I run the Mi 1 in VTA does a great job The Weight is good no need to add led weight.

Use the box stock set up first, its a great start.
2 į toe front and back, 1 į camber front and 2.5į rear. Using stock spur gear or the upgraded aluminum one for standard spurs ?
gear for 3.3 and see where you temp wise.

Guys I’m a little confused...V1/V2, do the parts all carry over between the two? I see parts on eBay, but I am concerned that V1/V2 May be an issue?

im guessing gear diffs aren’t a thing for this car? Not a huge deal.

Im thinking of picking up 2 (one to race and one for parts) for VTA.

Parts are 99% the same between the two cars. If I remember right the top deck is the only difference and they are compatible between both cars.
A gear diff is not an option, sorry.

Iím feeling a little nostalgic and considering to purchase a Mi1 V2 as a little project. I noticed the car doesnít come with a gear differential, but I do have an Awesomatix gear differential handy. Quite possibly the AMX gear differential and spool might work.

I personally donít have a kit, but if someone does and wouldnít mind sending me the dimensions of the rear differential that would be great.

This is the standard differential that comes with the Awesomatix A800 series.

I will also thinking that it might be possible to 3D print a pulley to fit the Awesomatix differential.

The two pulleys pictures are not bolted together. They will need to be bolted together with a long screw.
