I also tested with 5 cell and brushless( yeah brushless) and i thought it was amazingly fast.
Alex: what's up bro, its Yohan...you were at Coral Springs this past Sunday, and the Mi3 was working nicely...the track was a bit dirty, and traction was average, and the Mi3 was handling very well- lots os sterring and corner speed...you did have some esc issues- did you sort them out?

Brushless: you're hooked. You will be very happy with it- did you go LRP or Novak? I am telling you will not go back to brushed...now next time you run at Coral Springs you'll be able to spend more time running at the track and working on car set up instead of working on those pesky old brushed motors...you'll see a big differece...let us know when you'll come back to Coral Springs.

Later and Good luck at the Reedy race

I will be at CS this Sunday. I did try the Novak brushless system and I was very impressed. Doesnt mean I will run it at the Reedy race, but for now, I will test with it.

My source tells me: The lastest report from the UK is that the bulkheads for the Mi3 for the first batch of pre-order kits and the team driver kits are not up to spec 100%. The kits are all packed and ready to ship out from the UK, but they are awaiting the new 100% correct bulkheads to come in this week. Once they come in late this week or early next week, they are thrown in the boxes and sent out to the US by mid to end of next week(May 6-13), and should arrive by the end of the week of May 13-20th. Pre-orders should be shipped and arriving the week of the Reedy race, May 20-27. Again, this is if everything goes as planned, and no further QC failures or delays. Realistically we are looking at another 2 weeks before MI3 we get our new toys....I'd be great if we could get an official statement from Shchumacher on this or somekind of clarification or confirmation...

the bulk head issue is getting old, ? for the UK have you had problems with your bulkheads, maybe the US gave their whole allotment to their 25-100% spondored drivers or RROC racers

Wow, that was a quick post! I think I just spoke with you on the phone letting you know what was going on. For the most part the post is accurate, but let me clarify a few things. Let me also go on record though that it's very disrespectful to call for info and then take it straight to online forums and get it wrong.

Kits were delayed another week because 2/3 of the production bulkheads failed QC. The only kits that have pre-production bulkheads would be "Team Drivers"! ALL pre-orders that have been filled in the UK have proper bulkheads out of the 1/3 that were correct.

We are also becoming very busy right now and don't have time to frequent the boards as much, so easy up on the offical demands publicly!!! Please call for updates and then KEEP IT to your self!!!!!

Hey guys,

Ease up a bit. Rumors are just that. If Paul had any info about the kits being delayed, he would have put it out. Sponsored drivers dont have it any better. Only people attending the Reedy race got thier cars early. Many of us are waiting patiently just like you. Hopefully we will all get them soon

Like yourself I'm in the navy also, maybe I have skills mayby not, maybe i can't make around for the RROC at that time frame My money spends the same way like everyone else on this forum, so if Joe Blow who sucks but is going to the RROC gets his car before anybody else

Come on guys. Just relax. Things happen. Team Drivers who are going to the Reedy Race got cars with bulkheads on them that didn't pass QC so we could get them on the track for one of the biggest races of the year. The issue that kept them from passing QC doesn't effect the cars performance, but you just have to be really careful while working on the car. That's the only reason we have these cars. If this were 3 months ago and there was no rush for us to get ready for Reedy, we would be getting cars at the same time as everyone else. There's no preferential treatment going on here. I'd hate to see what was posted on the Losi thread if this is how people react to a couple of delays. Especially delays that are to ensure that the customer gets a product that isn't going to have any major problems from the box.

From first pics to production to kits hitting the shelf Schumacher has easily been the fastest of all. The delays they have are minor. I don't mind the wait knowing how nice the product I receive will be when I get it.

Hey Kling is patiently breaking his MI2 EC until his new car arrives.
