Well I was very impressed with rear motor position when I ran first week, then I converted to mid motor, first night went ok but loosing grip on hard power out of corners, changed a few things this week (changed the rear springs to red, 1.5 camber all round and front shocks down one) the car was totally different, massive amounts of corner speed, took full throttle out of corners great, the car this week was much better than the driver. I am totally sold on the mi5 now in mid after seeing how small setup changes can really alter the lap times, waiting for my shortys to arrive then we will try play with weight distribution see how that effects it.
I had a few knocks when trying to run straight though a chicane only thing I damaged was the kit servo horn which stripped. what are you guys running metal? or servo saver?

Hi all,

Im currently running a BD7 in Modified (4.5T with boost).
But spool outdrive and central pulley are not very good. They wear out quickly

Are they more durable on Mi5 ? Driveshaft are durable too ?

Wear has been very good so far on the Mi5 (running in the same class as you). Spool outdrives have replaceable "slider" inserts that are relatively low cost.

Alloy centre pulley should last a long time.

To be fair though, the car has only been out for 6 weeks, so it's kinda early days.

Do the PN SCHG884 DCJ CVD front axles offer any performance or handling benefit in the Mi5?

Wondering because:
--- On one hand in another car (TC6.1) DCJ's smoothed out the front wheel's chattery-drive at larger steering angles very nicely
--- On the other hand the Mi5 has so much steering that I don't need to turn the wheel so far as to induce "the shakes" while driving, even with the Mi5 on a stand and the front wheels at full lock the chatter is minor and, if the Mi5 doesn't really need DCJ's, that's 60 bucks saved.

Is anybody finding that DCJ's in the Mi5 really make any difference in lap times?

Your insights are welcome.

Built up well. On track performance is a work in progress. (running mod on large outdoor asphalt tracks - low -med gip with mega bumps)

Started with Hofer starting setup....will report more soon.
  • No breakages (after some decent crashes)
  • Some play in front castor block (no more than other cars) - taken out with 0.1mm shim
  • Reshimmed diff and spool with 0.1mm each side instead of supplied shims
  • added purple bling parts
Where did you get the purple body post holders??

i dont see the absolute need for double joint axles.. I've had them but changed back to the steel drive shafts. Spec-r shafts are just not as durable in my opinion and have alot of play comparing to other brands..

They are actual Schumacher parts (I got them locally from Action RC - local Schumacher distributor).

The frt body height adjusters are Roche (6mm body height adjusters) from Roche HK.

The rr body supports are RIDE are got them locally as well. (when I used to run another purple car!)
