take off the o-ring, drop the pin out, put the wheel back on and spin it while holding the outdrive with a screw driver or allen wrench.

How are you guys anchoring your lipos in the mi 3.5?
I'm using tape but I'm worried they'll slide out the side.Is there a plate available?

There are 3 ways to do it:
1. Schumacher sells Li-Po Locators which are little carbon fiber pieces that fit the battery slot that can be glued onto the battery to hold it in place.
2. Nexxus Racing has stick on weight that is battery cut out size
3. PPD Billet and others have weight plates that can be bonded to the battery and have slots that drop into the cutout.

I assume you have a flat bottom battery, so in turn those will work. I did not need to add a lot of weight with a 5000c IP pack and it had the bumps on the bottom so I just taped it in. So be careful with a full weight plate on a larger battery because balance will be off. I know people who have ran them but with the bigger mah batteries the additional weight is minimal to achieve balance.

On my Mi4 I have some lead weight on the inside of the chassis so my lipo cant move into my spur gear, and needed weight. But the tape holds the batt in just fine! As long as you have good tape you should be fine

How come you need a receiver pack? The make brushless speed controls without BEC circuits??

cheap and easy, if your using a lipo with a flat bottom, double sided scotch tape will hold it in place just fine.

march- racing will be in turbo mode. Look forward to racing with you. Hopefully it won't be too dry out here for you.(lol)
I went to jacksonville last year for the on-road nats. I was miserable. Sweating just sitting doing nothing.

For those that run the Sorex 28R with the JB insert (carpet tyre), how many runs are you getting before you see a noticeable drop off in performance?

Also does anyone have any problem with the outside edge of the tyre (not sidewall) blistering? Obviously the tyre is overheating or trying to roll over on itself. I've increased the front camber to reduce the contact when cornering and it hasn't helped much, still got roll center adjustments and anti roll bars to try, anyone got any thoughts?

Hey guys, I want to add some ackerman to my mi3.5.I notice there are different lenght track rods. I understand what changing the distance between the pivot balls does, but what about the different lenghts?
Thanks
