You can call up Adrain (Shumacher USA) and order all those parts.

Mr. G- I would go with the 3mm. There is basically no chassis flex.

Corner Speed,

I race on a seal asphalt track and at times I struggle for traction so I was thinking that the 2MM would flex to help the traction, but could be stuck switching to 3mm for indoor carpet.

I found all the parts except the machined pully, I found the part number under new products at Shu USA, but it not available yet U2568,2569,2570. I see the pulley on RW racing, but how do you order from RW racing?

Why do you want a metal pully? It makes it heavier A tad bit.

Fireblade.....the RW pulley is machined plastic not metal. Its not molded like the stock pulley and runs more "true" because its not molded. Like we said before molded parts can be alittle off when they are molded.....example TC3 aka "Tool Box". Also with the RW pulley it has the fences built in so they are lighter then stock b/c you dont have to run the side caps/fences. The other bonus to the RW pulley is that you do not have to set the drivetrain so the high spots on the diff gears are in the same spot. Thanks to them being machined rather then molded. And for the Alum pulley on the layshaft thats a small enough pulley that it wont add too much weight and will last longer then a plastic one.

Mr G ...... see Scott at STRC Hobbies at the Ripon R/C Speedway. He has the grey belts & the Warpspeed chassis in stock. As far as to what you should get. It would be a waste to buy a 2mm chassis as we only have a littile over a month before carpet starts. If you need setup help, I've got a setup that has been working really good for me. I run a 2mm chassis but the setup was originaly developed on a stock chassis car and should work for you. I will deffinetly change to a 3mm chassis for carpet. Email me if you need some help

Default Warpspeed Chassis

for those of you who have the warpspeed chassis and are using the outer motor plate mounting position, how do you use the belt tensioner? I was thinking about just putting some shims in between to space it out a bit.

Why would the 3 mm chassis be better than the 2 mm chassis.Would it not be better to use the stiffer upper plate by schumacher.How heavy is the 3 mm chassis.Would a lighter weight be better for stock.I'm new to this hobby can any one answer these questions.thx

Not really better for stock or anything, it all depends on the track. If ur running carpet alot get 3. If asphalt, 2 it also depends on the traction of the track. This all depends on chassis flex ofr traction. That help?

Well,Ya its gonna seem stiffer cuz its 3mm not 2,the thicker the stiffer. Also there really no weight difference cuz once the car is goin so fast, the car is gonna "glide" the weight and plus there is really no difference in the weight. MAbe a few grams.

Ran the Mission again last night with the castor adjusted to 8.5deg and the front sway bar to calm down the rear end.
With the sway bar it made the rear end worse with regards to loosing traction on power out of the corners. Can't figure that one out as I thought the sway bar would take away some front end grip and keep the rear end quiet???
Anyway, with the sway bar removed and just the 8.5 deg of castor the car was much smoother out of the tight corners. I may try moving the front shocks into the #4 position to fine tune the reaction of the front end a touch more.

Overall very impressive and thanks for all the tips. I have a good base set up now to play from.

Default machined pulleys

Where can those new machined pulleys be found? Are they only direct through Schumacher? And what's the price on 'em.

Thanks!
