Hey,

Out of curiousity, Is the Schumacher Mission SST still competative? I might have the opportunity to get one dirt cheap. I'm gonna do some pavement this year (I've been a carpet guy the last year and a half) and am either gonna get a real cheap TC or a new bottom plate for my XRay.

BTW: Is it possible to slap Mi2 suspension on the old car?

I'm pretty sure the MI2 suspension is not a direct fit to the Mission SST. You can find PW's set-up for the Mission on thier website. That will get that car competitive.

Yes like donnie said it may be a contender for you with PW set up. That car can take some good abuse!

You can slap the Mi2 suspension on the SST provided you have the new upper and lower chassis of the Mi2 along with the Mi2 drivetrain and shock towers!!

Some guys still swear that the SST 99 is still the best Schuie car ever!!

Not a problem. I'm glad it worked for you. We do use the rear wheelbase adjustment just as you described quite often.
Yeah Paul. That setup pretty well at TQ (sealed, medium bite). XXX's car looked real good and was stuck to all hell and maybe even too stuck. ON the other had i ran 19T and the car was a little free'er than XXX"S. I'm not sure if that was just do to the little bit of extra power or if it was because i didnt move my ball cups on the shock mounts as he described.

Would you recommend moveing that ballcup in most cases where the care become a tad bit loose or would you go with something else? My car was pushy and it was harder to make corners if I didnt attack them just right so i didnt want to add more rear traction and thus didnt move my ball cups. What would you have recommended in my case.

Thanks,
M.I. JEDI

Default Mission1 problem...

Hey guys...I'm working on setting up my Mission for carpet again, and when I have my front shock set up in the outside holes on the arms, I've got a couple of MM of ride height in front, and I've got the shock adjusting collars bottomed... do I need a special lower tower or something or ???

This could be a couple of things:

Short springs require a spring clip
There is a front and rear tower on the Mission, make sure the tower without the 2 small notches is in the front
