steel but if you have a good set of allen drivers then no worries. (Cheap Plug....the schuie ones are excllent!)

Sorry. I was hoping it'd get people staring/drooling at it instead of stressing.

The Novak switch is for the fans. It's on top of the black Keyence switch. I'm chomping at the bit to get to the track Saturday for some more testing.

Got a chance to run my Mi3 today at SoCal and work on a setup a bit, car is extremely planted and stable, easy to drive. Unfortunately SoCal requires a car that pratically does donuts it has so much steering, so I'm working on that setup for you SoCal guys now. (And I hear the ROAR nats track will have similar traction, so hopefully anyone attending that race will be able to utilize this setup too.)

For the other 99.9% of tracks, the car should work fine right out of the box!

Our indoor asphalt track sounds like your track. We have alot of traction.
