Well ran rubber tires on carpet for the first time ever last night. WOW was that fun. I hope I get to do that again soon. Really have to drive the cars and not make mistakes to get fast runs.

I ran at Horshem last night as many of us planned to run rubber tires. They ha no problems allowing us to run rubber tires. I used Weylins setup from Vegas. Car was aweful for my first run with CS-27 (used tires). After that I put on a set of RP-30s and each run after that just kept getting better and better without having to change the car. The track just came in to the car setup and by main time I was running faster laps each run. Only really messed with droop all day.

I ended up qualifying 2nd out of 12 guys. In the main we had a 3 car freight train for the first 2 or 3 laps. The leader made a mistake and I got by and 3rd went by as well. I battle for the last 3 minutes and swapped leads several times til with about 20 seconds to go I made a mistake and ened up being 5 feet behind at the finsh. 1st thru third less than 3 seconds apart. I did run the faster lap of the night in the main so that also made me feel good as well. Car was very consistant lap after lap.

My old school EC was hooked up well. I did have the stock asphalt chassis on as I don't own anything for carpet racing but to me the car worked great.

most tc chassis are in the 12-13 inch long range.you can probably get a few top decks out of it or a 1/12th chassis

I'm glad to hear U had fun wyd. I'm lovin the E.C. Yesterday was my first race with my EC. The car just flows thrrough the corners a hell of a lot faster than my old MI2. Now I just have to put the right setup on it. Hopefully I'll find it before the MI3 come's out. I don't want to park it completely when I get the 3. but instead have it as a backup.

I cant wait till next week for the Mi3 news! Mine's already on order, I havent run a Schumacher since the Axis days.

Adrian and Paul, I just want to commend you guys on the great customer service that you offer to your dealers and drivers alike. Bill Van Kirk, my bud and LHS owner always has such great things to say about Schumacher and you guys.

Anyways just wanted to tell you that your hard work is appericated and I cant wait to get the new car.

I normally race on med. high carpet with rubber tires. But there is a race with low bite, what is the best thing to change with out changing the hole car?
