The alloy pulley will have slightly more slop than the RW, but will last pretty much for the life of your car.

Here are some pics of a fan mount that I made from a broken CF battery tray. The mount is drilled for 2 fans, although I only have one right now. Charlie did you get my email . I added a separate switch for the fans and put a plug between the wires soldered to the ESC and the fan so I can remove the mount and fans while wrenching, or some other reason...

Nice car. Was wondering if there would happen to be a pre-fabricated fan mount for the mi2. I guess not though as you made your own.

Secondly, if I wanted to replace all the screws on the bottome of my chassy so that it sits perfectly flat what part number should i refer to for the screws?

R/C Innovations makes fan mounts for lots of cars, I think they're kinda expensive so that's why I just made my own. Go to http://coolcan.usmanbiz.com/pages/schumacher.htm for the Mi2 mount.

I really like the Titanium Racing screw kits, I've only stripped like 2 of the screws ever and I've been using them for a long time. They're expensive though...

TNM8532 - TiR Ti screw kit Mi2
TNM8532B - TiR Ti screw kit bottom Mi2
TNM8532T - TiR Ti screw kit top Mi2

R/C Screws makes some nice stainless screw kits that much cheaper. One thing to keep in mind is that with the stock 2mm chassis since the countersunk holes arn't that deep the screws might stick out a tiny bit even with the TiR ones. A thicker chassis such as the Teemu chassis or BMI ones helps, too. I have a 2.5mm chassis and TiR screws and it's perfectly flat.

Good showing for Schumacher at the Summer Sizzler hosted by Scotty Ernst and Trackside Hobbies. With over 90 entries it was one intense day of racing. Here is a quick rundown of the finishes for Schumacher that I remember:
Chris Goetz(Seaball) Qualified 4th in stock foam and 6th in 19turn, don't know the finishes as the mains were pretty wild. He definitly had his MI-2 flying by the end of the day.
Nick Stampfel (Ottoman) Qualified 5th in Modified Foam, but unfortunatly broke in the main. His car was wicked fast but just could not find the balance he needed
James Newberg (Me) Qualified 2nd in stock rubber and won the A-Main. Car was good early in the day, but developed an entry push suddenly for the main.
Here is a short list of the drivers that were there, to make this one hell of an event:
Brian Jucha
Brad Johnson
Jeff Cuffs
Stephen Sobottka
Eli Ezrow
Mo Denton
Andrew Ellis
Chris Goetz
Later
Jim
P.S. For all you guys going to Vegas and running rubber tire classes, the handout tire is the CS-27
