You could get the plastic pivot blocks from the Mi2 and mount them with the indicator ridge facing out. This will give you 1.5.

Car was super consistent again at a local club meeting. I used the meet as practice towards the state titles in a months time, using the T.O27 control tire / insert combo, and using just 1 set for the day.
Qual 3rd, raced to 2nd, 2nd and 3rd in the finals. Beat my previous P.B by around 8-9 seconds in the process.

Definately the best T.C schumacher has ever released, uber consistent and by far the easiest to drive car ive had.

I ended up changing link position on the towers to the upper hole front and rear, smoother transitioning L/R, less twitchy, with slower breakaway.

Hi Gavin,

I was wondering if you have tried lowering the transmission housing on the front yet? (taking out the riser plate and placing 2mm spacers below the top deck).

Thanks,
Leonard.

I havent as yet, this is something Teemu has been doing of late, and is said to gain entry to mid corner steering, something I havent felt the E.C to be lacking at all.

Will get around to trying it at somepoint, but at the moment I havent felt the need to start tweaking with the E.C, its darn good out of the box.

When you got your kit, it should have come with the correct oils. If the setup you wan to run calls for 40 and 70 weight, that's what you need to run. There really isn't any substitute. Sorry.

I finally got to run some outdoor today. Donny and were both running brand new Rubber spec cars. My first time with one. (I've been running the foam spec car at SoCal.) I was very happy with it right out of the box. We both made a couple changes to deal with track conditions and have a few other things we'd like to try next time. Not a big turnout for Modified but Donny did win and I took second after a really great race with a couple other guys.

Yea, Jon looked good out there running with his new car. I had a pretty bad push on entry to the middle of the corner. Mostly a tighter 180 degree or slower 90 degree turns. High speed it's not bad. I basically ran PW's lasted set-up with the exceptions of I ran the front bulkhead lowered. It just has a little in-balance at that thrack the has been there for me for a long time. What always seems to fix it, is anti-squat. But, I'm told a lot that that isn't a good adjustment to make, so I have been trying other things with not much success. The car is really good, but I need to figure this out so it can be great. 1st. I've ran for about 6 weeks. Not so bad I guess.

Oh, I had MOTOR. New horsepower from Curtis at DC. It was singing all the way around the track.
