I feel ya shoe, I'm pushing so hard to get the cars here ASAP!!!!

I truly think its really awesome that they at least got some cars to us for the average racer going to the carpet nats....No way any other car manufacture would have done that

ottoman....I assume you are getting your car from KT Hobbies? KT Hobbies will have a lot of parts in stock at the same time the car arrives and I will also have parts with me at the carpet nats.

WOW, good news about the track RB & Ray

Finally got time to start assembling my Mi2 yesterday. Some things I've noticed so far:
-still have to remove the thin spacer behind the wheel hex cone washer, otherwise the bearings will bind
-had to file rear lower arms to fit the hub carrier pivot pin e-clips (pin a bit 2 short/arm 2 fat)
Have to continue today... I can't wait to drive it. Any setup advice for carpet/rubber would be useful, since I won't get any practice before the first race It has to work better than my Mission the moment it touches the carpet

Yup-all flappers are 8'x4" long pieces of HDPE with a 1/4 foam padding behind. They are awesome-for a flapper!!

That track definately has some of the best boards around. And believe me, I KNOW BOARDS! LOL!

if the weather stays good for tomorrow it's going to be fun at speedworld. The pro4 will be there along with a couple of new Yokomo's and E.J. might be running the new tamiya (if he has it yet) and then Tessa will be rolled off of the truck....LOL

PW- weather permitting I'll have some mod feed back for you this weekend. Thanks again for the set up.

Hey guys, I was working on my MI2 and I thought I would throw up a pic of the front brace Paul was talking about for running without the roll center plates installed. I'll post a few more also.

You can see it on top of the front forward arm mounts. There are two purple lock nuts holding it in place.

Default Batterytray

Is it correct that in the Mi2 Carbon kit there is a S1 batterytray?
I thought that when you buy a Carbon kit there are only carbon parts in the kit and no S1 parts!
