I heard about the new steering blocks and pins this past weekend! Thank-you Schumacher!!!!

I cannot say enough about this company! Mark Musgrove!! You are the MAN when it comes to support!

Production changes on the fly!!

Lou's-Speedway and Hobbies in Dorchester Ontario Canada has sold 5 kits so Far with two more on their way. We will support this car and company fully for years to come!

Im also glad so many are using the simple 14mm bolt mod! it makes this car so much better.

I used the super soft Spec-r orange "O" rings in my shocks. Zero leakage so far.

No, the 4mm button hex gives lots for a driver to grab onto to get it threaded in nice and straight without prethreading

No. I never bothered with that 'fix'. That was for more or less, the prevention of extra movement of the lower caster piece on the outer pin. For this, just simply shim as needed. .1 shims do this job nicely.

I was thinking about drilling a hole in the front hub carrier, tapping it for the
3mm grub screw and then locking it down on the 4mm screw to hold it in place, and keep it from getting loose.....

any thoughts????

No issue here bro

Team Schumacher has done a fabulous job with designing the total pkg with this kit. The kingpin issue more than likely was a 'non-issue' with their bevy of team drivers but in the hands of us mere mortals, a weakness have reared its ugly head. But not to fret...once pin-pointed, our concerns were heard, running corrections were made and we have new parts. Bravo Schuie!! Bravo

I wonder if there has been any testing or thoughts on the impact of varying thicknesses for the top deck?

Did you run your car with the conventional battery or the shorty? Is anyone else running the shorty setup with success? I know Captain America really likes his!

Conventional only for now. If I had another, I would run shorty.

I have a firm bumper on my car. I think its a x-ray firm bumper. it really takes a beating...
I have a pic with a shorty pack and the firmer bumper, its between 5-10 pages back.

Adrian M, (the lucky devil) even found a P-DUB bumper. If he ever brings his car out here to calif he might suddenly find it missing...j/k Adrian..
