Not sure how much better they will be, since nobody has them yet, except maybe Paul.
They will work in your MI2 eveywhere but the outdrive bearings, as the ones on the EC are unflanged.

Is it ok to mount the rx on the upper deck chassis? And does the belt tension have to be tight when running stock or there should be some slack?
Just got hold of a used mi2 and the car looks sweet! Can't wait to test it on our track.

The yellow seal bearings are the new standard bearing. We are using the same part numbers as the original blue bearings but they have more finely machined races and higher grade balls.

If you want some just the regular bearings from your kits parts list and you will get the new bearings.

We go out of our way to get everything low.If you have to its OK but it not ideal. It would be better to mount the receiver on its side. I have seen guys with Tekin G11's, LRP Sphere's and Novak GTB's in their Mi2's and their receivers fit on the lower chassis if you put them on their side.

Thanks for the tips.

marcosj - thanks for showing your kit.

Im using a novak gt7, so its a bit crowded, but i'll find a way to mount it on the lower chassis. Thanks. By the way, is the teemu riser plates thicker than the box stock riser plates?

I used to use a GT7 in my MI2. I had to mount my reciever on its side also, it is a tight fit with the GT7 though. Mount your speedo as close to you motor as you can, then mount your reciever.

once upon a time i ran the gt7 in my car as well and was able to get everything to fit nicely with room to spare. One thing you may want to try is to mount the receiver parallel with its back to the belt If that makes sense. That way the your weight it more centered and you'll have more than enough room for your speedo and anything else. I can post a pic later if you like.

Congrats to Paul Wynn for Winning the Open Mod Florida Series and Steve McNichols for Winning the 19T Florida Series. Both drivers were absolutely Dominant with their Mi2's.

We didn't win stock this year because last year Tony Padilla won stock with his Mi2 and he stepped up to 19T and Mod for 2005

Hopefully this years Stock winner wont be a Sand Butter...er...Bagger and will step up to 19T and Mod for 2006.
