We'll see what happens, but I don't think it will be much different from mi3.

Good luck schumacher!!


The car looks awesome!

God help us all if our only choices in this hobby are XRay and Losi.

Err, no, get the Schumacher
No-one runs Losi

It has run at Cotwolds in the UK (A national venue for later this year) against a lot of other very good drivers and aparently won comfortably.

It has to be said, the support online from the national guys is great, despite only being with Schumacher for a short period they have an 'ask us' style section on the UK site which is quite busy and the pro-stock guys are always answering questions as well.

All I remember is my Mi3 being very competitive at Frederick and had no problems going fast with it. Most people buy a new car and think they will be fast the 1st week or two and if not sell it. Most don't give a car enough time to dial it in.

Its easy to just by an Xray or Losi and get a setup your buddies use to make it work or one could go and buy something different and actually learn how to setup the car without copying everyone else and learn nothing.

Think of moment of inertia and the flywheel effect,with off and on throttle reponse, then compare a brushless rotor and a brushed arm. I said that a rotor would be less likely to effect this clamp than a brushed motor would. Never the less I'm sure Shumacher has it all worked out.

VERY good words myfriend.
A hater is going to be a hater. Just face it. I like cars like these and all the ones out now. Even vintage. people who make different type of layout cars and different unique cars(mi4) and RC cars all togther are just COOL.

I like when these companys EXPAND the choices in this hobby. I could've bought a Losi, I could've bought an Xray. But I didn't wanna be like everyone else I know. So I bought another make, USED and I'm LEARNING.

It looks cool, but damn is that top deck funkay. With it being angled that way, how would it "flex" differently? It seems as if there would be more flex in the rear than in the front due to the angle, but maybe i'm over thinking things. Also, will the "clamp" be able to clamp down on smaller brushed motors (i'm thinking like stock motors)? maybe its just me, but it seems limited to brushless, which isn't neccesarily a bad thing.

I'm digging the fact that the motor can be moved inwards, and as said before, the bulkheads are damn sexy.
