Now that I'm the proud owner of an Mi3 I have a few questions......
1: Are there any other brand springs that will work on the shocks?
2: What would you recommend for spares running rubber tires/carpet
3: What spur gear would you recommend for a 13.5 to get the proper fdr with rubber tires?

I don't hit much stuff so I dont need a ton of crazy spares just the stuff that seems weak and any recommended tuning options. This is my first rubber tire car so I figured I would start with the best. I normally run carpet/foam but the rubber class is picking up steam. Most of the guys are running Jaco Greens so any setup info would be great too.
Thanks!
Joe

Most of them work well. I like the spring kits sold by Corally (black for rubber tires). Very consistent, plus cheaper and easier to find that Schumacher.

Get a few bags of the various thickness steel and purple aluminum suspension spacers. Everything on the car is adjusted with those, more or less. Arms, front knuckles... that's about it. I've had my car(s) for about 4 months and have only broken one suspension arm.

The 96T is a must have if you run 13.5 or slower with 64p. You can reach it with a 114T, but it's not fun. There is a 90T out now, too, if your pinions are not on the larger side.



It's a fantastic car—you're gonna love it. Just make sure you go over the car with a 2.5mm driver every so often and tighten all of the screws up. They tend to loosen up when you hit stuff.

I have a set of the AE springs, a set of the schumacher springs, and a set of the xray springs. they all fit fine.

For spares I would get front arms, inner camber mounts, and hingepins.

You can run wither the 96 or 90tooth spurs. Youll need between a 35-45 depending on which spur you use. Your FDR should be around 4.3-4.6 with the novak or the SP

I've only used the stock springs, but I saw a lot of guys running X-ray springs at Snowbirds.

Depending on how much you hit, Front arms and hinge pins??

90t or the 96t spur for 13.5.

Joe,

You will want to get front arms, a pack of front inner hinge pins, alloy shims, purple shim set, 4 and 6 degree blocks, stiff and extra stiff top deck, rear arms, 1 pack of cvd's.
I use the xray spring set.
Setup wise. A good one to start out with is Jimmy's from Vegas. It is on the Schumacher website.

the first thing i would buy is a p-dub bumper,,,with that, i dont break as many parts. i personally bought the mi-2 bumper, and re-fitted it for my mi-3
i think the mi-2 bumper is bigger, and gives more protection.
