Be much easier to just run the Mi3 in both classes and switch the motor out. 2 different cars means 2 different setups and 2 different feelings, gonna make it harder at the beginning of your run when your getting settled into the car.. Not to mention, Weylin smoked everyone last year in 19 turn rubber with basically the same suspension, now we just have a lot more adjustability and a car thats much easier to work on than the Mi2.

Right now, I running everything dead on with the PW asphalt set up. Droop and all.

I'll try limiting the droop next time out to see how I like it.

Thanks

took the Mi3 out on foams for the first time yesterday - all I can say is that within 2 battery packs I was going just as fast as I was with my previous car. the track I am running it is a low bite LARGE flowing track with a couple of switch backs

I used Goetz's kit setup but started out with lowered shock oil all the way around 40/20. The felt easy to drive, but still had some push in it.

I then raised up my rollcenter's 1mm all the way around - that helped A TON!!

The car still felt sluggish. It didn't "pop" out of the corners. I had to slow down too much in order to get around the corners. I was still running fast, but it wasn't there.

A fellow teammate was running the stock track rod, so i changed out the track rod the setup called for and threw on the stock track rod, and that definitely felt like it gave me a more responsive steering - which is what i needed.

It was time to leave the track after doing all of that - but I did drive my fellow teammates car. He basically was running the same setup I had went to, but had 50/40 shock oil, he had the 1 degree rear hubs (i didn't), thin sway bar up front, shorter "stock" track rod moved forward two holes, and his front shocks on the arm were on the outside hole.

I was able to go consistently faster with his car than with mine. I am thinking my lower weight shock oil is a major factor, and possibly the shorter track rod.

All in all - I was VERY happy with my first day out on foams. I will update again after tomorrow's racing.

Starting to turn my thoughts slightly to our indoor season. So I was wondering what people are doing with the spool up front while running carpet foam?

Is it what you want to run, or is a diff up front a better call?

90% of the time if it works good in the faster class it will be super dialed in the slower class..

As long as I have enough threads in the ball cup at the ends of my shocks, is there any reason I wouldn't want to lengthen my shocks? I ran them all at 62 mm with the standard shock towers, 3 mm of shims for the roll centers, stock chassis, 54 mm foams, and Xray white springs and I found my shock length was limiting my droop, not the screws. I only needed about 1 mm more length in the shock to reach. Or am I just crazy to run small tires like that and Im going to hear "run bigger tires"?
