My Mi3 was Dialed tonight at Mimi's. Ended up 8th or 9th in the main, big thanks to Just Lessard for the assist! My rubber car (Mi2EC) still needs some work, but will be good to go for the 'Birds.

Chris, Casey, Steve, Justin, Teach, and I all work together well. We had at least 2 Schumachers in each "A" main

Kling, your Mi3 did look good yesterday. You where running against some of the top 10 at the big races. Good job.
Jamie had his Mi3 rubber working good also. (he wouldn't agree). I ran rubber for the 1st time. By the 3rd round the car felt really good. 3rd in the ""B" wasn't to bad.

My car was awsome all day. Justin Lessard and I kept working on it and...Bamb!!! I proclaimed it so. My finish was against some of the areas best and the neck-bone hit me

All of the Schumachers looked good and Steves is no excetion.
My Mi2EC rubber car was the weak link. I'll get it right though....

Well I took my new mi3 out for a run in the parking lot with buds yesterday.Car was a little loose on my first run,so I made I couple of change and the car a lot better.I need to do a little more fine tuning and I think it will be dailed.The only problem I came across in building the car was with the spur gear that was way out of shape.I think this is going to be a great car for me.I really looking foward to the up coming season so I can put a whooping on some xrays and cyclones.

Default MEDFLEX Arms

FLorida and asphalt drivers: Anyone try the Med Flex wishbones in outdoor asphalt...need to know if they actually work better on med traction asphalt and if indeed they are a bit better at taking hits...I'm going to re-stock on Mi3 parts soon, and need to know if the med flex arms will work better for low- and med traction asphalt than the harder stock wishbones...

thanks

I'm not at a driving level to comment on whether they "work better", but for durability, Adam and I are 100% walking testimonials for the increase in durability they provide.

I know I've yet to break a single plastic part on my car in many weeks of track practice and "ping-pong" board slapping racing, as well as months of almost daily motor/Lipo testing in our parking lot. I think Adam has had the same experiences too.

Shawn and I have been running the med arms since they were released and all we run here is outdoor asphalt, we've been very happy especially with taking hits. I hit everything and i haven't bought a second set yet.
