I have been running brushless for about a year and a half now but thought it would be nice to have a working esc for brushed

Are there any aftermarket spur gears that will fit the Mi3? I've been wanting to get the 70t 48p spur gear, but it seems they're out at the moment. Seems dirty parking lots and 64p don't always get along.

Its a good car , i think you can still get parts for it, try here for some set ups http://www.racing-cars.com/usa/searc...e1=prodvalue14


They drive a little bit different, to me the mission felt lazy compare to the MI2.
The mission was my first electric tc and i loved it but i soon upgrade it to the Mi2 then the EC and now the MI3

Very impressive; it only took 3 years

The 3.5 looks good though

How can you tell the difference between the carpet and stock shock towers? On one set that I have, there is a gap between each of the shock mount holes. On my other set, all 4 of the shock mount holes are "attached" to each other. Can someone help me determine which one is which.

What is the advantage of the lightened bulkheads? My car is already underweight as it is..

How can I tell the difference between the medium flex arms and the stiff ones? I have ones that say C/F on them and ones that dont. Not sure which is which.

the carpet towers are lower than the stock
the advantage for the lightweight bulkheads is the weight advantage
the medium arms will have a "m" stamped on it

Thanks for the info Marcos. You are always very helpful!

Are the carpet towers used for carpet foam and when you have carpet rubber with high traction?

I looked through all my arms but none of them have an "M" on them. They all say C/F and then some of them have a hole drilled for a ballend that is used for the swaybar mount and the others have a molded swaybar mount on the inside of the arm.

Hi Chirag,

the med flex arms will have an "M" in place of the "C/F", and are used for outdoor rubber tire racing to gain a bit more traction outdoors.

the light weight bulkheads are an advantage for those running heavy NIMH packs, really. The LW bulkheads save a few grams in weight and thus helps meet get closer to minimum weight rules for those running NIMH.

Lipo users, we dont need them, really.
