Talking

AdrianM-

I can't believe the great news from Schumacher USA. A new TC on the way and now the distributor for the Cross Racing Fire Force. I just started racing the Cross F1 a few weeks ago and it was a blast! Parts availability was one of the major concerns for me when I was making the decision whether to try the Cross.
Please tell me that the hop-up parts for the Fire Force will be available through Schumacher USA as well.

Questions on the SST Mission Pro TC-
Will any of the Axis 2 parts fit the Mission? Front-one way, threaded shocks, alloy hub carrier, etc...?

Looking forward to more great news!
Thanks,
Brad "Masato" Murata

Masato- You will be able to use the following: threaded shock bodies, arms(f/r), if you are talking about the front one-way diff, then yes.

Racer X- Good run last night. Sorry about your car. If that happened to my chassis someone would die! That's $70 plus down the drain not to mention all of the parts in the front that were broken. Just be thankful that you weren't running my car. My chassis cost $147.....LOL See you in about two weeks. I'm taking next week off.

The SST Mission Carbon and S1 will be available at the end of
October.

K026 SST Mission S1 $229.99
K027 SST Mission Pro $279.99

Everyone at Schumacher UK and USA are very fired up about this car. We are all certain that this is the very best touring we have ever released.

Masato-We will have all the hop ups. They will be here in ~2weeks. We had several samples of the FireForce at the Chicago Show. 2 Stock and 2 Full Option. The stock cars were very impressive and the full option cars were out of this world!

Adrian,

in looking at the picture of the mission, a fair amount of parts look like they came from the Axis 2 bin, will you guys be offering a chassis conversion kit, or are they too far apart ? ..

Also the Cross car ? It will be there in two weeks ? or the hop ups will ? I have been holding off getting a cross becuase nobody in the states has a good supply of parts.... thanks again to schumacher...

Masato/Corey, I would assume that you can't use the current one-way front as the pulleys are different. Adrian could you confirm??

Default Carry Over Parts.

I believe the only carry over parts from the Axis2 are the wishbones, hub carriers and hex adapters and shocks.

The new car uses 2 different ratio's and has different diff's, and I believe you cannot use the current one-way!?

However, the new diffs finally use standard size diff balls!

All of the suspension parts cross over including the shock towers. It's only the chassis and drive line thats all new (possibly new bulkheads too). The diffs, however, are completely new (being part of the drive line) as the one ways won't cross.

Man talk about luck, i just ordered an axis 2 the day before the mission was on schueys page. oh well. i am just wondering if any brand of body fits better or worse on the axis 2. i used to run a pro 2 and protoform bodies didnt fit so well along with some others. thanks

Default Bodies

We have always run Protoform bodies on our Schuie's.
Particularily the Stratus (of course), 300m, or the new Volvo S60.

They mount and fit great!
