the setup further was good but with more corner speed and roll i could be a little bit faster.

my setup now:
Front:

50 oil 3 holes
asso blue 17.0 lbs
2nd outer hole on shock tower
outer hole on the lower arm
middle top camberlink
1.5 camber
0.5 toe out
one way
alloy pivot blocks

Back:

40 oil 3 holes
asso silver 14.5 lbs
3rd outer hole on shocktower
2nd outer hole on the lower arm
middle top camberlink
1.5 camber
3 toe in inboard
alloy pivot blocks

battery front inside
19turn element orion stock motor (hand out)

I thougt i could maby try roll bars but maybe that would change the grip to much.
Do you guys have a couple of tips for me what i can try?


Thanks

Arjen
You may try using the alloy suspension blocks in the rear and go with 2 rear toe. Also try 40wt in the front.

Jon, I noticed in the Spool Benefits thread you mentioned that a one-way isn't relly suited to the Mi2.

Could you explain why? I've just put the Tamiya shocks on my car and my next item to get was going to be a one-way (if I continue to need more turn-in) - so I'm interested to hear about your experiences.

I've noticed that out of all the Mi2 setups on the net - only Teemu consistantly uses a one-way, in fact I don't think I've seen a setup of his without one

It's all personal preference ( IMO) Everytime Mo or I have put one in our cars it's been dialed. We have come to the conclusion that in stock and 19 turn we like the oneway but in mod it's nice to run the spool just for the brakes. Some like it and some don't.

bender...I don't think it matters what car really, just the type of track. Most European tracks are oneway friendly and most USA tracks are not. Most of the euro tracks are very large and flowing and the USA tracks are smaller maze type tracks where you point a shoot. Wish we had some more tracks like the euro tracks

Almost all european racers that come to the US try the oneway, but always end up running the spool

PW hit the nail on the head. However, when I ran a Losi car, I liked the one way on almost every track I went to. It was easier to drive and handled better. The exact opposite has been true with the MI2. I know many of the other team guys also like the spool only. In the spool thread I should have made it more clear that it was my experiance that the MI2 didn't like the one way. Sorry for the confusion.

Adrian- Looking good. You do the paint?

I wish you could take a pic that would convey the horror of a 1/12th car hit hitting a cement block and decelerating from 35mph to 0 on 0"...lol!

The center link will effect the Ackerman settings. You'll want to set it so that both bell cranks are parallel to each other and I honestly can't remember what the exact length is.
