Another revolutionary idea to have come from the race pedigree company out of Northampton UK ~ Schumacher.
Some of the original ideas they've incorporated in this car was their Belt transmission, Ball Diffs, Lay down shocks (Fronts) All their original designs. Always in awe racing alongside these cars with my gold tub RC10's. On paper it was awesome, on track however was a bit of a different story. The front suspension was a little too hyper active and didn't really provide a stable car and that's why they switched it over to upright suspension in a short span of time to make it more competitive, also the plastic telescoping driveshafts were swapped out (can't remember what is was called) but it was part aluminum, reason being was that it was affecting car's handling under acceleration . One thing was certainly a hit, was their belt drive system in the 2wd, it sounded so much quitter and what I imagine to be a little more efficient than the conventional gear system especially when running 1400mah Sanyo SCR's or even the 1700 Sanyo SCE's (remember them?) lasting 5 mins with pace was always a tricky business.
