Wanted to give props to all the Schuie drivers at Snowbirds, it looks like we had a handful in the A's, especially for Seabass laying it down and placing him 4th on the grid in 19T with the big guns....keep it up man...your time is coming!

Wow... gotta love these new ones. Haven't felt this safe driving a TC since my TA05.

Hey, Metro Hobbies is in your area, why don't you just pop in?

Schumacher is a boutique brand so you wont be able to get it any cheaper off the internet, and Metro set you up really good if you buy a kit there.

metro never drop their prices.

they want $695aud for the mi3. while its a beautiful car, i simply can afford that much.

not that im disputing their (or anyones) prices, its just a bit steep for me atm.

www.speedtechrc.com sells the Mi3 and ships to Aus. And they always have low prices.

Yeah, and I guess it makes the difference. I was the fastest in 17.5 yesterday. A lost body clip (leading to...) a tucked body at the tire well (3 corners from the finish!!! ) kept me from claiming glory for the Mi3.

No biggie though. Finally got me a really good rubber/carpet set up and have no fear running the car.

Default Carpet Nats

Congrats to all the Schui drivers at the snowbirds, racing looked pretty good.

Just want to see how many Schui guys are planning to be at the carpet nats in Omaha in March?

Good job DarkSeid

Slyts6, I would agree Speedtechrc.com is a great place to pick up a kit.


I wanted to give a great big thanks to all the Schui drivers in the Birds

Goetz as always laying it down and putting it in the show

"LOCAL HOT SHOE" Bryan B-Fud Ford AKA Hollywood, for dropping his in the show (twice), and darn near stealing it with all the local support in house for him.

It was great meeting each and everyone of you guys finally, I had a blast and couldn't be happier with our team results.

Thumbs up

I'm trying to assemble a front one-way for my second car, and the store I'm placing an order from doesn't have the complete U2753 HD One-Way Assembly in stock, but it looks like all of the individual parts are there. Can someone tell me exactly what parts and part numbers make up the complete one-way?

Hi Darkseid

Could you post your carpet/rubber set up or email it to me @ madbrushracing@googlemail.com?

Many thanks

Tony

Congrats to B-fed and Chris for thier "A" main runs. The entire Team worked together and did well. I didnt get any sleep, but it was great to see everyone again and meet some new faces as well.

Special thanks to my "pit monkey" Adam for the parts support, tearing down my foam car after what has been described as a "Richard Petty moment", and good times off the track.

Had a blast and will try to make the trip from Hawaii to Vegas in September.

Mike
