Rob does some really nice work on his chassis prep. I saw his chassis sitting on the Schumacher table... Yeah the guys did not have the car long enough to really get a good feeling for it. Carpet Nats should be different !

PW is racing the R12 at the Nitro Winterchamps in Ft. Myers right now. Racing 2 weeks back to back!

I'm sure he will give you guys a full debreifing when he gets back!

There was a heck of a lot of racing last week. I witnessed new carpet get laid down and worn out in 6 days! I'm talking holes worn through the carpet to the wood in places!

Wow. What a week! Felt like a month

First off I would like to Thank PW and Adrian for all of their support. They made my week go very smooth..

As for the car. I struggled the first two days of practice. I had only ran the car for a couple of battery packs before this race. It was more than the car. Running in the opposite direction really had "ME" screwed up. By Wednesday's club race I was dialed in finishing third over all. I made MANY changes to the car throughout the week and every change made the car better and was a noticeable change.

I qualified 5th and choked in the main. I had the start of a life time. Was running in second by the end of the sweeper. The car was awesome and super fast, fastest it had been all week. I ran in second behind Ray Darroch for a few laps and stuffed it and watched the entire field go by SUCKED. My car was good and I think Ray and I would have had a great race for the win.

All in all it was a great week. The car is just flat dialed. I am very impressed with this latest Schuie release. The car is more than capable of winning. Anyone thinking about trying one should give it a chance. I will get my complete set up posted here soon.

Thanks bud. I will give you a call later in the week.

EA,

Nice to meet you too. I really appreciate you and Todd helping me out. Definitely made a difference.

Ray,

The new car is great. I am nothing but impressed with it. It's nice to make changes and have them actually work The Nats should be interesting.

Toe is set with the inner hinge pins in the rear (1.5 or 3deg settings) but there will be an optional alloy rear hub soon that will have +/- .5 deg settings with an insert.
