Also please email to braddvercoe@kalamazoo.com.au

I have only run the MI2 with foam tires so far and have been very happy, although i have a rubber tire race coming up (i have little experience with rubber). the track is medium with a few technical surfaces, outdoor asphalt, mod class, there is a control tire Sorex 36 with sorex C insert.

Please advise if the PW base is appropriate or if there is something else that would work well.

Thanks in advance

We have switched ISP/Hosting Companies and have had some fun with the transfer of the domain name and name server recognition. The old site should be back up by Monday.

The new site will be up in mid July.

Unhappy

AdrianM (or anyone else with good suggestions)..

Was hoping to get the new MI2 today..hasn't come in yet, but may still come in the afternoon delivery. Are there any special building suggestions I should think about while putting it together. From what yout old me on the phone that I can remember...drop of oil on screws to keep them from seizing, and follow the setup sheet you're sending to the letter.

Any others??

Mark

Mark, No there aren't any special tricks that aren't mentioned in the manual/team tips sheet. All you need to do is take some time, and make sure that you are resting the car on a flat surface when you are tightening the chassis components. Just make sure everything seems right, and chances are it will be.

Dont install the rear belt tensioner and the upper front belt tensioner...they aren't necessary. The lower tensioner is all you need.

Be sure to pre thread your hub carriers before putting them in the yokes.

Hi John_S, i don't have a mi2 but this happened on my tc3, all i used was a counter sink bit which goes at the end of the drill and counter sinks the holes more, problem solved.
