These are Randy's bodies. I think that a little pink is ok but you can use too much.

A little New Years update for everyone.

I got the chance to run at a newer facility here in Tampa for the first time, SS Raceway that is BRAND NEW asphalt, also where we run dirt oval on Friday nights.

I had a very unpleasant start when I got to the track with a blown power supply (or so I thought) Ron Harrison sold me an awesome Muchmore and I was back in business. First thing was to put a charge in my LiPo and plugged my Ice in and smoke came billowing out like a pothead at a Pink Floyd concert. (My smoked Ice was 100% my own fault, NO Duratrax smear campaign intended here!!!!!) One quick phone call to my favorite boss Shawn Palmer, and I had 3 chargers and a backup power supply with in 30 minutes.

Shawn, Ron, and for that matter Austin Harrison, thank you SO much today, you donít know how much I appreciated all of what you did.

After some initial setup and ďtinkeringĒ with my new Speed Passion powered MI3, I had one of the faster cars in the stock class, and it came in VERY nicely just in time for the main.

Unfortunately on turn 3 of the main my radio had different plans than working, and I broke the steering wheel return spring inside my M8 case, and on top of that the insides of case are pretty torn up. 30 seconds into my main I was finished, an interesting day of racing at best.

I hope you all found this to be and interesting tidbit to ponder before you go to sleep tonight and if any of you have a spare M8, or M11 and want to donate to what Iím calling the Adam donít have no radio foundation please call me at the shop next week or feel free to email me here.

I do want to wish a very special Happy New Year to Shawn Palmer for this position I hold with Schumacher, he is the very best at what he does and I couldnít have a better boss. Also to ALL of Team Schumacher and also to all of the privateer racers that run our products at your local tracks, every single one of you make these cars, this team, this brand and most importantly this entire hobby a greater environment for everyone.

I wanted to send a quick thank you to Ronnie Setser for putting on an extremely fun race today, I look forward to running the Wednesday night series.



KEEP DOING WHAT YOU DO!!!!!!!!



Adam

I liked the Kissmmee setup better than the Daytona setup you sent. At SS Speedway I could roll on the power through the sweeper on to the straight without full steering lock and I could lift to 1/2 throttle and stay on it through the sweeper after the straight. This was with a 5.5 on LiPo!

One change though...I used the new Schuey 1* alloy hubs and set the over all rear toe to ~2.75*...it was dialed!

I have never had that much steering in a Mod sedan

Hey are you going to need the Mohawk body for Minnreg?
