Leadfoot:
1) Not a big difference in handling. The inboard toe will also change the wheelbase, slightly, since in changes the angle of the arm.

2) You pretty much need to set the hubs in the middle or the wheels will rub the arms. Some people are cutting off the excess insert that sticks out of the hub and just using spacers to center it. Also, you can use calipers, measuring from the arm to the hub before you tighten the screw.

3) Adding spacers to the ballstud will alter roll center and camber change. I will generally add spacers to free the rear end up a little, off power.

4) You can safely remove the rear and the upper front tensioner and it will free up the drive train quite a bit.

Pilot, eh? Is that because your car is in the air more than on the ground?

I might run stock so that there's a MI2 in every main in the sedan classes. Dujuan and Mo have mod covered and 19 turn is covered but there's no one running stock at this event. I was thinking of going foam to get some of Francis before he gets a hold of the car on foams....LOL This may be the last weekend on rubber tire's as I do want to run more mod so I may have to get to foams. We'll keep everyone posted on set up's and results on the here throughout the weekend.

Default Setup Sheet

Hi all,

Sorry for something that you guys have probably provided many time in the thread but i'm looking for any setup sheets you may have for your MI2's. I've been sticking with the original Mi for a while but just bought the MI2 and wish not to spend as much time tunning that car as i did with the original car.

BTW. I noticed in my kit the pulley mounts for the spur gear both said 20 but the instruction manual gives me the impression that one should be 17. Am I wrong about this and if not who do I contact to get me a 17 because two 20's obviously wont work.

See you at superrior hobbies sunday.
THanks,
R.
