Hi guys,

Im new to this site and reading through it all you talk about some great stuff to know about the Mission.

As your on the subject of ball cups, I have heard that some people cut these down by 2mm or so to get a lower ride height. This is my case i run the roll center mod with Fusion bulkheads and the alloy hub carriers with low pin at front and high pin on rear. but I can not get the ride height less than 8mm front and 8.5mm rear.
Is cutting the ball cups down the right way about this or am I doing something wrong, Im also running a shock length of 65mm?

Thanks

Obviously you don't share my point of view. I've never had a problem with the cups popping off, but my point was about hte slack. The actual cup is way too big for the ball. When using the Schuie cups, there is just so much play in every corner of the car, even when new! When they used to be black in color they were a better fit. The best Schuie cup up to date have been the old "rose-joints". No need to argue me on this one, I respect your opinions. This is just mine, and I was surprised that you think differently.

Jesse, I can see where you are coming from actually. If you want no play at all then you want the TiR ball studs as they are a little bigger.

Sure you can, it says it right under my name there on the left.


Bad joke. Anyhow, I recall you have mentioned this about the TIR studs earlier.

Does anyone know if the new car is a totally new design or if there will be a conversion kit available for the current Mission owners?

Cheers,
Yorkie

Default Schumacher

Schumacher prototype

We promised more infos of the new Schumacher prototype. So here we go:

Schumacher has changed the suspension geometry drastically. The prototype car has standard-type suspension arms with c-hubs in front. Another interesting feature is the sligthly changed transmission. The long belt which connects the front and rear differential has changed the position with the small belt so that it is near the spur gear. The great advantage of this belt setup is that you can put the battery more to the center of the chassis. Right now the team drivers have the possibility to change the position of the battery pack to test different weight distribution. The form of the main chassis plate is a little bit different as well.

The new car will be available in late Octobre/early November 2003!

Hey Yorkie....No conversion will be available, there are to many things that have changed from the Mission to the new car. There will be a few items that will carry over, but not enough to convert.

adyb....Not sure unless I duplicated your setup, but cutting the ball-cups 2mm should take care of the problem.

Hey Guys

I'm busting out onto the race scene after a long absence. Would anyone have a pavement setup for the mission that I could use for a starting point. I havent even ran this car yet.

Thank you in advance for any help.

PS the new car looks good, can't wait for more pics to see the suspension a little better.


Cheers

Paul
