Well guys, I'm proud to say that I took Schumacher to another win and a second place finish this past weekend at the Beat the Heat Race in Memphis, TN. I don't mean to brag, but it was sweet to finally win something. I won a $50 gift certificate and a TC2 for mod sedan, and another $40 gift certificate for second in stock sedan. The truth is that I don't normally run that well, but it just happened to be "my weekend". I had my MoJo with me all weekend...lol . I originally thought that running both sedan classes AND helping run the race would mess me up since there would be no time for repairs, mistakes, etc. But I think it worked just the opposite- I KNEW there could be no mistakes, so I concentrated really hard on driving clean and never had to repair one thing in the mains. I didn't set the fastest lap in either class, but I was close, and since I didn't catch any major pipes I was way more consistent than normal. We ran triple A mains in stock and I got second in all three!! lol- now that's consistent! Mod sedan was the best race I've ever run. My friend Tom (Hobbies X-treme in Shreveport, LA) was here and we raced each other for like 2 hours!! Ok, it was only 4 minutes because it took him 1 minute to catch up from a bump at the beginning, but it seemed like 2 hours!! I've never had the shakes that bad before!

Well sorry for carryng on, I just wanted to share my joy. I like reading when other people do well on here, too. So don't be afraid to share your own accomplishments...

Default Schumacher diff problems!!!

I don't know if any of you guys had problems with the one-way outdrives on the Mission.I think a used about ten batts and the one-way rollers fell out.Is it a factory fault or did I do something wrong?Any help will be apreciated.

JacoSa,
I had the same problem, the pins fall out when they wear in. Adrian told me to just put them back in their slots and the diff should run fine. Do you have a gen 1 or 2 one way.....i had a gen one and my oneway ran funny because the center shaft assembly broke into two pieces. the new gen 2 oneways have a one piece center shaft assembly. Anyways, just call Adrian at Schumacher USA and he will send you out a new outdrive right away.

Also, for those of you who have the Warpspeed chassis, did you guys have to change your setup from what you guys were using with your original chassis?

Tc3 Should be no comparison to a mission. Iam in sportsmans class and I whip those associated A*ses With the mission. The TC3 is too old, It needs to be updated.

Fireblade- no offense or anything, but have you heard about that new factory racer namedd Barry something-or-other???

TC3s are still very fast cars. I just happen to like the Mission, and Schumacher USA has been very helpful and concerned about even a small time racer like me. I have talked to Paul and Adrian plenty of times and I consider them to be some of the best company reps in the business.

BTW- thanks for the help last week Adrian- it paid off!!

James: With the Warpspeed chassis it is reccomended that you run a stiffer setup...say one spring and 10-20wt oil since the suspension is working harder and the weight is now transfering differently. Hope that helps...

Congrats Big Dog on a great weekend!

Wait until you get up to expert. Up there any car can win. You're doing well with your mission......keep it up. That out dated TC3 won the Revo race in expert stock. See you in about two weeks. In case you're wondering who I am..........think TALL!

I agree with Racer X suggestion on Mission/Warpspeed chassis set-up. The less the chassis flexes, the more it uses the suspension. With the stock chassis, some of the chassis flex acts as suspension.

The Warpspeed chassis is more sensitive to suspension adjustments. You can see and feel the change easier, whether it is good or bad. I like the 3mm myself. I race on high traction and lower traction asphalt race tracks. I actually been doing better on the lower traction tracks with the 3mm.

Well you guys(or gals) this coming weekend is my first big race at the regional 9 at reflex r/c. I hope to do good but I need more cornerspeed. Any suggestions would help a regular racer like me.

Run the Front one-way, Its works like a charm. You need to relearn how to drive the car again
