I just finished my Mi2...same experience as Rob...set ride height to 5mm...put it on the tweak station...it was dialed! Not one turn of a preload collar!

Hey guys,

We just had our first run with a prototype MI2 today. What a great car. It ius so much freer than my Mission before I had even put it onto the track. The car is super smooth and had excellent high speed steering with more exit. this is kit setup with a diff. We always run oneways here in Australia and this car is setup better than my Mission ever was. I have to say its super easy to drive and transitions very nicely. Havent tested durability as yet as I havent hit anything-thank god!

Will start trying some more settings tomorrow and spool diffs intrigue us with this car.

Will keep updated.

Chris P, I haven't managed to break anything yet (4 meetings - i think!!) and it has taken a couple of knocks in that time!! I think Robbie's been assembling a little "graveyard" but i think that's probably just him as everyone else has been fine. Remember mine survived that W/L national as well, that was a feat in itself

I have run a spool a couple of times. In testing a while back it was sweet, but it was a track where we always ran a spool with the old car. Tried it with rubbers on carpet today, mega fast, but as soon as i strayed off line then it was game over, there was coming no back!!

Well my last pre-Birds post, 9 hours I will be on my way over to Orlando to pick up McMoney and Teemu from the airport. Anyone heading over there for the race please stop by the Schumacher booth and say Hi.

What the heck, anyone who comes by the booth and places an order with us or a local shop for the all new MI2 will get a special edition Mi2 shirt This shirt is a limited run just for the Snowbirds race....Special thanks to Latif!

Paul/Adrian,
I would like to order in advance an Acer Ceramic Bearing set for the MI2. Is the bearings set for the Mission the same as the MI2?
Thanks
Joe

dont spend your money on bearings...not needed!

My Mi2 is free'r than my mission was with accer carbides, fully blown clean of grease and lightly royal oiled, plus R.W pulles, and prepped belts..(soaked rear belt in wd.40 to soften

the Mi2 is free'r out of the box standard with no attention paid to increasing efficiency whatsoever...no belt prep, no work done to bearings etc..

the bearings included in the kit "look" identicle to Acrer dual polyamide bearings, blue seals, and are oiled not greased....

the difference from the mission bearing kit is that the diff bearings are now a 15x10 flanged bearings..you also need extra of the small flanged layshaft bearings to be used as the front belt tensioners...(4 in total) plus the layshaft power roller non flanged...

sorry but I dont have the bearing specs here with me, but save your money at least until its time to replace the kit bearings from wear and tear...

I ran my car as it came from the Kit, with the addition of some titanium screws and it was well and truly underweight, even with 15 grams added near the servo to get perfect balance, and a personal transponer installed...

this is the first car I havent felt the need to hopup!...may just get some Ti turnbuckles in purple coz they look so nice, but thats about it ..

I equaled my P.B on the 3rd run, using the kit setup and a diff, truly stoked!..

at the end of the second day, once I changed the diff to a spool, lets just say I was very very happy indeed!..still grinning...=)

The Mi2 is the easiest car I have ever driven at speed, I spent 2 days familiarising myself with the car, making adjustments to see how the car responed, and at the end of the 2nd day when I went for some fast runs, the times were there.

Andrew Cartwright did some very hard runs in his production Mi2 last night with an 8 turn on carpet/foams. He did not install the power roller for the rear belt and had not a trace of skipping belts. I truly believe we have the best drivetrain of any sedan.
