the short arms are way stronger because the webbing is beefed up. i would call any of the standard length arms obsolete at this point. they'll run fine, but they are brittle unless you run the medium flex versions, which have tons of flex.

stick with the above. if you're breaking them, you can go with the short-med flex versions.

u3551 front
u3552 rear
Thanks !!!

I'm running med flex ones like the rear bite they give me. Not big fan of rear shorts for carpet because the shimming needed to make width makes weaker around bulkhead and hinge pin mounting area. I rather break an arm not pivot blocks or bulkhead screws in bulkheads but thats just me

I see it now on the sheet, I check the screws often to make sure their not bent, for asphalt I tend to run the car narrower anyway.

Thanks for setup Kenny, is there some interesting ideas, this for low grip?
I think to test, in small, low grip asphalt track. I see similar things to our asphalt setup.
I have a good base setup, for long, medium grip asphalt tracks.

Greetings, Luis C.

I'm going to set my car up narrow this year. I always ran the Mi3 wider. Not sure if I'm going to put the car back to the LP for Jackson or put the 2.5 mm regular Mi4 chassis on it. See you in 2 weeks.

Luis,
this setup will be pushy in low grip. Funny thing is its not far off what I'm running in asphalt either. Body, top deck, drop and toe are only things I change for asphalt .

Can someone to have a web store address to me?
Because our local RC stores are pool in Mi4 parts, all you can do is waiting and waiting...
So, please give an advise or a web address to buy such parts that I need!
Thanks!!!
