I thought it was strange that AMain removed the Mi4LP kits from their site, and they were out of stock at Schumacher UK.

I wonder if it's basically what's on Grainger's car up above.

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.
I suggest you, to test with 2.5 mm top deck, and with 2.5 mm chassis inclusive, i don´t like to much, but work very well.
You can put more shims in camber links, 2 mm front underbraket, and 0 rear.
HPI soft srpings, blue - silver, with good oil 45-50 real WT.
And 1 mm longer rear, 3 mm front rear arms, cure the rear problem.
The new steering, is smooth, for me best from the old one, but i see in the new car, go with the old, and more UK drivers too, i like the new steering but the setup need a litle mods.

Chris prefers old steering system over new one so he will stick with that even if the car will have different steering system. From what I heard most drivers preferred new one over old one.

No, but now I have 2 Mi4s (1 an LP) and I would like a couple for spares as well...
Want some spares because it would not be possible to switch back and forth between the 2 systems in a day because I have shoe-goo'd the servo to the chassis.

Anyone have a full set (front and rear) of aluminum hinge pin blocks they'd like to part with cheap? New or used in good shape.

Stormer is still around $450, I think. A-Main was down to $399 before they took them down. I think mine was around $430 in Hong Kong with some shrewd bargaining from my wife's mom.

There's a lot of them around used for $300 or less with spares, though.

What are you referring to about the a-arms? The Mi4LP comes with CF ones.

tamale - countersunk and black anodized. however, not cheap. they would come with tool steel hingepins as well due to the nature of the design.

Is anyone running a ballistic? I just got a 25.5, and the spinny ring around the can doesn't seem like it's going to cooperate well with the motor clamp.

Mount a little on, and a little off the ring.
