BTW, The bars in the X-cutout will be much wider for more surface mounting for your speedo and reciever.

Reallysweet Paul! Looks like it will work really WELL! One question though, what the deal with running rear arms on the front? And is it a quick mod?

Dark- that's the Titanium screw kit from Schumacher. I got that kit from Adrian and Paul and it looks awesome!! Normally I wouldn't spend much money on screw hardware, but these are soooo much better than those posiscrews that came with the car!! Very precise.

Paul- the video is ready- sorry for the wait- we'll be shipping the cd to you within a few days...

Bigdog: whats the part number for the screw kit? I assume that they use hex heads, so what size do they use? How much did it cost you?

Dark, I think I paid like $64 for it from Schumacher USA, but it might be a little cheaper at Speedtech. Try them. You have to find the Ti screw set page I think, then choose the set for the Mission- they have them for other cars too...

Default One Way Diff Problems...

At the last race I found my Schuie had great steering as usual. But then the steening got better and better through the 3rd heat. It turned out that my one way diff had become a two way diff because the pin that holds the one way axle locked to the steel plate and the pulley had started to rotate ontop of the steel plate. Interestingly a similar problem to the pulleys.

Has anyone else had this problem. The Diff is only 6 races old. Can you buy the steel plate as an option part because I really wont be happy if I have to replace the whole diff.

Maybe not the right forum but what do people think of the Schumacher cells vs. the bigger brands like Trinity. Where are the best places to mailorder?
Thanks,

BagofSkill.....If you contact Schumacher UK about the problem, they should warranty the center plate with the new one piece plate. If not, they do sell it individually.

Part # for the Titanium screw kit is #TR8545 and retails for $65.99.

BagoSkill,
The cells depend on where you get them USA? or UK? I know that a company called spyked racing used to match cells for them. in fact I used to work with doug the owner of spyked racing and the cells we were matching for them were very nice. I'm not sure if Schumacher USA is still having spyked match cells or if they were only doing this for team drivers.

I have finally converted to a shcumacher weeee haaa
