I was wondering if someone could give me a "general" starting setup for when I rebuild the car. Last time I raced it was on an extremely bumpy asphalt track using foams.

Thanks

Hi there everyone....
I'm thinking about trying rubber racing this year, and mi3.5 always caught my eye.... what is diffrence between mi3 and mi3.5?

And since mi4 is almost here anyone is selling their mi3.5?

Thanx

Check the setup sheets on the Schumacher site www.racing-cars.com under the tech info section.

I personally don't have any setups for the car cause I never owned one but maybe someone can pass theirs along???

He'll be making his comeback at the end of this month at the Canadian Challenge, soon to be called the Schumacher Challenge since both Chris Goetz and Mike Haynes are supposed to be running in it. Stay tuned!

I have a Mi 3.5 and I noticed there aren't any small holes drilled at the front or rear of the chassis for balancing, how /are you guys doing it?
Thanks

I use a piece of string and run it under the front and rear towers, then simply pick the car up. Generally I just eyeball the middle of the tower, but you can make a notch if you want to be really precise about it. However I've had good luck with just eyeballing to center the string.
