First make sure that the pivot blocks aren't trying to turn when you tighten the screw. Also, you can take the quick clips and sand them down just a touch to make them fit better without binding. But don't take off too much so you'll create too much slop.

I'm going to try running the 6 cells chassis first. I'll get a 5 cell chassis on my next order to try.

I didn't tighten mine til I had all the blocks attached to the bulkheads. I found it easier to tighten everything up once the blocks where all together and attched to the bulkheads. I would tighten one part of it at a time and check for binding. If non I went to the next part and tightened. No binding this way.

I did have to sand my shims a tad with emory cloth but not a big deal. Everything is nice and smooth with no binding.

He was asking about the EC, not the Mi3. You're right about slowly doing the ones for the Mi3 to make sure everything is pivoted properly and not binding.

I live in Australia and I was wondering where most of you guys get your parts for the MI3 from?

Also make sure you reference Adrians "Lets build an Mi3 kit" instructions - they are super helpful!

I have been running XRAY since I got back into the hobby about 5 years ago, I ran the T1 with the pillow balls before they had a c-hub front end!! Just thought it would be nice to try something new and I like the design and adjustability built into the MI3. Hopefully it will suit my driving style and it will be nice to have help from everyone at the track that are running the same car in case a spare part or two are needed. I hope to have it all dialed in by Saturday, and see how I do against you guys on the carpet.

My first weekend out on the car I had the settings all messed up and was getting used to it. But the second weekend out it was much better

Also make sure you sand down the rear arms a little where they touch the tire when compressing the shocks. If you don't, the tire will do it for you It may not rub at all on carpet but on asphalt on those high speed sweepers it will rub.

Another thing I had a tough time with was the rear arms binding up but all I had to do is sand down one of the Qwik Clips just a tad and it freed it up perfectly. Other than that the kit went together great
