On the setup - I see that you used the front riser plate, but it doesn't say anything about the rear. Did you use the stock plate on the rear too?
stock rear riser was used. Sorry for the confusion. I only noted the front plate because 99% of our set up's are without the plate with 1mm shims under the blocks. having the front raised slightly made the car a bit more stable as it didn't want to dive in as hard. If you have a high traction carpet track and you want a little more turn in you can try lowering the plate 1mm.

i thought that Adrian did all of the painting......unless you wore yourself out with the sticker job....LOL The body looks awesome though. I need to get off of my lazy backside and paint some bodies up. I have run a solid paint job since May and no one knows who I am anymore.

@PW, Wow, impressive paintjob dude! Thanks a lot for giving me and my father a helping hand with driving directions and such btw. I guess I'll see you in a week or so, I'm really looking forward to some nice weather and spectacular racing!

Should I go back to being a trash talker????? I don't think I'll do that. The pink checker board body will be back for next weekend or by the regionals.
What body are you going to run next weekend? I really like the caddy. I'll be running it the stratus 2.0 and the protoform alpha.

No my friend, you do whatever feels right ...I was merely making an observation ...I've been using the Mazda 6 on asphalt and been really happy with it, I do have stratus 2.0's to I guess I need to bring them both out as I have no idea how my baby's gonna fell on carpet.

i never got to run the mazda 6 on the losi. That body came out right when I put it down. It may be fine on the Losi. I gotta go and read page 29 now I'll email you if I have any questions after reading and actually trying to program this thing.

hey guys...back again! this may make yall mad but...can the mission2 a-arms be fitted to the mission1 chassis? (the rear ones at least). if it's a waste of time then i will understand, it's just that..at this new track i'm racing at....the guys there bash a lot and my front and rear(especially) adjustments get knocked way out of whack. i like the mi's layout and don't want to change chassis. but a MORE durable fixed rearend would be a blessing. thankyou for the help guys.

Default low shock towers

II was looking for some options for my mi2 for this winter.

I saw the spool would that work on most carpet tracks?

I also saw the low shock towers but aren't they only for tamiya shocks? Or do you need them also with the new shocks?
Can those towers be used with normal shocks? and what would be the effect?

Are there any other parts improving tha car on carpet?


Arjen
(ps PW can i order directly from schumacher usa from europe?)
