mike's site is safe...there is no financial information passed thru his actual website...when you get ready to make a payment, you're passed thru to paypal - which is https connection, so there's you security

I've order a bunch of times from his site and never had ANY problems - and I make a living doing info security stuff

k_bojar is correct! Your CC info is never seen or inputed into exotek's website. Our site directs you to Paypal upon checkout where you enter your info into their secured servers. Once paypal receives your payment the transaction is completed. Way more secure this way

RKeasler- that is Xenon battery tape in the pics, sorry

so i ordered the chassis, top deck, and battery strap on monday the 3rd, on thrusday the 6th it shows up, on
the 7th i take my Mi3 to the track, slap on a set of new speedmind premount 32's, crank out some 18.7's pretty consistent, pull in pits, recharge, clean and re-goup tires, go back out, turn 18.7's with a .5 thrown in here and there, pull in the pits, turn car up side down, remove bottom plate, attach new exotec plate, turn car over remove and replace top deck, re-goup tires, turn 18.2's with the occasional 18.0 and a traction roll thrown in, this is on a large outdoor pavement track. so in case anyone was wondering,

I AM THRILL TO DEATH WITH THE NEW SET UP.

AWESOME JOB MIKE, THANK YOU

btw, i just built it per instructions, never bothered with right to left balance

Thanks for the props guys Glad to hear the conversion is working well for you Skypilot. .5second pick up is HUGE! Good job there with your set ups and driving.
My Mi3X Has become my primary racer. Really liking the edgy but sharp and predictable handling. I'm no longer chasing the set up as the track changes like I had to do with the original chassis

When it comes to shipping quickly MikeR is the man. My order for my TC5 stuff was in 3 days and my buddy ordered some TC5 stuff and had same super fast service. Wish all business's and sellers on Tech where this reliable.

How good would this chassis be for high bite indoor asphalt?

if your talking about where asphalt nationals will be held, then the chassis will suck, don't get one

actually it should be awesome.

My new chassis and top deck should be here Monday, racing it next week. I did get the top plate but will try the factory carpet top plate when I go to Maryland next month (I hope). Looking forward to it.

I imagine working for a European model car maker has its perks, like getting a good deal on an MI4 that could get passed along to me in exchange?

Well got the chassis and top deck installed, really nice. Racing tomorrow and did drive it around the driveway a little and really seemed very reactive. I will get to the track early and see how she feels on the track in the morning. Love the chassis money well spent, thanks Mike.
