I saw a Michael Somebody from South Afrika on the forms that is the only person out there driving a schumacher,

unlike Xray and Tamiya, Schumacher doesn't need to prove anything about being the best touring car.

2010 guys, its all ours

I think Ivan Laptev from Russia is running a Schumacher... at least he has done so for several years and was still running Mi3 at the Euros in August. But he's most likely not going to win the worlds

I use a thick piece of solder (as a wire) and I notched my shock tower as close to center as I could get. It works but I know its surely not 100%

I use a tweak station and simply slide the car forward so that the back of the chassis is balancing on the center bar

That's a good idea Grease, never thought of that before.

I have a question regarding the standard steering linkage setup on the Mi3.5. In short, what handling differences will we get from going to the new setup? That is, going to a shorter center bellcrank and running the middle hole on the new steering hubs. My steering links were always swept back slightly before, which makes the steering a little smoother and less aggressive from my experience (due to a lower ackerman angle). I just put the new setup on my car and the links are now parallel to my dogbones, so I'm going to expect that to make the steering a little more aggressive. I just dont know what difference the shorter center bellcrank will make.

The shorter bellcrank causes 2 effects. First, it makes the steering a bit slower, which can be a good thing if you are running rubber tires, fast servo and fast steering hand. With too fast steering action the car breaks front traction too easily on rubbers. Second, for the same width of bellcrank, it causes a bit bigger ackermann angle, simply because it will turn more (in degrees) for the wheels to turn the same amount. But this also depends on the bellcrank location and position of the tie rods.
I like the shortest one, it calms the front end down a bit. Had to use the medium lately when the short one broke and I didn't have a replacement handy... car was less comfortable for me to drive. Then again, I'm not a world class racer as well, someone with a more precise steering hand might have a different opinion.
