1- I loosen the center pulley too so there's less stress on the belt when pulling the rear diff out

2 - I ground down the little silver nub on the bottom rear of the top deck and also rounded off the edges on the battery slots so they sit just a touch lower. Also you can't have any shrink wrap on the cells as it is a pretty close fit. The idea is to get your cells to just slide right in with no pressure on the bulkhead or topdeck If your cells are bent and banged up you may have to rebuild them to get them flat again

Gotta give Corally a shot...So far my MI3 has been doing very well, but I'd like to get another car to test and compare. Corally and Schumacher are right here in my home state a couple of hrs away and support should be really good, as well as parts support.

I had to grind down that silver nub too. Batteries are a tight fit. Even with the silver nub filed down make sure you check the screw length since the screw extends past the silver nub and hits the cells. My cells are double shrink wrapped, but with nub grind down they fit and I didn't need to file the battery slots. I'm sure every kit and different packs may have close fits though and other alterations may be in order.

Yea his car was right on. I have to say it's by far the easiest car to push hard and still be fast with, and that was my first run on the car, so it will only get better. Great job guys!

Thanks guy´s, i think we should have a topic where we writh down what we have done to the car, because like the situation of the bateries touching the upperdeck and block causes a lot of tweak in the car and it became really dificult to drive the car. My first race with the car was not the best because the car had stearing for right side corners and don´t have stearing for left side, so i think if we leave a topic in Team and Company discussion (Corally PHI), so we right down the smalles ajustements we do to the car, so we can get better, thanks people.

I'm proud / privileged to have one.

The only issue I've had is (running rubber/carpet) rear "kickout" on power out of the corners.

So this week I've lengthened the rear camber links and "leaned in" the top of the rear shocks one hole.

Hope that helps?

Any thoughts?

make sure your tires are glued properly and check your rear toe. If the changes you made dont get the car to where you need it, then try increasing rear toe in a bit...if its at 2 deg, try 2.5, then 3...you also need to check your rear oil weight and springs. Try first using a bit softer rear springs. THen you can also check your swaybars- try a stiffer front swaybar...

you may also want to back off your front droop screws a little to give more up travel and allow more weight transfer to the back

Todd, Are you running a spool/oneway or diff? Is the rear end slow to come around in the middle of the turn, or is it good until you hit the throttle coming out?
