King G hit it. There will be solid top decks offered for more stiffness, but the car is pretty d@mn stiff the way it sits. We race carpet with foams and have no problems with it. Give it a chance and you will be impressed......

Just got home from running the Mi2 for the first time. Only got to run 4 practice packs through the car but it was very good by qualifying. Ended up 3rd or 4th about 5 seconds off of Fernando. Car was easy to drive, carried very good corner speed and has great acceleration. Very easy to work on too!!

Bad news is I didnt get to run the main because I pulled the screw through the front of the chassis in the 4th qual Will have to figure out how to stop that (besides hitting the wall) for next time.

Good job Schumacher on the car.

Honestly if you don't break the regular plastic hubs they really aren't worth it. The plastic ones are more adjustable (the hub's height and ball stud location) and they are lighter (less unsprung weight). On the R12 gas sedan I think it's worth it though.

NOTE TO ALL Mi2 FOAM TIRE CARPET RACERS!!!!

The Mi2 is better on foams with the suspension riser plates removed. However, when you remove these the chassis is weakend and a hit to the front can break your chassis or pull a screw through. If you run foam and remove your riser plates take the front one and cut it down so it acts as a strap and mount it on top of your forward front hinge pin mounts. If you do this you will not break the chasiss or pull screws through.

If you run rubber just run the car stock with the risers and your all good.

Finished building my Mi2 last night...it was the easiest Schumacher I have ever assembled. The suspension arms are perfect and needed no reaming or shimming work at all. The rear hubs were just slightly tight, but that was it. The car went together in no time. The only points I can make are that with the rear diff, it goes left diff cover, spacer, front drive belt, spacer rear drive belt, right diff cover (but that is not hard to figure out). I also widened the battery slots so that 3300s would drop in easier (but it's not really needed, just a personal preference). I really like the bigger droop screws, and, of course, all the factory purplonium. Hands down, the nicest car Schumacher (and possibly any manufacturer) has ever put out! Only problem is that it's raining and I can't go and run it (yet). I'm headed back to the garage to see if I can find some rain tires...

Sounds great Jeff!

One thing I don't recommend is opening up the battery slots in the battery tray. You will only need to file the slots if you run extra shrink on your cells. Schumacher made the slots over sized to allow the 3300 cells to sit flush with the chassis. If you file the slots your cells will drag....RB cough cough....LOL

What the heck are you doing on the message boards Andrew?? Your suppose to be working on setups for all of us racers that don't have a track to race on 24hrs a day....Give me a call tomorrow because we have to get flights for the carpet nats!!!!

...as a matter of fact, I do run shrink wrap on my cells.

Ended up raining most of the day (not hard, but too hard to run the car). Bet tomorrow the sun is out and its beautiful while I'm at work
