I agree with GK on this one the only weak point in the LP was the drive shafts , thats why every one ran TR or Litmodz stuff But the new ones on the cx seem outstanging quality

see them here at www.car69.me.uk for some close up pictures of them

I ran it also with timing boost before we settled on no timing rule.
The higher timing you run, the smaller pinion/bigger spur you want to run.

My son runs a MI3.5 in vta and we are trying to find a good base set up for it. Will the suggested rubber tire for carpet be the best place to start?(only difference is associated blue springs on front and silver on back) The setup he had on it pushes like a dump truck unless you have like new tires on it. We need to find a setup that works with old tires as well. ANY help would be appreciated.

If its only pushing when the tyres have worn it says to me that the tyres are wearing into the camber. Either try rotating you tyres around more often or reduce the camber, probably on the rear!

Default Schumacher MI3

So I just bought a MI3 roller on rctech with a grip of parts and rubber tires for a sweet deal. The deal is that our club mostly does foam we really dont have many people so not really a stock class. So the question is, do I run mod rubber can I do that? The track said thats what we can do it's ok with them to do that but again should I? Would I stand a chance agaist foam tires? What spedo and brushless system should I be looking into? I know I have many questions but there is many choices out there in onroad and i have been a nitro guy for sometime. Any help would be super sweet... Thanks

Does anybody know a shop or shops that stock Schumacher MI3/3.5 parts in the U.S.A.?? Stormer appears to be stocking most of the parts. Any other shop online or not.
thanks
