Are you using the chassis braces on the front and rear? The evo gets so much grip.
Especially in vta you need to free it up, the added grip slows you down.

I would try stiffer springs, thicker shock oil, if the grip is really high I would try thicker oil in the rear diff.

I have 2 original Mi5s. Am running 1 in VTA and 1 in USGT. They are both are setup midmotor for carpet track. They both have 2mm chassis and running rear braces. The main difference is that the VTA has twin point steering.
The VTA runs well and can challenge the fast guys. The USGT pushes terribly under power. Does the twin point steering change the geometry enough to make this change? Or could it be the weight and power difference?

I'm preparing my Mi5Evo for the next round of the ToniSport Onroad Series on Carpet and have a question:

How do the thicker upper deck and the braces work together? Right now I have the 2.5mm upper deck and the 2mm alloy chassis. What would happen, if I opt for the braces and build back to the original 2mm upper deck?

I was asking the same thing both trackside and to a few shops that deal with Schumacher, and am led to believe that a replacement is imminent, but neither stores nor 'trackside' can say if it is another evolution, or a different car.

I get the impression that the only thing the team drivers do different to 'kit' appears to be: the steering, DCJ's, and tuning options such as springs or alloy chassis for indoors.

I have a soft spot for schumachers and am tempted to buy one coz they look very good on track

Drove the mi5 evo for the first time last night on high grip carpet. I really like it. Set it up on the bench like my other cars and it was really consistent and actually very durable. No broken parts after a full day at the track. It does flex a lot so I may go to the aluminum chassis or play with some top decks and rill center adjustments. All in all I really like the car.

Different car. Will go back to a conventional topdeck and wishbones.

That's too bad. I like the design - and it works very well on my home track with medium grip asphalt.

RoyB, play with your droop in the front to have less weight transfer to the rear under power. Should help with the push.

Had way to much droop in the back, reduced it and the car got a lot better.

Correct .. they're Schumacher's solution for this issue .. recommended to use 2x large seals for the case itself ..
