Shoe - The company that made our thrust bearings for the first gen Mission diffs went out of business in late 2002. We redesignd the diffs to use our previous thrust bearing (U730 Steel or U1954 Tungsten). U2458 are long gone. You will need to get new diff halves (the new ones are diffrent) and new thrust bearings for them. Call us and we will set you up.

Question on the MI2:

There is a current bug in the design of the mission, where if you want to use the outer holes on the hubcarriers, you have to file off the inner hole. If you don't, the camber link will make contact with the carrier mid way through the suspension travel. Is this fixed on the new car?

Holycow - C Hub is the suspension design used by most other manufacturers. We decided not to re invent the wheel and do our take on a conventional suspension system.

When are you guys going to come out and get some practice for the birds? I was going to go but I don't care too much for foams.

Default Carpet Setup

Fairly new here, and just ran my first race this wednesday. Had a blast.

I'm looking for some carpet setups that i can browse through and see what folks are doing.

I've already made a number of changes during my practice runs, but anything more I can learn is all good.

The track is Stockton RC Raceway. Not having seen any other indoor courses I don't know if this one is a 'tight' track or not.

Thanks,

Matt

Try emailing Paul at Schumacher for a base setup or look on their website at racing-cars.com. When I ran my mission last season, I started with Ron Atomic's Snowbird's setup. Worked pretty good, just had to make a few changes.
