Hey Kevin...This was the first car they tested in England and now we will be testing it here in the states.

They are building and fitting most of the preproduction car for testing. Next weekend they will be flying in Teemu & Marcus (Top 2 Schumacher Euro drivers) for a week long testing sesson of the preproduction car. The battery placement is slightly different than the car below and it now has the new drivetrain. .....

With the new drivetrain the spur and layshaft assembly will be behind the motor and that will make for more room for the electronics.......The Mission will look much cleaner with the new drivetrain.

Darkside.....There are several engineers at Schumacher that work together and make a team. They are always developing each and every car they produce. Everytime a racer like yourself calls Schumacher to tell them something new you have learned to better your car or a team driver discovers something that improves a current model they put that into the next car. This is why Schumacher seems to have a new car atleast once a year. They try and take advantage of new technology and pass that along to the racer.

Axis 2 Steering post bearings

Somebody help... When installing bearings in the steering post there is a washer included in the package that has a raised border around the inside hole.... WHERE DOES IT GO? I figure it goes on the bottom but do you have to file the bottom plate so the washer sits flat? or what? THANKS

It goes nowhere. It was used in top of everything in some older models. And PW, true. When I tell Teemu my opinions and suggestions he really listens, and that's a good sign.
