Yes it's the latest, wicked fast and ultra stable. Actually it is as fast as your motor divided by 1.8 multiplied with your gearing and as stable as your set-up . If you compare it to Xray the diff and spool is some few grams heavier which only matters when you accelerate..

What are the best springs for the mi3


I race an mi3 on semi bumpy medium grip asphalt at club races in SD.

I have shumi whites in the front and Associated silvers in the rear.
I also have a full set of x-ray springs - I was gonna try the 15lbs in the front and 14lbs in the rear


Ive also heard of alot of guys running the tamiya yellows

Tamiya yellows would be the first thing I'd try at FHR.

I know what you mean JB. I think that setup should be included in the manual.

Man am I Lucky! I got two drivers who I see on a weekly basis and pit with. Both with awesome setups . . .

McGoo almost made the Foam A at Carpet Nats and Marker made the Rubber A at Novak and almost did it again at Carpet Nats.

I guess there's no excuse for me now!
