Jon- are you bringing the car to Oside this Saturday? I'm interested in checking it out.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Can someone explain how certain amounts of rebound are achieved?

When a setup sheet say's 20% rebound does that mean the shock rod is extending to 20% of it's full length?

Also, what should the theorhetical difference be to the handling after adjusting it, i.e. err, what does it do

Chris Ashton uses Mi2EC caps on his Mi3. The Mi2EC cap does not have a side bleed hole and does not have a vent hole above the bladder. They are a little harder to build all the same but with the EC cap you will get rebound.

PW and I prefer the Mi3 cap as the shocks all build up the same every time with not effort at all. To get rebound on the Mi3 shock use 1 or 2 shock o-rings between the bladder and the cap or Much More rebound foams.

Sorry. I'm heading up to the new asphalt track at BCR for some testing. I'm not sure what's going on next week. I'll let you know if I'm heading to Oceanside.

Cheers, what effect does rebound have on the car?

where did PW get those rose joints that he's using for the rear hub carrier - and why has he fitted them rather than the rpm ballcus he'sused elsewhere?

Default How to free up the car

AdrianM/PW: c'mon bro- let us in on your speed secrets. How is it that you pro drivers get those cars to run so smooth and free. A known Corally driver from PP told me of crazy tricks and tips...just let us in on how to really free up the car- what can be done to the bearings, drive shafts, axles, bones, belts, hubs, pulleys...let it all out

Heres a secret learn to drive a full 5 minutes an inch off the board without slowing down or hitting anything. Then worry about freeing up your already probably fairly free transmission.

Oh yeah if you were a Thetan 7 you would know all the tricks of the trade.

yyhayyim - No tricks...just build it. We have really good oiled bearings (not greased). On other cars you have to get this grease out to make the car free but not on Schumacher cars.

Those are Serpent rod ends from the 720 nitro sedan he used to run. They let him raise the outer ball a lot if he chooses to do so.

I prefer the stock Schumacher Ball Grippas. They are the strongest ball cup on earth. If you want to tightern them up place a poly bag over the ball and snap the cup on. It will cut a disc and push it on the ball cup. Experiment with bag thicknesses to get the fit you want.
