yeah, but you'll need a pair of 8x4x3mm bearings as that post is thinner.

Default Schumacher stronger than ever

Just had a long phone talk with Mark Musgrove the new USA sales contact at Schumacher UK who took the time to stay up till 11:30 his time to call me. Very nice gentlemen who races himself and seems to be great to work with. Things are going to be good for Us Schumacher drivers and customers here in the US as far as pricing & availability of there products along with more new products for those dealers that dealt with Schumacher USA. There will be more info on this real soon. I myself am looking forward to helping push Schumacher into the future. Answering questions, build tip, setups,and prototyping new peices. Hope everyone decides to stick with there mi4 as its a great car and will only get better

Default diff circlip

I have lost the circlip for my diff mi4. So the easy question is what size is it? Ive tried to size it up with a selection of clips at work, but I can not get a match.

Thanks

Yea Mark is a very nice guy I met him at a race in Ireland in July, on the second day of the event I watched him open an Mi4 and build it in about 45mins!

Not only does he race but he is the British pro-stock champion

Going to be running my MI4LP for the first time this sunday at stafford indoor on rubber tyres.

Ive ordered the schumacher spring set, along with a spare set of front and rear wishbones, hub carriers, 2 & 6 degree yokes.

I believe people are also using XRAY and tamiya springs, is it just certain colours people are using or is it worth getting full set ?

Also looking at getting TIR products to reduce the weight once ive got used to it .

Are they worth buying ? And what other parts are worth carrying as spares ?

Thanks

Mike

Sounds strange, please give me the order number and i will investigate.

Honestly....wouldnt bother with the schumacher spring set. The cars feels alot nicer on Xray springs.....ive been running from 3.0/2.8/2.6

Mainly 3.0 front/2.6 rear on carpet for me.

sorry, I got the date wrong on the initial order date and it is not as bad of a wait as it seems.. I will delete my whiney post above

I stand corrected and Schuie is completely vindicated and I apologize. I was going by the info on my order that stated it was not dispatched but they are fast considering they are shipping from across the pond.
1st order delivered today! Shocked and VERY PLEASED! Schuie supports us!

I will delete my whiney post above Just worried about having to get parts from UK that seems to be b/o everywhere in the USA and frustrated people do not do what they say or send a courtesy confirmation or communique. Here is the real scoop.
I ordered the 2/26 and was emailed later that day on the UPS shipping. I asked if the order shipped on the 2nd and was told it would ship that day so I placed another order thinking everything was good but both of my orders have yet to be dispatched according to your site.
24126
24052
Thanks for the honesty.

24052 was delivered today at 9.27 - Not sure why you didn't receive email conformation - You should have, sorry!
24126 - Ordered Tuesday and shipping today after 1 day delay waiting until the order was complete.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Chris...I edited and apologized above. I am completely satisfied and feel that you chaps are doing exactly what you stated and are fully supporting the USA. Keep up the GREAT work!

I think this is a personal preference, i like more HPI springs, because always i run with a Hot bodies, and the car feel very good with it, but certainly the lap times are not differents with Schumacher springs, for carpet the greens ones work well.
The more springs uses are, Green,white and blue, or HPI pink,silver, blue or XRAY C3.0,2.8,2.6, approximately 18,16 and 14lb.

Do not forget a spare of pivots blocks U3494, spurs, blades and front hex U3570.
The TIR products work well, good duration, i have mount in my car the F1 spool (TNM3564) with bones, without blades in front.
The spool outputs i donīt see in shumacher page, the TNM3964 donīt work in F1 spool.

Greetings, Luis C.
