In stock trim the foam Mi2EC is still awesome. If you don't want to piece together Pro4 steering parts and/or do the T2 mod it's not needed.

I've been running a completely stock Mi2 EC USA Spec with no problems. Using a version of Seaballages' setup it works great. Maybe Seaball can comment but I believe he is running a stock car as well.

Now that Schumacher Pitspace is back online I'll have pics of the Pro4 Mod posted. That is what I'm using on my rubber tire EC.

When building the rear diff on the ec, i can never get it really smooth. is there any tips to getting it better?
Its been suggested to me that the diff plates aren't up to scratch.

Any suggestions?

First thing is to get the U1954 thrust bearing; this will last you all season (remember 1 washer is slightly larger).

Then use the female outdrive to sand both sides of the diff-rings on a hard, smooth surface. Clean everything very good and then apply rings to the outdrive with the squared edge of the ring towards the outdrive (grease the outdrive per manual). Apply a thin layer of grease on the whole ring and then build diff per the manual.

Make sure you use Schumacher diff grease and break-in the diff before running!

The AE grease is thinner and feels better when first built, but it seems that the diff needs to be tighter when using the AE grease to keep it from slipping; that causes it to wear out faster. A little inside info...All the Tamiya guys used up my Schuy grease at the IIC

I use 800 most of the time, but 600 is fine.

Sounds like you got the perfect setup then... Don't use the alloy front hubs as they bend way to easy. The rears are ok if you take out the extra slop; I would stick with the stock rear hubs.
