I'm not sure if this one is on gearchart.com, but I know it's the one we've been using. On this setup you run the stock riser plate in the front but if you want more steering, you can take that out and replace it with 1mm shims to lower the mount. This will lower the roll center. This setup shows the car with the stock 2mm riser in the rear as well. Personally I didn't like that and raised it an additional 1mm. But copy this setup exactly and start there. If you're running it on rubber tires on carpet, put a one-way in it.

Anti-squat is when the front of the hinge pins is higher than the rear. So if you want to put in anti-squat, start with just .5mm under the front but don't go over 1mm.

Hey guys...I see a few request for my foam setup, but nothing has really been posted because my chassis was using most of the new Mi2EC specs

I will try and get something posted for the standard Mi2 spec or BMI spec

Hey guys. PW sent me the setup. The setup he ran was a little different because he essentially had the EC car. But this should work really well for you guys.

Not really sure, but I think we have talked them into really go all out with the specs and that might delay the release slightly I think there are only about 4 or 5 things carrying over from Mi2....Can you say Mi3
