pw whats up! You too adrian., and the scumacher crew.

Hey paul i ran the car set up to the assembly instructions and didnt like it.
2 laps all it took. I went ahead and tried pw settings with the schuey shocks 3 holes and 45wt oil. I also ran it with the stock blue springs. car felt like it had a little too much roll I think the associated springs will be the the ticket. the big thing I'll diffenatly need to do is the spool.
car needs it. ( when are you guys comming out with one)

PW also main question I have . Is the car supposed to make wierd noise under accelleration while turning in sweeper
seems like a squeeking /clicking noise i dont know if its the plastic axles. also I did glue a shim on the steering as i did on my demon it seemed to quite it down.

By the way the car is a blast with a 10t single

ran it on the lay out from the state race the car was very planted.

Hey Hector....Welcome to Schumacher Corner!!!

Yes, the spool makes a big difference Unfortantely Schumacher doesn't make a purpose built spool. We are running the front diff minus the diff balls with header card glued to the rings. Look in the manual for spool assembly, but just add the header card to the rings and face them toward the pulley.

I must admit that the stock driveshafts wont cut it with a spool and recommend Schumacher MIP or Ti-Racing CVDs.

Welcome to MOD racing

rcshark....They will fit, but you will have to keep an eye on the universal hitting the inside of the steering block.

I got myself a Mi2 yesterday, have been running X Rays for the past 2 years.. the car looks really good, but i have some questions: the 2 pulleys that comes with the kit, 17 and 20, most people seems to run the 20t pulley, i`m going to run stock, on carpet (rubber tires) wouldnt the 17t pulley be the best thing? (more acceleration etc)
cant wait to try this baby on the track!

Stay with the 20 unless the track is VERY tight.

Hatebreed....We have found that the 20pulley works best for most tracks, but if you only race one track all the time then you should try both and decide with is better for you and the track you race on.

rcdougie....Hector won the Mi2 in the Florida State Series raffel. Look out series racers

Hector....Not sure about that noise, my car doesn't do it

Well it's time for the Reedy Race!!!! I will be flying out tomorrow afternoon to meet up with the rest of the team. If I have access to a PC (hint to Schumacher...LOL) I will try and give updates, but if not I'm sure Adrian will keep things rolling here
