2 more for myself. I couldn't stand that the Mi4 I am running is anodized purple, yet my scheme did not have any....

So to redeem myself:



If I had 1 change I could do to the Mi4, get rid of the angled camber link plates. I hate having to undo the plate to change camber....

I was contemplating switching to open ballcups and ballstuds with hexes in them... I'ts not a HUGE deal right now as I only run on one track ATM, so once I find setup, I won't be changing that all too often. I just would have expected them to make sure you can at least access that with a wrench....

Ooh, am looking forward to the final product. I decided against re-anodizing, as I'd rather buy a new set of tires...

If anyone is interested in scanning their Mi4 chassis so I can make template for my chassis protectors send me a pm. Its getting way too expensive to buy these chassis and hope to recoup some costs back on e-bay. There would be free product for someone who would help me out

Thanks,
Julius

For the time being I put battery tape on the front of the chassis bumper holder and chassis, and at the tail of the chassis. Just need to replace every run. Next time I will try adding a touch of shoe goo. The corner dots at my track are brutal on the front of the chassis, and 2 bumps into the straight file the rear down fast.

I could raise the ride height a little, but then I do believe I will be slower on the majority of the track just to gain less wear.
