It wont happen. Dream on buddy.

And why 10.5? That poor tekin cant handle a low turn motor with you driving? mods supposed to be the class where your equipment doesnt really matter, with 10.5 and turbo you need the same crap you do for stock. Which is what were sick of at SWR lol

Really STNLST??? Please say its so!

Personally I love superstock 13.5, but would rather have a group running 10.5 with the advanced timing motors.

AKA mod! Seriously, a few people were running 10.5's in mod at the Snowbirds.

Haha last time you ran you got lapped. Just remember that

And I have my car working way better now

But anyhow, about mi4's. Has anyone tried milling out the out drive slot to fit a xray blade and cvd? Maybe even try those ecs cvd's? I know some people love them. Others hate them.

I am in teh market for a new car and just wanted to know how you schumacher MI4 guys are doing compared to the Xray T3. The reason for asking is parts availability. I am in orlando florida, so parts from schumacher are easily to get. Xray support is also great but there is a big price difference.

I came from having 2 T2 007's. I really like the MI4. It builds nice, support from Schumacher is always great. Parts are almost always shipped out same day.

What surface are you running on? I think for the most part (Again, for the most part) the Mi4 is a little better on asphalt than it is carpet. The Xray is a carpet car, with a great carpet team. I know Mike Hanes and Chris Goetz do great on carpet with the Mi4. So the possibilities truly are limitless.

I had to choose between the T3 and the Mi4. Chose the Mi4. I run little carpet and a lot more asphalt.

I'll give you that but I had radio issue's while testing some stuff out I don't feel that will be the case the next time out. Time to have a battle of the once purple but now black cars....LOL

What's wrong with using the blades that Schumacher offers? Are you just looking to use the spring steel cvd? Billy has all the equipment to do the milling.

The Schmacher drive shafts bend really easy. We are looking for other options as of rite now. I'm even considering having some sort of system machined to use the new Kyosho shafts with the balls, or something similar.
