Tip: If your blue seals of the bearing are popping out, try slightly smashing (flatning) them. They will then snap into place.

The bearing you want is a 10x15 flanged bearing

I moved my batteries out in the back because thats what the other Mi2's at my track were doing. I put a large shock clip on my threaded shock coller so I could run my xray springs. When I did that it made an incredible difference. I dont really know why but the car was so much better. I also get lots of tuning options now too. Now that the car will handle, I can fine tune the set up more.

Wow not much chat going on in here.

As a new owner of the schuie i am still trying to play around with things, i have taken part of Mo's setup and tried the arms in the rear position, and i can say it made a massive improvement, too much in fact, so i will now have to change some other things, but it turned the car into a steering demon, i hope i can get a balance with this setting as i think it has a lot of potential. we race on Foams outdoors on unprepared tracks, so getting a lot of smooth steering is paramount.

I was a little disapointed though with the steering rack, i brushed up against a pipe and it broke the bellcrank. is this a common occurence? the venue was extremely cold, but i would have thought being from UK cold would not affect their material much.

I would imagine that most of the guys who are helpful here are preparing for the reedy right now.

RC Old Man; the .8 shims were on top of the stock riser plate.

Besercoe: the most likely reason the bellcrank broke would be that the servo saver spring may be overtightened. Try backing it off a bit. I've never heard of one of those breaking.
Where are you trying to get traction? Off power, On power or all around?

I generally find it difficult to get enough off power steering while maintaining a balanced rear end, the track we race on is low-med grip asphalt, with a mix of fast and slow tight corners. with my previous car i liked to have a very planted (firm) rear end for the high speed stuff, with a medium front end so that it can dive in hard, i was thinking that with the front arms in the rear position, i could maintain a more consistent F to R feel, yet still achieve the agressive characteristics.

At this time i am still playing with the car, as there are quite a few new adjustments that were different on the old car. But so far i am pleased with the amount of corner speed it carries, and the drivetrain is very free, but quite prone to picking up debris.

I will check the preload on the saver, how far from the top of the thread should it be wound down?

I had mine screwed down too far so there wasnt much movement before the spring closed completly. I drifted out wide in a sweeper and wacked the wall and even though the spring wasnt hard to compress, it just compressed all the way and broke the steering servo (bottom part, left side). So I now have mine about 1mm or less from the top. But its not so much the steering is squishy.
