I wanted to thank Shawn Palmer of Schumacher USA for giving me the oppurtunity to represent Schumacher as one of their drivers. I look forward to racing with Schumacher and working with Shawn and other team guys promoting a great car and great company.

now you just have to get that avatar converted over to on-road.

welcome, sir.

for those of you who don't know adam, he's this year's snowbird's 19t expert oval champion. adam's going to be a big player in on-road if turning right goes as well as turning left has for him.

Thanks guys!

In the few hours I have been on the team, I can already tell that we have a great one. I really look forward to working with you guys. I am gonna try to make it to the Indoor Champs, but even if I can't race I'll be up there to hang out with everyone.

Does anyone have a Schumacher avatar that I can steal?

Hi All

Just completed the MI3, seemed to take a lot longer to finish the car, but the end result is pretty impressive.

Thanks for the tips on the wiring, i ended up putting the corally plug high up on the cell at a 45 degree angle, clears the belt and does not interfere with the tape when strapping the cells in the car.

Only thingi am disapointed with so far is the weight of the car, running 5 cell, it is 1530. Thats a full cell (75g) over the 6 cell weight, let alone trying to tackle the 1350 under EFRA rules.

TC SPec, SP motor, 9550, and Futaba FAAST, with PT. The only heave item i can think of is i mounted a Novak heatsink on the SP motor, which is 16grams.

You can, by reading back over the past few pages you'll see that drivers have been using them a lot. Plus there's a lot of good tips on using them

Yes you can. It'll produce more traction all around. But to use sway bars, you'll need to drill your own holes for the sway bars.
