Mo did a great job this weekend, as did Dujan to put Mi2's first and second in a highly competitive Mod class at the Northwestern Carpet Champs this weekend. Both these guys deserve a hand!

Default 30mm foams

I was always told 30mm foams wont fit the rear of my Mi2 .

Well they fit, is there any reason i need to cut them down ?

Hey guys... we're getting closer... I got the shocks on the car today, and am setting the car up using Paul's Novak Race setup sheet... Weird thing though... I only have 4 holes for the upper shock position instead of the 5 shown on the sheet... I'm just assuming my tower is an older version.

Other issue I seem to have are the droop screws are not hitting the chassis when the shocks are on... I've unscrewed the ball cups about 4 threads, but the droop screws are still 3mm or so above the chassis... do I need to go with longer ball cups, or ????

Thanks!

I'm hoping to race either tomorrow night, or maybe saturday depending on how busy work is...

Ron

If you don't have any limiters inside your shocks, yes, you need to put some longer ball cups on the shocks. That should fix the problem.

On the setup sheets where you see low values 2,3 they are most l ikely measuring the drope above ride hight. So after ride hight has been set. That is how PW and adrian's setup sheets look nowadays.

I'm not sure why your droop screws are not touching. I use to use the long ball cups when i had the stock shock towers but now i'm using the short ones with the carpet towers. However if you are setting up for carpet i'm assuming you are using the inner on the shock towers which would make that distance a little longer than normal. So yeah use the long cups if nothing else works. or maybe one of the team guys will reply with some kind of reasoning for your issue.

BTW: Art J. got me going with the tamiya and we had to take aprx 1mm off the long ball cups when were using them because of how tall they were. Something to keep in mind.

Is this also recommened when you are using the carpet towers? And where do you get the limiters from if your using the tami's?

I think Ron is running a Mission, not the Mi2. I never had a chance to run that car but as far as I know they didn't have lower towers for that car. That's why he may need the longer ball cups.

As far as limiting the Tamiya shocks, it's not needed if you're running the carpet towers. However if you're running the stock towers with the Tamiya shocks, I think you'll need to use some longer ball cups to make length.
