I just have it nearly memorized by this point because I still own a Tamiya and a lot of people here ask about the Yellows.

If traction is fairly good you might try my setup from the Reedy Race, it should have enough steering to get around a tight track. And if you should need more, just throw in a 1 way.

Yes, I mean sanding the rings. I usually use the same rings 4 or 5 times before I replace them. It depends. If I'm having trouble with a diff, I'll just replace everything to eliminate any variables. Outdrives included.

Evening people, just thought I'd file a small report since I haven't checked in for a while.

I took the old EC out for a spin last weekend for the first time this summer only to be amazed yet again by the performance of the car. Even though I was only running a 4.5T with 5 cells and a GM Genuis 80, the acceleration and corner speeds were out of the roof even though the car was seriously overweight at 1440g.

Only problem was really mid-corner steering whilst the on-power steering was really on top of things. I can imagine the Mi3 being a lot better when it comes to general consistency through corners, I feel the EC is a bit raw at times.

In the end I actually came within one tenth of my personal record even though the track had a lot less grip this time around.

What's the biggest difference when it comes to balance and steering between the Mi3 and the EC?

Strap a dominican plantain on your EC and try to run it...then run it again with out the plantain...much better with the plaintain or with out? Probably with out it, right? Well, that's how good the Mi3 is compared to yesterday's generation of cars...
