At least you got it narrowed down. I was between the Mi2, R3, X-Ray, Yoko and Pro-4. I ended up buying the Mi2 from SpeedTech last Friday, I should have it by morning. I honestly don't think that you can really make a wrong choice with these world class chassis. I really like the support PW and Adrian give out on these forums, and also the growing support for the car. Whatever you choose, you won't be dissapointed.

Get the Mi2 Vortex...

car is so easy to drive...parts are cheap as chips, and readily available..

New parts being developed and coming in all the time..+ setups are well shared in the Schuey community.

AdrianM: Are we going to see the newer Shuie shocks to go with the Short towers this year?

Just wondering if I should purchase the Tamiya shocks for this winter or wait for the new Shuie shocks. [I know I can also shorten the shafts of the originals by 2mm for the same effect]

Gav, I told you the rear hubs were cool Must admit i haven't run mine yet, i have them, but didn't get chance to test them at the national this past weekend as there were other things going on.

Chassis is cool as well. Seemed good in both low and high grip conditions. Ran it in the high grip and it was good. We also had some rain to get rid of the grip and the car was also good.

hey guys (uk guys in particular)
im lookin for a good tarmac setup for stoneheavan if any of you know it. Its a fairly open track with 1 or 2 tight bits and medium to low grip on rubber tires
Im going to try the asphalt setting out of the back of the manual to see how that goes but any other sugestions would be well apreciated thanks

There is no performance diffrence between the Tam and Schu shocks. The Tams are just easier to build.

We will have new shocks by late summer. I wouldnt count on an updated Mi2 untill after the current car is out for over a year...so sometime next spring and thats just a guess. I can honestly say there have been no discussions regarding this yet

Hello,

On pictures of Teemu Leinos Car, from the last "LRP-Touring-Car Masters", it seems, that he used other rear C-hubs and steering arms in front !

Does anyone of you know anything about this ?

In which way it is better on carpet ?
