IslandBwoy....The World's CVD's are manufactured by a seperate company (Titanium Racing) and not Schumacher. Titanium racing parts ony fit titanium racing cvds and Titanium Racing does make a cvd rebiuld kit for the World's CVDs.....BTW,I think it would be more productive to call Schumacher when you have an issue like this instead of have a "Major Beef" title thread.

Happy to hear the Mission setup worked and congrats on your finish!!!

The stock plate is 2mm. Taking it out and putting 1mm shims will only lower it half way. You can try and lower it to the chassis but I've always found the to give it too much turn in. Way too agressive. Only dropping it 1mm is where I'd start. Make fine adjustments to see what happens. If it's not enough, go all the way to the chassis. The only time I like to make drastic changes and go to the extreme on an adjustment is if I'm not sure what it will do to begin with. That way I can really tell what it's done to the car easily and back off from there to fine tune it.

i tried out the mi2 last saturday, and personally, i prefer lowering the the front arms to the chassis, i really like the turn-in and mid corner steering; however, i think i have a bit too much exit steering that coming out of the corners the it causes the car to be a bit slow, like the front tires are scrubbing too much...

Hey guys,

I wasnt trying to send a flaming Post or antyhing like that nor was i trying to offened anyone by titling it major beef i just wanted to be sure that everyone became aware that these parts are not compatible with the stock cvds. When the LHS and the team guys that i spoke assumed that they were the same size but turned out not to be i figured i would let everyone else know about. Take no offense to my post nor the title. My so called beef with this one part has makes no reflection about how i feel about the best car i've ever driven.

R.

One thing you may try then is adjusting the rear roll center. Are you using the aluminum hub carriers? If so, I normally run either 1-2mm shim under the ball stud in the inside hole. You can lower that and that will lower the rear roll center and get you a little more rear grip. You could also try lengthening the rear camber links.

ON a lighter note does anyone know where i can get an 1/8 inch reemer? I've been to harbor freight, sears and yet noone knows what i'm talking about or only have graduated reemers. I'm willing to pay the price of shipping if you guys know where i can get one for sure. I like to CA the holes in the arm links regularly and reem them out so that are perfect size but it is so cumbersom doing this with an exacto.

I know Dynamite used to sell one. I think Racers Edge also has one. Don't know what shops carry them though.
