No prototypes at any races thus far. Teemu and the rest of the team are all still using Mi2EC kits. Although it is part of the team drivers job to better the products and test new things. Many times drivers will make their own prototype parts to test.

Schumacher and all other manufactures are always testing new stuff; once there are enough changes to a certian model you will start to see complete prototype cars

What's the point, I have perfected changing a diff in less than 15 mins without disconnecting any balljoints or shocks, the only thing that has to be removed is the anti roll bar.

I haven't seen or heard of any split bulkheads. Bulkheads are very expensive to make and new ones won't show up until a new car is made. I can assure when Schumacher does a new car that it will be unique

Skiddins...There is always room to make it better and easier to work on. I think that is one of the things we need to work on

I can only think of 10 without the car in front of me.

Undo the 4 for the shock tower, the 4 for the diff carriers and the 2 for the top deck (if your doing the rear you will also need to loosen some of the other top deck screws)

You can lift the shock tower slightly and the diff carriers should move about freely, I usually twist the diff slightly etc which lets the driveshafts come out, then you can remove the carrier, now the diff itself

I used to only 'loosen' the diff carrier on one side, but it is a bit quicker if they're both loose.
