If I should come up with something new, it would be a re-vised rear diff, which makes it possible to use a "center" one-way pulley. This one-way, should be an option part. I think this will make the drivetrain even more efficient.

In addition, those shocks with pistons that can be altered; Wouldnt it be nice, if it could be done from the outside, without the need of opening the damper?

And the option of using Kwik Klips for altering the wheelbase? (Maybe it's already possible, I dont got the car yet....)

I also find the steps between two springs (ex: red to yellow) are a little too big. Around 50 g/mm between each spring would be nice.

The Xray kwik klips work great on the Mission and they're pretty cheap- here's the link for the part # Team Xray Kwilk Klips

Paul, my 02 on the racer upgraded kit.

Threaded shocks are a must, the titanium set, quick clips, grey front belt. Maybe 50 bucks more then the standard carbon kit as value is always important. Maybe you can do a carpet edition with one way and Carpet top deck.

One suggestion, maybe you guys can have the shocks threaded all the way down the tube kinda like Losi, or make some more spring rates available.

Thanks

BTW is Ti Racing going to be making Ti Bones ?

Those new Yokomo shocks look PIMP- has anyone measured them to see if they would work on the Mission?

A carpet Setup would be slick. What top plate do you recommend using on med to high bite indoor concreat tracks? Threaded shocks in a kit makes it much more attractive from a racers point of view. I went throught the xxx-s and having to buy the kit then a new set of shocks was a downer. Now they have put the G-Plus together and it is ready to race. I would pay the extra 30 to 40 to get a complete racer level kit.

Exclamation HANG ON!

(n00b alert on)
Hiya,

I just read the thread (ahum.. 118 pages, a lot to browse through), and I noticed someone posting that the SST Sport is discontinued..
Strange, since from the UK online shop I just ordered one without any problems (and not seeing anything on the schumacher site about it)... am I f*****?

I haven't received a confirmation email as well.. so...

Default Setups

I should have my Mission any day now. Was wondering if all Receivers and ESC can be used if I put my electronics on the bottom chassis, assuming that is the best place for them. Or do I have to go to micro sizes?

Also, I am having some trouble searching for an asphault setup that has shown success in these threads. I am still looking but help is appreciated.

Thanks

Well then you weren't looking very hard ....Editable Mission setups

The smaller the better on your electronics (IMO). The Warpspeed chassis has a little more room to work with.

Will the GP's fit on the schumacher chassis without modifying the chassis or posts?

Proud, gp3300 are a great cell to use. I have loved mine. They are what the hobby needed, a cheaper cell with more run time and good punch. Nice not to have to pay over $60 for great cells!

Was nice meeting you in Tulsa...hope you guys had a great time.

Jeff

Hey guys, if you have the car prior to the Mission (SST 2000?), then I think I have a few parts for you:

U1884R- lower wishbones SST 2000 (front)
U18883P- rear upper wishbones SST2000
U2149B- hub carrier pin axle- SST

I'll swap this stuff for some Mission arms or parts or white Yokomo or Schumacher rev-lite dish wheels or just about anything you want to give me that I can use...

Just let me know of you need them.
