3 diff balls.......wow thats a first. I think there is other ways to save weight in the drive train, but if it works for you run it. Im running Plaid fronts and Purple rears. Are you runing 64 pitch on you car??? If so you might want to run the Stock spur that would probably save you as much weight as you taking the diff balls out. I have noticed that the diffs on foam tires are very critical and you would want them to perfom to the best of their ability.

I've heard of the three diff ball thing. I just think the diff is too rough with only three balls. Granted, the diff balls are huge, but there has to be a better way to lighten the drive train other than messing with Schumachers smooth diffs.

Dragonxmx: since people were supposed to be getting them in early Nov., I would hope that it had already been packed up for shipping to you.

Has ANYBODY got theirs yet?

I haven't gotten a "MISSION" yet but I will be on a mission tomorrow to beat the soon to be Mission owners.... RacerX was at the first carpet race on Wednesday but like everyone knows the mission isn't out yet. I think that he was running 12th scale though. He has another killer article to write on the corally.

Good luck to you guys at the Clevland race.

Last I heard some of the kits might be in next week here in the US. So all you guys who cant control the drooling get out the bibs..... I know that they are trying to get the guys cars that are going to Cleveland, so I will get mine wednesday of next week. I will see Paul Wynn and Mike McMahon(sp) test/drive their missions this weekend. I will try to keep you guys upto date on whats going on over the next two weekends.

It's an indoor cork floor. Sort of like a running track.

Just got back from running the car. Very nice to drive. The transmission is very free running, so it's quick in a straight line!

There were 5 of us in the A and the winning car was a mission.

I basically lost 2 rounds of qualifing due to interfearence. I can only assume that there is some kind of issue with where i had put my electrics. I got round the problem by moving everything so that it was in the same places as Marcus Lubke ran his (pics on Orion's site) It seemed that my CS speedo didn't like being right next to the motor.

PW got his Mission last Wednesday. He has been practicing for Cleveland in Grand Rapids since the following Thursday. I talked to him today and he said his car was dialed and he was turning laps as fast as anyone else at the track (Andrew Grey/Losi, Dave Vera/Yok, and a few AE Factory drivers). He just needs more wheel time as this is the 2nd time ever he has run foam tires on his sedan.

Mike McMahon's Mission came in with Pauls and we shipped it to him. He got it on Friday. He will be joining Paul on Monday.

There is a shipment of early production Missions for the Schumacher drivers racing at Cleveland. They SHOULD get here Tuesday and get to Cleveland Wednesday.
