hey guys can i have a base line set up for an mi2 with the lower shock towers?
ive been running 20lbs springs and no sway bars
the grip is medium/high but its getting cold track temp was bout 15'celcius so i will try sorex 28r next i was running 36'r but it was like ice for 6 laps slidding and looped a few times
any way this is the track lay out it 198m long so i thinkk the back straight must be about 30m long and it has boral top coat on it (it's like a grip paint works well)
http://www.lcrccc.com/track/MeakinLayout.JPG
any suggestions would be great or old set ups would be nice.
thanks all

David, I haven't run indoors, but have run outdoors on concrete. Car was very good, basically working around softening it up for more roll and hence more grip, plus a few other minor changes.

Go here for the setup (track is called Bayside)

Cheers
Scott

Hey Dave, start with the stock EC set-up at Enid, let me know if you need a car to try.

Like Weylin said, the Parma is more for Foams on carpet. Low down force. It may make the car slide around a lot. Stratus 3.0AP is a high down force body and should really plant the car. If you want to try something different, try one of the Ride bodies.

There's really no way of telling how much time you'll loose on a lap, but in most cases, you won't be competitive depending on what "scale" body you choose.

What about the HPI R hubs? doe they work well? Thanks as always.
Do you have the alloy rear pivot blocks on the car? If so, I'd suggest trying the 0 inserts in the rear hubs and moving them to the center. It should help the rear end rotate well.

The HPI hubs have a different offset than the alloy hubs. We used them on the chassis we had for Vegas that was kind of the predecessor to the EC chassis. The pivot block mounts are wider on that chassis moving the arms out. We used the HPI hubs to pull the wheels in more to make the car legal.

Mini Dub (Weylin Rose) had the best all around Mi2 setup.
