personally, i think the mi3 is an awesome car. i like that it's lower looking than the 4. bolt on the new short arms and plastic blocks to an mi3/.5 to lighten it up and i'd bet it's a weapon.
Thats what I am going to do to my Mi3/Exotech for the Birds. That with with the graphite battery holders instead ot the weighted metal ones my car will be pretty good.

Anyone tried a Mi4 battery tray on the Mi3 yet? I had to glue 2 locators to my pack to keep it from ejecting, which is fine, but I like to switch batteries between it and my losi at times. I also got the losi lcd's on the car, need to finalize a blade or different spool option, but they seem to fit well otherwise.

Thumbs up

Hello, I am planning on getting into 1/10 touring and the Mi4lp caught my eye, however here is my question. I am going to run indoors with a rubber tire and lipo setup. Now I need to know what parts I need to run this configuration. Do I need to change to a thicker chassis, top plate, and do I need a front diff to run a rubber tire carpet setup?

DON'T DO IT !!!!. Just after I got my 3.5 I bought the LP battery brace and strap. No fit, no how !!. The mounting ears for the brace aren't in the right locations to mount on the 3.5 chassis. They're offset and the rear ear sits to far out to fit. Called Adam at Schumacher and confirmed this.
