congrats adrian. sounds like you'll have some more opportunities to get rid of the shakes if your outrunning the tc3's outta the sweepers.

i checked out some of the mains at the cleveland on sunday. not so good for the missions it appears. saw one or two in the pits, but not in the big mains. we'll get em next time.

good to see the new losi doing some damage among a field of ae's. tq and coast to coast win. strong show by spashett.

I got back late last night from the US Indoor Champs what a race. I got my Mission wednesday night and built it for the 3 practice rounds that we had on thursday. The first impression of the car is is wow thats a lot of steering and boy does it get from corner to corner quick. PW and Mike M. had their cars working well over the race weekend, PW set an early TQ with his first Qualifier. I never got to cach any of Alex Lopez's qualifers but I heard he was awsome on the infeild but lacked alittle on the straight, I dont know if this was true or not just what I was told. I did catch his main and he did have a really good car just had a rough start, well it was a very rough start but the car look just as fast as the leaders if not faster. I had a few radio problems like the crystal falling out 2 times, so i did not have as good of a race that I would have liked. The new car looks like its going to keep the winning ways of the SST cars alive.

Default One-Ways??

So, I guess with the new drive train the only one way option will be the front Diff??? Were the guys running them this last week running them full four wheel drive? With Adrians report of tons-o-steering and lots of corner speed, maybe the oneways arent necessary?

markg: I have never found it neccesary to run a one-way of any kind in any of my Schumachers. I mean I always end up dialing about half of the cars steering out with the dual rate because they always have so much!

At the track I was racing at the layout was very tight and one ways were not the way to go. The track was a hure carpet track (100x60) but it did not have any long straights. The cars running one ways were too inconsistant and hard to drive.

Tomorrow I will have my Mission (Carbon) Looking forward to it.

Here in the Netherlands we run on very big circuits. We are always looking for more steering (I'm always using oneways). So I'm glad to hear the Mission has more steering!!!

Later

Hey Steve, you car will come in the 2nd batch next week. We had to fill backorders going back to late September first.

Alex-you should be proud of your results. A lots of people have told me that you had the best handling car in the stock field and you drove the wheels off of it. I can't wait to see what you can do with it at the 1st State race at Minnreg!

Alex Im sorry that the Northern guys did not show you any respect but thats the way these guys race FOAM tires. On Foams the races are more dirty b/c every guy who own's a TC3 thinks hes the man on foam tires and they drive 3 feet past the corrner at full speed and its only a matter of time until they take you out. It sucks that this is the way FOAM tire races are raced but it is, of all the FOAM race that I have been to I have yet to see 1 race run cleanly. Also you have to realize that all these guys up here in the north and out east all they do is run foamies and i know with more time behind the car you and others whould have been right up there in the mains. Dont let this race bother you b/c when it comes time to race on rubber tires all the guys in the a main at Cleveland will be no where to be seen.

Default Mission @ Cleveland

Alex, Your car looked awesome in stock. Definitely was an A-Main car. Qualifying is tough when you get shuffled in the mix. I didn't get to see Kevin's, but I saw McMahon's to. His was dialed as well.

Hook me on a set up. My car is hitting the door step tomorrow. I run carpet with foams. Yep, one of those Northerners~
