Default SCHUMACHER TEAM EDITION

I was looking at a rc car magazine web site and found, an article about a Schumacher Team Edition. I couldnt get any info on the Team Editon car becuase you have to subscribe and then download the magazine article.

Mr PW is this true?
Will this ever come to be ?

HELP... please help a rubber guy running at a foam race. I am at the NORRCA Nationals carpet race in Milwaukee. Both my mod and stock car are working very well in practice today but I am afraid as more cars run the traction will go way up and I never ran foams on a high bite track. What can I expect the car to do as traction comes up (get loose or push or ?) and what changes seem to work the best on a Mission? So far I am the only Schumacher guy here but I hope that changes later.
Thanks Guys

Ottoman, sorry I couldn't make it- I tried!!!

If the traction goes up your car should start pushing. That's usally the case at any track. If or when it happens start going up in spring rate. You may end up with the same spring f/r. You can raise the roll center in the rear to loosen it up. I would say your first move should be to put the front shocks in the #2 (second from inside) hole and the rear in the #4 (next to outside). That will add some side bite to the front and take away some in the rear. If you are running a front swaybar you can go to the thinner one or take it loose on one side to get some more steering. Don't try to run too much droop either. The car will traction roll. About .5mm/1mm (fr/rr) of travel is all you want. If it still traction rolls take the tires down to 57.5mm and soften the edges when you true them. Remember to reset EVERYTHING when you cut the tires down smaller and recheck your math on the rollout (gear ratio). Reducing the rear toe will help the rear rotate some too, especially in stock. No need for rear toe in stock since forward traction isn't an issue. Just don't go below .5 degree per side.

Hope that helps some...
GOOD LUCK!!! And remember, you wasted your time and money if you didn't have fun!

Oh, if you need any help from a nice guy, find Dave Hill- he'll be running a Barracuda car and he has red hair. Skinny, too. Answers to the nickname "Jason's Pit Bitch" LMAO
Dave is a super guy and will help you with anything. The guy is smart and fast.

Ottman

you are not the only Mission there. TQ in stock rubber is a mission (mine). Now that Timmy Heiser is no longer running a mission us Shumacher guys got to stick together. I'm pitted at right next to "Snackside" in the corner.

Yea Adrian, mine bend at the top of the threads usually.

Ti Racing makes titanium shafts and PW says they are the hot ticket, but I don't know because I haven't had the funds to buy the high-dollar parts...

nyone having trouble using the titanium upper front arm tie rods in conjunction with using the outter hole on the front steering block. I have pulled out both of mine so far. I think the stock upper arm rods might be longer and I wouldn't have this problem. I bought the car new from a fellow racer with a ton of hopup so I can't remember from the former cars if the titanium ones are shorter or not.

I will be buying a few pairs uf upper arm mounts incase it happens again. So far that is my only problem with the Mission so far. Maybe you guys are running longer tie rods on the upper arms than me.

Thanks
Brian.

Brian if you read back through this thread you will see plenty of commentson the RW pulleys. You will also find everything you need to know about the tie rods. There are longer ones for running the ball in the outer or "inline" hole.

When you run the outside hole you need to thread the tie-rod out of the ballcup and farther into the inner arm.

The RW pulleys make the car smoother and more efficient......

IMPACTPLAYR are you going to race at Laurel at all. I'm pretty sure I will make opening day. I think it is April 27th or the last Sunday in April whatever date that is.

Does the Nitro Fusion alum.upper suspension mount fit on the Mission and still give the same overall geometry. My front bulkhead has a fair amount of slop in just 2 weeks of racing. Would like to eliminate some of it.
