I've tested the new steering last Saturday on carpet, better feeling also for me with the unit, the car is more consistent.

This weekend I hope to test it on asphalt

What spareparts should I have in my pitbag for the "old" Mi5? Going to my first race with this car soon.

Which parts break easy, and what wears quickly?

The only thing I have broken myself is the steering rack (twisted out of bearings in a crash).

All inputs are appreciated!

Front hubs ,Kingpins and bearings

Kingpin only weak point Broke one after many crashes but when they do u might loose the bearings it passes through and sometimes u need dremel to get the kingpin out out the hub and that's not always in ur tool kit at the track

Make sure you've got replacement aluminum screws for the front-end too.

for my mi4cxl can i put the center bracket for the steering as is in the first pic. the reason I am asking this is because with the mi5 steering arms. they are causing my center stear to be to far forward. I also like the looks of the evo system over the cxl. also the steering arms are longer then the standard mi4cxl with no adjustment. Is there a shorter arm option? thanks for the replys!
