I live in Australia and no one stocks spares for the MI3 here. What spares would you guys suggest to get for the MI3. ie what if anything is prone to breaking on the new car.

Cheers Andrew

I've run the car for a couple of weeks now and it' been great. The parts i would carry are the normal stuff, arms ,c-hubs and steering blocks. The only other things that i changed was i went for the steel drive shafts in the front

Kevin.....the car has been great on carpet rubber tires. It seems like everytime Im out with it I go faster with out putting on fresh tires. I have had the same set of RP30's on my car for about an easy 25+ packs and each time Im out the car gets faster. The car is very smooth and snappy off the line.

U2741 Alloy Rear Hub Carriers; purple - Mi-2 EC & Mi-3 $39.99

I would not personally suggest them. If you hit something hard enough you could potentially bend one and not even know it. Then you would be chasing a set-up and wondering what the heck is wrong with your car. Not that I know form experience or anything.

This is exactly why we don't use aluminum suspension parts. Just get the plastic ones. They're a lot cheaper. The hit that will break a plastic one will probably bend an aluminum one too and you'll have to replace it anyway. That is if you can figure out why your car is screwing itself into the ground all of a sudden.

Tim and Jon K, thanks for the input...what about: For the MI3- the steering knuckles and caster blocks are the same as the Mi2EC? I'm trying to order MI3 knuckles and caster blocks but dont seem them for the MI3, only for the Mi2EC, so i wonder if they share the same parts?

Try clearing out your cookies. Sometimes that helps. After you clear out your cookies. Start the order over again. If you have too many temp. internet files it sometimes will do strange things. Cant really explain why it does that! If not give me a call.
