BigDog, I flip the threaded collar over as you say but I also use the plastic centering collar like you would for off-road, just so the springs won't rub on the body. I run softer though. Silver front w/ 50wt and green rear w/ 40wt (Trinity). With the Schuie springs I ran black and blue. And I only changed to Assoc to get the car to sit down.

The thing with the shuie spings is that when they paint them they dont sand or round off the paint off them so it makes the uneven. The weights are about the same and will hold up in the same conditions.

Hey All,


Just got the mission pro and have a few ?? for ya.

1. Is there a real difference in the way the car drives using the inboard toe options?

2. Which of the pulleys does everyone use, 17 or 20?

3. Anyone found a replacement screw kit for the car? Those posi screws are real gems, LOL.

I'll probably have a few more ?? to come yet. Thanks for the help.

Hey Gary, Ok dude, the inboard toe is about the best way to get traction man. I run 3 on my rear and of course 0 in the front. but if you have a high traction track run about 2 or 2 1/2 or mabe even 1. Well The 20 pulley is actually a lil bit faster than the 17 but it depends on the track.

1) Using the 2 degree inboard rear toe offers a shorter wheelbase and more forward traction. Obviously, when you check the rear toe, you set it with disregard to the toe in the arm positioning. In other words, 2 degree rear toe equals 2 degrees whether you have the blocks at 0 or 2.

2) Most of us are running the 20 tooth. If for nothing else it is larger and doesn't bind the belt as much.

3) Both Schumacher USA and Speedtech R/C have the Titanium Racing Ti screw kit for the Mission. The screws are Allen head countersunk 3mm and have a great looking finish.

Cornerspeed, sorry about not making HT yesterday but came down with a cold and can barely cope with work let a lone extra stuff. Slept most of the the day and was miserable the rest. Will make SoCal on the 26th though.
