It's probably easier to sell the transition from one car to another to the wife as well

Well boys...I ran a few packs on the MI3 today and the car already had the best times I have had with any car w/ rubber tires and mod motors...It was the fastest car on the track...and it was so easy to handle...its deadly quiet, like turnning on a honda civic and letting it iddle....it barely makes a noise, and sometimes you might think its actually , off...

However, I did have an issue with the diff getting loose. After aboout the 2nd pack, it just began to get loose. I had to retighten/reset about 3 times, and it would get loose again after a few laps...this happened contnuesly and got really anoying...I got so tired of the loose diff screw that I just rebuild it by flipping over the diff rings, and using the "un-used" side and re-assembled. After that I ran for another pack(8 mins.) and had no issues...anyone know what could have gone wrong? Why would it keep getting loose like that?

After seeing the TC5 this weekend I thought it was a nice car but not as nice as the MI3.

That is more than likely true. The other good thing about the guy running the TC5 is he now owes me some food for the beat down I gave him.

Sounds like you didn't have the locking set screw tightened up or maybe you need to put a little thread lock on it.

The nice thing about the TC5 is if your having a REALLY bad day, you can hang yourself off the TC5's topdeck. Its WAY up there!

Just kidding, Teach's TC5 looked really good for the 1st time out, but he didnt want any of the Mi3

First of all, how do you have 4 pts in your trader rating, when an 1hr ago you had 3!? You must have sold your Type R already! I followed the instructions, but I guess it needs some lock-tite on the set screw...instructions didn't seem to indicate that...anyways, it seems to be good now, but its something I'll keep an eye on
