Someone posted some vid from Reedy on the main Reedy race thread...

Anyone doubting that the Mi3 was dialed should check that vid out. Weylin's car looked awesome he just had some bad luck. Scotty even comments at one point during the vid that Weylin was the fastest car on the track.


Good job to all the Schu peeps who raced at Reedy.

You right...wow...those 19t guys were running like the 2004 Reedy mod motors....and that Mi3 took some good hits...there are some very dirty drivers out there...that sucks. Weylin drove with class and didnt get down to their low life levels, though. That's great to see and someone should complain about those dirty drivers...something has to be done...

Take a look at the pic of my car in the sweeper a few posts up from your origional pic to see how I mounted mine. I think I got sh!t from everyone on how far back it was lol. I mount it back for the cool look, and then trim it pretty small to try to keep the downforce close to stock. Basically my body went through tech like a breeze with how low the wing was.

4. Put on setup station to check camber and toe.
5. Take off setup station and put on tires.
6. Check tweak on a tweak station or by lifting one end at a time. Don't adjust by droop screws. You've already made sure the droop is equal on both sides. Use your shock collars. If you have to have too much of a difference in your preload, double check your droop settings and that the chassis is flat.
Camber should always come before droop to make sure the tires are all at the same angle when lifting the car up if that's your method of droop.

Thanks for the great paint jobs Ray, only ended up using 1 body at the race.. Let me know if you come up with a cool name for your paint business in the meantime so I can update the right people

I usually make sure the camber is very close with a camber gauge first before I do the droop but that can be off with the slight bend that seems to be in most pre mount tires. I use the setup station to make sure they're dead on.

BTW- I still think you could have done a 12.4 with headlights.

I guess Dale from Protoform agrees with you guys too. RCCA wanted to shoot some photos of my body but A-Lo had to donate some headlight stickers before Dale would let them shoot the body lol. I am guessing 12.8 if I would have run them during the race though.

Did anyone try the DNA asphalt at the Reedy race? I really like mine on my MI2 EC and now on my MI3. It has really good steering and overall traction.

Good Day

Do you guys put lube in your front cvd's ? (if so which one?), i find if i run them try i have small iron fillings on the inside bearings where the axle rubs the cvd cup.

Also i used to use Tribo Power Matrix as a bearing and bushing lube, and found it the best to use for this purpose, i can no longer get a hold of it, what alternatives could i use, Something that is found in everyday hardware stores and is just as good, either reel oil, gun oil, valve oil ? for bearings and bushings?

Thanks alot guys.

I agree, you could have seen where you were going when it got dark. JK.
You can call it Pound It Racing. Bodies, motors, and really bad setups. I'm working on that.

There was only 1 DNA 2 in the entire field - he made the B with it in Spec.....
