The suspension mounts also allow infinite adjustment of track and roll center. Other cars can adjust track but they are limited to 1 or 2 optional blocks or an alternate mounting hole on the bulkheads for roll center changes. The Mi3 has no such limitation.

The camber links are similar in design. The inner camber link ball is infinitely adjustable in height and width relative to the chassis center line. Others cars let you move the ball up and down with shims but you are limited to 3 or 4 mounting holes. The Mi3 has no such limitation.

Like PW said the cantilevered layshaft is very strong. This design feature was one of the first items tested over a year ago. It is very short and 5mm in diameter so it is just about stiff enough to stand on.

It looks great very uniuqe design, Is that designed to fit 4800 lipo's?
And the lay shaft looks the easiest I've seen to change a spur.
talk about targeting what the consumer want's good job fella's.
Thats thing looks as easy to build as is its tunability.

Yes i understand the bulkheads made in such a way for 4800 LiPo to fit without mods.

I really dig all the attention to detail on this car, like the way the rear body posts are adjusted with a set screw through the rear shock tower, the little pins in the aluminum holders for the belt tension eccentrics, the way you can adjust the camber link mounts with shims. Very good job on the engineering guys.
