IMO, generally speaking YES. But there are some guys who can tune/tweak (some methods illegal, some not) the hell outuva Stocker. Irregardless though, the 'meat' of of this debate highly depends on set-up & driving skills.....
The deal is this- the faster guys at any track is fast with either one.....BUT Brushless is the new GOTTA HAVE technology. I'm sold!!

Hi Mates
On Kev's setup It says 1.5mm Pivot block spacers At rear settings If I do that 2mm Does it gives me more rear end grip Or what kind of effect does it makes ?
I'm not racing on a high grip carpet ,It is medium Grip...
Also What are the rates of anti Roll bars comes with kit?
Many Thanx

This is a bit of a problem....the 13.5 with the BONDED rotor is pretty close to the brushed motor...the 13.5 with the SINTERED rotor is WAY faster than the brushed motor...In Australia ...in Brisbane where I race the 13.5 with bonded rotor is allowed to run against the brushed motors but the 13.5 with the sintered rotor is illegal...the 13.5 with the bonded rotor is the EX13.5...hope this helps

what's a brushed motor????? You're sponsored by Orion right......A few guys out this way have had a harder time getting use to their motors compared to Novak and LRP. I'll never go back to brushed again. I can't even run any 19 turn classes at big events anymore. I'm too spoiled by the brushless stuff.

I picked up a used Mi3 to run ruber tires and it came with a one-way. It does not have a pulley mounted on it however and when I quickly tried the pulley from my spool, the internal hole on the spool pulley was too small to fit on the oneway. It goes over the outdrives, but not the center section. Did I rush too fast and miss something or is there a seperate pulley for the one way?

The Orion BL stuff has a ton of power, I can drive a 4.5 pretty well, but I gotta get a throttle profile figured out for the 3.5. Brushed may be old technology, but I have no problem running it still I didnt take my V2 mod motor apart once at the IIC all through qualifying and the main and didnt lose any power.

There is a different pulley needed for the 1-way. You could ream out the hole in the spool pulley but you might risk having a slightly lopsided pulley that way.

all right . . .thanks for the info Randy. I think I'll ream out the spool pulley . . .I am thinking the 3 screw holes will keep everything lined up and running true regardless of any lopsidednes in the center hole. Now I just gotta make sure the three holes re the same spacing as on the spool. Thanks again.

Default New style Schumacher Mi3 shirt.

It looks like this shirt may see production. I don't have specific details in regards to pricing but I'm trying to get an idea of how many people would be interested.

I'm looking at dye-sublimination instead of traditional silk screening. This in theory last longer and does not suffer the same "cracking" effects you find with silkscreened shirts. With dye-s the color is embedded into the fabric.

Anyway if you have any interested in buying one please PM/Email me so I can get an idea of quantity. Most likely I will only order a specific amount that have been prepaid. When I have more details I will post them.

You could also set up a store at Printfection, that way anyone can order it and you could make a commission each shirt, and not have to carry inventory.. The quality is great, I have had several different shirts printed there.

Did my first shake down run on carpet with the Mi3 this weekend, and all I can say is WOW!

I stuck pretty much to the manual's carpet set up, with only a few changes. The car was just beautiful.
