Great to see Andy running and winning with the Schumacher Prototype F1.

I'm pretty sure an earlier version has been raced previously

Original F103 Front, nothing's moving but the kingpins


CRC WTF1, articulated:


By the way you are right for the reactive caster, I forgot I printed parts for that. But still, you can setup the camber and the caster, which is not the case on F103

And this is the 3Racing hop up:

The second picture of the second frontend did come out later for the 103 frontend. Still my statement about what frontends are legal stand Tamiya type either one. If anyone has the center part of the 3racing parts shown in the 2nd frontend I would like to get it.

Roar doesn't have Rubber tire F1 rules.....

"8.7.6.2 Tire type: Foam only"


I think you mean Rob's USVTA F1 rules, that's what everyone uses

Discount RC Store should have them in on Monday. It is $350 and I've pre-ordered a kit from them. They are an awesome dealer to buy from, I've bought stuff for my Schumacher buggies in the past.

Hey guys,
With the launch of the Schumacher Icon I thought it would be a good idea to share some information to help you guys out.
Firstly, I have linked my current setups for high grip carpet, and medium grip tarmac/asphalt. I will work on a lower grip setup sheet for indoor and bumpy outdoors soon. You can find them on the Technical information page on Schumachers website or below.
I have added into the notes section on these 2 setup sheets all the part numbers for the Speed Secrets I use and some other parts that it might be nice to buy with the kit.
High Grip Carpet
(Please remove spaces after h and w) h ttps://w ww.racing-cars.com/content/files/Technical-Info/Set-Up-Sheets/ICON_AM_High_Grip_Carpet_MB.pdf
Medium Grip Asphalt
h ttps:/.w ww.racing-cars.com/content/files/Technical-Info/Set-Up-Sheets/ICON_AM_Arena33_Smooth_Asphalt.pdf

I hope you guys enjoy the car and I'll try to check back regularly if you have any questions about the car or need any setup support. I'll do my best to help!

Default Rear axle

Is the rear axle geometry different than the Eclipse? Are they interchangeable?

The Icon diff fits the Eclipse 1,2 and 3.
However, the Eclipse diffs require a small modification. Using a needle file just .2mm needs taking off the diameter thats in the way of the button heads holding the hex wheel clamp on.
Its very easy to do if you want to use old diffs from the lmp car/spares though.

Alternatively you can just replace this one part if you dont fancy the modification. (to use Eclipse diffs in the ICON) (you can see where the flat would need to be, on the right of the second photo.

Andy, good to see you here and congrats on the 1/12 worlds win earlier this year. Got a question, what is the full length of the lower chassis in millimeters?
