I believe Schumacher USA stocks all the parts for the original Mission. Not 100% sure about the RW pulleys, but they may have them.

I don't have a chart, but the lowest I've ever run the roll centers was no risers (under the blocks or the bulkheads) and .5mm shims under the pivot blocks in the front and 1mm under the blocks in the rear and I had no problems. But I also had the droop pretty limited with that setup too so I'm not sure how much droop you can get with the blocks that low before the arms hit the chassis.

Which Mi3 logo are you trying to use?

The one on the Schumacher site is a jpeg but the dimension are to big and RCtech won't accept it. You just need to have it be 80x80 and/or under 30KB I believe.

With 2mm chassis I never go less than the riser plate (2mm). With the 2.5mm carpet chassis I never go less than 1mm.

The one PW is using was specifically made for him


Schumacher Pitspace is still putting together some desktop images and avatars that people can download and use. They should be ready sometime in the next week or so.

Just a random question but will Schumacher ever think of making a 1/18 scale car to run against a Xray M18? Just wondering since mini scale fun stuff is picking up around here and now you carry A-Tech type 1/18 buggies/trucks.
