He drives tighter....everywhere. He lets off sooner and brakes earlier than I do and this reduction in speed makes him not blow wide in the corners...like I do.

I run with 62.5mm shock length all round and using a droop gauge I set it to 2 on the rear and 4 on the front. Not really sure what that converts into mm's?
I am using the low shock towers and TRF shocks. And although I have not tried it, I can run the same droop setting all the way round.

I finally converted to brushless on the weekend!
Nosram 4 star, better than I had expected, but took a few runs to get used to but once dialled in I felt it was equal to a decent 7. but without having to true and change brushes every run it was heavenly!

No going back for me now, more time to wrench on the car and talk shit in the pits.

Hi Guys

Currently running a EC (rubber version) with very standard settings, on tarmac using rubbers and very happy wit it and teh setup we have.

This weekend we are racing somewhere different again tarmac but we may have to use foams. What changes would I have to make for foams. Presume less camber and maybe one stiffer spring - anything else?

Hey Matt,

Did your "Anonymous Source" tell you that he has shaved his head? I think he lost a bet to somebody......was it you?

Hi Heavy, I would recommend removing the suspension riser plates both front and rear, with the front arm blocks either flat on the chassis or raised just 1mm or so, with the rear arms blocks equal in height or 1mm higher.

Springs is dependant on grip level of track and surface (bumps etc) but 1-2 rates harder than kit would be a good starting point. and possibly the removal of sway bars.

These have been some general findings of mine running foams on the previous Mi2, I havent as yet run foams on the E.C.

perhaps some of the U.S team who have more experience with the foam car can comment, on their general setup changes from rubber to foam.
