Just had my first race weekend with the Evo, gotta say, it's one awesome car. Design - build - racing... fabulous!

I used the 59T spur on a 17.5 setup. Very smooth on cornering and fast.

Hey guys, where is everyone measuring droop on the Evo in particular?? Under the arm, under the setscrew or the middle of the pin. On the standard asphalt setup it says 4.5 front and 3.5 rear for droop. Thanks

it is an uptravel measurement, how much the chassis moves from ride height to right before the wheels lift off
droop blocks reading (4.5) vs. uptravel (4.5) DOES not mean the same.

According to the setup sheet they are measuring droop under 10mm blocks. I just need to know where they are putting the gauge, under the arm, under the setscrew or measuring for the center of the hinge pin.

Hey Pete..

Depends on the driver writing the setup usually, however most use the point under the moulds where the shock ball stud is mounted when using the 10mm blocks. hope it helps ..!

Ugh...

What a beautiful machine Schumacher has developed. My very first sedan was a S.S.T 2000 with a transverse battery layout. I've always had a soft spot for Schumacher cars. However, their Mi series with their strange roll center plates turned me off from running their cars.

It's great to see Schumacher designers have moved away from the roll center plates and running a standard roll center setup. I would say that's the only thing "standard" looking on the Mi5 Evo .

I very well might have to sell off my BD7 for one of these bad boys. Pardon me while I wipe the drool from my chin

Actually, I think most go from under the outer pin, I know thats where I measure from.
One thing to note is that the wishbone plastics are thinner on the new car, especially on the outer hinge pin locations (mostly due to the 2.5mm outer pins now used), and as such, need to be a little careful transferring droop settings from the Mi5 across.
Having checked it with the axle height method, 5.5 on the evo (by gauge, under the outer pin) is close to 5 on the old car.

Last weekend the Nationals where held. It was an oppertunity to test the Mi5 Evo against the National field. I can only say one thing. Awesome:



http://www.redrc.net/2014/07/dutch-e...-rd3-report-2/

Car was really easy and really fast on this difficult low grip track. An awesome car which was really easy to set-up.
Set-up can be found here:

Talking Mi5 evo parts compatibility

Hi all,

Does anyone know if the MI5 Evo Rear Hub Carriers (U4548) and the MI5 Evo Micro Caster Block 4deg (U4549) can be used on the MI5?

Ive heard yes and no, so I'm unsure and just want to know before I purchase some.

TIA.

Mi5evo use smaller pin(2.5mm) than mi5, they might work if you enlarge the hole. I have both car but no spare part to test it out for you.

Yes they both can be used but you will have to ream the pin hole out to 1/8 as the evo has 2.5m pins and the mi5 has 1/8 pins.
