close ratter, what I am suggesting is using the kit supplied 2mm spacer plate, then using some washers like motor washers, or the Tamiya spacer set to raise the hingepin mounts a little further...but do it in small increments (.5mm is a substantial change in roll centre when adjusted from the lower arm rather than the camber links.

start with no shims under the front arm blocks....and 1mm under the rear arm blocks.

the camber links should start with the kit suggested upper inner front and upper middle rear positions.

Adam....That's great to hear

The P-Dub chassis was put on hold do to a supply problem and just recently they have made progress in getting everything back up and rolling. They can be found at www.pdubracing.com

Thanks, I'll try the kit chasis first but it may have more flex than I want.

Heh guys. Am in the process of getting a Mi2. I'll probably use it at SoCal in stock and 19t. Got a good set up for me to start? Thanks.

eseb - Call Team Orion and ask for Pat McCarson He runs his Mi2 at SoCal all the time in Pro Mod and does really well.

Don Vinkemulder is another excellent local Schu Pilot. Donnie has been making the rounds at the local parking lot races and isn't at SoCal as often as he used to be.

Mark Franko is one of Donnie's buds and is also a very good driver.

I see Don V now and again. I don't know him personally, but his cars always look pretty dialed. Thanks.

Don V is one of the nicest guys you ever met. Next time you see him say hello. He will do his best to get you dialed in.

Mi2 - I have had it happen to me twice in 2 years with the Mission. Both times were during truly horrendous crashes. It is pretty much impossible on the Mi2 due to how deep the batts sit in the tray.

Try gluing a strip of carbon or fiberglass to the chassis on the outer edge of the chassis against the battery. You only need to make it as wide as the center 4 cells to keep them from popping out. I saw a guy that did this at the Nats in 2003 and it seem to stop the problem.

You can also remove the battery posts and cut slots so you can tape you cells in a'la Tamiya 415. Be sure to round the edges of the slots or the tape will get cut if you crash.

Of course the best solution is not to crash

Are any of the guys using the Futaba 3pk? I'm thinking of trying out a whole new radio. Is the M-8 still the radio of choice?
