Thanks in advance
I don't think Schumacher makes them? They just make some of them. Like 80T, 84T, 86T, 90T.

Why not check on the Schumacher web page? There you will see that they offer 70, 74, 85, 87 and 89 in 48P as well as 90, 96, 114, 116 and 118 in 64P. Spurs gears for the Mi5 are proprietary and you are stuck with what is offered.

Ok thanks, I just thought I may of been able to get different spurs in order to get the gear ratio for blinky I want and that between 4.5 and 5.4, but none of the spurs give me these rations in 48dp and I really don't want to change to 64dp

The selection of spur gears is limited but there's nothing you can do. I run 64P on my Mi5 and in 17.5 blinky I use a 90T spur and 46T pinion for a 3.5 FDR

I had my first race and had a nice battle with the leader. Just couldn't get past him in the first two finals. And the third I got past him, but it didn't matter :P. It sure was fun!

It was a really tight and twisty track. The grip was low, but the car was really good! Also it was nice and sunny weather.
Set-up via this link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/644zir8tfi...20-04-2014.pdf

What would you like to see on a new car.
Me, a harder bumper, better steering rack a bit more robust, gear diff that can go in the front as well as the back. What do you think.

1. Harder bumper, I'm not having any problems with that, but okay
2. Better steering rack. I'm also not having any problems with it not being robust? I would like to see more holes for more ackermann adjustment. For example the two center holes Ed made on his car.
3. Geardiff in front, a Schumi "own" front geardiff and not a SpecR version, I really like the quality of the schumi diff's.

4. The axle clamps like all other brands have. This clamp type, with the O-ring to ensure the pin gives a lot of play in the rotation movement. It feels like the drive shafts have worn out, but are still new. This type of play is in the clamps. Also the front to back movement is harder to adjust with shims. When you tighten the wheel nut, it takes away room arround the bearings. I just like the normal clamp type other brands have.
5. A way to give the car 0,5 degree armsweep at front, or a different (spare part) arm, to adjust arm sweep, like the rear toe.
6. It's a heavy car, maybe it could loose some weight.

Please keep all the nice carbon parts. The arms and stuff. I really like the idea of all these parts and the uniqueness of the car. I think that's it, I'm really happy with the car, like it is. It's really easy to work on, and the quality of the parts is really good if you ask me.

Regards Robert

Schumacher takes both Modified and Stock titles in the first round of the Dutch Nationals:

My set-up before the rain came in:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/g8llefhydf...27-04-2014.pdf

Track looks a lot like the latest set-up I've posted. It has a bit more grip, and is a little bit more flowing, but still really tight and a lot of slow corners.

Hope it helps.

Regards Robert

1. More slop free steering rack
2. Dual Cardan CVD's as standard in the kit
3. An easier way to change shims under the suspension arms
4. Stronger front bumper plastics

the mi5 is awesome, an upperdeck tweak proof sedan! much better than the mi4.

1. cvd pins coming off has caused me 2 races in 4 years (mi4/mi5)--not bad-but always on my mind, lets change to the modern retainer ring/clip style-not requiring threadlock around that area.

2. a kit that comes with Martin H's. grub screw style of eliminating the outer hinge pin slop

3. provide a 3rd gear diff oring with the kit

4. shorter shock shaft

5. rsd reflex racing shock o-rings

6. a slimmer wrench, the one that is used for the tightening down the arms to the chassis

7. a truely tested stock kit setup for asphalt and carpet not requiring anything else not included in the box

easiest suggestion-let Martin H test the car, make the improvements and then release the new car
