My traction rolling problem was all in the top deck. Changed that and nothing else and the tractio roll dissappeared.

Check out Ebay. I think I saw one on there about month or so ago.

Had great fun with my Mi3 at Carpet Wars R1 today, Many thanks to Jimmy Maddison and his setup, and for the tips I've picked up from this thread, for getting me on A final pace even though my thumbs couldn't quite keep up with my car on a number of occasions I made my first A final at this level of competition.
Cheers guys

Paul

Default ORION 4800

Welp, got my Mi3 built.. got the kit and the shock oil was all over EVERYTHING... and the front Shock tower was chipped, from their drilling of the shock mounting holes. Yes, they are doing good and sending me a clean manual, new shock tower and oil. I have it all built at this point and have fitted my Orion 4800 lipo in there perfect... also measured out to the spec 51oz.. required by our track. I'll be posting pics soon.

The oil got me on one of my kits as well. It sucks at first, I just dumped everything out of the bags and was fine.
