RTO: Thicker oil will slow down weight transfer but speed up the reactions in the car. If traction isn't a problem, by all means, go to thicker oil (say 60 with 2 holes) and it will liven the car up.

Default chassis layout

Anyone notice the lack of electronics mounting room on the new mission chassis? Also, is it going to be a major pain to change spur gears as it appears there is a support on both sides of the spur? Will it allow for aftermarket spurs or will only Schumacher spurs work?

Thanks

Mission Man

Mission man I dont think that there will not be enough room for the electronics on the new car. As far as changing the spurs it looks like it might take a little longer now but not as bad as some other cars on the market, we will have to see once we get the car.

There isn't masses of room, but i think there should be enough.

I was talking about the spur gear issue last night. You shoudn't really need to change it that often, it shouldn't be any harder than anything else. I would think that aftermarket parts should still fit.

Should be plenty of room. Look at the 99 pro car and other makes of cars that have batteries on one side. With the Mission car, I think the electronics lay out will be cleener and easier also. The spur gear issue I don't know. Looks like a little work, but like others say, easir than other cars.
I don't see any part of the car that has a down side, as far as the pictures tell, just up sides.

Spur Gear and Electronics Mounting on the SST Mission:

Yes the spur gear will be more difficult to get to but the decision was made to go this route in order to reduce layshaft bearing loading and improve gear mesh. The distance from the inner layshaft bearing to the center of the spur gear is almost 1" on all of the existing SST sedans. As the motor turns and the pinion meshes with the spur it is forced away from the pinion. The unsupported layshaft span multiplies the load against the layshaft bearings. The Mission put the spur between the bearings. This supports and locates the spur very well, reduces load on the bearings, reduces friction and maintains gear mesh more precisely. The benifits outweigh the drawbacks. This is an example of the Schumacher engineers sweating the details.

If you mount a big honkin LRP 7.1 in front of the motor and a stump puller servo you will have enough room to mount any commonly available non micro reciever on its side between the servo and the speedo. An Airtonics, Futaba, LRP, KO, JR or Novak micro reciever will fit flat on the chassis if you use a smaller LRP Quantum, Novak, Keyence or GM speedo.
