Schumacher should be well represented at Cleveland this year. I know I'll have mine there.

I've got a good set up for foam carpet so far but I have to wait for the new carpet to be laid down before I can perfect it.

You don't need them. I haven't tried stock yet but the drivetrain if more than free enough for mod. And thats right out of the box. It took about 3 hours of work to get my xray to spin that free.

Hi guys. I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a new member to the Schumacher team as of today. (thanks Paul ) I'll be getting my new car probably on Wednesday and I'll be doing a lot of work with it and a lot of reading for a while on this car to get up to speed. I look forward to being able to help out anyone with any questions once I get to know the car well enough. Until then I'll be reading and learning as fast as I can. I'm really looking forward to running this car and representing Schumacher.
Holy Crap Jon, Congrats! You're going to really like the car, it's very good. But now you gotta deal with that PW guy

PW has been great already. I'll be meeting with Don V this week to go over the ins and outs of the car and get a good setup on it. Got some testing to do in the next couple weeks. Regionals are coming up fast!

STLNLST- I'll be running 19 turn at the Regionals. You?

I talked to Don at the Hitec race. He's really a nice guy, gave me some tips to get some more out of a box-stock chassis.

Paul is one of the nicest guys in the industry, just speak slowly, as things tend to go over his head preaty easily

Thumbs up

Thank you Paul for the set up. With service like this any one can see why the Schumacher is so strong in the US.

Excellent Work

Its just a shame that more people have yet to realize this. After this carpet season I have a felling that Schumacher will turn a few heads.
