If I run this enduro this weekend that I am planning on running, I will take some pics with my Novak Brushless in it. A brushed motor would not smoke a Brushless one. A brushless is faster than a stock motor, about the same, maybe a tick faster than 19T, but a Mod would be quicker

Just gear with a 3:1 final drive and you'll smoke the 4tec straight line. Fact is, none of us gear like this because on the track acceleration is more important than straightline speed. The novak brushless has a ton of torque rather than a ton of RPM's, so it's really made more for people that want the punch rather than outright top speed.

PW- I got my car last night. I've got a set of Tamiya shocks I'm going to put on it. What towers are you guys running with the Tamiya shocks and do you have to limit them at all?

Carpet towers, no limiters and using schumacher ball-cups (cut 2mm) on the shocks....Go to www.schumacherusa.net and down load my national's setup

(thanks Paul ) I'll be getting my new car probably on Wednesday and I'll be doing a lot of work with it and a lot of reading for a while on this car to get up to speed. I look forward to being able to help out anyone with any questions once I get to know the car well enough. Until then I'll be reading and learning as fast as I can. I'm really looking forward to running this car and representing Schumacher.
hey jkerr0043 welcome to the team!

Mo has the gas car on rails right now. We are going to Santa Cruz this weekend for some more gas practice for the Paris Race. The electric sedan is also dialed. Results will be posted after the race this weekend.

Adam - Are you using something other than Acrobat or Acrobat reader to open the file? We have had a few calls from guys that use Photoshop and Illustrator a lot and they use those to open PDF's. They often call us saying the sheets are blank. Try Acrobat or Reader and let me know if this helps.

Adrian--I have the latest full version of acrobat. Not just the reader. I use it quite a bit to make pdf. files.
