However, I want to get a feel of the MI2, before doing so. I have to have a good starting point, setup-wise, before mounting the one-way.

Unfortunately, there dont seem to be many setups on the net for rubber tires on carpet. I've found one, though, which looks very promising - as far as I can see, without have tried the car myself

I finished putting that setup on my car last night. I'll see how it works at SoCal on Saturday.

Most setups that work well in modified should work just fine in stock or 19 turn.

Yes, this setup is working very well in stock. Some guys are going to 35wt oil in the front for stock, but thats the only change.

Cole Trickle - I have a good setup for both a oneway and spool on low - medium traction carpet for stock, 19t and mod. Let me know if you want me to send you either or both, although I can only send them in an excel format.

"off center" as I understand it, means how the car initially reacts to steering input when going straight at moderate to high speeds (because your weight transfer fore and aft has evened out). So if you are going down the straight away or high speed sections between corners, the initial movement the car makes when giving steering input. This is usually without any sort of braking because one is trying to isolate this reaction without too much weight transfer fore and aft. Many people try to describe this using the
term "twitchy", but this is such an ambiguous term, it is just not defined well enough to use constructively. -Jeff

Hey mini-dub are you by chance heading up to Vancouver Canada for there throphy race.

Hey cole makes total sense. but my question is when do you change the spure gear. I understand pinion now.

hey does anyone know what I would need to mount a set of TFR shock on the MI2. Yes I know/planning on getting the p-dub mounts.

You can use the stock mounts and just slightly ream out the upper mounts on the shocks to make them fit. But you won't be able to use those same upper shock parts when you do get the P-Dub ones since they'll be too loose.

Once you get the P-Dub mounts you wont need anything else, aside from short button head screws to attach the mounts. The shocks come with ball studs.

Cyrrus - I don't know anything about the Trophy race in Vancouver, so as of now it's very unlikely I will be going. We're planning some cool races at Rain City in September. You should come down for those, I know a figure 8 and another enduro is in the works. We use tamiya tt-01's for the fig. 8 so if you don't have one you should pick one up, I think they're like $100. This time we're going to have jumps .

Thanks for the setup

I was just looking at it and I have a few questions.

What is the theory behind raising the inner camber link position on the front?
It's such a big change (raised 4mm), what will that do?

Secondly, is running lighter oil in the front usual or is this just one new idea that is working?
