Andrew: I need one of those bumpers for this coming weekend. Think we can get me hooked up Wednesday night? I wouldn't mind having two but one is fine.

Like Yang said you brought home some bacon too - Congrats to you too my friend. And congrats to the rest of the Schui Team for an outstanding weekend.

yeah, Im a little concerned about that too. Kind of a catch 22, but the Mi3 BH seem quite a bit more substantial than T2 BH's. I might try the softer arms also and see if theyre more durable.

Marker-

I will do my best to get it all hooked up for you before you leave. I'd hate for there to be a problem though and for you to be the one to find it at your race. Its your call. Two will be a close one. I still have to rebuild two diffs, two shocks, and get all the mechanics swapped over to rubber status. Plus I am better securing the wire on your esc so they wont fly into the belt. And of course I have two front arms to replace after that 19t and stock main. Ill be working hard on it tonight and tomorrow and I hope we'll have a chance to give it a run down in practice on Weds before racing. WE'll see . . .

Don't think those are the right ones. Mine came with tamiya shocks years ago, but Marcos knows the proper ones and I'm sure he will post the link

i drove the yok bd for a couple of years, their wide bumper was a must, and they do work great, almost never broke a front arm again. put me down for one when they are ready for purchase.

Question for all the Mi3 guru's out there, yesterday i was racing at our winter series and i was running the CHRIS GOETZ setup from the ROAR CARPET NATIONALS. Last month i used the same setup and it was great but yesterday as soon as i let off the power the back end would step out I changed a few things which didn't really help, rear spring rates (harder and softer), droop (front and rear) any idea's
STILL WON THE B MAIN THOUGH

The thing you have to realize is that the setups from some of the big races won't necessarily apply completely to club racing and such. I know some of us this past weekend at the Halloween Classic were running anywhere from 1 degree to 1.7 degrees or so of rear toe in. That would probably make you spin out in some tracks were as for this race the track had so much bite that taking away toe had no effect on the rear traction, in fact it freed up the car so you could stay on power longer and the car could carry that much corner speed. Also, many drivers have different driving styles and what works for some is out to lunch for others. Those setups are really good starting points but you got to let them evolve into your own to suit your style and track conditions.
BTW, the tires you use also have an effect on your setup. I ran the BSR tires on the Jaco prism wheels and you have to add about .5 degree of camber to your setup especially when running 19t. The wheel flexes more and if you don't add the camber you will have less traction and cone your tires. If you run the regular dish wheels you don't have this problem. Enough ranting.....

BTW, all the Schuey cars looked awesome this weekend at the Classic. The competition was crazy. Some of the guys in Stock could have made the A in 19t with their stock motors and some 19T guys could have made the A in mod with their 19t motors. Crazy fast....

PW what top deck is that your running on your car? Do you have many changes that you would make to your basic setup sheet you gave out for a starting point back after the car first came out? I can get Hpi red spring from my local hobby shop they show to be 13.3 and the tamiya springs are 13.3, Do you think they are close enough to use instead?
