Am just about to make an order for a Mi5, but are there some spareparts that are recomended to order at the same time. Was there something about some screws which was intended to brake, and then nice to have in spares, og what about c hubs and so ?

The option parts like Hoffer setup I have in mind, it is only normal spares I am thinking about.

Thanks in advance, can't wait to get my Mi5

The only things I've used in spares are:

U4236 M3x10 CSK Alloy screws (the breakable ones)
U4256 Front knuckles
U3131 Alloy spacers (You lose these when you break U4236)
U4270 King pin and spacers (Haven't lost/broke these but I could see loosing them if you damage U4256)
U3814 Slider Insert (these are just a good idea to keep on hand and keep in good shape)

I've broken nothing else after some really hard hits getting used to the Mi5's wicked fast steering. Very impressed.

Consider:

U4257 - 4* micro caster blocks ( no actual C hub on this car )
U4270- King pin and spacer
U4256 - Front hub carriers
U4255- rear hub carriers
U4236- M3 x 10 mm alloy csk screws ( they can shear on heavy impact )


The others may offer some others things I may've missed..

Hope it helps ...

..Phil

I'd go with what was stated above, the cars seem to be very durable and well put together. I couldn't decide which set of spares I needed so I did this:

For the picky builders out there (me)...
- build quality is near perfect
- everything is very free (a little too much play maybe but way better than too tight)
- drivetrain is perfect, ultra free and everything runs true including the wheel hexes - love the layshaft pulley and spur design
- shocks are awesome
- leading design in all areas
- very fast out of the box (I'm racing blinky stock on carpet)
- easiest car to tune and work on by far

Love the Schumacher designed rear diff - hope that Shumacher does the same for the front but the stock front spool is sick.

Very close to getting a second for VTA and emergency spare parts back up... VBC and ARC are it's contenders for me.

Yeah....that's the most perplexing thing about the build. Can't understand that amid the midst of designing the rear gd, how come one for the front couldn't be? Just weird; maybe they're under contract with SpecR or something. Truthfully I will be running a spool or reg. diff until then....

We here have been fielding allot of emails on this topic of a proper front diff being that the rear is so nice. When we spoke with Mark at Schumacher last Tuesday, he indicated that there were no immediate plans to develop a front diff for the Mi5. Spec-R will be the only option for the front.. at least for now !

Juhuu, just placed m order for an Mi5, and with the Surgested upgrades and spares. Can't wait till I get my hands on it.. It is interesting to compare this to my current Yokomo BD5Wxi, which I think drives like a dream.
