Any advice on how to increase rear end grip. running shocks in middle postions at the moment with the standard shcumacher white and blue springs.

Its really loose on the rear end and almost undrivable, any quick changes i can do for tonight. i have the other schuey springs, its a low grip tarmac track.

im running 45 wt oil all round at the moment.

Maybe soften up the oil all round down to 35wt all round, scheuy white or HPI Blue's front and back. lay the rear shocks all the way down, 1mm shim between camber link and bulkhead

Shorter wheelbase makes your car rotate better and faster on the APEX. Less Toe in on the rear, Lower Roll Center gives you rear traction.

With everyone seemingly wanting to get into the gear-diff rage, does Schuie have anything up their sleeves?

Hey buddy, try laying the shocks down in the back, slip a half mm shim in the very rear toe block to increase rear toe (which INCREASES rear bite). You could also try a smidgon more droop in the back as well.

Default Tamiya steel driveshaft for TIR spool?

Hi
I've seen talk on this thread about tamiya 46mm steel drive shafts fitting the TIR spool, this is something I'd like to try as the TIR shafts have been breaking far too frequently.

I've looked around the net and can't determine which driveshaft I should get from tamiya, can anybody give me a part number of a shaft that will fit.

Thanks

7 months and they're not even bent

You can drill the Schumacher hex and shim out to fit

I drilled the rear TIR shafts and hex also its much more reliable

So I have a messed up story for you. About a month ago I ordered some parts direct from schumacher online with my debit card. Then last week someone is all over GB spending my money and it wasnt me. I never bought from GB before so just a coincidence?
