You'll need to re adjust your endpoints and toe settings when you do this.
Thanks Jon.

I remember PW mentioning this from way back when, but I totally forgot about it.

Your car looked very good. How bout getting a PDF together so I can compare it to mine. My car was good got down to about 11.1 after some help from latif but I still needed more steering. As soon as I get a PDF together I will post it.

Fred - were you running a one way? I know it made a huge difference when I switched.

One-way, arms back, front arm sweep, rear arms forward. It just wouldn't turn through the center.

Thanks, If I run it and find I need more steering, Ill get back with you and get those settings.

MJ- thanks for that. If I run the Type R hinge inner pins, will they stay in the pivot blocks? Isnt that the reason for the 2.5mm screws on the Mi3 pins to hohold them and prevent that they slide out? maybe the Type R's also are grooved to accomodate 2.5mm screws at the ends? I could be wrong...

well in the front i had to run the old MI2EC hinge pins and i have no problems at all with them falling out(as long as you tighten the mounts) i also noticed that the hinge pins bend where they are drilled out for that same screw

Would you happen to know the P# for those rear inner hinge pins on the Mi2EC? They are 55mm, right?

I'll get one together in a day or two. I'm glad you came down. It sure was an awesome race.
I can't wait to get the Mi3 on the track again. My car was so smooth to drive.

Off the subject, but I'm trying hard to find something, and nobody seems to have it in stock. I'm looking for a KO Propo PDS-2413 servo, anyone seen it in stock anywhere by chance? Need to have it in my hands early next week!
