Let me now.
Here you go Fastfred.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm tired of blowing out the threads on the upper arm.

Fast Fred - Cut your droop in half and see if it helps. Also the more you run Pits/Sorex the stickier thay get. First run is great, 2nd run is good, 3rd run you start to traction roll.

Not to sound like a sales guy...but...try CS27GL's. They seem to stay consistant for weeks of racing. At least that what the guys at S&N in Wisconsin say. They have the same carpet Scott uses and that also run TQ tire traction. You can go just as fast as Pit/Sorex with a softer setup.

Try this setup:

One way or spool never use a diff for rubber on carpet
Standard swaybars front and rear.
Front Toe-In = .5 out
Rear Toe-In = 2.0 in
Droop: Front 1, Rear 2
Camber: Front 1, Rear 1
Upper arm - upper hole on bulkhead.
Springs: Front Blue, Rear Blue
45 wt silicon all around
Inside Hole on arms, #3 for the top shock mounts.
Outside ball carriers on the hubs
CS27GL's striaght out of the bag
TQ purple on the inside 3/4 front, full rear (leat it soak for 10 min before run than wipe off hard with a clean dry rag until as clean as possible).

At the 2001 Nats (CS27GL spec) at your track the fastest Schuie was Andrew Cartwright. He ran gray springs front at rear! The CS27's like soft setups.

Fastfred- The trick to keep the threads from blowing out is to thread the tie rod all the way in on the arm side of the upper arm, then back it out a turn or two ( this will allow some room for camber adjustment). Then unscrew the ball cup as far as neccessary to re-align the camber. Your camder rod will now be off center twards the middle of the car. this allows more rod to reside in the plastic, and will no longer crack or pull out of the plastic arm. Once I started doing this, I've never blown out an upper arm.-Jeff

Can any of you Mission drivers provide me with a screw count? Need size and how many of each.

Thank you!

Yea the 3rd leg of the USTC is the weekend after the Novak race Paul. I will be in attendance there, hopefully with my new MI2. That way McMahon and I will have someone to bounce ideas off of. I had planned on going to the Novak race as I told you awhile back. But since things here with college are going rather slow, I cant leave. lol.....

RB: Schumacher offers a screw set for the Mission in both Ti and stainless. Other than that, I'll see what I can do but I'm sure most of my screws are whatever fit at the time...

Why is Teemu running Tamiya shocks on his Schumacher? That don't seem to look good if a team guy don't run the shocks that come witht he car, maybe I'm missing something but they don't seem to look like any of the Schumacher shocks I have had on my Schuie touring cars.

WYD- I believe that Schumacher might be currently working on a new shock... in the interim they are using the Tamiya ones. I imagine that Paul or Adrian can shed some light on that...

Sup P-Dub? Sup Adrian? or should I say....Blue Fox and Red Squirrel? LOL!!

Unfortunately,Schumacher will be very hard pressed to build a better shock then tamiya flourine coated shocks.Best shocks out there period.Smooooooth.But hey I am sure they will figure it out soon enough.

Yes-plain and simple the smoothest production shock made for RC is the Tamiya evoIII shocks. I'd run them too if I had the spare bucks to buy a set.

I know this might be a little off topic but I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about the Schumacher BIG 6 cars and could answer some questions for me before I commit to a purchase.


Thanks....

PS: I tried to email Schumacher in Florida but the emails keep getting sent back as undeliverable
