Adrian - when you say you are running one notch looser does that mean for the back belt as well as the front belt?

Also - what effect does it have on the car running the diff high in the rear and running the spool low in the front per PW's setup?

thanks

low in the front will give you a little more steering

Randy and MO are no slouches either...they had very nice runs and they can fill us in as well...right fellas?

Alex, PW, and Weylin all could have easily been and won the mains, and could have also finished top 5 easily in each of their classes...it seems that the other racers were a bit too agressive and had no manners in some instances, and this hurt Alex and PW...thanks for your hard work and sacrifice and the great support and friendship with all of us fellow MI3 drivers...cant wait to hear your takes on the experience and reports and suggestions. This is a major step forward on the MI3 and lots of new knowledge was gained for sure, and this will only help Schumacher R&D keep working to refine the car and help us get even better set-up ideas

the Losi drivers like to run their Type R's with the high front, and low rear. They state in their manual that this set-up has found to be the best working overall in the experience...maybe it could work nicely ont he Mi3, also...more testing...

the manual seems to indicate that the ballstud that joins the front caster blocks and the steering hub, as well as the bottom screw, should not be turned all the way in, but left a minimum of 1mm out...doest this give you exesive play? 2mm of play doesnt seem kosher...maybe .5mm or 1mm, but 2mm? Can someone explain this to me...thx

To show you how much it came down to driving, in the 4th round that I finally tq'ed because I didn't blow out there were 9 guys with a 5:11 time. That's less than zero room for error, not only could you not make an error once, simply blowing your line could cost you 4 positions.
