I am pretty sure all the lanes were betwen 8 and 8.5 feet everywhere. I remember walking around with an 8 foot long section of flapper material making sure while we were building it.

Nothing like a tight carpet track to hone your skills !

What parts do you guys recommend for running the Mi3 on rubber carpet. Our track is med -med high grip conditions. Where can I get a one-way? I run 13.5 stock with lipos.

You don't really need anything else apart from stock car try Jimmy maddison's DhI cup setup and work on it to suit your driving style...
Hope that Helps

i only speak for myself, but i find a spool is way easier and faster with rubbers on carpet and with my driving style. i need to use a little CA on the outside edge of the tire to keep from rolling.

Our track is med high and tight track (carpet)...I was (am still) using the Jonas Viskafors Carpet Rubber Setup.......it said it is for MOD motor, but actually was very nice and easy to drive on 13.5 or 10.5 as well. I was not aware of that setup untill the fellow Mi3 driver used it and made some low 11s lapper....and I have been using it and do little adjustment to fit my driving...give that a try.

P.S....the only adjustment you have to do since you are running LIPO (like me)...the Center Track Rod, you have to use the 2nd hole from the FRONT and use the short carbon steering plate in order to give clearence of your LIPO. Or the steering plate's bottom screw/space will rub against your lipo while turning...I used the above setting and it still drives good. I've adjust the front (softer) and generate more steering.
