That really is a sh!tter aint it. I might just try and make a few 4 cell packs and get a 12th (any excuse hey) after the national.

Looks like i will have to buy some new cells this weekend.

Thanks for the help folks

Hey Jon, do you have a BL setup with the 5 cell chassis for BCR? I ran on Saturday but had the off-road ESC that has a lower temp cutoff that we didnt know about, so I had to switch to brushed, but the power I had with brushless was rediculous, however my car rolled too much for even me, and I think a flatter setup might help the laptimes a lot with the BL stuff...

Randy, I sent you an Email with my last setup from BCR. I think I'm going to go up to Tamiya next Saturday to go watch Patrick win TCS.

They will work, but you really MUST use the 1mm spacers then AND you have to drill the center hole of the washers to 5mm, because Mi2 originally used the wider hexes and the 5mm part of the shaft is longer.
Of course you can also use Mi2 hexes and the conical washers that were used between hex & hub, they will give the same width, then forget about the washers.

Here is a killer big track/med-high bite setup for the Mi3

Side notes: Used Muchmore rebound foam (2 whites per bladder) in front and rear shocks.
Mi2EC arms front and rear.
Carefully drilled middle hole on steering blocks.
Front swaybar is mounted using the EC mounts (used front bumper screws).

I haven't ran the alpha lately - but it won many a championships before the Mohawk came out. The Alpha and the Mohawk are more carpet foam oriented. I have been testing the Mohawk and the DNA back to back with stock/19T foam.

I feel the Mohawk frees up the rear end just a tad and is a bit less aggressive than the DNA.
