Can I consider this an "engraved invitation" to the 19T class? LOL

bring it. It's going to be pretty fun if it's anything like what we had at Modesto. I leave for the regionals on Thursday. Thanks for helping me along with the motor tuning.

There is a company in the UK that has made riser plates in 0.5mm, 1.0mm, and 1.5mm. Made from carbon. They are the same as the origionals (shape wise), so droop can be a little tricky if you go too high.

Hello,

I saw, that some Mi-2 drivers(for example Temmu Leino at the TCM) use spacers under the Gearbox(Bulkheads),Motor-mount and the centre-pully holder.
But what´s the sense of it ? How does it drive ?

It raises the transmission so that the driveshafts are straighter at ride height. Helps transmission efficiency.

I take it that you're running mod foam then?? The laptimes didn't fall off that much from run to run with the rubber tire's.

Yeah, I just wish foam tires didnt chunk at all. The ones I love are when they chunk from the center of the tire when you dont hit anything... niiiice.

6 sets huh? This is why I tell everyone Sedans will die like 1/10th pan car if too many people start running foam on asphalt.

I have only run once on carpet with the Mi2 but it was also a medium bite track with foams. You can find the setup on www.gearchart.com . You can also try PW's setup on www.schumacherusa.net
