Very nice write up I like it good information. I am building my mi1 now and will put your information and tips on my chassis thank you. But you're base carpet setup I could not read my tablet could not get it into focus I would need it in a pdf file to see it. I am going to set my mi1 up for carpet. I never run on carpet before. Thanks again

I don't have a spool for my mi1 what's the part number for that . and part number for the double cvs. That's just for the front write. Don't need to add anything to the rear of the car. Thanks

Spool part# is U3808
DCJ set # is G884

Both are sold by Schumacher. You can run the front diff without any issues, but I would recommend making sure the adjustment screw is fully tightened. The car will drive fine, you just won't have the drive out of the corners. In fact, on tight tracks, I'd recommend using the diff up front. Use it as a tuning tool depending on the track.

As far as the setup, click on the link just above the setup sheet picture on the post. That will take you to the full page. Should be easier to read.

How's the best way to do the rear toe on the mi 1 I don't have a pit board with markings on it.
How do you judge what degree you have. Thanks for the help

The only way that I ever adjusted it was on an alignment rack. You can pick them up fairly cheap. I'd also recommend checking it often, preferably after each round of racing. A wall-tap or crash will throw it off just a hair.

Maybe stand the car up on its rear end and use a camber gauge? Schumacher makes some carbon setup wheels with that in mind. I'm not sure if it'd work with normal wheels/tires.

Thanks guys for the idea. I do have the carbon setup wheels. I did not think of that. I don't have the alignment rack.

Does anyone have a good set up for a large on road track mid to high grip. The straight is about 150feet long it's got a lot of curves in the infield but has plenty of room to get around. Thanks

Hi Jesse and everyone!
I just wrote some questions in your blog about Mi1. Maybe is better if I write here so everyone in the forum can share the info.
Your blog is awesome, congratulations and thanks for it!
I'm just looking to find the spares to do the same mod as you did. As I asked in your blog, I'm facing problems finding the number part of the threaded body shocks. Can you help me? Many thanks.
Regarding springs, ok, I know now the AE springs I should buy. But I have at home 4 yellow Schumacher Mission springs (the hardest I think) plus the stock blue. Would the yellow do the job?

Thanks,
Fran

Installing the U2252 spur gear adaptor to use industry standard spur gear means use 64p spur and pinion? Or industry standard spur gear are also sold in 48p?

Pick up Schumacher Pt# U2252, this will allow you to use industry standard spur gears, which will make gearing much easier.
