You can buy directly from Schumacher USA. Go to www.racing-cars.com and click on the link to go to the usa site.

The p-dub bumpers is one of the best things I have on my car, the only thing I've broken since I put mine on is a couple rear hubs (which doesn't really count because the front bumper doesn't protect that).

PW - How does the associated hub change the handling of the car? I've been happy for the most part with the stock one, but the car can always be improved. Do you think the alloy rear hubs would be good for foam mod because you said they can help free up the car? Thanks.

PW -- where do you purchase the P-Dub Racing bumper?

BigDog -- Do you need to modifications to mount the BRP TC3 WIDE Front Bumper? Would the BRP XXXS WIDE Front Bumper also work?

it may work but you get more material to work with using the TC3 one.

tuil21...Yes, I work for Schumacher USA in technical sales and as team manager Here are some of our great online supporters:

www.speedtechrc.com and www.kthobbies.com

You should also talk to your local hobbyshop as they may be able to hook you up with everything you need in one shot.

Leadfoot....P-Dub bumpers can be found here www.pdubracing.com

Sup mini-dub...The rear hubs free the rear of the car up, which would be great for foam racing. Latif (team driver) says that his car was AWESOME on foams last week and we are just waiting for his setup He said the alloy hubs greatly increased cornerspeed with foams on carpet.

TUIL21, I ran a Novak Brushless in mine and it worked great. As of late I have been running the KO VFS speedo with regular motors and the car has been awesome. Next weekend I am actually heading up to a 2.4 hour enduro with my Mi2, and I plan on running the Brushless in it again (Mostly for run time reasons). The reason I am running the Mi2 is that so far it's worked awesome on asphalt and it's been pretty durible. The only part that I've broken someone else actually broke. I loaned the car out for someone to run and he busted the left front C-carrier. Other than that the car has been flawless.

My last 2 cars went together way smoother.. When you dont see that well(up close)putting the shocks together will piss you off.. I will see this weekend..

you'll be fine on the track with either the spool set up or the oneway set up. I went back to the oneway this past weekend and I don't plan on taking it out for a while. The car was by far one of the best cars at this weekend's race. We'll see how it goes at Speedworld this coming weekend.

XXXkat,
excluding your shocks, what was a problem? I havent heard of anyone comlaining about the build of the car, only complimenting it. Can we help? The only part I still sturggle with when rebuilding my car are the castor block, they dont indicate L or R, and you have a 50/50 shot of installing the correct ones.
I dont know what all the grief is about with the kit shocks. I build my shocks every time air FREE, but I have also been using these shocks since the conception way back when..... Where do you think LOSI got there shock design from????? It cant be all that bad.
I f you need help in anyway, I, we, us, and Schumacher can help. Just ask..

The C hubs were not smooth(steering side to side)The A arms had to be sanded to get the hubs to fit,..C clips would not go on the arms(had to sand a bit their also)My idea of a smooth build is an Xray or an HPI,Even the Losi's went together better.I have it all put together but I feel it was not an easy kit to build.

We are the opposite. The softer we have gone the better....we run on rubber tire's though. I would think that foams outside we be cool if the track was well sprayed. We have settled on 40 wt oil for now but 30 wt is nice when the bite is low.
