Remarks – Enjoying a very strong showing here at the Hudy Arena, qualifying 3rd for the A-Main, Michal is again running the same car he ran at Apeldoorn last month when he had his first ETS outing for the season.  The car is fitted new pre production versions of an upcoming optional shock set-up Schumacher will offer called ‘Ultra Short Shocks’. The new offering will comprise of new shock towers front and rear and new short big bore shocks.  In terms of set-up changes for the track, on arrival in Trencin Michal found the car’s Apeldoorn set-up to be over responsive and so they induced more rear roll with a longer rear link.  They also changed to a slightly softer diff with Michal having been competitive ever since.  The other change the Schumacher team made, the UK manufacturer sending two engineers to support their drivers at the ETS season finale, was to mount the body more forward on the car for high speed steering. Apart from the car, Michal’s performance has also been enhanced this weekend by input from his electronics sponsor LRP.  Jürgen Lautenbach was on hand for Thursday’s free practice to assist Michal in creating a speedo setting that gave him a better feeling from the power delivery.
