It looks like the team PRP plates raise everything, including the servo saver, so you have to file off the top of the servo saver to mount the top plate. With the Team PRP you dont have to cut off the fronts of the steering mounts, where the rear lower hinge pins insert. In other words it should work with all of the existing parts...

FYI...Schumacher is going to release a kit for performing this mod pretty soon. You might want to check with them. I think there's will have the aluminum lower hing pin mounts front and rear.

Schumacher are releasing a roll center mod, pt no U2575H. Not sure about availability, i have ordered one but it hasnn't come yet. It is shown on the December Newsletter that can be found on Schumacher's web site in the On-line catalogue section.

It uses the std front brace and has a carbon plate to raise it. Then there is a new pin block and modified steering mounting block. You also get some plates to put under the rear plocks to raise the rear as well.

Thanks for the set-up sheets PW, the Mcmahon sheet says he modified the plastic rear hubs to "simulate" the lowball position on the aluminum pieces, but makes no mention of teh same being done to the front. I a running the Al hubs front and rear, does this mean I should run the high ball position on the front with lowball on the rear??

Thanks agian!!

Impact...Yes. that is how he was running his car (cut rear & std front). The cut hub seems to lock in the rear of the car.

Hey Paul, you'll be at the US TC Champs in Milwaukee next week right? Do you know if you'll have any of the roll mod parts with you then? Would be nice to have for the Nats in March.

schuieracer....Yes, I will be there next week along with the rest of the team from FL. We don't yet have the roll-center kit, but we do have the alloy blocks that the team guys are currently using....They should be in stock within a week or two.

Ok thanks Paul. Are you going to be doing any racing there? Traction is up already, they aren't changing the layout that's been down for 2 race days already, and it will be used for the race as well. So don't expect a green track when you get there, it'll have pleny groove. FYI schumacher guys. Wanna win for the 4th year in a row?

Where can I get the carpet upper deck. I've looked all over and nobody seems to have it.

As far as I can see on the exploded Mision diagram, then the use of the gear adapter (U2252) will add extra weight to the transmission, compared to use of Schumacher spurs. Correct?

Thanks.

Yes if you weigh it out, it will be heavier, but the advantages of using aftermarket gears like Kimbrough and RW in 64 pitch outweighs that.

Default EVO and EVO2?

Hi all... this might be a bit off the current topic, but here goes.

I used to race about 12 years ago (2wd-offroad). I mainly raced AE RC10's. About the time I got out, Losi was comming around. I am now trying to get back into it and am wondering what you all can tell me about the Fireblade EVO and EVO2. I have heard both names mentioned, but have only seen the EVO on the Schuie web site. Can someone give me some info on this car? I am really trying to avoid contributing to the AE and Losi domination that is going on right now (At least from what I have seen).

Any info would be great!

Thanx!

I can only imagine they are also great cars, but most people in the states prefer the old guard (Losi,Associated) so they are very overlooked. I could only imaggine them to be fast in the right hands with enough patience and set-up time....

Thanks. The reason for I might use the adapter, are to re-use my collection of 48 pitch spurs and pinons.

I put the RW's in my car, man what a difference. The car is so much smoother. It takes off faster and is not as noisy.
