Thanks.
Not the same, but they also work; just don't mix and match

You did sort of take over the interview. The fact that you did that and only talked about one of the many interesting Mi3 features is rather impressive ;>

You're a well-spoken guy, Adrian. You should be hosting that show.

But in that interview, the host seemed almost scared to interupt you. It was priceless!

It was a good interview though.

I never knew the molecular structure of a diff ball until I worked with Adrian!

Couple quick questions:

1. What is the purpose of sanding the diff rings with 600 grit sandpaper? And if it makes such a difference, where the h*ll can I buy it?

2. What springs are you all using? I see some people are using Xray, some Tamiya. Why not the Schumacher springs?

More questions to come as I keep building. But so far the craftsmanship on this car is amazing. Best of any car i've ever built.

Sanding the diff rings will make sure they're perfectly flat and smooth and to take out any groove that may have developed on them. I use the Schumacher springs for the most part. People use different manufacturer springs because they may be in between two Schumacher spring rates.

Most of us are running the kit standard white springs.

Thanks Jon - do you know where I can pick up some 600 grit sandpaper?

Last time I bought it I got it at a hobby shop. But I'm sure you can get it from any Home Depot or Lowes. Places like that.
