Why'd you choose a schumacher over an Xray? Just out of interest.
Schumacher = Cheap and Simple!
Also my buddy is driving an "old" Mission and "old" 705. I help him with his 705 and he helps me with my MI2.

Well, as usual, luck and driver skills will always let you down again ! Anyway, I was actually very satisfied with my 710. The car was fantastic on a tight infield / technical and a high speed straight with a sweeper hook at the end of the track. Too much traffic and the solid front was very useful. When tire selection was right, the car was very responsive ! Did not change my car setup at all from the previous outings on other tracks. Just played a little (plus minus 5 minute turns) on the rear diff screw. I just changed tires using 35 shore front and 37 shore rear or 37 shore front and 40 rear. Tire wear was the same front and rear !

Funny thing is the colour reacts differently to light source... If you look at it from a 90 angle it's GREEN, but diagonally it's BLUE....


Oh well...
