Any idea when Schumacher will be bringing out their "new" design shocks?

I've been unimpressed with the current shocks for the last 15 years... so I'm not keen on dropping the cash on a car that I'll have to replace the shocks on...

Glad they've gone the C-hub route with the suspension though.

How's the quality of the mouldings and chassis parts compared to Yokomo or X-Ray? I always felt Schumacher were a little behind on that...

Ta.

....mo that was actually the "chant" I was doing ...I've been running the Losi since the 2001 Nats @ SWR, nothing wrong with the car, just ready for a change and I had a good experience with the Axis before I went to the Losi, so seemed like a "natural" for me.
I'll find out what you need to do to get that chassis taken care of.

I can't wait until tomorrow. What time are you coming out?

the cop has a dialed set up going. It works in 19 and with a nice mod.

today was a practice only day as the track conditions and computer problems were too much to run the races. That makes it two weeks that I didn't really get to test what I wanted to but oh well. Mo and I talked about what we are going to do the next time out so next weekend will be better if the weather and computer is good.

AHHHH YA, my car is freakin dialed...I am lovin' it. I really got this car working. I ran a 14.7 lap time, and although that means nothing to you all, the best I could get out of my TC3 was a 15.0 , my set-up is attached to take a look and compare, and fixed the binding in the rear arms, and added some droop to the rear, and basically left the front of the car alone.
in the main, the track got so warm I had to use 36Rs and I took the sway bars off. It was really easy to drive, and neither I nor Paul P. could get the car to spin out, lol.

as far as i know you can't save pdf files with acrobat reader. you can try to do a screen capture or print it though.
