Hey Paul,
Could you shoot me an email regarding the Toe-in blocks and Gear Adaptor.
Talk to ya soon,
Mike

Ill give you guys a call after I run it this weekend. I ran the Mi2 some this week with modified and it worked very well, carried so much corner speed, I wasn't used to it. The track was pretty dusty so once we prep it for race-day it should really fly.

I have never needed to bleed air from Tamiya TRF shocks and they do not sound squishy. The rubber bladder/diaphragm is the key to this.

Harley....Warpspeed is working in conjunction with a new company that will be handling all Schumacher hop-ups. P-Dub Racing Products will first introduce a 3mm chassis (new graphite) with fixed battery placement (battery strap or strap-tape) along with a top-plate that can be used with either chassis. They will also have towers, different riser plates and a ultra light weight wider bumper....Stay tuned and the website is under construction

PW,
Is there a PDF version of the manual for the Mi2 available yet? Also, I noticed that you used a solid top deck at the Birds, will that be offered as an option as well? Thanks.

today is the day that we see what this baby can do on the rug. It should be a great testing session. I have one car set up for foam and one set up for rubber tire's. I'll be back later on tonight to let you guys know how the day went.

UPDATE...... No mod at this event due to running the races as well as the 19 turn class.

The car is pretty good right now with rubber tire's. The car seems to have a bit more steering than my Losi had so getting use to the turn in that this car has is going to take a while. I'm working on a set up that has a slight push (which is more to my liking) but has good steering. The lap times are right there with the guys that set TQ but I haven't been able to put together a flawless run. The TQ is a 22 5:01 2nd is 22 5:04 and I have a 22 5:09 no one else has gone 22 laps in three rounds of qualifying. With the help of PW and my roomate we have the set up pretty stable. There's one more round of qualifying tomorrow with the mains to follow. This is the end of the season carpet Ca state champs for region 12. I will post a set up for anyone that would like to try it out sometime tomorrow after the event is over. It's going to take me sometime to get this car to where I want it but it's getting better by the end of each test session.

I can't get enough of this drive train though. It's pretty free and has excellent rip out of the corners. Once the rest of the option parts come out it should make tuning a hair bit easier. I'm going to bed now. Track opens at 7:00am
