Front sidewalls, grip roll always starts from the front.

Usually just glue the fronts, as traction roll is usually caused by the front - although i have had it caused by the rear once!!

The new (old!! - not notched) rings do fit the the Mi3 outdrives, i've been using them for a while.

Haven't tracked down the carpet setups on this forum, they are here somewhere but life's too short to go looking for them.

there is one for foam and the one sent by jimmy maddison but a bit confusing for me as it is not filled on a setup paper as a .pdf (thanx again)
the other day I've checked setups for other make of cars even TC5 has lots of setups don't ask the xray ,tons of pages of setups for 007...

To be fair, we got the car just after the start of teh outdoor season, so i doubt many of the team in the UK have done and carpet running with the full production car.

I did a club race on wednesday, i felt i was getting there with a setup, but it's not quite right yet. Certainly made a lot of progress, but it's not fully dialed yet.

Hi Marcelo,
Try some of these, they are the team setup sheets for some of the big races.

Mi3 Setup Sheets

Hey Marcelo,

The Kit set up should get you in the ball park. There are some really great asphalt setups on www.racing-cars.com

What tires and surface are you running on?

Hey mate

the only option parts i got with my kit where the titanium turnbukles as it was all that was in stock! i have just ordered the new diff rings but havnt had the chance to test them out but alot of drivers have nothing but good words to say about them so i guess they work well. I havnt had my kit for long but i am still using the kit roll bars and springs (white) and i have to say the car is pretty dialed!! i only messed about with drive height and damping while ive had the car so everything is simalar to the kit setup. As you have just bought your MI3 i would suggest just keeping it on kit setup and working from there !

good luck!
Scott

I believe he means 3mm at the back of the front wishbones, so the front wishbones have been moved forward by 1mm (I think these are the Quick Clips)

Mi2 diff rings are the same part # old and new. Supposedly the old stock has been purged at Schumacher USA. PN U2408
