Hey Kevin....It might be possible with a plate, but I will not know for atleast 2 more weeks. Have you found that it is better on carpet/foam with the raised roll centers?

Hi all,

If I'm right the Axis2 did not have a 6mm adjustable wheelbase, am I correct? Ok, you could change it ~2 mm at the front. So this will be a new tuning aid on the mission? how will it be done??

Greeting

So whats the point of having the belt run from diff to diff? I mean what advantage does it provide? The car just reminds me a bit too much of my '99pro. I guess I just need to see more information about it.

Better yet, some real life pictures.

That's an ineresting comment, I was just talking to a fellow racer about this as well, seems as if Schumacher has been able to "keep the lid" on this car and sneak pictures of it. All other cars (that I can think of) there was tons of publicity and spy photos available well before the car was available!

As for pictures, most 'spy' pictures are released by the mfr to sturr interest. In the case of the Mission, I understand that they have made some small changes to the chassis and the car may be slightly different from the computer generated pictures currently availible. Schumacher usually doesn't let out too much info when they are developing a new car since it almost stops sales on the existing car as everyone waits for the 'latest/greatest'. Only 33 more days...

I didn't really think of that. Most of the other Schumacher cars did kind of pop up out of nowhere. This is about as early as they have ever let pictures out.

Harsh: I think its also a case of the R/C publications aren't going to go after the pics as hard as they would if the car were by saaay.....I don't know.....Assciated or Losi. They aren't going to send guys with cameras to every test session like they did with the TC3 when it was still in testing. They just don't do that type of stuff with Schumacher, no matter how many titles they win.

So whats the point of having the belt run from diff to diff?

It's all about efficiency I think. The smaller the radius that the belts have too make the lesser the efficiency. Also how further the belt is following a gear the more resistance there is. Thats why they mention zero angled belts.
By going diff to diff they save some weight on the layshaft but on the other hand gain weight on the rear diff (but the diffs will be lighter then the old ones I assume). Also the layshaft makes more revs then the diffs which makes it more important the save weight on that spot. Not sure of that.

I sure "believe" it will be a more efficient car. Maybe somebody from schumacher can tell us the real story

When I last spoke to Schumacher about the new car they sure where optimistic about it. They are saying it is the most efficient car on the market paying particular attentiopn to the Losi and TC3

That seems to be the modern day selling point, efficiency. Gotta have that efficiency!

I don't care! As long as it handles as well as all the other Schumacher's I've owned, I'd be happy!

It will be more efficient as there are less tight rollovers in the belts. The main belt has a very loose wrap, rather than the tight one round the layshaft pulley that we currently have.

Currently the car has been looking very promising in the testing that has been on this side of the pond!!

Has anyone ever found a Titanium Nitrite (gold) coated shock shaft that is the correct length to fit into the schumacher shock???
