The foam spec EC has a thicker (2.5mm) chassis than the rubber spec (2mm) chassis. We really don't need one thicker than that because of the thick, higher top deck. It's just as stiff as the cars you see with the 4mm slabs and we don't have to worry about notching the chassis where the pivot blocks mount to get the roll centers right.

You can get the plastic pivot blocks from the Mi2. Install them with the ridge on the outside and that'll give you 1.5 and with the ridge to the inside, that'll give you 3. The pin location on the plastic blocks is also .5mm higher than the alloy ones so you'll need to adjust to make sure you get the right roll center.
Thanks Jon as that is exactly what I'm looking for. Guess I will have to call Adrian in the morning for a little parts order. Might be the final piece I have been looking for.

Big thanks to PW, Adrian, Mo, Jon Kerr, Jeff Witman,Mini dub, and all my other Schuie team mates from over the years. I'm putting the car down and I'm moving on to try something different. I have nothing but good things to say about everyone at Schumacher. I even forgive Weylin for making me wear a dress I will still see you guys at the regular events so you guys will still have someone to laugh at Keep up the good work and keep this thread full of info for future/current driver's.

Yeah i was thinking the same thing......

So whos going to Cleveland for the US Indoor Champs?
Seaball and mini-dub?????? Anyone else......

Also whos going to make it to the US Touring Car Champs...AKA The Novak Race? The Novak race flyer is out its on the Trackside website if you havent seen it yet. It looks like the Novak race will be a long week if you can get the time off you can race the whole week on the layout and get dialed in.

Seaball.....Noope I blew my load in Vegas along with all my time off for the year. Next year I think Vegas will get left off and I might go to Cleveland again....and make the Classic as well. We will see how that all plays out with wedding plans and everything else.... Good luck out at the Champs and will you be up here for the week of the Novak and run the New Years Day race as well?

I think that good reason is called "Silk" errr so I have been told. Come up that Sunday and join the party and then race monday and tuesday then start the novak. See its soo easy.....and we will have the Royal Mounted Police on hand to keep Brasky away.

You will need U2401 (alloy hexes) and U2153 (axle spacers). Don't use the stock cone spacer with the alloy hexes; use 3 thin shims in place of the cone spacer.
