There was a part number for the new Teemu 2.5mm fixed battery position chassis in the June UK news letter. They are on order but have not been produced yet. Keep in mind that the Teemu chassis puts the cells all the way back and 2mm futher in than is possible on the stock chassis. Also none of the top US driver run thier batteries in that position. Most run middle/middle or 1 step forward/middle.

I may give them back to the person that gave them to me since I don't think that I will ever run them. Do you have them on your car?
No, not running them for that reason.Pain to get them to be true.I have had good luck running 1.5 degrees in stock and 3* in 19turn and mod. Have you heard of anyone getting the aluminuim rear 2 degree uprights yet?

As far as gas goes,I hear you.Nowhere to race your car up north.Rccar is the only place close that has alot of competitive gas sedan racers with everone switching over to 8th scale for the nats.Hobbytown in newark is moving in a couple months.The new location will have a new surface laid down and will be at least 150 by 90 feet which will be better suited for Gas sedan racing.We'll see.

Hey Hebiki,

We will be racing the rest of the season in newark at the HT store there.In November is when we will be switching over to the new location.It will be about 5 minutes away at the most.A hop skip and a jump from newark.You should bring your stuff with you.We race on the 2nd and 4th saturdays.Plenty of competition if you race Stock and 19turn.2-3 heats of each class not to mention the huge sportsman class we have running.See you soon hopefully.

standard length is equal to 2 schumacher ball cups end to end..

alternatively most team guys are running theirs at around 41mm, and using the middle ackerman position.

I cut my center track rod ball grippas down to the molded circle on the bottom and run a 24mm turnbuckle. Then I adjusted it until the bell cranks were parallel. This allows a 2nd Ackerman adjustment in addition to the. That said...I haven't touched it since i built it.

Do you mean the MI2 or the original mission?

The MI2 is really efficient and has tons of steering even with a spool.The car is capable of winning on any level of racing and is highly tunable. May I add that the car is very durable too.

Mi2 is the finest kit Schumacher has produced to date. It is fast out of the box, very adjustable and tough as nails. IMHO it is only a matter of time before it wins a big race.

What is the effect of running a longer or shorter centre track rod than standard kit length.

Cheers

Generally longer link will make the steering a little "duller" around the centre point. I think i am running about 42mm from memory with the track rods in the mid position.
