Right now, I have the rubber tire carpet set up from the manual on the car, but like I said, this set up is based on 5 cell. Will it still work for me.

thanks...

IMO brah, the 5-degree chubs are just about perfect for me. Great turn-in & the steering doesn't 'bleed' mid-exit. And I say that only because I haven't tried the 6's yet.

Hey all, Sorry to change topic but i would just like to know if the MI2EC is still a competitive car? I have the option of buying one pretty cheap but i would just like to know how it goes? I will be using it for Stock racing. Also how old is it?

Cheers

The EC came out about 2 years ago. There's a handful of parts than transfer over from the EC to the Mi3, but not many. It's a totally different design. The EC is still a good car. It's just not quite as refined as the Mi3.

i think the 6* hubs are the best for my style of driving - it gives you just a bit more aggresive steering....
