Matt/mb racer: thanks for the tips. it's true, the car does feel good as it is with the std. towers but i guess you can never be to dialed ... hehehe i do notice though that most of the set-up sheets i see by the pros, including PW's 19T set-up at reedy used the lowered towers.

This is much worse than your usual UJ chatter.

Any suggestions?

Should I have replaced the axles as well as the dog bones?

If so what's the part number?

Thanks

I saw in someones picture that they had re drilled holes to adjust the ackerman on the steering knuckle, do people think this will remove the chatter, and also possibly get rid of the mod corner push?

Most of the setup sheets use low towers because they also use Tamiya shocks, which are shorter than the Schumacher ones.
Other than that, I think the low towers also have the upper mount positions more inwards/laid down, but I really don't want to dig in my pile of things to check this at the moment...

Default Thanks a lot

Hi all,

I'd like to say thanks again mo for the setup info you gave me last week. I cross referenced a few of your setups and got my car handling surprisingly well for the races sunday at superior.

After driving the MI2 I'm even more disappointed in the performance of my original mission so i have a couple questions about that if you guys dont mind reliving your mission days.

1st: question/comment: the ball screw that holds the front and rear hubs have to be the worst system i've ever seen. I'm not the worst driver but i think i takes very little to pull that screw out of place and once that happens the plastic hub is usually pretty useless there after. ARE THERE ANY MODS TO GET RID OF THIS PROBLEM. I would imagine this is is a comon problem considering how many times i've replaced these parts. How did you guys deal with it?

2nd: I'm not exactly sure HOW i'm doing this but last week i broke TWO axles in the front. Once i got side swiped and the other time i'm not sure what the hell happened. This is more a general question but did you guys ever havce a problem with the front axle/cvd joints?

Thanks for all your help.

Default Tamiya shocks

I forgot this in my last post: I have had the hardware for my tamiya shocks on back order for bout a month now and what i'm being told is that the hardware is not being manufactured anymore and they are not planning on making a replacement! WTF? is this tru? The part that i'm speaking of comes from the trf design. Is there any other way i can get these shocks to mount on my mission?

Islandboy...

Are you running a spool or 1 way in the front, if so, get yourself the Ti or MIP CVD, it really is needed. If your running a diff, you can also ensure that you do not have too much steering throw dialled into your radio. As far as the ball issue, make sure you are not screwing them down and touching the Axles inside the hub. This can cause alot of grief(including axel breakage. I used the ti balls in my Mission, and they generally never pulled through, and bent a whole lot less.

I used the hardware that came with the shocks, plus the Ti standoffs available from Schumacher. That should work. Not sure on the length, but I think it is 66mm

Thanks for the advice on the axle.

There has been a number of request for rubber tire/carpet setups. We have not raced on carpet yet this year (in the USA), but I have posted Teemu's carpet/rubber tire setup at www.gearchart.com

Yeah. I'm running at TQ, and while the one way gives the car more power than 99% of the cars in my class those front hubs dont seem to do well so i think i should get some breaks for the small, tight, narrow track at TQ.

IslandBwoy:

If you go to the link below you can click and get the JPEG for each page and then paste them into Microsoft Word.

I have asked about the broken links myself and have not heard a response.

If AdrianM or PW are reading, a single PDF would be great!
