The new Ti Bones are VERY NICE. I would say they are one of the first options to look at.

My layout is essentially the same as the Shoe. I haven't got a digi cam handy here at the moment!! Reciever (novak xxL mounted with crystal up parallel with the belt. Then Keyence ESC mounted so wire pads point to the motor. Fits nicely. I then mount the PT on top of the servo.

Cartwright is was 4th with McMahon 5th in last nights similated qualifying. Good luck to the guys as they qualify today!

Oneways vs. Spools - We have not run into a situation where one ways are better than spools yet. Tight diffs aren't anywhere near as good as a spool. Everywhere we go spools are faster. You have to change the setup of your car to make the car turn in harder but that easy with the Mi2.

My car has just as much turn-in with a spool with my current setup as it did with my best one-way setup. BUT with a spool I can run into corners harder and exit steering/acceleration are way better.

In Mod you can run deeper in to corners and tap brakes to make a corner where one way guys have to lift 3/4 of the way down the straight to make a tight corner.

One word of warning...if you crash hard with a spool you will break stuff. Mi2 is toughter than ALOT of other cars in this respect but since there is no give with a spool something has to go. You be the judge of your skill level. If you crash a lot run a diff or a one way.

I ran Acer Ceramics in the Mission. Schumacher metal sheilded bearings are the worst for running on carpet. But I am very impressed with the new blue sheilded bearings that came with the MI2. It may be a while before I switch over to the Acer ceramics with these bearings!

When you say tight diffs, do you mean locked diffs or just adjusted tight?
what set up mods would you do, to get it to turn in harder with a spool compared to a diff?

thanks
