Here's the page for Manuals:

http://www.racing-cars.com/usa/produ...bcategory=Cars

Here's the MI2EC manual:

http://www.racing-cars.com/usa/searc...e1=prodvalue14

Hmmm that doesnt work - I just tried the MI2 manual and I got it to work, you should be able to use it to get started. Links look the same, MI2 works.

Were currently waiting on the 48p 70t to come in, they are on order,

As for the 64p 78t they are currently sold out and on order as well

Were also working toward getting 64p 90t through the 114t to fill that gap on the MI3, I'll keep you all posted on that as I get more info

I've also just sent off an email to get the MI2EC manual back up and working on the website. If I cant get it today i think i have it downloaded on my laptop at home, I'll check and let you know tonight.

Just wondering because I rarely have to put anything higher than a 23 tooth pinion on the car, but cant you guys make the gear ratios needed for 19 turn with the 114-118 gears? At the nats and IIC I had no problem getting the ratios I needed with brushes motors..

HAHA.... Yea, I doubt I'll be able to run that. The drive to the Snowbirds will be long enough, making it twice in the same 6 months... notta chance. LOL

What cars are you guys gonna run?

look here http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=161258

for the 13.5 you need to be in the low 4's fdr in most medium tracks, you may want to get the 96t spur gear

For my 10.5 I'm running a 64p 116t spur with a 41t pinion. THE FDR is 5.3. I could probablly go up 2 more teeth.
