That's unacceptable PDF up by the end of the day or no Stockton for you tomorrow It's going t be a blast. Changed the set up slightly to try something else. I will be testing a couple of different things.

Scotty lost the challenge, not many pics, RobertV is slipping in his duties, we can't get pictures on time, race reports on time, plus he plays nasty music, we're very disappointed in him hw should have to wear the mullet just cause he's failing so much! ...but I'm digressing, the only picture we have is the one below, and I think Scotty misunderstood where he was supposed to wear the mullet??? http://www.deepwest.com/rasta/RC/sco...the-mullet.jpg

The Cyclone guy had to wear the mullet and then pulled a my car doesn't work for the start of his B Main. Only the MI2EC made the main out of the mullet challengers It sat 2nd on the grid We'll see what happens after today. Scotty may or may not show up to wear his mullet. Heck....the pics Harsh posted doesn't even have a mullet in it The EC is the real deal. The set up we started out with was killer. I'm trying the changes that Mo made last weekend for mod in 19 turn today.

Kevin K/Euge...other Mi2EC owners.

Just thought I'd help you guys out real quick. Here's a editable PDF of the setup sheet that was posted. Not sure if I have it set 100% but thought it might get you going before someone did another finalized version.

Default Track width

I've been thinking about the difference in track width on the EC for quite some time now without coming to any sort of conclusion.

A standard build EC comes with about 188-189mm front width and 185-186mm rear width. The difference was not at all as big on the standard MI2. So first of all, what the benefits of having a much more narrow rear end? Anyone tried not using the shims in the front to decrease front width? (Yes you can remove them without having the wheels touching the front hub carrier.)

What are your thoughts on this? I can imagine increased front width gives a bit more reaction when changing direction, though I doubt any more is needed since that was one of the main strengths in the MI2 in my oppinion. If this however is the case, how does it affect mid-corner speed?

These numbers are with Schumacher U2500 wheels.

The tires you are running will effect how much bite you will want from your diffs ... are you running rubber or foam?
