I don't have all of the PW setup. I will try the whole setup next time I go on Sat. I will get the radio issue fixed next time out and then setting the car up will begin. Overall the car is very nice and it has everything adjustment wise I need to dial it in. It really is alot different than my EC thats for sure. THe other thing is I have had 11 months to make my EC work so well so I can't expect my MI3 to be perfect in in 2 or 3 packs.

Okay, I got a question.

While sitting here examining the car, I realized that both universals on the left side(when viewed from the rear) of my car have a lot more side-to-side play than both the ones on the right side of the car. I mean, when I shift the axles in/out, theres a noticable difference.

So heres my question...well two questions really. How could this happen? I mean I went bearing-spacer-bearing on all four corners just like the manual said. The other question is....Is there some kind of thin shims that I can put between the universal and the inner bearing(or between the outter bearing and hex adapter) to remove some of the play on the left side, and get it closer to the right side. I'd probably need shims in the .1mm-.2mm size to get it right. And they'd need to have an internal diameter big enough to fit over the axles, but small enough to not bind tnd bearing.

Any ideas?

IGNORE the last post unless you had the same "duhhh..." moment I did.

I took the wheels off, did an examination and realized that I had installed the hex backward on both the front and back of the left side. Thats why they had more play, and why the wheel nut didn't screw on as far as the right side.

Gotta pay attention to those instructions!

what FDR are you getting with the 13.5??

with mine i got the FDR on the MI3 down to a 4.10 fdr ( 114spur/50pinion)I just had to take a little bit of the motor mount holes to slide the motor a little more. I m able to get a 51t pinion 114t spurin there but the gear mesh is a little tighter for a 4.02 FDR.

4.10fdr....4.02fdr....WOW!

I'm not aiming that low with my FDR. On our med size carpet track during the winter, I stayed right around 4.96fdr with my TA05. I found out last time out, that this is also pretty good for our med bite local parking lot track.

So with the Mi3, I wanted to get as close to that as posible. So I went with 114t/41t, which puts me pretty much smack on 5.00fdr.

Although we do have some people locally that get that low with the 13.5, I haven't tried it yet.

What does the motor feel like with that low of a FDR?

Makes sense, so thats what I plan on doing.
I have heard that some people take a old hinge pin, rough it up with sand paper. Put it throught the wishbone then keep on turning it till the other hinge pin (not roughed up) can go through it easier. I personally haven't tried it yet but i think i will once i get the kit.

I ran one pack through it and it was pretty fast!

When running the low postion on the front diff are your belts just touching back part of the steering rack? Mine is just touching the back portion ever so little.

WYD has a oneway in his car, not a spool.

Since they use the same bearings and pulley it shouldn't matter to the best of my knowledge. Height of them should be the same.
