Hey Bob....Check out Latif's car next time he is running. His car already has some of the new geometry It's gotta be the car if Latif is going fast...LOL BTW...Yes, the geometry has changed 100% on the new "EC" series of cars

J/K Latif...Your still my boy

Fair enough! I think the foam tire guys will be very happy with our new car.

My car is the best it's ever been on carpet...hands down.
Thanks to Paul for all the top notch support.

Bob, if you're at Horsham this weekend...come by and check the car out.

There doesn't seem to be any alternative positions on the shock towers for the camber links.

Less adjustment can mean there are fewer set up scenarios to dither over but lets just hope the 'EC' has them in the optimum position to suit everyones driving style...

On the other hand I am convinced you guys at Schumacher know a million more things than me when it comes to setups.

We haven't needed any other positions, just small movements around the upper middle hole.

The front has 2 adjustments that look like a vertical infinity sign there is about a 2.5mm diffrence in front and slightly less in the rear. After running the Mi2 for 2 years all over the world these settings are all we ever used. The camber links on the EC are A LOT diffrent in location than on the Mi2. This is one of the reasons why there is an EC car right now...to get all the latest team tuning to all the racers.

I don't know if anyone's going to have a setup for polished concrete. I assume it's fairly low grip. Try PW's asphalt setup to start. You may need to go a little softer, loose the swaybars to get some grip.

It's on the Schumacher website. Go to the tech section and then to setup sheets. Look for the one that says PW New.
