    MIP THREAD!!!!!

    Hi guys, this is Matt over at Morre's Ideal Products better known as MIP. I would like to start a new MIP based thread so I can get some feedback about our products. The good, the bad, and everything in-between, bring it all on! I'm the customer service/ tech guy/ team manager over here so if you have any questions, or need help, make sure to hit me up.

    We also have a couple new products in the works, the first of which is our Realshocks Bypass 1 product. Check out Velocity RC Magazine's vid for a detailed overview with Eustace Moore (MIP Owner).

    visit vrcmag.com for the vid

    Enjoy!

    Regards,

    Matt

    RE: MIP THREAD!!!!!

    A type of universal cooling head would be cool... where a head button mounts onto the specific engine with some countersunk screws, then the a standardized fin stack mounts on top of the head button. To switch it over to a different engine, all you would need would be a different (and cheap) head button.

    RE: MIP THREAD!!!!!

    as a long time mx rider i have thought alot about the valved shocks but my design had equal number of holes in the piston and a flappervalve on the top and bottom of the piston with various hole numbersto control both rebound and compression. the valve would have to stay fixed to the piston and not rotateto maintain the hole alignment. damn, there goes my millions!!

    RE: MIP THREAD!!!!!

    The 4 in one clutch isnt that great. It's basically just an RTR type clutch. It slips bad when used with a Robinson clutch bell. The stock GT clutch is far better, especially if you pick up a 3 or 4 shoe flywheel.

    I use the AE 4 shoe racing flywheel and it does work pretty good hehehe, some former ST racers told me the MIP was the bombshizzle tho.

    RE: MIP THREAD!!!!!

    I just bought a set of CVDs' for my rustler VXL and on the first run the outside cup broke half in two. They were the 08123 model. I know the slipper was set and my set-up is stock with a 3s battery. My question is if there is any type of warranty on these. I feel like there had to have been a weak spot in the cup or something.

    RE: MIP THREAD!!!!!

    I wouldn't mind seeing some parts for the Losi LST2.. Like anodized skidplates, roll bars, and maybe a better brake disk/shoe setup. The losi stuff works okay, but there isnt a whole lot of aftermarket parts other than the RPM stuff and the Losi skid plates. Some alloy diff cups would be super neat, too.

    I've used MIP CVD's on my Nitro Rustler for many many years. The only problems I've ever encountered with them is sometimes the dogbones would pop out of the drive cup, and the drive cups wore really fast. I found ways around the drive cup coming out, but I ended up having to buy replacement drive cups on my last Rustler.

    Overall, MIP has good quality stuff. I haven't any real issues that would prevent me from buying again.

    RE: MIP THREAD!!!!!

    This is the axle that broke on me. I have to think it was a freak thing. You can see there is no wear on the axle. It broke on the first run. I had to put a stock axle in for now and have run it with the other MIP and the stock on the other side and have had no problems yet. Slipper is working.

    RE: MIP THREAD!!!!!

    Hi MIP Matt, I just purchased from a retailer the Slash 4x4 rear (#10130) and front kits, but the rear seemed to be missing two pins #99023? I opened the pack carefully and searched all over the table and floor in case it dropped out but there are no where to be found. The package was sealed where the small parts are in the pack.

    What can I do? I had to take two of the four pins from the front set to complete the rear but that still leaves me two short

    Also, are the hex's meant to wobble about so much? Seems to wobble a bit to me on both sides.
