Writing in english is way cooler than in boring norwegian!

OK, but tell me the truth about the quality of the Schumacher cars right now!

Is it good or bad???

Totally agree as to Losi, those cars are "no brainers"! Just works!

Guys, what about those new ugly bugly shells (Bulldog / Punisher)? Like or dislike? Any significant performance gain?

Personally they make me sick!

Going AE this year as well. Since Im getting great support by both Magne and Ketil it would be stupid to change brand.

Regarding the new styled bodies I will try Proline Bulldog on the B44. With a kick-ass paint job it might turn out allright
Just looks silly on the B4 though..

Will Ketil focus more on 1:10 again? Or is he stuck in 1:8?

Well.. He said after the 2010 Nats that he wouldn't ever drive 1/8th again.. Hopefully thats true
But his focus will be at 1/10th this year

Cool! It'd be great to have him back where he belongs!

I will be following the cab-forward trend with a little twist, and this is how I envision my shell this year:

(Thank you janus_77 for letting me "steal" your picture) I have added a classic 70's VW drag race paint scheme

It's all up to the paint on those bastards. The Bulldog looks awful nomatter what you do to it, while the Punisher can be alright. I've given KG Larry the task of making them look good for me.

I'll agree to that! The Bulldog is totally a lost case...

Get pics posted when you get them!

I just might be able to finish this project before the springs comes, though:

Writing in english is the proper way to communicate on this forum I think.

I`ve had the Cougar SV, the car is okay, but I have had other cars that worked way better. IMO you can get the car fast, but you need to be good at setup... i think of myself as rather good at understanding setup, but could not figure out the SV....but I didnt give it to much time eiter..

Also had issues with coating inside BB-shocks came off, turnbuckels bent, tie-rod broke...

Hop this helps

Er ikke det egentlig litt teit selv om det er litt gøy?
Veeeelig gøy

I don't think I will ever forget the Nordics in Radøy, when you ended up with the homemade midmotored Tamiyosho 201X instead of the Schumacher... You were so puzzled

I must admit I've really grown up. When I was a touring car racer(blaaargh), it was car of the week, now I don't want to change my XXX-CR... Ever:P

I feel I've really unlocked a lot of potential in it this winter, but there is still some more. The most funny part? I haven't changed the setup since the first indoor race. All I've done is practice, test some tires, and go back from a gear diff to a ball diff.

Both Ole Steen and Dave-Ass can be quoted saying "smoooooth" while driving my car:P

If the 22 is the revolution it looks to be, my underwear will be soiled every practice day....

puzzled is an understatment...I could not belive that my home made car was 0,4 sec faster than cougar SV...and that was when it was pooring down rain!!
Got many complements on the home made tamiya from sweedish and finish driver though...that was cool.
