I did mess with bump steer quite a bit and it does make a significant difference on the track. Going to bump out did seem to effect the entry more and made it dive into the corner harder under braking.

Hey Guy's,

What are the optional chassis' available for the Mi2?? The BMI, the Teemu and is there also another thickness Schumacher Chassis?

And what are the benefits of each?? As my current chassis, has been worn down alot, so am looking to get another. But I do like the adjustable battery position of the original, but I believe the Teemu and BMI are single position's for cells?

Where is a good place to get Schuey stuff from OS? As here in Australia, it's quite expensive and not a lot of people stock the parts??

Thanks
Iain

Optional chassis are the BMI, Teemu, and I believe there's also a 2.5mm adjustable chassis. The BMI is a 2.5 mm chassis. It's much more narrow, it moves the batteries forward and as far to the inside as you can get. Jason also has a couple different top decks available for different applications. I use the high flex top deck since I run on lower grip asphalt mainly. When I go to Vegas to run on the rug, I'll be running the stiffer top deck. I haven't run the Teemu chassis so someone else may be able to fill you in on that chassis.

The Teemu chassis has the cells fixed in the "Back + In" position from the adjustable chassis. It is 2.5mm thick. There is now a 3700 verson of this chassis, i assume the cell position is comparatively the same.

The 2.5 adjustable chassis was never available for sale.

Jon, i do like the look of that "narrow" BMI top deck

Interesting debate on the bump steer adjustment. Haven't tried it, but might be worth looking into, fairly easy to change.

Just curious how much of the card do you use? Do you cut it to the same size as the diff rings? And you do both sides? I'm just trying to get as much info as I can before I attemp this conversion.

Thanks

Just superglue the ring to the card, once dry cut the ring from the card so there is no excess card. Put the carded side torwards the gear, tighten diff and back off 1/8 or 1/4 turn
