Just put a Reedy Ti 8T double in the car that I have had for a while, geared at around a 9.0 MAN O MAN scary fast , may have to go 10.0 or better but I haven't seen the new layout at this track yet. First time in Mod in awhile.

yeah, but you gotta watch out for the belt construction. the standard gates stuff has an .045 backing, or so, which makes the belt very stiff. the industrial stuff is not designed for efficiency, so much as torque transmission. i assume the cen job would be in the ballpark.

to each his own. personally, i have a top secret belt in the front. and it is 4 tenths faster per lap.

Actually you got that already. At $419.99 with everything you need to race and more in one box by the time you hit the track this will be the least expensive Schu sedan ever. Most guys in the US added ~$200 of hop ups to their Mi2. The EC is an awesome deal.

Right now there are no plans for a center one-way. We see no performance benefit to having one. All the guys with cars that come with center one-ways agree with us. It seems like the first hop up guys with center one way cars get is a locked lay shaft pulley.

The Mi2EC USA Foam Spec will be the ultimate sedan for carpet racing!



-New 2.5mm Carbon lower chassis with revised hinge pin locations and battery location.
-New 2.5mm Carbon super stiff top deck
-New Carbon front and rear shock towers with revised shock and camber link locations
-New Low center of gravity Mi2EC drive train (everything is 2mm lower than on the standard Mi2EC)
-Lower roll centers than the Mi2EC
-New front diff with aerospace T/C thrust bearing
-Stiffer Front Sway Bar, no rear sway bar.
-Stiffer front and rear Pro Springs

The part number is K059 and it will sell for around $439.99. It will be available at the same time as the standard EC car.

The front diff and thicker carbon account for the increase in price. The Foam Spec car will have the same spec at the Mi2EC is it will include

Ti Turnbuckles
Ti Hinge Pins
Purple Alloy suspension mounts
Black Oxide Steel Hex screws throughout
Machined diff and lay shaft pulleys
New shocks
Pretty much everything from the EC with the changes listed below.

This is pretty amazing stuff. A European company developing a ground up foam tire car. If it goes as well as Seaballs Mi2-youve got a winner on your hands. I am glad to see your addressing the shocks and diffs on the Schuie across the board too.

Forget Seaball's car ...if its as good as PW's car at the IIC then Schumacher has a real winner on its hands.
