If you're looking to buy a new car, yes. It's worth every penny. I have yet to hear someone say they liked the regular Mi2 more than the EC.

I'd have to say that it's 2-3 steps up from the original MI2. Much easier to drive fast. It seems to suit an agressive driving style and a laid back style. Man I can't wait until the first asphalt race. I saw the improvements made on carpet so I can only imagine how it will be out doors.

We are using the Schumacher white springs and I believe they are 14lbs.

A one way is good but only if you don't have to brake. I mainly run a spool.

Most of the setup sheets suggest white springs on their asphalt setups for the EC, don';t knwo how this translates for the older Mi2.

The white spring set up works on the regular MI2 as well. This is basically the set up that we were running towards the end of the asphalt season. It's really easy to drive and it's a very fast set up. I can't wait to run it with the EC in a couple of weeks.
