Took my Mi6evo out yesterday for the 2nd time and I must say this car is awesome! I have the 2mm stiff graphite chassis with the low shock package setup on it and the car is money. One problem I've had with the car is that it strips gears almost every other run. I've checked everything in the drive train and everything seems free...I'm at a loss??? Anybody seen this, have any thoughts?

AJ, check your PMs man been trying to get some info!!!!

Nice one!!! I struggled a bit with the lower shock package and had to lower the front/raise the rear roll centers. The layshaft design and tolerances aren't that great. I hope this gets fixed in the next iteration. I switched my layshaft pulley to use an Awesomatix A800 pulley. I don't get issues with spur gears constantly stripping and I can use other more easily available spur gears too.

WagwanBumba, is the A800 layshaft pulley a direct fit? I have an A800X so I guess I'll give it a try. I did the same thing with the front roll center, works like a charm!!! The car now has a bunch of steering, stays flat and does not traction roll (I'm running on Black CRC carpet...high bite). Working on my setup now to free the car up in the corners to see if I can pick up more corner speed.

I switched to the pro layshaft bearing kit, U7288. They are higher quality bearings with less internal wobble from the bearing. Also when you attach the spur gear to the pulley make sure that it spins true. I've seen some that aren't flat.

Hi all, looking at getting into outdoor club racing this year and am looking at a newly built MI6 on classifieds. I notice Schumacher don't list it on their site, only the MI6 Evo. Are parts interchangeable between the two? Is there Mi6 still competitive? Any tips or parts should look into?

The Mi6 and Mi6Evo are quite similar and share a majority of parts... the Evo is a refinement if you like..

From memory the MI6 EVO has a revised chassis, arms and a couple of other minor changes. I run an Mi6 and feel it is still competitive against other cars. For a short while there was an Mi6 to Mi6 Evo conversion kit but i have not seen them for a while. . The parts are listed on the Schumy website in the Vintage car parts section here----> ( Mi6 ) and parts support is very good, the factory still offer parts support way back past the Mi4LP - so more than ten years! This is one the reasons why i prefer to run Schumacher, their support to their customers is very good. i see you are based in Aussie - Action RC used to supply some onroad stuff in Brisbane - Campbell town hobbies do schumy stuff but i am not sure if they do onroad - i have had good service form both UK and USA based retailers - usually takes 7 - 10 days for cheap postage to get to NZ..

The ultra short shocks fit the Mi6 and is meant to deliver a noticeable lap time reduction - this will be my next upgrade. I found good pace increase form fitting the ultra low 46mm front arm mount (lowers front roll centre) with the narrow hex's. I run on very low traction asphalt in 13.5 blinky.

What class and surface are you running on (outdoor asphalt low or high grip...? This will assist us to share some insight into setup and any parts you need.

HTH

I have not seen one of those rear braces. I'm not sure who makes it.
