I personally run the LRP because it is said to be better with the Orion brushless equipment that I use. Havent tried a Novak firsthand to know for sure, but that is what I was told.. The Novak stuff seems to work fine when using a Novak motor if thats what you plan on using.

i have the novak and the lrp, i like the lrp better, easier to setup, and when changing to brushed motor, less wiring hassle.

Got to run my "big track" setup today on a med size track and it was still awesome! Not sure if anyone has had a chance to try it, but it's the best setup I've had in years

Well, PW is still the fast guy on the team. Randy Caster is right there too.

The guys at Schu USA are not hard core racers but PW and I are still here on Schu Corner along with the rest of the Schu drivers around the globe to offer support and share info.

That said Shawn Palmer has done some great things to get the team more organized so everything is looking good.

Saw the ligtweight bulkheads for the first time yesterday, they are being manufactured so it will be a while before they come in, apparently they shave 30g off the weight.

They don't look too different, they are slightly narrower, so extra shims have to be used to keep the pivots etc where they normally are and they are made froma better alloy.

Where the motor mounts, instead of having the large oval with slots in it most of that metal is missing and you just get two slots for the motor screws.

Should have taken some photo's Doh!

Hi Skiddins

Jonny Dronfield told me it needed extra shims to keep the same set up, but after speaking to Phil Booth he said that they cannot be narrower, as the eccentrics for the diff wouldn't fit. So no extra shims are required.
