Default Schumacher Mission, how is it?

Anyone who got one? How is it to adjust? And how does it handle? Is it fast, the drivetrain seems very promising? Anyone got anything bad to say?

The car is faster for me. Its not even set-up for the track I race on yet. Its getting close. It has more run time and the speed is definatly faster. The car really accelarates hard. Adjustability is easy and a lot to adjust. Very durable as well as always the Schumacher cars have been. Check the Schumacher Corner thread for more info and other insight.

Thanks for the input.

Before I started this thread, I looked into Schumacher corner - more than 30 pages ! It take very long time to look through all that... That's why I prefer seperately threads, instead of those monster threads. They are not searchable !

So if anyone could please put more info in here, I would be greatfull.

Default shumacher mission

THE MISSION IS ONE OF THE BEST NEW CARS TO HIT THE MARKET IN A LONG TIME .NOT A HYPED UP CAR LIKE THE LOSI XXX' S OR THE XRAY,WHICH ARE GOOD CARS BUT MORE HYPE THAN REALITY.
THE MISSION WORKS VERY WELL RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX ,NO EXTRAS OR HOPUPS NEEDED.

IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A NEW TOURING CAR TO RACE LOOK NO FURTHER !!! JUST BUY A SHUMACHER MISSION!!!

The missions are dominating our carpet track. Much to the dismay of all the TC3 owners and the rest. The next fastest car is a MR4TC with older chassis. Everyone else is 1/2 a lap or greater off the track record.

this is spaz's bro not spaz. im using his name to post cuz i can't make my own apparently... but I bought one and i made the A main in my first week. im not to experienced in RC either i've raced trucks for about 3 weeks, I think. i just changed the camber to -1 and +1, stuck the nose up in the air and added shock spacers because it has kind of a tweak in the right front and left rear. I finished 5 out of 7 cars and beat spaz too!!!! but he got hit and the switch on his speed control got hit up halfway so he was stuck for a few minutes. i think that it is a very good car and would definitly recommend it.

P.S. the track that I race at is a slippery surface, it is actually for rollerhockey.

It all depends on your perspective...those who have a Mission, seem to really like them-fast, adjustable, stable. Those who don't, hate to see them show up at the track...(lol)

sac- What is hyped up about the XXX-S? Don't be mad at Losi for advertising. Both cars are very good cars that have been very good at what ever track they show up at. If anything all of the hype comes from people on message boards.

AND THEN AGAIN YOU NEVER SEE LOSI POSTING THINGS ABOUT THE WEAK FRONT END'S AND BUMPERS,THE HIGH CENTER OF GRAVITY ISSUES WITH THE FRONT OF THE CAR GIVING IT A MAJOR PUSH ON LONG HIGH SPEED TRACK'S,ALONG WITH SOME OTHER ISSUE'S.I CANT GET INTO, DO TO THE LIMITED TIME HERE ,BUT FOR MY "HYPE" COMMENT THERE IS MORE I CAN SAY BUT I WON'T

If you are a track owner then hopefully you listen to your customers better than you listened to what I had to say because never once in my comments did I say that the Losi car wins at every track. All cars on the market have had an issue or two, no car is perfect. Not even your beloved mission!!! Please take the time to re-read my earlier post or have someone read it to you because I said BOTH CARS HAVE BEEN VERY GOOD AT WHATEVER TRACK THEY SHOW UP AT.......actually the more I think about it....if you read my quote backwards maybe it does say that they Losi wins at every track. Bottom line Mission & XXX-S are great cars.

stlnlst

sorry i came across that way on the reply,and yes you were right about the way you worded your staements about the xxxs winning.it was late and i was trying to answer 2 comments at one time ,when i should of done it one at a time .

yes i am a fan of shumacher cars, but not just them .losi cars are good but there are others car out there just as good if not better that will never get reconized due to being smaller companys with smaller race budgets .and just so you know i DO listen to my customers.and give them my full attention ,just like what i am doing here .
