I drove an Mi5 today. I found it had loads of steering but a little loose on power...

Still, I was impressed...

Its a strange car, as people said its got loads of steering and quite a lairy rear end, wondering if the mid motor conversion will sort that out and plant the car just a little bit more.

hell i even ran it in the wet on sorex 28XG's and it stuck to the track...surprisingly well, this was with no special wet setup changes at all.. just wacked it on a wet track.

I have not tried this, but Hofer wrote that it will provide a little better front end grip and stability under breaking

The uk boy are cutting the rears also , it just adds grip in general as the wishbone flexes more was told the prototypes had wish bones like that but was decided that it could lead to lots of screws coming through the chassis

To help the rear ones I have seen a brace from the ball studs like two strut braces to aid in stopping the rear screws pulling though

Think the front are ok to do as they r on allow screws
