It isnt that the 96 spurs are hard to come by, its that they arent yet out. They should become available early Feb and should be easy to get at that point.

Man, Randy had me going there... I had to go down to my work bench and make sure that I actually had a 96t spur on my Mi3. I was like "aren't yet out"...huh...

Qualifying for the stock class is now complete and it is Christoph Thiele that is the class TQ, as confirmed after the 3rd round of qualifying. The big surprise of the round is that Thiele did not win the 5th and final round, that honour went to Jimmy Maddison, the Schumacher racer put in the quickest time of the the day with a 17 lap run in 5:04.01, a second quicker than the best time of Thiele. Jimmy who is running some prototype parts on his Mi3 has now become one of the favourites for the tomorrows event.

??pics?? :P

Let's ANALyze :P

Top deck?
5 Cell chassis but I think that's been out.

My question is also what's the advantage/difference with the grey belts? Just wondering since I see he uses the black.

Looks like the outdrive bearing holders (diff and spool) are turned down (milled) on the outer edges?

Thats not the normal 5 cell chassis, the cells are further foward than normal.

He was running a different steering system but has gone back to the normal.

So they are running 5cell 19T...nice.


Now if the U.S can get it together and adopt 5cell racing in Mod and 19T that would be sweet.

East Coast Bodies.

Has anyone tried the Evo X yet? I have one mounted but has not seen the track yet. Do you guys think it's more of a carpet/foam body. The lines look very low downforce.

The front end w/the blunt nose mimics the DNA1.
