lol, ya I know. I am just lazy. Are you guys still putting those straps on there, if you use a 3mm chassis, if so, what length of screws are you using? Since you have to put a lock nut on top on the strap, correct?

You can lock it up fully or run it with an extremely faint amount of slip. Letting it slip a little can protect your outdrives in a hard crash.

Default Thanks

for the answers about durability. The MI2 definately look interesting. And to top it up, it's the cheapest pro car around here. Seems like it's the best bang for the buck.... Hmmm.... gotta save up some money...

Harsh...if you haven't built your spool yet call the house tomorrow. Mo will fill you in on how to make it or I can do if at the track on Saturday. It's really simple and will only take no more than 5min.......if even that.

I wrote to Schumacher a month or two ago about their WEB-site in general, and they said they are working on a major update of the site.

STLNLST, It's built, just not sure if I put enough "slip" in it, I'll let you check it out on Saturday, oneway is in it right now, figure I'll practice with the oneway then slap the spool in and "feel" the difference.

Has someone tried to cut off every other tooth on the belts or on the diff pulley on the Mi2?
And was it better?

guys were doing that on the Losi to free the car up some but to be honest we are not Kinwald or Matt Francis so these little mods aren't going to really help the average joe. Bearings made the big difference on my Losi. The MI2 is very free as is but if people feel the need to cut every other tooth on the belt then test away. Who knows....it might help out and it might not. I guess you won't know until you try it.
