Default MI3 ARMS

ARE THE MI3 ARMS DIFFERENT THAN THE ARMS ON THE EC?

IF SO WILL THEY FIT ON THE EC?

I DON'T REALLY WANT TO MESS WITH CAR TO MUCH. IT'S PRETTY MUCH DIALED FOR STOCK OR 19 TURN.

IT WAS JUST THOUGHT........

they are the same the MI3 arms has another mounting hole for the sway bar mounting since is different from the ec

and if you use the mi3 arms on the mi2 you might not be able to use sway bars

Also the Mi3 arms are narrower at the outer end where the rear upright mounts - you will loose teh wheelbase adjustment if you use them on your EC.

What's the best belts to use on the MI3 for mod (LRP X-11 4.5)? Do they grey belts hold up or are the standard black ones the go?
Cheers Andrew

Make sure your set screw on the pinion can't touch the belt. When the car is running, the belts don't exactly stay in a straight line. They deflect up and down. The front belt can hit the set screw and start to wear away the teeth and make them fray sometimes.

ON WHICH CAR DID THE BULKHEADS BREAK
