Thanks for the offer but I don't wanna grab stuff that you could need later. I've emailed Schumacher about that also a little bit more than 1 month ago and they were supposed to receive that part at the end of july. Still not in stock.
Hopefully this problem will be resolved in the futur because I really like the car.
If they could also remake the adjustable battery holder that they discontinued, that would be great!!!
Thanks again for the offer Aja Archibald.

I have just placed an order at that place. I did not know it, thanks for the hint.
It will be a little more expensive because of the shipping but at least I should get the outdrives.

I have finally been able to try the new short shocks on my car and I really like it. At first, I was struggling to control the car but when I found the good combination of springs, it went really good. I have been able to beat my fastest lap by 0.1 second. I am more consistently in the high 7 than before. I thought that all of what we hear about the short shocks was just marketing but it really helped me with the traction rolling that I had before. I have high hope for a better result next time I go for a practice as this time, I had a leaky diff, tires with rings of death and a cracked body that is not high downforce even if I run mod on a small track. A little wrenching and it should be fun

When I snag a second mi6 I'll set it up with the low pro shocks. Are you using schumacher springs or another brand?

SMJ and Xrays are a good choice

I have been running the new shocks for 3 weeks now. I am running X-ray progression front and 2.6 in the rear. Car is by far much better on carpet.
I picked up almost .3 per lap. I will continue this week to play with shock oil. I have been running associated 45 both front and rear. Going to a softer oil this week.
If it gets better I will lets you guys know.

How do you like the Serpent 4x? The Evo could be good. What is your take on asphalt racing which model seems to do the best outdoors?

I don't have the Evo - never really got on that well with the 4X. It's an interesting car but gave up with the leaky shocks and it's soft aluminium parts.

I can't really compare asphalt outdoor vs anything else because I haven't been to any indoor or carpet tracks in Hong Kong.
I really like the Schumacher Mi6Evo. But also very fond of the Gizmo Beta and Awesomatix A800 cars.
Learning and build knowledge curve for the Gizmos and AMX cars is way up there. It's super critical that for both of those cars the build is done properly i.e. no sticky joints, everything is smooth etc ...
The Mi6 is more conventional, easy to work on and in my opinion has better kit quality and ease to drive out of the box than the BD8s or T4s.

Many at my local asphalt track in Taipei have 4x but they either use it in stock blinky or rest it on their shelf. Although it is a lighter and faster car, parts is rare and car isn't durable enough for less skilled driver. On the other hand Mi6 is more of a conventional car make it easier to tune and most importantly much better aluminum strength that is equal or not better than a T4 in lower prices. The only concern is that Mi6evo has been out for a while .Just not sure when will a new mi series be coming out.

Would anyone have a recommendation on an upgraded battery strap for the mi6? I am really not wanting to use tape anymore. I have seen some of the Pro's run a conventional type of custom battery fastener. Perhaps someone can share with me this secret?

Thanks!
