Give Schumacher a call in the morning and shoot them that part number. PW or Adrian should be on here by then to answer your question.

Anyone run the TIR front cvd drives? They work well but they seem to need a good amount of shimming to take up the space behind the hex. The rear stock cvd's are great with no shimming needed.

The drivetrain after running today really freed up nicely and is very smooth. Ran smoothly all day with zero problems. Great day of practice. Glad I made the switch and run the Schumacher car. Only tried about 2% of the adjustments but the car really came around.
they are very good cars(if you know how to set one up)

I must say that is funny. I will be running mine for awhile so getting it setup will be easier the longer I have the car. In 4 packs though the car was coming around nicely.

Default Shock towers

Does any one know if the EC shock towers will fit straight onto the Mi2?

I was just wondering if there were differernt bmi chassis because I have 2 of them and just wondering if the would both be the same. I only ran my car once and liked it so far. Hopeful I can get some more time in this week.

In which way are they different?
I've got the lower teemu shock towers and riser plates. Does this not make a difference?

the teemu stuff is made more for euro tracks,and using the ec shock towers would make the camber link to low on the mi2( what i would do is slot the the upper-middle hole on the mi2 carpet towers up 4mm with a dremel)

Im not sure but i think the teemu stuff is designed for carpet with rubber tire.

I have this done already on mine.
So there is going to be no gain in me putting the EC towers on to the Mi2 then?

Darren the best thing you can do is order an EC. It will solve all your problems. the two cars may look alike but they are very different.

That thought has crossed my mind several times.
But as this is my first year back into racing I'm going to stick with the Mi2 til the end of the year. Then I will change for a brand new kit for next year.

I was just curious about the towers, and wondered if they would make a difference thats all

Thanks for the advice people

Darren

If you have the riser plates, then the std EC towers will fit just fine.

eh Mates,

I have a buddy of mine who will let me run his old Mission. The first mission. What do you guys think about it? Do you still think it can be competitive? I'm a decent driver and just don't have the cash to buy one of the newer TC's

Thanks a million!
