Hi Guys,
I need some help with getting a new turnbuckle wrench for my EC, what size is needed and any suggestions as to make? I don't really want to get another carbon fibre one, just prefer the aftermarket alloy ones.
Thanks for any advice

Paul

I've used an HPI wrench for a couple of years now, still working perfect. Don't know the part# though.

D'oh, I should have checked the Schumacher site!

Anyway, how about a section on the Schumacher Pitspace for us UK guys to submit setup sheets and have them catagorised by track?

Version 2.0 of Schumacher Pitspace will be up and running very soon. With a few more features. For now keep visiting it's current home http://www.pdubracing.com/schumacherpitspace/

You can emai [email protected] to submit your setups, car pics, ect. At this time they are just broken down by asphault, rubber, and foam tire racing.

Thanks for the suggestion though. We will keep that in mind.

Thank you Paul and Adrain for all of your help at the carpet race. The rubber tire on carpet set up was Dailed. Next time I will try to keep it off the pipes.
