    It is a good parking lot basher. I would not reccomend it as a first car for a newbee tooo fast.

    RE: schumacher fusion 28

    Yep its an awsome car..... i have one my self..... and this is the 1st car that i bought and i have been replacing broken parts since day one..... since then i have managed to reduce the throttle to only 15% just to get used to it..... i wish i knoew at the time of purchase.... on the smooth concrete floor the car is stupidly uncontlrolably fast... and breaks traction.... but in *****erman its very quick.... but scratches the crap out of the bottomplate....

    RE: schumacher fusion 28

    To fit 1/8 scale foam tires on your Fusion you will need some adapters. You can get the 1/8 scale adapters from www.WolfpackRadicals.com Just go to his website click on questions and send him an email telling him what you want.

    Give these guys a try Schumacher Racing Products 6302 Benjamin Road Suite 404 Tampa Florida. splcrazy if you have access to a Nitro TC-3 just drop a big block in it!! Have you looked at any of Brent Davis videos of his TC-3 with a big block???? Incredible speed and handling but you have to fabricate the parts yourself.

    RE: schumacher fusion 28

    from what i heard the schumacher fusion .28 is a car that is only good for straight line performance and the suspension setup Sucks.. i have seen them driving around in this parkin lot b4 and they were going straight one way and straight back the next way.lol.

    RE: schumacher fusion 28

    No car is going to handle at its peak without you setting it up for the surface area you are running on. I own 3 Fusions and they DO HANDLE, after you set them up. To get the Fusion to handle you need a wide softer shore rear tire possibly lighter rear shock oil and spring , set camber, toe-in , toe -out, droop etc, etc.

    you said that you have ran 6 tanks through it.. and then you said only half of that was break in.. are you sayin you broke it in with only 3 tanks? you cant do that. lol.

    RE: schumacher fusion 28

    Why can you do that....? when a lot of hobby shops i have spoken to said that you should let it idle through one tank... and then 2nd tank just drive it around with only 1/4 of throttle and then on 3rd tank you can increase the throttle to about 2/3..... thats the process you should og through.... Just like when you buy a brand new car, do you just go out and give it a full throttle straight out of the showroom? you got to be stupid enought to do that...... all you have to do is follow the manufacturers instructions and you cant go wrong...

    thats a good site , but for some reason on the USA section they dont sell to australia for some reason , only the UK section of that site im able to buy from them , i even found out my local hobby shop buys from this site in the UK section , my local hobby shop wants $575 australian dollar for a KIT version i dont know its not a bad price , i could buy from that site also but would cost me over $600 plus shipping , anyway my local hobby shop said he's getting his shippment next weekend so i will check it out when they arrive .

    Depending on the method, yeh, 3 tanks is more than enough for heat cycle method. Doesn't change the time it takes, just uses less fuel.
