PW,

Glad to hear McMoney is still there...... Good luck to you guys at the Nats.... Get those cars dialed and keep those shaft cars out of the mix

Take care!

hey all, p.w i was just wondering how you set your spool, im doing mine right now. Ive been told to take all the balls out and replace the hrust balls with another spacer the same size, is it supposed to have NO slip whatso ever?
thanks for your help.

PW,

What does spacing the bulkheads up 1 mm do to the handling of the car? Thanks.

Adrian...We are doing it a little differently now. All we do is superglue the std diff rings to a schumacher header card, then trim the excess away and remove the "diff" balls and reassemble with the header card facing the diff gear. Tighten the diff screw snug and the tighten the set screw stop very tight.

Tony...Spacing the bulkheads up will free up the car slightly in the corners. Please remember to adjust your shocks accordingly i.e. 1mm higher/shocks 1mm longer.....This adjustment is done when the car seems to have to much side-bite.

Thanks Rob!!!

hey guys....this may or may not apply but....

I was wondering what is the measurement of the shocks on a mission??I just got rid of my axis2 and I know that when i set the measurment right it made a world of difference....I am looking at using the most recent setup that has been posted as my track gets quite warm...so i just want to make sure the shocks are the right size as well

The most important thing is that they all be set the same. Currently, I believe that I'm running 56mm top to bottom. Most people run anywhere between 54-57mms. Hope that helps...

Racer X - where is that measured from? I measure mine fully extended and usually get them to 65-66mm.

I measure my shocks at about 66mm (with calipers, get them all EXACT)
Hey racer B, all of your tires are great, run 22`s in teh cooler weather, 27`s in mid weather... (25 deg c) and your 32`s in hoter weather, i feel that the best thing you can do for your tires is put wd40 or Rp7 ( i think rp7 is better) on them, and wipe it off VERY well with a rag. Pop tire warmers on 5 min before you go out to have your run, this gets them nice and sticky, and not to hot. I wouldnt do this for take off 22`s unless its crazy cold! there great as they are. hope this helps

yeah i think yours are a bit... try 65-66mm, thats what they use in the manual and all the team shumacher drivers do here.
Just make sure there even or your car will tweak
