Is this the same P2 from my days back in San Antonio racing at Hobby Town on Austin Highway? Around 2006-2007

Is anyone running GT12R with this car? If so, how wide is your front and did it require any mods to get it closer to 170?

I am, you need to get Atom 3 front axles. The are 3mm narrower per side. That makes all the bodies fit.

Or, you could run a superkura body and just keep the standard axles.

What spurs are you using for GT12R? I have a friend that just picked one up and I was shocked to find it was 48P and not 64P. To top it off the unique gears make it Schumacher specific so other brands cant be used. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated.

Nobody runs the Schui gear diff stateside. That axle is made for the BRCA rules (narrow tires and 48p mandatory) to make the Atom legal you gotta rock a normal Eclipse ball diff (or any 12th ball diff of your choice)

As far as gearing goes with GT12R and the USGT motor just get as close to a 1:1 gear ratio as your motor mount and gears will let you. Itís like around 120mm to 130mm roll out. I run around a 68 spur 67 pinion myself (CRC car) and obviously give or take on tire wear and track size.

I'w new to pan cars and Shumacher models. Based on history how often do they come out with new models? Are there any other brand wheels and tires that will fit the E5?

Schumacher releases a onroad car arround every two year.

If you by the 3 bolt axle all other brand wheels will fit the E5

What class so you intend on racing GT12 or LMP12? Also what motor will you be running? 21.5, 117.5, 13.5 or Mod? We canít make a recommendation without those details.
