i believe they are working on a 2.5mm chassis with more servo mounting options and fewer cutouts under the electronics. lowered towers will hopefully come with that chassis set for getting those parma mohawk bodies down nice and low.

ps - don't let that stop you from running the car out of the box on foam tires. it builds up plenty stiff for even the highest grip you'd ever see on foams. it really is a feat.

I'm not too worried about a thicker chassis. I've seen plenty of super stiff cars that get the slightest of tweak in them and they're pretty much undrivable. Bahh... you can keep that headache.

I like a little flex in my cars. Around here, we only get up to that "nationals level" grip on carpet, once...maybe...twice a year. The rest of the time though, its perfect level grip. Not too much...not too little.

And all the reports so far say that the kit chassis is more than good for 'club level' traction.

Within 24-48 hours there will be a lot of Mi3 owner.

It's now time for closure, it's time to let the healing process begin. To PW and Adrian I whould like to say that I'm sorry for all the internet bitchin' moaning groaning complaining and asking the same question over and over about the release of the Mi3

may the brotha recieve the light of forgiveness

I'm going to have to wait a little longer than 24-48hours(likely next week from Speedtech), so my healings going to have to wait.

That's brutal...

Anyone know if the Mi3 makes a distinct high pitch "whistle" sound with when on throttle? Alex Lopez MI3 was making that noise- that's how I knew the MI3 was on the track- that little mosquito like whinning sound...

Nope should be almost completely silent.

My car with a 19 turn in it adn 64p gears is almost silent. I ran an 8 turn last weekend a couple of times just to see how it felt with the extra power and all you could hear was the whine of the motor and the tires squealing.
