thanks nexus.

aaron - i keep the rear where like it is because the rear/rear blocks are flush with the bulkheads and that helps keep the screws from bending. for the front, i like to let the hex offset determine where the hingepins are spaced. that, to me, is the dominant effect.

also, when running ~ 190mm w/o hex spacers the bones nearly fall out of the oudrives.

Forgot to mention, I also have the 2.5mm chassis at the moment.
Would the medium flex wishbones help?

Take the anti-squat out mate.

Also what droop were you running and how have you measured it ?

Also check ya hinge pins.

Thumbs up First run with the MI3

Just want to say I made my first run with my new MI3 and WOW. This car is freaking amazing. Stock setup was right on. I've found a lot of great info in this thread and glad to see that help is just a click away.
Made the switch from Xray and couldn't be happier. Anyone want to buy a 007 .

BTW, nice paint Kev (customworksqueen)

Hinge Pins seemed OK but I will take everything apart again.

Droop was set to 4 all round, using a stepped guage, used to run 5 front 4 rear in Stock, but Sunday I was in Mod.

Weather was cold which didn't help, but others cars seemed almost like they were on a fast dry track while mine looked like a spinning top.
