I can answer 2 of your questions.
The grey belts are more efficient and faster. I've been using the front grey with a 7-2 motor. Holding up well and have the run time. Car is a cruise missile.
The wieght of my carbon mission and titanium is 50.4. Well under wieght.

I myself have only tested the 17 pulley. My team mate Jay W. at SoCal has tried both. He so far likes the 20 pulley. It is a rather small track, so I am hesitant to try it yet. My car is extremely fast. I feels faster with a 8-2 compared to a 7-2. Not sure if I'm geared for the 7 turn yet. His car with the 20 pulley is not looking to me to accelarate as good as should. He ended up turning a faster lap time then me though. I think his car steered a little more then mine or its because he drives harder. We are still working hard to get set-up for this track, but getting close.

What size 64 pitch spur gear are most of you guys running for stock? I want to use the largest spur I can fit but also have enough room for the motor to be moved back and forth on the motor mount for the pinions.


Also, the car seems to come with plastic CVD shafts, is that right? And why are most people running the steel shafts for carpet in stock? What are the advantages over the plastic drive shafts and what is the part number and price. Thanks again.

Ty, The stiffest springs that Schumacher do are 35lb and Silver.

The driveshafts have plastic bones. Some people change to the steels as they think they are going to break, i have seen a couple break but have never broken any myself. I use the steel in the rear, and plastic in the front.

Type S: Call Adrain, he works there...

TY: I run a 116 or a 115 (depending on brand). Ialso run the plastic drive shafts for less rotating weight in stock, plus the metal are not needed if all you run is stock.

Cornerspeed: Email me, I can't find your email address so I can send you the setup sheets. JMaurer1@Concentric.Net

So if I want stiffer springs than the Schumacher silvers, do the Associated springs fit the Schumacher shocks?

Corey Bernardo,
How was the Mission compared to the TC3's in stock? Can you post your setup and are running any mods like grey belts or anything extra? Thanks so much.

Racer X- Good run yesterday. Damn does that car have steering. It will take some getting use to if I were to run that car. One battery pack wasn't enough to really get a feel for the car. Tom did look like a racer on a mission Also thanks for the heads up on that speedo. Did you see what happened to mine? It's back to the 7.1 until I get my TC2.

Ty, I haven't ever tried them myself, but am fairly sure that they fit fine. Although i think they are a bit shorter than the Schumacher ones.

MattW,
Thanks for the reply.

Corey Bernardo,
Are you using TRC and Jaco 28mm wheels? I had to put a washer on the hex hub on my Yokomo and Axis 2 for the 28mm foam tire wheels to clear. Do you have to do that on the Mission?
