not sure if they are online as pics..

contact the guys at Schu USA to get em if they havent already...

we jsut got a batch of 400 sets...they kick ass..Look like a proline velocity, but firmer, lighter, strong...

I like the fact they are larger in diameter and width...it gives less airgap, and less sidewall deformation using standard takeoff inserts...worked nicely with other inserts such as sorex typ b med and firm, also try sorex type a medium for high bite.

Those rims can be spotted on the winning cars in the presentation photos, and pit photos of my car.

Nice race and pictures. Congratulations.

Can the Kwik-Klips be used to alter wheelbase with?

How many tooths are there on the delivered spur gear?

Thanks.

King-G...I was using almost that exact setup, with the exception that I was using hole 3 on the upper shock mount..in my opinion the chassis roll was way to pronounced on the sweeper without sway bars (and was pretty bad even with sway bars), so I'm going to thicker oil (60) and stiffer springs (red), and may try standing them up another hole in back.

One major difference...its cooler here...

Having said all of that, they key is go with what works..obviously this was working for you guys...Congratulations on your wins!!

BTW...cool looking track...

Hey seaball....No problem, thanks for the compliments

I must say that I'm a little jealous of the indoor racing you guys have, although I wont miss the cold weather I really wish I could race more on foam tire carpet so I could fine tune the Schuy's, but I don't think our guys did to bad for racing foam tires twice a year

PW...have the RW pulleys for front one way come in yet? Adrian asked that I check back late in the week, as he was hoping they might come in...when they do I need to call in an order for one and some batteries...

Do those revlite wheels come premounted, or is that just the CS tires/wheels?

Just cause its raining and I cant race doesnt mean I cant buy stuff...Ho Ho Ho...

THanks

Was interested in maybe getting a Mission for x-mas. Have been running the xxx-s for over a year and have always wanted to get back to running a schumacher (ran a sst99). My question is I know how schumacher keeps its kits on the cutting edge in terms of updating...does schumacher have a new kit on the near horizon or will the mission be the main car for awhile? Like I said I would love to get a new schumacher and any info would be great....

Cole...dont know why the kwik clips couldnt be used for wheelbase adjustment...except they may be too thick, but I'm pretty sure the dia of the upper and lower hinge pins is the same...

The kit comes with an 86 tooth spur...I notice on a lot of the setups the guys are running 92 tooth... the gearing is pretty tall with the 86 tooth spur and the 20 tooth internal gear which most prefer to run..if I remember you're running on a tight indoor track, and with the 86 spur and 20 tooth main gear you'd probably be looking at something like a 22 tooth pinion for a P2K2 stocker, or a final ratio around 7.1

Hope that helps....

Jeff...you might check back a few pages, as if my aging memory serves me right this was a discussion topic...and I believe the concensus was that Schumacher was staying with the Mission, and there wasn't a new one coming out...or you can call the guys at Schumacher USA and ask them...you won't talk to a greater customer support crew than Paul or Adrian, and they'll give you the straight poop...
