hey just curious what are the numbers mean (6-6.5 or 8) I still new. Just curious you meant tight carpet and opean ashpalt. what about tight ashpalt. I used to run a hight gear on my tc3 never had a problem with over heating. One guy had a bump from c to b mains. ran a high gear on his tc3 with a monster. the monster couldn't handle two heats in a row. ( nice smoke show though) I think I might try my orion core for a bit and see what she has. I'm running 767 brushes. Just had the com cut and new brushes. Just curious about the different spring that are avail.

Man I hope you guy are getting sick of all my question. I just want to show those x-ray, that the mi2 is going ot give them a run for there money.

The numbers they're posting are the final gear ratios. It's actually 6:1 ratio or 6.5:1 ratio. One thing to remember with gearing, the terminology can be a little confusing. A 6.0 gear is actually higher than a 7.0 ratio. The lower the number, the higher the actual ratio is. A good way to think of it is look at a full size cars transmission. 1st gear or low gear would be, lets say 10.0. (I don't know the exact gear ratios you'd find in a full size tranny) Go to 2nd gear and be maybe 8.0:1. and so on. High gear would be the closest to 1:1. You'll get people argue about this all the time but this is how it actually is.

Tony we pretty much all use the 3 hole pistons! And they are white.

I only use 3 hole pistons. If you're familiar with Losi Shocks and pistons, they're about equal to the #58 pistons.

Is there a release date on the MI3 yet? My experience with Shcumacher tells me that it's behind release schedule by now.

There isn't an Mi3 as it stands.

Paul, what's the deal with running a Corally steering rack??

As for running with the inner ball raised, yeah that is actually a fairly good idea. It's something that we've done over here for a while.

We started running the raised camber link about a year ago with good results...Check out the BMI towers

MattW...The steering rack was orginally put on so I could test different ackermann and to eliminate the stock bulky servo saver system. I've never been a fan of the stock system and this was the cheapest & easiest way to test a different system.

Mi3...I can assure you that there is nothing yet, just a wishlist from the racers
