Default Snowbirds..

I know it's a ways off, but can you Florida boys give me an idea of tires and other goodies I might start needing to put together for the Snowbird race in Feb? I plan on racing my Mission in Stock and possibly 19 turn rubber...so I'll need setups for carpet and tire/insert suggestions.

Thanks for any suggestions...I'm looking forward to meeting and racing with you guys in Feb...

All of the racing here in Central Texas has been on asphalt, but we have an indoor carpet track opening soon...hopefully will get a chance to practice on carpet before making the trek to Florida...

Can anyone tell me where I can order a mission on line (USA) are they shipping yet? I tried the Schumacher page but it didnt help much. I never ran a Schuie before but the mission looks sweet!

You could just call Schumacher USA and order it over the phone. Is there a reason why you must order online?

Hi
I have the new kit but no time to build yet. I just have taken a look at the manual. I was wondering if the center steering link is an adjustable link??? That would be nice. It's not clear in the manual.

Also there is no explanation of when to use which pulley. Big one on big cicuits???

Thanks

O yeh, the kit came with black belts. They say the grey ones are for stock racing only. We have a 12T limit so thats not really modified. Would it be possible to use the stock belt with 12T???

Greeting

Speedracer16- Right on man. Glad to have you as a teammate.
A suggestion for the build. Get a 3mm tap to thread the holes in the plastic. It will save time and blisters if you use the stainless steel screws. I took mine back apart last night and tapped all the threads after 50% of the car completed. Car goes together well. Its gonna rock. Will see you Saturday. I will save you a spot if you like.

Sander, What rear pully to use depends on what overall ratio you are looking for. In the UK with an Axis 2 it was not unusual for us to run 31 tooth pinion. We would now use the 20tooth rear pully and then use 3 teeth smaller (28) to attain the same ratio. This obviousely has benefits for rotating mass ect. Also with a bigger pully the transmission should be more efficient as there isn't such a harsh bend in the belt. If you generally use a much smaller pinion then would be worth consddering the smaller pully.

Belts, I wouldn't recomend running the grey rear even with 12 turn. The grey front is fine though and it can still be run as loose as you want.

The steering link can be adjusted, it is essintially 2 ball cups with a theraded bar in the middle. If you want to lengthen it then you can un-screw it a little.

Hey, sorry I havent been around much but there was vacation and this new Mission to build. Got mine yesterday and I'm racing it tomorrow. Kit builds REAL nice. Finished car looks really...finished. Instructions have been improved too. I'm just waiting for the batteries to finish charging and then its test run time! Look out Stockton...

I notice you guys dont seem to use the standard Take Off Insert but use Echo inserts. They are very light are they not? What would you recommend for TO 27 and 32 on med-high grip smooth asphalt in both cool and hot conditions? Also with Sorex 32 and 36s do you use HPI blue like I do?

Thanks
