...don't forget, the Cop does a lot of the 'quality control' and 'strength' testing for Schumacher. If something is going to break, he'll break it first!

Default carpet deck?

Have seen mention of a carpet deck in a few places here and am wondering what it does.

Also is there a way to search within this post? The only search I've been able to do doesn't drill down far enough, and this thread is HUGE

Thanks!

Ok, tell me what advantage the alloy pulleys offer, as whether the "RW" pulleys are the same thing, and if so, are they better quality than the shuy parts.

Alloy pulleys are for the layshaft, RW's are for diffs.
I use an alloy pulley because of durability. Plastic pulleys wear faster, worn pulley can cause belt skipping. There was also an issue with the early plastic pulleys breaking around the holding pin, making your car a no-wheel-drive one, but this has apparently been fixed by redesigning the pulley.
RW pulleys are nice, they are very durable and a bit smaller than the originals, making belts run more freely. The standard pulleys (both diff & layshaft) are OK though, I know guys who use standard items and are faster than me (which is not too hard to do)

Thanks,

I'm definitely at the point where my driving is what's in need of the most improvement. (Have only raced once.) But its good to know what the option/hop-up parts do.

Thanks again.

Alot of the schumacher guys that drive near me use HPI or Timiya shocks. Apparently the schumacher shocks aren't know to be all that great. I use the schumacher and like them just fine.
