hey guys
i raced my ec the other day and was un impressed. i didnt haveany lap times but the car felt un responsive and slow. i went from a diff in my mi2 to a spool in the ec. im running silver sway bars and white springs 30 wt oil kit pistons 5mm ride height and 3mm rear and 2mm front droop apart from that stock. what can i do to get more speed in a high speed chicane?? in 540(slower than stock) we dont lift and it is after a long sraight (20+metres)
so its high speed i know high speed normally doesnt affect lap time as much as low speed sections but this sets up a low speed section.
mind u i only got one pack through before it rained so i probably being hrsh on the car cause im frustrated. havnt raced in 4 weeks
cheers guy

The team that are running at Vagas are they running the new car that is in development in the UK or are they running some new parts on the older car?

Before you go changing stuff i would suggest that you go over the car and make sure that everything is as its supposed to be. To tell you truth i cant tell you the last time i've heard someome say this car did not work out of the box. And when they did, it turned out that they did something wrong. So again before you go trying the latest and greatest and end up feeling that this car 'requires' too much to make it fast check your drive train make sure its free (one shim for the dif), check your outdrives, make sure they are not binding along the full range of motion. Check your cvd's and like. When you are confident that the car is as it should be try making small changes. It sounds like you could benefit from simply standing the front shocks up one for the chicane. But you will not need much more than that.

Let us know if you find anything.

The final round of the BRCA modified and 19t championship took place at a sunny West London raceway over the weekend and was dominated by the Schumacher team with their MI2EC's.

Following on from his KO GP win last month Adam Rogers TQ'ed and took the overall victory in modified from Chris Grainger with the EC of Kevin Brunsden in 3rd. The final make up saw a fantastic 5 Mi2EC's in the top 7, with Chris Ashton 5th, James Howarth 6th and Matt White 7th.

1-Adam Rogers - Mi2EC/Schumacher XVS 4200SHV/Fantom Alloy 2/LRP
2-Chris Grainger - Yokomo
3-Kevin Brunsden - Mi2EC/Schumacher XVS 4200SHV/Fantom Alloy 2/Keyence
4-Lee Woodhams - Yokomo
5-Chris Ashton - Mi2EC/Schumacher XVS 4200SHV/Fantom Alloy 2/Keyence
6-James Howarth - Mi2EC/Schumacher XVS 4200SHV/Fantom Alloy 2/Keyence
7-Matt White - Mi2EC/Schumacher XVS 4200SHV/Fantom Alloy 2/Keyence
8-Ben Cosgrove - HB
9-Olly Jefferies - Yokomo
10-Andrew Robson - Yokomo

All the Schumacher drivers were powered by the new Fantom Alloy 2 motor which was used at this race for the first time.

In the overall modified championship for the year Adam finished runner up behind Chris Grainger with Kevin Brunsden 7th, Chris Ashton 8th and Matt white 10th. James Howarth took home the Junior BRCA modified title - Congratulations to all!!!!!

In the 19t class the Mi2EC also dominated qualifying with Anthony Potter and Colin Jackson filling the front row. These two were also battling for the overall championship with them having equal points going into the final race. With the extra points gained from qualifying and a good set of final results Anthony took the overall championship from his buddy Colin after a titanic season long battle.

Congratulations from all at Schumacher for taking a well deserved 1st and Second in the 19t BRCA Championship!!!

Weylin will be running the Mi2EC as will all of Team Schumacher. Maybe one of these guys talking about an Mi3 could hook me up with one

No one at schumacher here in the Uk has used a new development car all year. The only change has been the use of Carpet towers on the tarmac car.


Good Luck to ALL the Schumacher drivers attending the Vegas race!!

i also havent heard of a new car coming out. the team is always refining and updating different parts, to keep the car competitive. so if new prototype parts were to be used at vegas i wouldnt be surprised.
