If anyone races the Axis 2 on carpet with foams, have you tried the graphite upper deck used by Teemu Leino? What effects would that have on the car? Should I be using the front one-way or the diff? What about the ABS, should that be set tight or loose? Thanks for the tips.

Ty: I've never run with foams, but on carpet I would run the diff one way and probably leave the ABS loose (for more steering). Carpet tracks are always tight and high traction. The one ways will help turn the car better. As for the top plate, it would stiffen the car up more (eliminating traction) but I don't know if its really necessary. I would concider running the X battery brace as that will stiffen the car up too. Hope that helps...

TY, I do run on carpet alot and with Foam tires you do not want to run the front 1way diff, the car is much easier to drive with out it. You can run the ABS or the 1 way pulley if you can handle it. I run a custom cut top deck that is .110 thick so the graphite one that Teemu uses will work but is not the same as mine. When you put the top deck on make sure that the every thing is level like the front upper bulkhead to the motor mount and the rear upper bulkhead to the motor mount, b/c on mine I had to shim it up on the motor mount to get it all to sit even. Teemu has his own chassis that does not have the chassis doublers its almost like the axis 1 chassis so his fits right on. One thing that I have found is that you might want to try softer springs like 25lbs to 20lbs springs and move the lower mounting hole on the arm to the outside hole. This will make the springs stiffer but not make the car real hard to drive like it is when you run real stiff springs. Other then that just try to run your car the same front and back with a stiffer spring in the front, but same oil and pistons and locations on the towers. Also move the upper arms to the lower holes that will slow down the roll speed of the car and not let it over rotate with the higher grip.

Hi guys, I got my Axis 2 today(thanks SirSpeedy!), it has front oneway, and center ABS, and both swaybars..Im hoping to run it this Friday, I normally run an Atlas with a front swaybar and no oneways(too expensive!) Now, Im more than likely gonna run Corey's setup and see how that works, should I run the oneways and swaybars along with that setup? I run about half of an oval and we have maybe 2 really sharp turns, the track is permanent and is pretty smooth asphalt...Thanks for your help in advance

AE-

That car has the standard setup on it. The one with Red springs and 80wt. That is the setup you should start with. Good Luck. If you have any questions about that car, just ask Chris Seeba. He races at your track.

johnbull-

I am not sure if PW knows that RCTouring went down, but I will tell him to check this out when I talk to him next. PW is the current Team Manager for Schumacher USA, and doing his fair share of racing as well.

Later...

Hey Joe,

It's great to see you guys are still at it!!! It sounds like racing is really going well in Malta.

I'm now working for Schumacher USA doing sales, tech support and team manager. I also try and race when I can, but it's tough after working with R/C all week....hehe I also got married last October and thats been awesome!

Pass the thread along to Josh...

Have the Team Drivers been using this car? It says that it will be out in October but has there been any testing prior to its release?

Given how different the new car will be, I take it that there is no chance in hell for an upgrade kit.

It is my understanding that there won't be a car at the Chicago show to see, just pictures. No US testing will be done before its release in Oct, all testing will be done in Europe. Theres more information, but I don't know if I can give it out yet...

Well since its all out now, here:




New Schumacher TC


The new revolutionary Mission is born from the
same stable as 9 times USA National
Champion the SST. Developed in England
using the highest quality components the
Mission will be the most adjustable and
tuneable touring car on the market today. The
Mission boasts a new high specification
including Alloy Motor Mount, tungsten carbide
diff and thrust balls and alloy shocks. It is
also the first car on the market to have
adjustable internal ratio (1.8:1 or 2.1:1) using
the new revolutionary belt system. Its features
include:

-NEW twin track, ballraced, limited slip ball differentials

-Now with tungsten carbide balls as standard! ~ Offers long
life with super smooth running, low rotating mass for fast
acceleration.

-NEW variable internal ratio (1.8:1 or 2.1:1) ~ This unique feature
allows your gear ratio to be optimised to your motor wind, for both
short technical circuits & fast open circuits.

-NEW rear inboard toe-in options ~ For excellent traction on slippery
surfaces.

-NEW front inboard toe-out options ~ For more front end bite on
slippery surfaces.

-NEW dual belt zero angled transmission ~ Ultimate efficiency,
therefore faster runs with greater duration.

-NEW large differential & layshaft pulleys ~ To minimise belt
loading without the belt jumping, maximises belt efficiency.

-NEW purple alloy motor mount ~ Strength & heat dissipation.

-NEW 24 piece ball bearing set ~ Ultra low rolling resistance,
includes ballraced steering!

-NEW Front & rear anti-roll (sway) bars included.

-NEW body mounting system ~ Offers even better body stability.

-NEW low friction belt tensioner ~ Accurate belt adjustment.

-NEW lightweight foam bumper ~ Weight saving protection.


The Mission will be available in two versions, S1 and Carbon Fibre
and will be available in late October.


Look CLOSELY at the drive belts in this picture:

whoa, wait a second, you mean, there is two pulleys on the rear diff, or am I looking wrong? It looks to me like the belt to the front is rolling on a pulley on the rear diff....hmmm
