Arms are the same, rear hubs are different, but will work in a pinch although they will make the car too wide. Front hubs are also different, but like the rears will work in a pinch as they will also widen the car.

BTW, Here is the packaging

See Jon and I have the exact opposite views. We agree that you should start in the middle though LOL. Try one pack in the middle, one in stood up, and one laid down. One thing I will say is try to keep the front and rear as close as you can unless you are just interested in fine tuning.

Jon, most of my setup experience with the MI2 was for stock, foam tires on asphalt. It's a little different. I also ran with as much castor as possible too.

Yeah, foam tires on asphalt is a lot different. I was looking at the spring rates you were mentioning and they seemed really stiff. I rarely run anything higher than 17# on asphalt with rubber tires. And I've never liked anything but 4 of castor on this car.

yeah i think the width of the foam tire and the amount of bite you get allows you to dive into the turns super hard where normally with rubber you would be all over the place. I do remember trying my foam tire setup on rubber tires though and believe it or not it was not bad. I guess it's just all in how you wheel it. When I ran open Mod in the Trinity ORL races with the car that was on foam and I was able to stick the car anywhere...it was just driver error that would keep me from winning.

rubber on carpet should actually be close to foam on ashpalt...assuming its high bite. Hey try it...what do you have to loose but a practice run. but if your dialed I want some credit for the setup LOLOLOL
