Same here. The waiting sucks, but its nice to know everythings paid for and all you have to do when the car actually comes is buy some essential spares.

One thing I will say is we will have more Schumacher cars at the Express race this year than ever before. At least 10 or more which compared to I think 2 last year, me and Steve and then non as we where rained out the first weekend. We didn't make it back for the rain date.

Solara-You are going to want a final drive between a 7.5 to 8 depending on the layout.

Start out with a 29t and go from there. That puts you at 7.324 and should be a good starting point for that sized track. I track I'm running at now is a similar size, but of course it always depends on the layout. But you should be fine starting with a 29t. If you're running like a 767 brush you could try starting at a 30t, but if you're running F-brushes they usually produce more rpm so we end up gearing down .5-1t. Hope this helps .

I'm not sure if all of you guys have noticed this, but the Mi3 is actually cheaper than the Mi2 EC . That's good news. I just realized that about a week ago. That also puts the car very competitively priced with other pro level sedans and cheaper than many.

in a word, awesome. it's so adjustable that we'll be able to do anything with it setup-wise. and the bulkhead design builds up stiff, so we won't need anything over 2.5mm for a chassis. it should also have some other revisions that will make it a winner on the rug.

hang in there.

Just wanted to let you guys know ....just got off the phone with Aaron Young, he's TQ at the region 12 carpet champs by one lap ...with an "old school" MI2, and "old school" brushed motor (they're running brushless 4300 w/brushed 19T). ...although that's because I couldn't make it to the reg 12 ...bit that's a whole 'nother story
