I have a couple of 300m's and they work great. Plus its something different the same old "stratus soup." The body im hoping someone will make would be Mazda 6. I think that car has a really good shape for racing and looks great!

Racerb- The stratus 2.0 is a good starting point for our cars. It is relatively neutral handling and smooth. The new losi Lexus is also a good body, you can expect to get more steering @ low speed, and it feels more agile ( I think because it is shorter and about half an oz. lighter). The Losi alfa is also ok, but you can expect less rear grip than the Stratus or Lexus. Something I really Liked @ the Reedy Race was the 2.0 with the old stratus wing. It felt more planted yet still had good steering @ high speeds.-Jeff.

Well guys. After running the mission for about a year you guys are loosing another driver

I will still continue to run the mission in certain races but for now im switching to Team Associated. The mission overall was a very fast car and easy to drive. In conclusion, I just wanted to try something new and switch to shaft drive. Keep up the good work and good luck!

Touringcardude: I am pretty sure the internal ratio of the axis is 1.8, the final drive ratio will be dependant on your spur/pinion gear combination.

to work out the final drive ratio, take the spur gear teeth and divide it by the pinion gear teeth then multiply that answer buy the internal ratio(1.8)

hope that helps you!

Default rw pulley

Racerb,
that is just the pulley itself, it does not include the flange or the outdrives. I use all the RW pullies, and 64p spurs for my mission. Call Paul @ Schumacher they have it all.

Default Pricing.

Racerb,
First if you pay 2 cents more for parts, so what, you get what you need when you want it. And Schumacher's customer service is possibly the best in the industry, even for the little people. It is almost as if you are speaking to a relative, instead of a sales person. I have become friends with the staff, met them in both major events and at their office in Fl. They can answer any tech question you may have from any one of their products to the "T"... Now, I am not knocking the other parts suppliers, but why go elsewere when you have everything you need right there.
Give the a shout, and I promise you will not be disappointed.

RacerB: Replacement and hop up parts are almost never discounted at any shop, so Schuies prices are just as good as anywhere else. The kit prices are usually close to the same, too. Of course, you should support any local hobby shop that carries the product first. Add to that the expertise that they gladly hand out, and it's a really great deal.
