You can get a 2.5mm carbon chassis with the cut out for the adjustable tray from Fibrelyte in the UK.

They can also make the chassis in any thickness you require

The stock ratio (that everyone uses) is 1.8, which is using the 20t pulley. You can tell which pulley your using because the 20t is much bigger than the 17t, or if you don't have one of each to compare you could count the teeth if you wanted .

3. Top Secret Nitro Truck. Dec 05

you can buy an Mi2 with confidence now as the Mi2 is really flying right now in the US and Europe.

PW Won the 2004 ROAR Nats in 19T and we had 2 cars in the Mod Mains (6th and 9th). If he hadn't gotten hit and broken in the first round PW would have been top 5 in the invite class at the Reedy Race (He ended up 11th). Every time they were in the same race Rheinart (the current WC) could not pass PW.

Teemu is on the Podium in just about every race he has entered this year and recently won the Nordic champs turning faster lap times than Rheinart and Groskamp.

If you always wait for a new car you will never buy one. The day after a new car gets signed off for production work begins on its replacement. There will be a new sedan but if you wait you will be missing out on a lot of good times with an Mi2.
You have a great point. I am also VERY excited about your new off road 4wheel drive car. So it looks like December? If that is the case I will have mine for the Losi race...Thanks and keep up the good work!

"plan on having a ton of fun" is STLNLST code for "I know I'm going to get my but kicked".

Has anyone tried the ackerman link in the outer holes on the steering bellcranks?

I've noticed that in all the setups I've downloaded, everyone is using the middle hole.
I use the outer holes (the troy schafer holes :-)) and i like it a lot. It SEEEMS like it makes the car a little free'er while maintaining drivability. I started using them as part of a setup i got from Padilla do you may want to ask one of those guys what exactly they do.

Default BMI chasis

BTW. I'm still waiting to here what you guys think about the production BMI chassis. I'm thinking a new chassis will soon be in order but dont know if I should go for the BMI or another TMU chasis. How are the production BMI chassis different from the ones that PW and the others drive?

I just got home from a pretty productive night at SoCal. The car was better than it has ever been and I ran a SPOOL (Just for you Clint ) I was on 12 run old Sorex 36r's because my Tire order didn't come in this week and I was only .1 sec off fast lap in Pro Mod. I was quite pleased. I had some kind of motor or ESC trouble in the main. I'll need to pull it apart tomorrow to figure out what happened. But over all a very productive day.

Donny- I'll send you this setup I ran so you can try it if we go up there again in a couple weeks. It was very good.

Thanks. The car was great. Basically running the same setup from the Reedy Race. Even the RP30's that I ran at the Reedy. Gotta love those days when you car works the first time you put it on the track and you don't have to wrench all night long.
