Default SETUP FOR SUPERIOR HOBBIES

Hey Guys,

Couple weeks ago PW or Adrian (I think) posted their setup sheets from the super regionals @ superior hobbies. Do any of you have that setup sheet still? Where do they normally store their setup sheets?

Different question: WHen running on a longer track versus a shorter track with the MI2. What changes do you guys usually make to compensate for either? BTWN each run what parts should i inspect for damage or shifting?

R.

The only thing you should have to change is gearing. I have run the same set up at four different tracks and one of them being carpet.
My gearing also pretty much stayed the same but sometimes I 'd adjust for a longer straight.

Hey guys... I'm converting my front spool back to a diff thank to Jon Kerr... THANKS JON!!
Question i have is... What's the proper setting on the diff screw...

It's been a LONG time (Axis2) since I've done one of these...
I was thinking something along the lines of tightening all the way, then backing off 1/2 turn??

Thanks for the help guys... these forums rock!!

Well, I went off the exploded view, got it all together, and after tightening all the way down, backed it off 1/2 turn... feels really good, so unless I hear differently, I'll try it like that...

Default Locked Diff

Hey guys,

I was taking a look at one of Adrian's setup and i noticed that he had a "locked diff". Now, this may sound stupid, but what exactly is a locked diff. I would imagine that when you tighten the diff until it does not work at all but then wouldnt that be the same as a one way or spool rather? And why would you want to do that versus actually using a spool? Likewise how much does that affect the setup if i used a regular diff versus a locked diff?

You help is appreciated.

"Locked diff", on the setup sheets, just means a spool.

Yes and so will the new Schumacher springs.

I want to thank P-Dub for all of his help this weekend. He never hesitated once to drop everything and answer all of my questions. Class act people like Paul are what makes racing fun. I am very happy I switched this year to Schumacher cars. Thanks alot.

I just uploaded my new setups for foam and rubber to my site (www.mo-net.ws) and to www.gearchart.com . I ran the Northwest Carpet Champs this weekend and TQ'd and won 19 turn rubber and won mod foam.

Hey Mo,
Gongrats on your laying it down this weekend
I wanted to check out your setups, and I'm having trouble downloading the rubber set up either from your website or gearchart.com Mabey it's something on my end (although I was able to print out the mod w/ foam one) Thanks and keep up the good work on the Mi2!!!!
