I ran my pre-production Mission today on carpet with Stock, 19T and Mods. Here are some observations:
I ran yellow springs all around with 80wt/2holes inner hole on lower a arm, shocks leaned all the way down, upper hole on upper a-arm mount, |In line hubs, front and rear diffs, 1deg camber all around, 10 deg caster, 0 front toe, 2 deg rear toe, Pit 24R's front and rear with Echo Red inserts.
Here are some observations:
1. Ton-O-Steering. It feels like my RC12L3. Harder front tires will reduce this but I love cars that have tons of steering.
2. Lots of Cornerspeed. If I set up the corners right the car would whip right around.
3. Very strong acceleration out of corners. It was very nice to pull away from some of the more dangerous people I was practicing with today.
4. While I was running I overheard some one say "Hey is that Joe Freitas?" (Fastest Stock onroad driver in the State) the Reply was, "nope, thats Adrian" Followed by, "Wow".
The Mission seems like a very good car. But don't take my word for it...some of you will find out for yourselves next week!
