Thanks, I wonder if an xray or tc5 one will fit.

Hey Guys - Just had to post how impressed I was with the first few runs of this new car (Mi4LP) this past weekend. What a fun car to drive. Great balance and handling right out of the box. I'm really looking forward to racing this car...

Later..

Looks good to me! And I agree, blue doesnt work well with anything but blue or black.


I messed with set up this weekend in mod and had it pretty darn dialed! I will post it later, I want to try it with a mazda speed. The normal one isnt what I want, and the LTC is to aggressive. I need the happy medium Plus my tires were toasted The Randy Caster wheels are super dialed! If you dont have a set your missing out on them. Same with the new speed passion motors

one little pic for now skypilot, hope its a good size? Trying to upload them to rct is a PITA..

Those wheels are nice, but since I have the All in one setup station, I don't see a need for them. I see the reason (to check ride height) but I do the same on my setup station.

There perfect for at home. You can set up your car and not have to have stinky tires in your house. I guess that depends if you use paragon though. Tire tweak doesnt smell. I have a station also, but putting it together and all compared to spinning wheels on. They work good with the hudy camber gauge.

No stinky tires here. I am looking forward to what else Randy comes up with. I AM a tool whore, so I might need to order a set anyway

Was wondering if anyone could tell me why lots of people are putting the narrow hexes on the front?

Thanks.

Mainly to allow the trackwidth (shims on the suspension blocks) to be extended another 1mm, so the narrow hex allows the car width to stay the same.

Making the front end not as aggressive but keeping steering
