We started hearing reports of dogbone pin failures last week in the UK. I talke to Schumacher UK and there will new dogbones on the way to the US as of next week.

If you have a problem give Shu USA a call and we will get new drive shafts out to you at no charge as soon as they come in.

Actually, I don't think it was in the manual itself. I think it was on a little sheet of paper that was inside one of the bags with the steering equipment.

If you look at your extra stuff from the build, you'll find the two black plastic washers your supposed to use.

dawg beat me to the pic, but I had taken the pic already, so here it is.

You'll notice an extra screw, thats for the alternate antenna position I used.

Also note the Schumacher colored battery tape.

Finally got to run my new MI3 with my new radio (no more radio problems) and man it was awesome. 1st pack I ran at my local asphalt track I was a tenth slower than my EC and by the 2nd pack as was running the same times but was more consistant overall. Running a combination of the PW setup and my own settings from what I learned from my EC. Great 1st day on the car. Everything was flawlessly. I didn't have to push the car very hard to run the same times as my EC. The can fine tune the MI3 just a touch at a time when I get it really close. I'm very impressed with my car.

I was down to 11.9's on my 2nd pack. It is a fine line to go from 12.7's to even 12.3's and to get 12.0 and 119's and under is a really fine area of grip and not traction rolling. My car make almost no noise other than the belts. The tires barely make a sound when going around the corners.

Great. The car was awesome and the new 3PK Super with the HRX/Synthesized setup was flawless. It was a great day. The car will just get better. I will say alot of stuff I did on my EC worked when I tried it on my MI3.

The Mi3 and the latest Mi2EC's use the same driveshafts. Talk to Schu UK and they will fix you up
