I'm not sure we feel a huge need for a driveshaft with less steering!

Only a little less going in, but more coming out. I have Losi LCD's mounted, but I used the losi knuckle as well since the axle size was different.

Not all too much really. Try rotating one side of the spool 90, and playing with the end of the joints as well in relation to the opposite end. Also, be sure to lube the joints and blades. This is just side effect of all universals, especially above 15

you can take the cvd apart, dremel the inside of the drive shaft where the axle goes in, you only need to remove just a touch of material, and then bevel the edge. it won't all go away, but it will be better. (I also turn the epa down a touch to the steering arm doesn't touch the C hub)

+1 to that as well. I forgot I had done that.

Hi all
Back to tc from 2years.
First thing is to have a mi4.
I used to be yokomo and tamiya, but this time i want to try this beauty baby!
But, i found most of things are quitly different with what i have got before.
This car get a large range to adjust and very much things to play with.
I have a question about the "link mount bracket".

There are 4 types of the mount:u3526 1groove cf to u3528 3 groove and a u3577 3groove si. I can not find such information about this. Can someone help me to know more? Thanks!

3 groove gives you the longest links. 1 groove gives you the shortest link. You can put shims under the camber plate to take camber cain away.

Hope this helps.

Hey Dusttt, saw your post on DHW thread about running this sunday. Guess you could say they are my home track, my buddy Sparks and I are the only ones running Schuies in the area. He's still running a MI3 and I'm running a MI4, mine is a first USA batch car. I have not broke a piece on my car in 8 or so months of racing. So you don't need to stock much. Plus if you need something to finish the day I probably will have it. My pit space is very easy to find, I'm the only one who shows up with a fifthwheel trailer. Stop by and say hi. Even at the track everyone knows my as Mopar.

Default mi4 setups

I getting back into running touring cars after a long time. I am having a hard time setting the car to run in a consistant manor at which I can build off. I run indoor carpet, rubber 13.5 and out door paved 13.5 rubber.

I have two mi4s one I want to set up for indoors and one outdoors only. I would appreciate a pair of setups to try.

I experimenting with a setup I found on here for carpet 13.5 rubber. I was having a lot trouble keeping the rear end planted. It break loose under breaking and very hard to control.

Thanks.

One last question, I did experiment with a diff up front, that would not cause the rear end to come loose?

Here is a good collection of setups. Where are you located, what tires, etc will all play a big part in which setups will work best. If the car is pretty good, just loose, you might be better posting your current setup and get some suggestions on changes.
