well.. mor n more ppl are losing interests in schumacher products.. especially after seein the new fusion which has very little changes done to it. so as a result have lost interests in using the forum much at all too.. this is just IMO, i could be wrong.

looks like the electrics schumachers are a big thing tho.. thats good.

The electric revolution I think alot of nitroheads are being tempted by the technology being used in electric cars today, lipos and brushless = almost unlimited  speed and  power. But I still prefer nitro!!

A friend of mine has one of those traxxas trucks that has the lipo system in it and it is really fast but it is uncontrolable and the electronic speed control is always over heating and shuting down after a few high speed runs and when it crashes he has significant damage. I guess what I am saying is the grass always appears greener , lipos ar being hyped but I am sure there maybe hidden problems with them that we have yet to discover.

My friend with the traxxas lipo truck just went out today to get a cooling fan for the speedo so that should take care of the overheating but I still don't trust those batteries yet. I have seen some fires caused by improperly charging these power packs

Lipo's are very dangerous if you don't charge them properly, there have been several posting on the internet. And you don't want to short circuit them either......boom!! One guy over here in the states left his lipo on charge while nhe went to the store when he returned home his house had burned down to the ground.

Mi2Driver...........I didnt know they were sensitive to humidty!! And if you don't know how to use something properly it can be dangerous. Since lipos are new to the rc car scene all the characteristics of the battery are not known yet.


Posted By: mi2driver
Date Posted: 17 December 2007 at 11:10pm
not intirley sure how sensitive to damp they are as the bike racers seem to use them ok ,but ithink theirs are better water proofed.i was intending to run lipo's in an nt1 next year but dont know how water proof the lrp/nosram packs are,and it is right under the fuel tank

They are sensetive to water as it conducts electricity and shorts the layers out resulting in an explosion. You can drop a lipo in fuel and it will be ok as it doesnt conduct electricity.

Because they ban everybody that posts negative comments about Schumacher. Back them into a corner and you get banned.

mi2driver there are some friends of mine who run 1/8 scale onroad who use the lipo packs in their cars and like them. I tried out one in my Outlaw Fusion once gave me a really long runtime but I didnt feel safe with the battery, we race kinda rough I did not think it would hold up.

Hey guys,

haven't been here for ages..... I think a lot of you have hit it on the head No wants to buy a rebadged fusion i know i was looking forward to something new and what a let down... They put a .28 in it which might be a little quicker than the ever reliable TTr they used why dident they get a higher .21 from picco ??? My fusion sits in a box collecting dust, WHY because Schumacher wouldn't even release new parts which would keep us enthused you can only spin a wheel for so long before you get bored....Even my LHS that stocks the Schumacher brand are getting less and less parts in due to no one buying them any more...

My eye brows would have raised if the new fusion had :

*Updated 3 speed and adjustable....
*Maybe a redesign from belts to shafts....
*A kit version so you could at least build your own....
*Bump start compatible so if you wanted the kit you could drop your own engine of choice in....

I purchased my young lad a R12 and now it sits there due to having to wait for parts so after Chrissy it will see ebay most prob and the lad will get a HPI Nitro 3SS due to getting parts on the spot !!!!!

Ok hope every one has a great festive season and enjoy the family time peeps, And remember speed is everything....lol

Happy xmas peeps

As for the post topic

ive given up on schuey they seem to be going backwards. They had the menace and xtr3e the fastest 1:10 outlaw trucks out and everyone knew it.  Even the rcuniverse guys would say this through gritted teeth (then comment they break easy)

Now the xtr3e is gone replace by a riot or was it the rascal??   both to slow for drag racing and running track oval racing.   

And they just dont have the ooooo  factor the xt series  did when it screamed past you on two wheels

and im unsure if the menace is going to be around much longer

 

 

 

As for fusions

i got one it shreads gears if the track you run on has even the tinyest pebbles  the rs4's i run with never seem to have this problem and are pretty quick if you put some cash into them.

 

sooo im gonna sell and get a ct4 or hpi rs4

 

 

rant over haha

 

Have a great xmas and new year   

Im off on the roof with me gun  we be having reindeer for tea tomorrow

I pulled my Fusion out last Aug. after a year of sitting around and the first time I fired it up, I tore my piston and rod to pieces! Ouch! I just didn't get around to buying a new engine. So it sits. My LHS stopped selling Fusions and the parts are drying up. I don't believe that Schumacher marketed the Fusion well enough in my area for it to catch on so in a long way round I think people are losing interest in this car. Too bad, cause I've had fun with mine just tearing around the empty school parking lot!

............ Don't know if people are losing interest in this type of car Joe.  But when this car first came out it was kinda one of a kind now there are soo many copies like the Cen CT-5 , Nitro 4-tec from traxxas and other onroad rtr that people have other brands to choose from besides just Schumacher. But i am sure that the Lipo's and Brushless motor technology will have an effect on the nitro market too, it is alot easier to go faster with electric than nitro.

The topic says "This site is dead"... well i see nothing has changed much!

I completly left the onroad scene for offroad, the way things are going now, doesnt look like I will be doing the onroad thing for a long time to come. How much would my wolfpack car be worth if I sold it as a roller with alum diff mounts, alum upper suspension arms in rear, titanium pivot pins, steel cvds all around, CVEC bb short pipe, enough spare to nearly build another rolling chassis, and some other stuff? I was thinking $400 is the lowest. I want to buy the new kyosho buggy thats coming out around the end of this year, and the fusion is the last thing i have sitting thats not being used. I need to order about $50 worth of bearings and parts and then I can put it back together and ebay it. The st-rr is sooo much fun, i still have yet to break a thing on it and i have been punishing the truck for 3 months now. That RB TM928 is a serious engine, im talking wheelspin at under 1/4th throttle! Ran it in the yard a couple days this week and it tears the grass and everything else up. But i cant run it on the street with the Crimefighters on it now because it would eat those up in a week.

Also have upgraded my controller to the Nomadio Sensor and that thing is definatly money very well spent. It already saved me from my truck running away due to low batteries at least 6 times... thanks to the built in fail safe and 2.4GHz technology built into it. Also can hook up a temp, speed, and battery voltage sensor to the truck, but too lazy to try and get all that stuff calibrated. I dont see much of a point of the voltage sensor because when the batteries are low on the car, the controller tells me they are low... literally says that!

Sure do Nitro, and the engines always run perfect when the temps are in the 60s or 70s, i would say.

Just won a Kyosho 777 WC last night off ebay, will put the RB C6BB7T .21 L2G i was going to put in the fusion, in it when it arrives. Parts for the st-rr will be here by saturday for sure and im back on the scene. Been practicing with it at some tracks but havent raced yet, will have to get into driving the buggy as soon as i get the pipe/manifold, 2 servos, reciever, and tires. Heres some pics of some of my stuff.

A neighbor friend of mine has just recently purchased a Revo 3.3 very fast , very agile truck b ut seem sort of delicate. Have you raced any Revo yet?? How do they hold up at your track??

they do very well once you put some rpm arms, bumpers, wheel hubs on them. Havent seen none on an rc track but a couple friends of mines have them, one with a OS .21 vzb on it and the other with a modded 18tz. Seen the one with the 18tz bashing on a bmx track with me and it did exceptionally well. nothing broke because he had the rpm stuff on it. The guy with the bb revo needs to rebuild the .21 then he can run it at the bmx track.

Long time no hear!  Come on, you've been back on here over a year now without upsetting someone and getting yourself banned again, where's the old controversial Jastel we all know and love?!  Don't tell me you're mellowing in old-age...?

Well I have checked back in from time to time but yeah your right.... maybe I have mellowed. I took some time off from RC in the hope that upon my return there would be something new and exciting from Schumacher and others.... but alas not much has changed... LST2 is still king in my books and Schumacher are still boring and unimaginative.

I'll do my best to get banned more ok.

This site is dead alright! No more posts since june 2008.  Well lets try to fry things up. After 5 years of my R12 from retirement. I rebuild my R12 from rusty car to all new shiny again, lets say like new. And well, I'm looking a way to put a centax clutch to my R12. I did manage to buy a SPMRacing Clutch system on my R12. And seems pretty good. Still got to do some more tests though. But don't know if putting a centax clutch would do better.  SPM Clutch it's the same like the Werks Racing clutch for off roads. I found this clutch right here in this site before but cant find it. Anywayss.. any thoughts for a centax clutch?

Maybe every one is to busy building Monsters to run...lol

Dusted the Fusion off the other day found the engine was tight so fired it up sort of kindled some spirit to maybe strip her down and give it another crack........

Well you're not the only one. Look at my baby all revived back from the dead after five years in the garage getting moisture, dust and Rust and you name it what else. hehehe! Already run it at my local track and can't believe it can still kick some butt compare with XRAY-NT1 and newer RC Models from this era.

Like Anthoop said. It's a two speed car with a legal .12 engine instead of a .21 engine. Legal for local races. It's the little brother from the Fusion .21 or now .28 3 speed. Maybe never heard of it, cuz it has been discontinued from production for some while.  You have to find the car on the internet by seconds hands or some hobby shop that stills has it on their shelves. But the parts are still available and i have two of them tough.   I'll keep using this car until no parts can't be find anymore. Or if Schumacher makes a new model, that right now it's unknown.
