Just got back from the hobby shop, from getting my Mi3. I have to say in the box this is the best looking kit I've ever bought. Since I just got mine from the last shipment, Does it have the revised cvd's?

They have some updated pins, but the fully revised units are still a few weeks away.

Thanks to Riegle for the help at Jackson this weekend. The MI3 is really such a geat car. The adjust are just unreal with what you can do. I think between races and practice runs I never went on the track with the same setup twice. I should have done better than I did, not the cars fault mostly driver input error. The guys that were there running the MI3 really worked well together with sharing info and such. I really look forward to our next race where I hope to put on a better showing.

Can someone elaborate on what revisions are being made to the CVD's? Apart from the pins being replaced.
Thankyou

The hole for the blade-pin is being drilled differently and then both pins will be spring-steel (flat spot added to one pin).

Just a note for anyone trying out my Reedy Race setup. It's a pretty aggressive setup that doesn't have a whole lot of traction, which is just how I like to drive my cars. I tried a couple changes this past weekend that seemed to get me more overall traction, but still had a lot of steering. The track we were running on was about the same length as the Tamiya track, but considerably tighter and had less traction. I switched out the Mazdaspeed 6 for a Mazda 6 lightweight body, I think this is where a lot of the traction came from. I also switched my tire sauce which seemed to make the car come in right away. I used the Muchmore Red Sap sauce, let it sit on the tires for about 45 minutes total, warmed it for about 8 minutes at 55c and took the warmers off about 2 minutes before hitting the track.

Hope this well help you guys out. Questions are welcomed, I dont keep too many secrets

Be careful with the Keyance mounted that way. A t-bone in the right spot will put it into setup mode. It happened to me more than once before I turned it.
