Hey guys

Have you got any ideas on how i can get my Mi2 to go faster, i have tryed everything but it just dont seam to have the edge. I handels well when i set it up its just not competative, i have gave my mate it and he put all his stuff in it and it was the same, the car just doesnt seam like a competative car atall and its really doing my head in. cant wait till the EC comes out hope its better that the Mi2

Cheers kenny

What is it not doing for you, I will assume cornering? Give a idea of what you don't like we will see what we can do to help.

well once its set up the cornering is fine and everything like that it just doesnt seam to have the ability or edge over other drivers, its hard to explane with out actualy seeing or driving the car for yourself but it just doesnt seam to want to move when i want it too when my old car did and it still does compared to the mi2 it just doesnt seam like a competative car in general

Kenny - Go back a few pages and try Weylin Rose's Mi2 setup. Everyone running it is pretty dominant right now.

Your setup may feel really good but it may be really slow at the same time.

How fresh is your car? Worn arms, c-hubs and rear hub carriers can make a car feel dead and unresponsive. Are all of your bearings smooth and free? Hub brearings can get rough and bind after a few crashes.

Thanks for the support man. I plan on driving this car as hard as I can this weekend. Must have some fun as well.

Note the new high grade yellow seal bearings, new motor mount and new lightened diff housings that take normal non flanged bearings.

Note the new drive train

Hey Adrian, Has the geometry of the new carpet car changed? I really like the look of the new car but as you know, all Fred and I run is Foam tire racing and the MI2's was at a disadvantage. I think on rubber tires the car was as fast if not faster than everything else out there. I am going to check out Fred's car and probably order one for the spring IF changes were made to make the car better on foam tires.
