I thought it made a big difference to the car, and I liked the difference it made, Try it, and if you dont like it then don't do it again. simple
I'll give them a try after the snowbirds, wont have any time to test before then.

Gotta remember though, before I came to Schumacher I was a TRF driver, so I do have a good idea of how the shocks feel and the differences I listed on the last page are how they get that feel..

jonny
Jonas used my exact set up for the finals (with new cells forward chassis and top deck) and although his individual lap times were similar to his set up from qualification the overall race times were better. So basically the cars was much easier to drive fast and consistant.

Kirby: hope you can make it to TITC. would be good to have a fellow shuie guy there to work out set ups with. as it is there's only one guy listed with an mi3 from OZ. thanks for the tip! and see you there if ever ... suggest you email that guy again. I know for a fact that one of the guys listed in the entry list is surely not going to go (Jason dela Cruz) as somthing came up and he will have to beg off. If you want, maybe i can ask my buddy jason to email the guy at TITC to advise him of his pull out and if you want to take the slot. maybe you can email me you addy so he can copy (cc) you in the email. lemme know!

PW: this helps alot! will keep that in mind when i do testing. btw, the pic below ... is that your reedy car? just checking since i have the set up as a baseline. also, AdriaM mentioned you had some new killer mod/asphalt set up ... care to share? an email would be great (gesoler@globetel.com.ph) ... thanks again for the help!
here is his killer mod set up

They do...



Nobody has heard from them since the 2000 Citrus Bowl when they beat UF, and weren't from heard since until this year, which they lost.

Basketball on the other hand...

Some resources for you guys regarding setups

For the MI3 - Setup sheets MI3, that seems to include setups from Schumacher, for you on previous pages and others places.

For cars prior to the MI3 such as MI2, MI2EC - http://www.petitrc.com/view_news.php?id=4622, scroll down a bit, 2/3 of the bottom

Ok cool, I already had Shaniqua on the car, pretty good guess.

Foam car is almost done minus some 70wt front shock oil that I had to order this morning... wasn't prepared for anything over 50wt.
