I love it how a representative from a company goes out of their way to make sure as many people have the information to build the car properly the first time and someone finds something to complain about.
Don't let that guy bother you...

Everyone else here knows that this is info that isn't included in any manual. Everyone else here knows this is the type of information that you learn from experience. Everyone else here knows that these are tips and not instructions.

And ANYONE who read Adrians first post knows that he is sharing things that team drivers are doing to their cars, NOT trying to write a new manual.

Don't bother trying to explain it to the guy. The fact that this is THE only thread like this for any manufacturer on the boards says all that needs to be said.

He's at 22 post, maybe by post 23 he'll have gotten a clue.

If thats the kind of stuff people are going to be posting here, then I'd rather that Adrian be the only one posting here. For everyone else here other than that guy, this thread is like a gold mine.

Not everyone who buys one will see this post, and not everyone will think to look

This is poor IMO

this information is what serious racers are going to look for.it is tips for the perfect build.you do not find this info in ANY assembly manuals.you find it in R/C car magazines,set up books and so on.Adrian is doing this as a favor to the customers to help them get the best possible build and performance.i am very impressed that he took the time out to do this.

I don't drive a schumacher, but most of the info can be used on any car, Thanks Adrian. Kit looks great, one of the local team guys was building his last weekend, it looked like building was super smooth, I can't wait to see it on the track

I know I'm jumping a little ahead of you Adrian, but here's a little taste for everyone to see what they'll have when they're done.

Great tips so far thanks

One question tho about the droop settings, the kit set up in the the manual How have these been measured ?

Im think that this would be with the chassis lying flat on a set up board then measuring the height from the ground to the bottom of the axle ?? Is this correct just wanted to check before i drop one !!!
