Thanks Corey, just a couple of ??. What position is the ball stud in on the knuckles f/r ? What piston are you running in the shocks? What are the size of the clips you are using on the upper arm? And where are you measuring your droop at? Thanks again.

WHoops sorry Gary,and others. Totally overlooked that. lol

Ball Stud Position: Inner
Pistons: 2 hole f/r
Droop: Measuring it by aligning the gauge flat on the chass to the bottom of the arms.
Castor Clips: Not sure how many MM they are. Can some help Gary out with that question, KevinK maybe?

you must be kidding, what are these supposed design flaws? The mission is without doubt the best kit I've ever owned with a Corally a close second. Associated doesn't even come close.

rangulo, are you trying to start some shit?..

there is no new mission for release, and the crap you are stating about using Losi Hubs is laughable..I doubt that they can possibly fit.

schumachers cvd's in my opinion are as good as any other I have used, Including Associated (m,i,p) Corally's, Tamiyas etc. I have yet to break one, and the wear rate on teh joints is fantastic.

I don't doubt that he has seen this... and remember the top drivers he speaks of are the ones from his track, NOT Schuie sponcered drivers. Racers will transform any part they can to make any car handle better, in their own minds.... I mean after the X-ray came out with a c-hub suspension for the T1 that uses the same geometry as the TC3/XXX-S alot of racers felt left out.... I mean we all didn't have a $200 option for our car that we need to compete...LOL!!!!

There is only one design flaw that the Mission has.... Schumacher made it too perfect the first time!!!!!

But I don't see Schumacher designing a new suspension for the car, after all the one on the Mission has worked flawlessly for soo many years and soo many chassis layouts.....

Well, if there was a new kit, they would announce it. The losi hubs I heard fit WITH modification. Plus, its only been a lil over a year since the last one, they are probably gonna wait longer because the mission is dominating so well

Guys you can put just about any part on any other car with enough time and know how. Putting Losi hubs on the car will work but you would have to use cvd's from another car. And as far as them comming out with a new car Im sure that they are working on something for later. Schumacher is not a company that just sits back on a current design unlike some other companies.....they are always looking to make it better in anyway they can. So Im sure that there is a new car they are working on but how soon will we see it who knows a year maybe more.
