Alrite mate,

Yea i ran it exactly kit setup. It seemed fine with 7 and 6 droop, the only thing ive noticed is that the car rolls alot. Im gonna try raising the roll centre to keep it flatter through the turns by running 1mm under the pivot blocks all round.
After a few runs i went 1 grade harder on the front roll bar, 1 grade softer on the rear and layed the front shocks in 1 hole on the shocktower, just to get a little less front end. Ideally i would have altered the springs to gold fronts and silver rears and kept the rollbars the same all round, but i havent got a spring set yet.
Let me know what you think to the car once youve ran it.
Cheers Phil.

I was thinking about this last night, official support for this car is pants. The only site that offers information is HPI Japan - but why not HPI Europe or USA? The Hotbodies website still has the car listed as Ďcoming sooní?????

Iím hoping that Mirage will follow CML and have a section on there website for set-ups, manuals etc.

Hereís hoping.

HB is suppose to be a HPI company and we get no support from HPI USA or even HB themselves...

Did anone have trouble with the rear diff during assembly? It seems very sloppy. I took it apart a dozen times and it doesn't seem right. There is too much play in it. I put it together exactly as the instructions stated but I'm about to pull my hair out.
The rest of the assembly went extremely smooth. Anyone out there with ideas about this diff?
