Better yet...find out what the locals at your track are running. That tire will be the best choice.

What are we using here for the battery tie downs??? I used double sided Velcro this weekend and the battery kept falling out of the side of my car.

Battery tape, unless new battery holders are made at some point it seems to be the only option.

Thanks Leonard, that is what I was refering too, that the top 3 notch link was not mentioned.
On another note, yes foams are used on the MI5 here in Aust on carpet. That is the tyres used at Highway Hobbies carpet track and at the ACT Titles that are 19, 20 and 21 Jul. Carpet at ACT Titles is industrial carpet and no traction compound allowed.

Hope to test the car on foams then.

BTW,

Have the parts on order to test Hofers setup out.

Later,

Calvin.

Racing tonight. Should have a big group of insanely fast sedan drivers at the track tonight. Austin Harrison, Cory Parsons, TJ Bradley, Roberto Falcon....all national A-main guys.

We had a national A-main guy at my race last Sunday. I TQ'd and was in the lead when my servo started misbehaving. Replaced the Savox with a Futaba and now ready for battle again. I have most of Hofer's carpet setup on the car and it is certainly fast yet relatively easy to drive. I couldn't ask for a better car.

Thats great!

How much of Hofer's setup do you have in the rear? With the 3 dink camber plate and the 2 notch rear hub plate the link is as short as it can be. Add the 2.5 deg rear arms and the car is very free in the rear. Too much so for low grip. I was able to get it more stable easily though.

I have everything EXCEPT the 2 1/2 degree rear wishbones. The car is too stuck, and doesn't want to rotate as well s I think it should. My new 2 1/2 degree arms will be here this week. I can't wait to try them out.

Same here, everything but the 2.5 degree wishbones since I haven't found them available anywhere yet. We are low-medium grip so the change might not be needed. I am short the 3 dink camber plate in the front, other than that it's an exact match. I will be swapping to the Schumacher springs (whatever rate is close to the Yokomo pink/blue) this weekend and see how things go. Hopefully I will have time to build up by second Mi5 and start getting some MOD practice in for IIC.

For Carpet you will need the following parts

Speed Secret 2 notch Rear hub top plates
Speed Secret 1 pip 2.5 deg rear arms
YOKYS-1565L - Yokomo Pro Shock Spring (Long Type - Pink)
YOKYS-14575L - Yokomo Pro Shock Spring (Long Type - Blue)
Some 0.5mm and 1mm shims.

For Asphalt

Run the same setup with the kit Green springs front and rear. This is all noted on the setup.

If the grip is low go to the kit no notch rear hub top plate for more rear stability. You can also got to 3deg rear toe if you need more rear stability on turn in. The higher the grip the less rear toe you need.
You have part #s for the Schumacher parts? Thanks!
