They look like X-ray springs.....that spring combo is what most used at the Novak race and what I use most of the time on carpet with foams on my EC.

The fronts are AE Purple 30's the rears are Xray 22's. PW likes his springs. He has more spring sets than most kits have screws.

Is that the prototype thicker upper and thicker chassis for carpet use..? Or they are the stock Mi3 upper and lower?

PW is running the 2.5mm lower chassis and the standard 2mm mid flex top deck. The 2.5 lower chassis makes the car stiff as a brick.

The kit chassis is 2mm with lots of cutouts for more flex for rubber tire racing.

Cool....just want to know what will the US spec look like. Probably foam use shock towers like the EC, right...?

We will have lower towers for foam racing. There are a few things that you compromise if you try to do it all with one set of towers.

Adrian,
whats the word so far with that layshaft?
Being supported on only one side makes me wonder if it puts undo stress on those bearings or the main support post (#U3125)
Any problems thus far when running the torque of mod motors?
What was the thinking behind only one side support?
I would imagine that extending it to the other bulkhead would not have changed the ease of getting to the spur gear.

BTW, good thing you guys went with pewter, those purple bulkeads were too much.

Scooby - An LRP X11 4.5 turn with the sintered magent is the most brutal mod motor this side if an impact wrench. PW has tested the Mi3 on carpet with foam tires with this motor. I think I saw the car pop a wheelie coming out of a corner once and the lay shaft system survived perfectly

We are very confident in our new layshaft arrangement.

I really hope that they are the same I had 9 bodies painted already for the coming outdoor season here in Europe.

Regards,
any news on that topic?
