For now SV2 is my back up car and KF is my primilarly. There is a lot of tuning I have to try on KF and so far I am only playing with the shocks.
My choice is KF SV2 KR(SVR).
I will bring both MM this Sunday so you can try them out.
That would be great! So if I'm reading correctly, if you could only have 1 of them, you would chose the KF?

I was running it for the recent astro race at STK.
I'm just contemplating whether to redo the setup for dirt track.

On a damp track, even RM can also be a struggle.

NICE!!! What are your impressions? Doesn't look like you have an option to set up for dirt track or not. As far as I know, only employees of STK can use that track on a regular basis... unless of course you are one.

Not an employee, and that was my first time with both the car and track.
Easy to drive with the stock setup. Almost felt like a 4wd.

Why I'm contemplating this for even dirt is Tom's setup for low grip astro:

It does look interesting, as the weight bias is shifted much more to the rear. Worth experimenting so I've ordered a ball diff to try with it.

Dude, set it up for this New Year's Day race and let us know how the car handles on medium to loose dirt.

It's a 540 can it will fit but you may need to rotate the motor so the tabs are facing forward to clear the top deck. Changing motor will require take off the whole spur assemble.

Hey guys,

Just wanted to let you know that I have worked with 92zero Designs to get chassis protectors made for Schumachers. Today they posted they are ready!

Their website is being redesigned so you can see them on their Facebook page:

http://www.facebook.com/92zeroDesigns



Until the website is updated, feel free to email them with any questions you have. They have lots of design options, what's pictured are mine

Has anyone tried this on a dry, dusty, clay track?

I can't see the pics linked above for the shorty conversion. I purchased one with my kit but haven't installed it yet. It basically adds another belt tensioner on the right rear bulkhead and uses a longer belt. There are two plastic holders on either side that ride in the 4 little grooves in the chassis and the little tabs on the underside of the side protectors hold them in place, from my recollection it's 3 positions.

Yes it allows 3 different positions for the battery. If you take them out and put the center pieces back on and you can run the saddle pack without changing the rear belt.
