Adrian or PW:

I remember you guys mentioning that we would have to use an 'on servo' servo saver. I was just gazing at the exploded diagram again, and was wondering if the kit will include that servo saver pictured in the diagram. (U2882) Or will we have to provide our own?

Also, any chance you guys will have the Mi3 manual on your site before the car is released? You know, just for some early build planning and something to look at...

is going?
I bet the same thoughts were around when some motorcycles first started appearing with support on only one side at the rear.

The kit will come with the U2882 servo saver and U2231 direct servo arms. What you run depends on if you crash a lot and how stout your servo is.

The instruction are not finalized and will not be available until the car is released. Be prepared for an all new look in the manual. I have seen drafts of the manual and it looks super nice!

http://www.cannondale.com/suspension/07/[/That was an awesome setup. Rode a few of them from my buddies bike shop as he is a huge Cannondale dealer. They worked great with very little fork flex.

Let me give you guys a little insight on how the Mi3 drive this weekend. AMAZING!!!, was the word of the week. The car had the traction of an MI2EC but with way....way...way more steering!!!! The first pack on the track with the car and you can feel the difference not only in how the car felt, but in the all new steering system implemented into the car. The Reedy race and the On-Road Nats will be very interesting.

Talking Mi3 Release For Late April?

Thanks Alex...but right now some of us are very, very depressed at the supposed news that the Mi3 release has been delayed another month or so due to parts not passing QC. What's worse is that we didnt even find out from our Schumacher USA techs and drivers on this thread...why? Can you please fill us in on what is really going on, please. And if you are not sure, then can you please find out from someone who really knows or or have them post some explanation concerning the delay reports, and their reasons, and what is going to happen next...PLEASE...

What you mean is, reword the post Adrian made on the prior page.... so it has the same meaning with fewer or more words, fewer syllables, maybe in a poem, or another language..... Get to it Adrian!

Let me make something clear; this isn't the offical Schumacher thread and we do our best to answer questions about our product on this thread. I would venture to say we are the most active manufacture on this forum answering questions honestly and not giving BS answers like 2 more weeks!

Imagine that, you had to find out about Schumacher news from the Schumacher website Heck, most companies force you to only read there message board on their own website

Lastly; it's not anyones business to know why there is delays. Once again, we are probably the only company that actually gives you that type of inside info when the questions arise.


Congrats to Aaron Young for another dominating performance with his Mi2EC on the West Coast winning the 2007 Carpet Region 12 Race

You lot over the water seem to have more info whats going on than we do in the UK.

Certainly it seems the staff that come on this forum are helpfull. Were all waiting for our new cars but its better we get something that correct not slapped together.
