If you are using the carpet/lower towers front & rear, then you will remove that amount front and rear.

Yes, longer screws with locknuts.

With the stock chassis we are running no front riser plate. We use 1mm or 1.5mm spacers from TakeOff. The lower you go the more steering you get.

In the rear we are using 1.5mm to 2mm spacers on top of the riser plate. The higher you go the more free your rear will be. You may also mix up the spacers to get .5mm of anti-squat. This helps the rear rotate off power entering corners and really helps the car square up and exit the corner.

If you run the Teemu Chassis subtract .5mm from all the above spacers as that chassis is 2.5mm thick.
Dont suppose you know where i could get some from in the UK ? CML dont seem to have them listed ....

Neveo, I'm not sure how much of the take off hardware that CML have. Must admit i haven't ever seen the spacers either, which is a shame as i wanted some. I believe a lot of the anodised small bits that are labelled as "Fastrax" are probably the same as the Take off bits.

That said, i have got some labelled up as "Powers/Pentagon". I think these also come from CML, and came in a pack with 4 each of 1,1.5,2,2.5.

Default Riser plates ?

Are the riser plates the carbon plate that the control arms sit on?Does any one have a pic of when they have been made into straps for support?

Thanks
Mick

Default Front Support Brace

ratter:

Yes, the riser is the U-Shaped thin piece under the front arms.

Here is a picture of my brace. I used a piece of carbon fiber from an old shock tower I found in the "old parts bin" at the local hobby shop. The piece cost me only $1. I wanted to keep the riser plate as is in the kit.

However, I used the riser as a template.

Here is the picture of the brace before I installed it on the car.

Forget about the Fusion bulkhead on the Mission 1...LOL Never worked very good!

The roll-center mod was using the alloy suspension mounts on the front so you could run the stock or raised hinge-pin. Go to www.schumacherusa.net and the part #U2575 Roll Centre Mod Kit - Mission
