Default mini pins

I am looking for some schumacher mini pins (yellow) and some 20 mm rims for them. but I cant find a schumacher dealer. Any one know where I can get these tires?

In case you are wondering they are for racing tc on astro turf and polished wood.

Couple of things to note from my findings this past Sunday. Wasn't the greatest day for me, but I did learn a few things.

Stock racers: You can run about two teeth taller than what you would normally gear a TC3 or Losi, etc.. I was able to go up in gear and still have incredible punch out of the corner.

Kick up. I found that the car did not react very well to kick up. IT does react well with antidive. The kick up made the front end kind of wash out. Antidive smooths the car out making it easier to drive and provides the right amount of on power and off power steering. I like .030 anti-dive. (speaking in terms of foams on carpet).

Arm spacing: Both front and rear arms moved to the most forward position still feels best to me. I "THINK" it gives the feel of a more balanced car.

Battery position: I am still running them at an angle. Front being in and the rear being kicked out. BUT, when moved full forward the car has much more steering.......

One more thing to add to that Rob that I found was that my car seems to like the same shock oil ft and rear. I had a 10 wt split to start with and changed to the same and it was amazing how much difference 10 wt made!!

I also found I could run more gear in 19 turn than with my tc3 and it had plenty of rip in the corners and most guys thought I was running a full mod...no kidding!!

EA,

What oil and piston were you running? Brand of oil too? I started out at the Birds with 50wt front and rear and then went to 60/45 and seemed a little better, but I also made so many changes that I cannot say for sure which dampening was better.

I am running the 20 tooth pulley (1.8). I do plan to try the other just to feel it out.

That is funny you found you could gear up too. It's wierd. Gear up and still rip out of the corner.......... The car has a great drive train (not just good for belts, but a great drive train).....
