Tried the new arms yesterday...wow...the car felt more stable..did not snap the rear out of corner like before....I had HPI springs for the first time as well...a lot more progressive...combination of the two made for a very stable car that you could put anyware.

I switched over to the alloy toe blocks with 2mm spacing between them f/r and i also ran the new arms, it took away the massive amount of push my front end had. I didn't add the extra 1mm spacer like your supposed too which narrowed the front end a lot

Default Need advise

Currently I am running mi3. After I had test my friend Xray t2009, I found that the car can handle very well compare to my mi3. my friend just using the standard setup for his xray t2 009. I wonder does mi4 can handle better/same as xray t2 009 or not. We are running on tarmac track/bumpy/sorex 40R. Not sure why my mi3 cannot perform well in the track. I am consider to get a new kit.
