Hi Adrian...couple of questions on the MI3..

1) Trackrods: which track rod combo makes the car have more reactive/quicker steering for outdoor asphalt med-high traction tracks? It'll be cool if you could post on slowest to fastest combo(track rod, hole, position on steering knuckle)

2) Front inboard toe out or "sweep": can you share your view on inboard toe out vs outboard toe out up front and why do you prefer out board toe out on your set ups, as well as most MI3 set ups out there(havent seen one with in-board toe out yet up front)??

Thanks a lot and hope to get your legendary explanations and findings

Yohan,

Do a search for "track rod" in this thread and Adrians explanation should come up.

LOL!!!! No Howard, Kevin is going to give me first dibs on his goodies before they go to Ebay
Who all is going to be at the Schumacher booth for the hobby show in Rosemont? Wasn't able to get any passes for Marcus and I so I guess we will go slumming with the general public on the weekend days Will for sure drop by the Schumacher booth though.

Tony....I will be there from Thursday till Sunday. You can find Adam, Shawn and Robbin there as well. If you have any request from Schumacher, talk to Adam, I heard he LOVES to talk to customer privately and I am sure he will HOOK you up really good....

I will be there running the Mi3.5 and hopefully the CAT SX...just got the CAT last friday and 2 weeks is NOT going to be enough for me to wrench that beauty especially wife's birthday is in between those day.
