i havent used the overdrive pully yet, but i have used the flex wishbones only at the rear and they give alot more rear end grip but i would only use them outdoor.

On gearchart.com they don't list the Mi3...


Can I just use the Mi2 20T pulley selection and get the same gear ratios at the Mi3?

but running the new smaller pulley may force you to interpolate.

I feel that overdriving the front end really helps with getting the car to steer in high speed corners off power. I dont notice as much of a difference on small tracks.

I tested the overdrive pulley last weekend on a big nitro track. The track was super hot and over heating tires was a major issue. The overdrive pulley made the tires over heat much faster and it was harder to drive once they did over heat. It also made the car steer multiple times in high speed corners. I personally didn't like it in the heat and on a big track.

Any rollout suggestions folks? Darkseid, McGoo, PW, Randy, anyone? LOL

I have been running on the vegas layout and have been floating around a 26-27mm rollout with a C027 (118/30-31)and around a 25mm(118/29) rollout with a good monster.

You might want to decrease a tooth or two due to having such a small back straight....i think that should be a good starting point....

I've noticed that the easiest way to fix the double steering is to go up in shock oil weight. Ive been running 2 x 1.2 pistons with 50wt in front and 40wt in rear.
