Not really sure why everybody automatically gets the lowered shock towers to run carpet. I have the lowered as well as the standard. With the standard shock towers and running a DNA body I can run the lowest legal body height without a problem or having to modify anything. I haven't tried a Mohawk yet so maybe you may need to do it for that particular body. If you're just gonna club race where they don't check the body height then yeah, slam that thing down but if they do tech at club races and if you plan to go to any "BIG" races where they tech, you're better off running the legal body height as this also could slightly affect your setup.

Running the 414 pulley sure seems like ALOT of work. I guess all for the sake of SPEED

We need a lot more details like do you run on asphalt or carpet, rubber or foam tires, spool, diff or one way, what base setup are you using? Do you have the setup on your car exactly as on the setup sheet? If you miss one detail the whole setup will be off and the car could behave oddly.
Hi Adrian,

I run on asphalt on rubber tires with a spool, set up is as per manual

1st thing that comes to mind, drop the rear wishbones down another 1mm so you have 2mm at the rear and 1mm at the front.

I told you to just come up for a day and we'll get it built.. doesnt take too long to get the car together, but theres definately some things that you'll want to see how they're done so you can do them in the future..

What's the deal with the Orion 4800 Lipo in the MI3. I read something on the other thread but I didn't finish reading it yet.
