I just wanted to thank Mo for his tremendous help yesterday at the track ...my KO Helios radio, for lack of a better description "blew up", right as qualifying was starting. Mo was willing to let me use his by swapping out our spektrum modules and letting me setup a profile in one of his unused models. ...thanks again Mo!!

Does anyone know if the bulkhead holes on the EC chassis match up with the bulkead holes on the Mi2 chassis?

You don't have time for questions...you have bodies to paint.....LOL I'm with Jon on this one. All of the holes in the chassis are slightly different to fit the new drive train and suspension feature's.

PW- Car was better than before and your set up worked fine. I changed a couple of things here and there to fit my driving style. I'm having a problem with my steering but I think I solved that problem (after the race unfortunately ) I think because of the TQ orange the two stage jaco's don't offer any advantage to the normal tire's. Then again once the nats roll around and there are a ton of people on the track and the bite is higher than club race level they might off a slight advantage. Mo took home the win in mod and I was only able to place 5th in 19 turn. We will go at it again on Wednesday. I plan on trying the same set up but without the low roll centers.

Donny and I ran at SoCal last night and both of us made some major changes to get the car to work with a oneway on that track. (A oneway is almost a must for whatever reason on this track.) We've come up with something to work with. Maybe another trip or two to fine tune it but we think we've got something to work with. SoCal is a very odd track. Many times things work there that never work elsewhere and vise versa. So I'm not too sure how well the setup we're working on will work anywhere else but if anyone wants it, let me know.

Yea, pretty good starting point. I'm gonna try and go next Saturday and maybe even Tuesday if I'm lucky. Didn't have much time yesturday to work everything out since we got there late. So, considering, it went pretty well. Was not too far off the leaders. I think it was maybe a half a lap down, with starting from the back.

We got to get it a little smoother and flow with steering. Just a bit twitchy off center. Both Jon and my ideas got us where we are at this point in a very short time.

Does Schumacher USA still stock parts for the "old" Mi2? I want to continue to race mine as I have not had it that long, but I want to make sure I can still get parts for it.
Thanks
