I have run my Mi2 on a small asphalt track, will be running on a large on this weekend.

I really like the car, responds well to changes, the drivetrain is crazy free out of the box. It is the best Schumacher car I have owned. ( 99Pro, Axis, Axis2,Mission,Mi2). It has proven to be pretty durable so far.

No need to change chassis!

Springs are always a must have. Sway bars are included. If racing on foam try the lowered shock towers.

I am not a factory driver, but I am a team driver, and I am using Xray shocks, lol, I can build them smoother than any TRF shock , but the stock shocks are fine, they are just the wrong length for carpet or something, I wouldn't know since I race on a suface that cars are supposed to run on, HA HA

Not mine. I like the stock ones. As far as the shock length. you need to unscrew the bottoms to make 66mm.

what?? no i do not think so, I am saying that the stock shocks are fine, like I stated, and that if you build the xray shocks correctly and take you time, they will blow away any shock out there.....as in the TRF shocks are not all that great
