That's what I have on mine too, the mid-size with no holes and put a hole about 3mm from the top/center......

Can someone explain this to me...thx
Well, build it this way and tell us if you do get 2mm play by doing that? Some creative thinking and looking at the parts would perhaps reveal that the hub won't have near as much play in the caster block, so it won't actually matter much if you leave them 0.5 or 2.5mm out.
Having said that, I leave minimum play there, so it still turns freely end-to-end and doesn't bind, but I don't see a reason to leave much more... unless you want to "fine-tune" your camber link outer location this way

One of the things I had problem with was the wheelbase clips/spacers. I had no way of getting 4mm of spacers in there without severe binding, so I ended up using 3,75mm, good thing that the thin quick clips were included.

For the quick clips I just used a piece of emery cloth and just lightly sanded one of the clips on each side and they fit perfect. Took about 30 seconds to do each side. I also did this when I shortened my rear wheel base 1mm. I used a 2mm and 1mm clip in the rear of the arms and then the 1mm clip for the front I again gently sanded with emery cloth and had a perfect fit. I just took a small peice of emery cloth and keep in my tool box now.

so you did come away with something from racing at our halloween classic last year. our philosophy! look, if you can't put a qualifier together, at least hot lap 'em! nah, it's out of the way now, so that vegas will be a repeat. good to hear the car was that fast.

props to randy c for a sweet showing, and to all the schumacher drivers that represented, yo. it was fun to check in on the progress every few rounds.

Default Wing Placement

How far back should I put my wing for low-med traction out door asphalt? At the 2006 worlds, it seems lots of drivers had them as far back as possible...at the Reedy 2007 race, Reinard and others also ran it far back...I'd love find out how Weylin, Randy, PW and Alex ran theirs and who that effects their set up...thx

Running the wing farther back gives you more rear bite. In medium to low bite I run the wing back for more rear traction. If I need more steering I can move it forward. It will help the car rotate with it forward. At the Reedy we all ran the wing at the back though.

Thanks for the insight...when you say "we all" you mean MI3 team drivers or everyone at the Reedy race?

Also, would anyone know what the front and rear track width is for PW asphalt set-up? Maybe the set up sheet can be eddited to include this as well as wheel base...

Yeah, "we all" was referring to our team. I have no idea what everyone at the race was doing .
