Shaun and Adam running the USA HQ don't care about guys who live in the Midwest where it's 30deg today

Anyone notice the rear towers on the box pic are different then the actual kits? Or is it me?

Tony, those are hoodless sweatshirts, not long sleeve t-shirts. If they were I'd be on them like a fat kid on a cupcake

Also they are sans hood's which is also looked down upon by ALL the feedback I've received UNTIL TODAY!

If you want them I'll get them you guys tell me how many.....also expect an email to all of you today.

The pic on the box is a prototype pic and things changed last minute from what i've been told

The pic on the box is the same pic of the prototype I saw a couple of months before anything had hit the net.

Any word on the smaller spur gears that it seems everyone is awaiting?
Schuey needs to help us with these things, as it's going to be very difficult to run stock and slower brushless motors in the Mi3 without smaller spurs...


Has anyone figured out an adapter for the Mi3 to allow regular spur gears yet? Honestly, it's the only thing about this car that I don't like.

i propose that jaybee (sweet jerome, as he likes to be called) goes over every team driver's car before each big event. new mounting, new wiring, and whatever balancing he deems necessary. it should be mandatory that all team cars look like (or near) those that jaybee has shown us. simply awesome, sir.

then, the cars will be shipped to randy caster (aka - randall 'the vandal' caster) , where he will properly shim and align them.

meanwhile, mcgoo's painting up shells for each of us (since jaybee's already busy stripping wires) ...

finally, the finished package will meet their owners at the race track, ready for battle.

so, what do think about this adam? can you mandate this? we'd be alot better off, let me tell you. instant demotion/suspension for anyone caught with a rat's nest or air in their shocks? what do you think?

Why stop at TEAM drivers? I think it should be a mandate for every Mi3 owner!
