Nice job on the set-up sheet, worth the wait.

Just to add to that. Teemu actually finished on top of his first qualifier today. So it was a strong showing for him. Paul lost the battle in the middle of some traffic that threw him completely off the track early in the race. But his car was on pace with the fastest.

Tested a new set up today and after a few changes suggested by Mo the car got better. I completely changed the oil. pistons, and springs from what I was running before. I will have the set up posted on gearchart.com later on tomorrow. Qualified 4th and finished 3rd in the A main. It was a pretty high speed track and we all know who has the most motor in Norcal The car was very easy to drive and it had good steering. The nats should be really fun especially with all of the factory guys running 19 turn

another positive weekends racing for me, taking the T.Q spot in round 2 and defending it from a strong challenge in round 3 to hold off my main rival on new tires. (one of the closest races Ive had in years) He took me for the lead on 2 occasions and I somehow managed to get him back on the following corner.

By the time the finals rolled around the track had reached over 60 deg C!! my poor RP 30's were no match for new sorex 36, I was able to hold the lead for half of the run until they overheated and dropped off the pace, having to settle for 2nd in all 3 finals.

Car was mega consistent, 4 runs in a row finishing within half a second of my T.Q time, able to run the same pace on 2nd run tires and even 3rd run in the finals. The thing I love most about the E.C is its predictability, you know exactly how a change will effect it, and its been super stable for me every run, never having to sacrifice rear end stability - side bite to gain steering.

all with an out of the box setting (only changed bars to 1.4mm).

Had a small problem this week with my EC, rear driveshaft pin had slipped out and snapped. I have greased it all before i put it in the car and threadlocked the grub screw, which i cannot now get out.

Ive had to buy a new pair of driveshafts as a result. I dont want this to happen again, what have i done wrong? Or what else can i do to prevent this.

Its a fast car however i dont want to be putting 30 driveshafts in a car every few weeks.

Sleighty,
I think someone had this problem a few pages back, I think the thread has not gone right through, so when it feels tight, it's not all the way in. Just check on the new ones that the thread goes all the way. And you shouldn't have a problem.

I just picked up an MI2 EC. I usually run Xray's so I thought I would switch to a new car for awhile. From reading what you guys have said about it, I am really happy with my decision! I have yet to build it and was wondering if you guys have any tips for building it. Your help is greatly apprecitated
