Was wondering how Orlowski was heating his diff. Hold one wheel and hit the throttle or use an external heat source? Grip must have been high to be using 9000cst.

Hagberg I believe said he just holds on wheel to warm up his diff. Im sure you can use any method that engages the diff action.

He probably has multiple videos on how to warm up the rear diff and another video on how to find that video

The aluminium chassis version in now in stock. Shoud be getting a notification email form Amain any day. My guess is to use the Mi8 oils/setup Carpet settings to start with.

Just got the aerox droop blocks. Does this thing really measure the distance from the bottom of the chassis to the axle center? My calipers tell me no..... Guess I shouldn't care since all the schumacher setup sheets seems to use the aerox numbers.

The alloy kits hit the stores this week so lots of info should be coming soon from guys running it! I have a few left from the first batch. Parts are starting to come in more freely now too except for carbon top decks! Those are scarce but there is a company making their own to solve that issue!

^This.
Droop numbers are all relative. This is why Schumacher picked a standard tool for everyone to use so we are all speaking the same "Droop Language".

I would start with Orlowski's ETS Daun setup here: Technical Information Mi9 | Schumacher RC Racing (racing-cars.com)

Note that Schumacher has to sell cars that come out of the box set up for average racers to get around a club track and not a Pro Mod driver at the Indoor Champs during the last round of qualifying. If your track is high grip you'll want the high diff housings and the CF top decks.

Yes, the stiffer rear springs plant the rear and make the rear more stable.
