The following are the parts that will carry over to the SST Mission:

Lower suspension arms
Lower pivot balls
Hub Carriers
Bearings and crush spacers
Hexes
Drive shafts
Blades
Ball studs/cups
Turnbuckles


Everthing else is diffrent. It was time to do a major redo of the SST series. We have a great suspension system but we wanted to update the drive train to incorporate the things we have learned over the last 5 years. As a result many of the parts attached to the drive train had to change.

Everyone at Schumacher UK and USA are beyond excited about this car. There are so many things that are so right about this car.

The new diffs are easier to assemble and adjust, they will diff less if you lift a wheel and they will have less rotating mass. Tungsten balls are included in both kits...

The car will feature a new belt material that has less drag as standard equipment...

New wheel base and suspension sweep adjustments will give races new tools to enhance chassis dynamics...

The twin track drive train will be more efficient than shaft or single belt drivetrains...

And much much more...

Spooky-It will take ~4 weeks to get our Cross shipment. We will have the CF01 FireForce F-1 Car, Bodys (F-1 and Prototype), all the Ti links and hopups as well as the rare hop ups like the T-Bar conversion and others.

If you want a CF01 or a Mission have you local hobby shop call Schumacher USA at 813-889-9691. Do it soon, the first batch of both cars are going fast!

The Threaded shocks will work with the SST Mission.

Reedy and Trinity have 19T spec mods coming out. I have Reedy 1st gen prototypes but I think the production motors will be better. Trinity just released the Chameleon 2. It has better magnets and a comm lock.

Mika-You can't go wrong with either brand. Look for voltages over 1.125v, IR's less than 20. If you run stock or 19T run time is unimportant. For mod get cells over 350sec.

looking for a new touring car and the SST mission sound great.
Just wonder any option parts that I need to buy like
One way for front and mid, U drive, Graphite componments etc..

( please don't do a XXX-S or Pro 3 where u need to buy so much options parts)

Valua for money is very important, like the TC3 team kit and Yokomo SP.

The belt looks like a ABC two belt system. Can't wait to see the actual car.

Kitracer......there will be two versions of the car a standard kit and a PRO kit. The prokit will have the graphite and stuff in it. They will both come with alum motor mounts and carbide diff balls aswell as swaybars as standard equiptment. You wont need to get too many hopups if any when you get the car. This thing is going to be DIALED out of the box.

Thanks for the info, AE_Racer...I've tried a number of motors, and just keep coming back to my good ole trusty P2k for overall performance...some the other motors are really fast at first, but die fast or require a lot of maintenance to keep them fast, probably due to excessive heat, which kills magnets and brushes...seems the P2k is a lot more resilient and robust...hopefully the new version will maintain that...

Thanks for the update on the Mission...can't wait to get mine. Adrians comments about the success of the suspension, and improvements in efficiency of the drive train, all point to a model that will keep Schumacher at the top of the heap...

Later Dudes...

Yea, other than a X-Star, Midnight 2, and some of the older Paradox's, and 1 Rage(chunked it as soon as I ran it once), all i've ever run is P2Ks..I've had regs, Pros, one Fantom, and now running an Axiom..Never had one fail on me
