Just a little update for you guys trying to contact us via email and phone today;

A semi truck backed into a transformer behind our building and will not have power at the office today (08-10-09). Were hoping to have the power restored by tomorrow morning but I will keep all the threads updated as we get more info. Were closed today and working from home and i'm going to check the office tomorrow morning.

First run of my new Mi4 yesterday.
Wow.
I had some issues with the rear end breaking loose on the very tight track, but it only took me about 3 runs to figure that out.
First time on the track with a brand new car I turned an 11.67 with a 17.5, with the track record being a 10.9.

I ran the Mi4 for the first time this weekend, my first club race on asphalt. Honestly I did'nt have much wheeltime with my Mi3 on asphalt to compare it too but the car was solid with the setup straight out of the box. The only change was a 18.2lb front spring, 16.6lb rear spring and dropped my rear links 2mm. I TQ'd in 17.5 and lapped the field in the main but was taken out by lap traffic with 1 minute to go.

sorry for the hijack but was looking to see if any of you guys know if there is a Mi3 thread. I'm looking at getting one for my first onroad and would like to read about them. I used the search and found nothing. Thanks for any help in advance.

Ready for first track run. So far only ran 2min on the street, tracks straight. With flipped drive car is balanced left to right with no added weight. Front to back balance is just behind the antenna tube mount. Still need a few more pieces of blue hardware yet. What's there stole off the MI3.

How much does it weigh without any added weight?

Yeah I hit the adult button when I was uploading the pics not the family safe button, so I fixed them

My official apologies to anyone who may have seen a naked woman off the imagehost from my pic, I understand this was your first time and I ruined it.
