Talking

Matt, Thanks for filling me in. No big deal. Conceptually, The Tamiya and HPI races are the ones we should emulate. The only difference is that the categories are fewer in number. Off the top of my head I'm thinking.....
1.Novice stock/ any 1/10 tc 'box stock'/ maybe even a "can motor" spec. / handout tires
2. sportsman stock/ any 1/10/ hop ups but no chassis mods. / stock handout motor/ handout 24mm tire

3. Expert stock/all 1/10 tc/ handout motor/ chassis mods allowed/ any 24mm tire.

And so on. Remember....this would be all Schumacher. Mod motor classes....maybe even Big 6.
The goal is to increase Schumacher presence. Showcase the product. promote comeraderie and education of drivers.
The smaller product line can be useful. It may never be as big as TCS or HPI, but again.....thats part of the unique nature.

And also. The cars would all have to qualify to ROAR specs. As Rcpigz just said, schumacher has an attitude of its own. Having the schuie series woul be a awsome thing for the USA. If the club wants to have it, it would go on their own expense. We are still in the development stages of making all the final touches, just ideas for now

Has anyone tried the roll center mod with a one-way? Just curious to see how that would work.

RCDougie: In stock its the hot ticket. Tons of steering and cornerspeed. I always run it on asphalt and I'm currently running it on carpet, however they just started to allow foams in stock so the one way will be coming out for that (and the 19t going in...)

Default Roll Center Enhanced

Running 19turn Foam(TM Plaid front, TM Purple rear) I found the roll center adjustment gives the feeling of a 1way using the front diff. I loved the change and TQd Ottawa immediately after trying. Sweet, thanks Paul and Adrian.

I've been running the roll center mod/ one way combination on medium traction asphalt/rubber tires now for about three weeks...its fast and easy to drive. Try it....

Here's a tech question for you guys...any suggestions on how to reduce chassis roll? I'm running 19t on a huge asphalt track, and in the sweeper my Mission rolls way too much. Currently running 45 wt oil/blue springs all around. Tried running without sway bars, and it felt better, but way too much roll. The sway bars reduce the roll but take away some traction. Thinking of going to red springs around. Any other suggestions?

Thanks..

Mark, not sure where you are running you shocks, but generally if you stand them up (on the mount) you will reduce roll. I generally seem to be running middle front and 2nd from outer rear.

you could also try softer shock oil with the sway bars, or thicker shock oil......

MattW and IMPACTplayer...shock upper mounts are center front and rear..I thought about moving it out one hole as you suggest Matt, and may give it a try this weekend.

I'm running 45 wt oil, and hestitate to go any lighter than that. I tried running without sway bars, but way too much roll...running sway bars fr and rr now. Going to try red springs this weekend. With both sway bars on its not nearly as bad...

I have also been running the lower mounting in the outside hole at the rear, but then going 1 rate softer with the springing. Blues all round does seem soft.
