Thanks Owen blackedoutrevo sold it to me and I have spared nothing in trying to keep it immaculate. I scratched the bottom a bit trying to dial it in for a race. That is as far as the scratches went. I really dont want to sell it but I hate seeing it in a box sitting.

Smaller shock tower, 2 more inner holes. Looking a lil more rear traction. I'll send a 10mm screw through the bulkhead and mount the body posts. Just another idea of mine.

Which ballcups and ballstuds are you using? I think currently the stock ones are awesome, but hate to pop them off for maintenance.

Personally, the Mi4 shock towers need a touch more meat under the shock mount holes. I would think taking that amount of material out from between the bulkheads would cause more upwards flex of the shock tower?

They look like early Xray ones

Hey Mark506, what I found that gave more rear bite was narrowing the bulkhead connectors. The car comes with the med. ones and you can get the narrow ones from Schumacher. I just narrowed the on my own a little bit at a time. Also, not glueing the any of the c/f will allow a tiny bit more flex. I seal all the c/f for safety but the links I leave un-glued for the extra flex.

I'm after directions on a Mi4-LP set-up for MuchMore Absolute V 36's on asphalt painted with an abrasive high grip surface repair substance. I have started with Chris Grainger TITC set-up and find it very taily through tighter corners. BUT the bigger problem is the tyre wear, one run.
I have a local supported driver going to give me direction and help. But would like to collect as much information to help me learn.

The pieces of carbon fiber that connect the layshaft mount to the rear bulkhead.

Seen on the schumacher site:

Unknown to most was the fact that some of the team were running a later version of the Mi4, the new Mi4CX. Full details on the replacement for the Mi4LP are due out shortly but we expect the car to be out around November time.
