I don't....I haven't run the car on carpet/rubber tire. I will probably start with my outdoor setup and tune from there

Paul, I just heard from an old racing buddy of yours. Glen Hammond needed a spare M8 so I sent him one.

Thats awesome Tony

Here are a few things that I would probably do for carpet/rubber racing.

Next rate stiffer spring all around (gold fr & blue r).
Stiffer oil: 50 or 60wt front & 10 weight less in rear.

Hey guys, I talked with PW today and something he mentioned today that just made soooo much sense that I wanted to share it. If you use the Aluminum hub carriers, it can be hard to make sure the hubs are spaced properly left to right with the plastic inserts. Trim the plastic insert down so it is flush with the sides of the hub and just use shims to get the wheelbase set right. with this setup you don't need to use the setscrew anymore too. I need to head to the HS tonight and get some shims and I will post some pics. Thanks again for the tip PW.

Hey Matt,

Your points have been noted. Must get purple shock nuts. Black would suffice also and they are coming

As for the blue spacer, I normally run a silver 1mm one there. Last thing I did before the photo was put the blue 0.5mm one in. Typical!

Are you on ICQ ever these days? Been a while since we chatted. Have some Vantage questions aslo as I might get the new one in the next couple of weeks.

PW-Hector called me today and we fixed my tweak problem. He told me where to file down the motor mount and now the chassis is flat.

Adrian
I just wanted to thank you again for your help with my missing part and the setup advice you gave me today on the phone. I have ran alot of different cars in the past few years, but with customer service like that I know without even having run my Mi2 yet that I have found a car/company that I will stick with for quite a while.
Thanks again
David

I ground down the front of the motor mount where it bolts to the top deck. Make sure that it no longer touches the top deck and leave the screw out.

I have the set up that I ran at the regionals last year. It was good enough for 3rd place in 19 turn . I'll get it posted tomorrow for those who may want to try it. I'll be trying Mo's standard asphalt set up this year on carpet.
