My Mi2EC was awesome yesterday. Qualified 4th and finished 2nd. We had a handful of top drivers from our area show up to our indoor asphalt track. I had a couple guys come up to and ask what I was driving. They where shock that the Schuie was that good. One qualifier my fast lap was 12.25 and my ave. lap was 12.399. What a day.
I think the Mi2EC is working this good because it knows it is soon getting replaced.

They are available as straight input-->6.0V, and also with a switch.
Nice. Looks like I will be placing an order pretty soon.

One more week to practice before Reedy. This car is just so fun. BTW Randy's car looked 'preddy' dialed.
My car is really close, I think with a Mazdaspeed 6 rather than a Mazda 6 I would have been able to hit 9 second laps lap after lap.. still trying to figure out how I hit that one 9.7 lol.

I didnt have a problem overdriving the corners, mine still had a good amount of steering. Try running only .5mm shims under the front hinge pin mounts, and on the rear 3mm on the back block and 2mm on the front block. Also I changed the shocks, drilled the pistons out to #56 and ran 45wt oil in the front, 40wt in the rear, with 1 red O-Ring under the bladder on all 4. 17lb front and 14lb rear springs.

Yeah, was already thinking 5wt heavier front oil or .5mm kick-up in the front. I thought I noticed that you had your shocks one hole out on the tower or am I wrong on that. I did notice you had blue(tamiya?) front springs, was going to ask about that. I'm sure we'll all get there one way or the other.

lol I was trying not to say Tamiya springs, but yes they were.

I am running PW's setup on everything but what I listed as the changes there, .5 less toe-in in the rear, and 1mm sweep on the front arms.

dawg, your link is much better. This unit here is much smaller than the ones I linked, and much cheaper, too.
