Default Mi2

The only complaint I have ever had with Schumacher cars is the fact the the screw heads are never flush with the bottom of the chassis. Seems like the chassis needs to be better countersunk.
I had the same problem with my Mi2. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
I have decided to not run the Mi2 until the spur gear adapter and P-Bud chassis are available. I hope I do not have the same problem with the P-Dub chassis.
Otherwise it looks like a great car and I cannot wait to run it.

i also had this problem whith flush screw heads on the chassis but it is easy to deepen them with a countersink bit ! I will also try a softer setting and see how that goes.

I only had one screw that had a problem, it did not stick out very much. I went and changed all of the screws to titanium anyways...

I have the same problem but only with the 10mm long M3 screws.

I think the heads on the 10mm long M3 screws are not as shallow as the rest of the screws which causes them to not sit flush with the lower chassis.

Try different sizes if possible such as 8mm and they might be more flush with the chassis.

Sorry Troy! Thats great .All is so so here .The car was funny last outting,be it radio adjustments, driver,new set up (from Paul) or new track lay out. All this made for very intresting driving.Qualified 2 and then riped the right front off ,ran the Mission last week to make points finished 3rd with rear right drive shaft missing! Race director made a last minute desission to run 12 cars in the main and did not give ample time for us to review the mains posted(we are now turn marshaling the heat BEFORE the one we are in!!!!!!)so we had to be on track when it was posted. When everyone turned on their cars we had problems . I turned to look over the sheet and when i turned back my car was on the other side of the track hitting pipes!!!!! Ran it any ways to a 3rd place finish in the worst run race i have ever been in.thanks again!
