RCfiend....Hobby Central 2 (Poway) and Hobbytown USA (San Marcos) are 2 very large dealers in Southern CA. Give us a call at Schumacher USA and we can get you headed in the right direction.

Please stop by the Schumacher Tent at the Reedy Race for further info.

Hi Bigdog, Thanks for the tip but, on such a big circuit I'm for sure gonna use my one-way (I'm a fan of one-ways, I almost always use them, if there is enough traction) And if I'm gonna make one side stiffer it's gonna be the rear.

I was thinking of using the maximum wheelbase length and the inline position for the camberlinks. Not sure about the upper or lower position on the bulkheads. Any thoughts on that....

Thanks

RCFIEND, Parts might be a little more pricey, but the car is much more durable. Stop by and talk to Paul at the Reedy Race. He can give you loads of info on the car.

RCFIEND, Forgot to mention. YES. I do honestly see and feel a difference in the corners. It's a great car. Give it a shot!

The key point is that you wont need to buy as many parts as the Losi. All the hub carriers and front arms that break on the Losi wont happen on the Mission. This isn't a bash agaist Losi, its simply fact.

If in fact the parts do cost more, believe me you'll save in the long run. I'm on my forth Schumacher now(original SST2000 TC~99' Pro~AxisPro~Mission) and the only thing I've ever broken was the plastic universals on the original car. THis happened before they developed the bump stops for the steering system. Since then no parts breakage at all.

RCFiend: One other thing, you can get the Mission in all c/f...unlike the Losi. Everything previously pointed out is also very true. Once you've driven a Schuie, you can't go back (lol). BTW, the name is Jeff Maurer (or you can just ask for Racer X, most people know who I am). I'll be in the Schumacher pits with Paul Wynn, Cornerspeed (who I hope is the fast So Cal guy you reffered to) and the rest of the guys. I'll look forward to seeing you...


Good luck to everyone at the Reedy Race this weekend!

Hey everyone thanks for the input, I will definetly stop the Schumacher pits. I look forward to meeting you guys and gathering more information. At this point I'm pretty sure I will purchase one, it would of been nice to purchase one prior to the Reedy Race. I thought Ultimate Hobbies would have a replacement kit by now, I talked to several of the employees there and they said that they placed an order 3 weeks ago with Schumacher. Is there a backorder on the Mission? I'm not sure they were giving me accurate information, 3 weeks seems like a long time to wait on a car kit. One other question, I've been told that the screws that come with the kit aren't the best, and that there is a optional screw kit that I should purchase. Any truth to this?

The Posi screws aren't the best but if you don't have the funds to get their regular screw set be careful with the screws on the bottom. When you get to the tack drive THE COPS Mission and then switch during the race.........I did this at the Reedy Race about three years ago..... That same year I made the A-main at the 99 Roar nats with the car.....with the Help from
Racer X, The Cop, Ruben B., and Trina.

BTW has anyone heard from her since they closed down their track? Her and her husband were a class act!

Schumacher has a great car in the mission......too bad I'm Losi all the way....LOL

Default Tools, etc.

Okay, bought a Mission and an Axis 2. I need some help in getting a list of needed hex and nut drivers. Also, I suppose I need a posi driver? Any help with sizing, brands and where to get them online at a good price would help.

I have been reading on setting up the cars and I am thinking of getting the Integy setup tools. Any comments on these? Will I need a setup board regardless?

Thanks!

RC-Hacker: for the nut sizes, Schumacher uses the same M3 and M4 nut sizes that almost every other car uses. The manual calls for a 7mm and a 5.5mm nut driver. I manage to get by with those four sided box wrenches that come with most kits. As for the hex sizes. The diff screw uses a 2mm hex and the diff locking screw uses a 1.5mm hex.

As for the posi driver. Just go to your local hardware store and find a interchangeable head ratcheting screwdriver(if you don't already have one) Hopefully you should be able to find one that comes with the posi heads. If not, or if you already own one of these screwdrivers, then just search the place for a pack of tips that includes the posi tips. I found mine at ACE Hardware and another board member, CIVIC91, found some at SEARS.

My whole kit went together without one striped screw.

SpeedTechR/C will be coming out with a Ti screw kit sometime, that uses hex head. So keep an eye out for that.

RC Hacker- are you Ancientsgamer on hobbytalk??

If you goto---- Fastners express you can get metric hex head screws to replace those posi screws for under $20, that is what I did and I donot regret it.

I have the Integy tools and they are great!!! For a set-up board just goto Lowes' or Homedepot and pick up a composite board shelf that is at least 12"x18" and that will do just fine for under $4.......
