How did the car feel before you made those changes? not enough steering or turn in? Spun around in circles?

i never realy sufferd from to much understeer. it was just a very lose car. bt the rear manly i would go into a corner on power then drop of power then put power on and it would just go very tail happy. but just a low grip set up should do the trick

Hey Don! Long time no see. You coming up for the Nats (carpet and asphalt) this year in Nor Cal? Let me know if there is anything I can do for you to help out. I'm about 30 mins north of the carpet nats and 30 mins south of the asphalt nats...Married life still treating you well? Drop me an email sometime.

i ran my ec last friday on slippy floor with mini pins with the standard setup and it was pretty good all it sufferd from was a bit of off power understeer. The only change i have made to it was to change the rear wheelbase to medium short on the inside

Default Mi2EC spring adjusters....

Anyone looking to replace the gold adjusters that come with the new shocks can use the Purple ones that are on the HPI Pro-4 and Cyclone shocks they are a perfect match. I just got a set and they work great and match the rest of the purple on the car.

Damn Kevin,
Do you always have to have the sharpest looking car?
I guess that I will have to replace those darn black Tamiya ones that I have, with the HPI's
Later
