Yeah, the exchange rate for Dollars to GBP hit 2.00 last week. This is a great time for English tourist to visit the US. We are as cheap to visit as some 3rd world countries.

Wow!!! That's more than our USD-CND exchange rate! If you're in the UK, you can probably wait an order a kit from the US and after taxes and shipping you probably still end up saving money.

I can't really tell from the picture. Is it that you have two left bulkheads?

You should be able to pull those pins out and get them on the correct sides. I havent built mine yet, but I'm pretty sure they're both supposed to be facing out?

Just got my package, off to the track . I'll get pics up when it's done.

that's what I thought, but I wasn't sure...

That sucks for Skiddins!!!
You now have to wait on another bulkhead before you can get your car up and running!

Talking ETA May 10th

Fasttrack Hobbies has updated the ETA date for the Mi3's for May 10th...that's almost 2 weeks from now...Most likely Shumacher UK has will be shipping in the next week. Supposedly, they are shipping only about 20% of pre-orders in the first batch. Those that pre-ordered will get their kits in the order they came/paid. The 2nd batch will follow some weeks after, to complete all pre-orders pending. Hopefully we'll get in the first batch!!! But again, it's estimates...

About the car: where are MI3 set ups from PW and Alex Lopez from the FSEARA races? Will need some good set-up suggestions for Florida outdoor tracks...where are some set-up guys?

Also, how in the world did you manage to get the bulk heads so close to each other, and still have enough space for the center pulleys and belts to fit and work so close and tight...its perfect! It just seems that this allows the motor and electronics side to be moved 4-5mm further in, and give the car better over all balance...I dont think it can get closer than this....

Wow, I didn't expect that. When I first saw those pins, I thought for sure they would be press fitted into the holes while we were assembling the kits. Didn't think they would be unique Left and Right bulkheads seperately.

Each Bulkhead is unique so that it fits in and around all the other components on the chassis and is compatible with Orions Pt. Lipo.

Default Don't laugh(SST Pro)

Hey all. I've been into nitro and Electric off-road for a few years now. I tried on-road last year(demo day) and really liked it. Didn't have much luck with the car I tried.(needed some TLC) Anyways a bought a mint sst pro just before that and have yet to use it. I was told it was set-up for carpet. So my questions are how well it will work in novice 27t(medium skills) against newer stuff and whats a good starter set-up? The track is in kamloops and is a good size.fast and flowing but i can't compare it to anything else so I'm not sure. Sorry if these questions were asked 4 of 5 years ago,just would rather not read all 300 or 400 pages. Thanks, Dan.
