Talk to jdm19turn. He runs on the same track conditions and loves his MI4

What material are the CVDs made of? I know the copper color is spring steel but not sure of the grey parts. Also what is the silver part of the spool made out of? And the lay shaft?

I am sending it off for anodising and just trying to work what to send and what not to send

I follow the setup which provide by Schumacher website
http://www.racing-cars.com/images/Te...eet_tarmac.pdf

the difference between my current setup is I am using 2 piston holds, 1 degree Alloy Rear Hub Carriers and 6.5mm/front;7mm/rear ride height

I am running 11.5t BL/2s Lipo/Sorex 40R/Soft insert

Do you think, if I change medium flex wishbones will help?

Yeah front and rear what are you looking for more traction more steering or both. What is missing from your car that you won't better?
