Bulkheads - The Mi3 bulkheads are new open design parts with no bearing caps like other cars. You do not have to move the shock towers or camber links to get at the diff. The T2 and Cyclone cannot do this.

Roll Center - Like the T2 the you can make changes in track width but where the T2 is limited to 2 blocks to change roll center the Mi3 has a 2 piece suspension mount that allows unlimited roll center adjustment.

Steering - The new steering system is amazing. We havent begun to really show what it can do yet.

You dont have to remove camber links or anything on the T2...just take the 4 screws out. Although it's not nearly as easy as taking a camber link screw out

The T2 also has 3 roll center adjustments...Not 2.

Not going to argue with the steering statement!!

What about the arms? Don't they look kinda weak for carpet/foam?
Other than that it looks very nice...

I'm curious about the additional cost of this also. I'd pay a few more $$$ if the chassis had the battery slots precisely beveled and the edges smoothed and sealed.
here is the problem with them doing the beveled battery slots One is the cost to do it the second is the battery war that's aways going on if the beveled the slots for 4200 then 4600 come out and they are bigger now you have to rebeveled the battery slots or even if lipo's are come in to play you don't even have to bevel them.

I think they did a great job going the extra mile to get the car to work with 4,5,6 and lipo's.

Adrian-Could you please explain the "Dual-Axis" hing pin mounts... Not sure how they work. Also, it was posted that the design reduces tourque on the bulkheads when adjusting toe...how is that?

Just curious.......

I think PW explained it on the first page:

I posted these comparisons in another thread, but I thought they might be of interest here since this is where all the discussion is. You guys passed the Phi thread in like 20 minutes in terms of total posts. I tried to get the scale and perspective right, but it's a little off.

I know what dual axis means...just curious how it actually works on this car. How is it adjusted? Is it a screw and shims, is the block flipped to change roll center?

Goetz will have his own car... Chris Goetz Plaster Cast Edition!

butter, both the roll center and the toe-in adjustments are changed by using shims. the r/c though, uses shims to lower it, instead of raise it, as is typically thought of. the highest roll center will be attained by bolting the two pin blocks together w/o any shims. therefore, there are no optional blocks necessary to tote around.

I am definitely impressed by this car.

My question is, if this car is very stiff (similar to 007US stiff), isn't that a disadvantage for rubber-asphalt? I guess you guys have tested it, but it seems like you've decided that ideal stiffness for that scenario is higher than many other companies.
