Do you have pictures of the inboard toein setup? Im not quite sure how it works but it sounds good.

Also regarding setup. i have been a fan of 1 hole pistons and realtively soft oil(30-50 front and 30 in rear.) I notice quite a few setups use 60wt and 2 hole pistons. What is the difference for you guys who have tried both? I race on medium-high grip fast asphalt circuits.

I tried going 2 hole piston and keeping the soft oil and the car definetly slouched more in corners and lost steering generally. The 1 hole piston setup is extremely fast but very aggresive and twitchy. it is also very susceptible to condition changes.

Thaks

PS All this talk about Putnam brushes cracks me up. My surname is Putnam and I keep seeing me name everywhere! LOL. racerX can you recommend a 12 turn motor with his brushes?

Lets get away from the trem inboard toe in. We are really taking about "Arm Sweep" as in making the rear arms sweep forward. Arm sweep as no direct effect on rear toe in. Rear toe in is still set with turnbuckles. I just want to make sure people dont confuse the two adjustments.

The Mission will include the ability to have 2deg of forward sweep on the rear arms and 2deg of rearward sweep on the front arms in addition to the standard parrallel hinge pin position.

I want all of you to understand one thing. This will be the best car we have EVER made! I have talked with the drivers that have tested the Axis 2.5/Mission Prototype and they are going 3-4/10th's faster with the prototype than with their tricked out A2's. Keep in mind that the Mission will have a better drivetrain, layout, balance and more accurately made parts than the A2.5 Prototype. You guys have no idea how bad I want to get my hands on final version this car!

Oasis: The reason you mostly see setups with the two hole pistons is that most everyone has decided to just use two holes as a starting point and adjust with shock oil from there.

I think that Putnam is now doing mods, email him @ PutnamPro@AOL.Com

I just bought myself a Losi XXX-S for my Birthday (9/28). Looks like I'll be buying a Schumacher Mission, for Thanksgiving!

...and its not a Mission, it's a hybred (Axis2.5) car used for testing chassis layouts. But thanks for posting it again (for anyone who missed it)

inboard toe/sweep will also shorten the wheelbase, which helps traction. On the proto car there is 2 sets of holes in the chassis, use the inner for "inboard" and the outer for current parallel set-up.

Using more pistion holes with thicker oil makes the car better on bumpy tracks. Is isn't all that un-usual for us to run 100wt 4 hole on a couple of bumpy tracks.

Yes Matt it will also shorten the wheel base but its a little more then a shorten wheel base. You can use the front upper arms in the rear and that will shorten the wheel base but does not effect the "Arm sweep" which has a greater effect on traction and car performance. I have tried it both ways and the "arm sweep" is better then short wheel base.

Kevin,
I know you race on carpet so this question is for you (or anyone else who can help).

My friend has TC3. He is a Green Machine 3 with TRC plaids up front and purple in the rear. He is using a 76 tooth spur. What pinion size would you recommed for a tight track where the top gus turn 10 second laps?

Also, does anyone know a brush/spring combo for the GM3 that will give the most power. Thanks everyone.

Who is Schumacher's main designer. I mean ever since the Yokomo MR4TC (with Masami doing most of the work there)came out, its pretty regular to see the magazines cover who was the main designer of the new cars. I doubt that Schumacher will get the same attention in the magazines, so figured I'd ask here.

Is it one main guy, or a team of people. How long do they usually spend designing a new car?

TY......one of the tracks that I race at they run about the same lap times and most of the TC3 guys run 64 pitch and they run 26 to 28pinion and 100 spur with rubber tires. Not too many run stock that I know but on my car I go up 2 to 3 teeth when running foamies b/c the smaller size tire. I would say start with a 29 or 30 with the 64 pitch but not sure on 48 pitch, you can convert it and get the drive ratio and just figure out what size 48 pitch pinion you need.

For the Greenie 3 I like the trinity black(on the neg side) and trinity red springs. I also make a small hole in the face of the brush on the neg side, I do this with an exacto. I have tried many things and this seems to run the best run to run.
