Default Mission Asphalt Setup

This is so noob but I started a search and didn't want to read through several hundred pages (at least not today).

Does anyone have a link to some asphalt setups for the Mission? I'm reconfiguring mine to run lipo and brushless and was hoping for a basic setup to start with.

Thanks for the help!

Unhappy

Being that my local carpet track (Seattle Indoor Raceway) has just recently reverted back to asphalt, I'll be converting one of my foam cars back to rubber just to get some 'stick' time. Sucks with Vegas coming up. There is one carpet track about 2.5-3.5 hours away that's a World Class carpet track that I'll have to travel to get some Vegas-esque (<--a seaball-ism) type practice.

1.2 mm drilled on the shock pistons is close to what number in the losi pistons, (i have the losi finger drill set) looks to be a 56?

I don't have the PN but schui makes a steel cvd. The only draw back is there is a shoulder at the threaded end of the cvd that requires you to run a 1 mm spacer or ream the inside of your whels a bit. I run the stelies in the rear of my car as I always run at least 1mm of spacers on the hub there anyway . . .

thanks for that.

btw, any shouie guys - driving - to pavement nationals, just a little heads up, i won't be packing any type of liquids for the flight and will be bugging you guys for hand outs, also not bringing a soldering iron. not complaining about my borrowing stuff will get you a drink, or some sort of food of your choice.

or i may just buy it at the track and give it away after the race depending on how much you drink/eat.

get the steel CVd's part # U2151 and use the purple alloy hexes part # U2401 and you should be just fine for the MI3 !
