I can confirm what Adrian is saying.

I asked Korgae about running the old plaid & purple combo when the bite comes up. He said that yes the dbl pink stuff is softer, but the way the tire is constructed, it gives you more forward bite but less side bite so it is ideal to use in high bite conditions. Unfortunately i have 3 sets of the old stuff left to run.

I don't quite understand your question.... the rear links adj the rear tire camber... either the top of the tire leans in or leans out, while the rear toe is how much the front of the rear tires points in toward the chassis

You're talking about 2 different adjustments. Toe talks about having the FRONT of the tire angles inward towards the chassis, Camber is about having the TOP of the tire leaning toward the chassis.

Arrow *i am looking for a mission two*

hey guys,

yeah, this is kind of an interruption of sorts, but i am selfish and i thought that i would ask.

does anyone here want to unload an mi2? preferably with some sort of heavy lower chassis and a front diff? i would love to run this car, after the cleveland, here at the gate. i have been told it won't work, and now i am hoping to prove that it will. i have not seen many of these in the f/s thread and i am growing impatient.

carry on fellas.

Who said this car won't work.
Don't listen to track dummies.
Any car will work with proper setup.

The info you need should be printed on the stock belts.

I wanted to know if any of you Schumacher guys trim the rear belt (narrow it) or clip off teeth to free up the drivetrain. Does that help at all? My rear belt feels real stiff

I wouldn't suggest it. We used to trim teath on the Losi car but this drive train is free enough there's really no need to do that.

Yeah, at most pick up the low friction pulley set and you'll be ready to rock

Aren't the pulleys on the Mi2 the low friction pulleys?

Schumacher sells a narrowed rear belt that helps pn. u2721. The machined diff pulleys make a big difference as well. Ft pulley u2746, rear u2745. My front belt came with every other tooth cut off and holds up well the narrowed rear belt did not last with them cut off tho. The belt will soften up more still if you soak it in WD40 for a week or 2. The machined ones are made of delrin or delrin like material and are slicker than stock ones are.
