IF the guys are posting while at work they are loosing time getting are stuff ready to ship.

Internet is good and bad all at the same time.
Its part of customer service now a days. When you buy something and dont get it on time or as advertised, you call the company and ask, they give you answers as to why there's a delay. Samething here...SchumacherUSA's PW and Adrian are awesome with customer service- by far the best I've witnessed, and we expect answers. They have fought on our behalf to get those answers and have done a good job of telling us what's going on with our kits. The Pblm is that's its been a these pesky parts and QC issues that keep delaying the fun times and we havent heard the latest news untill today that its actually till an ETA of 5/17 that kits should be in, this time, if all goes well.

To my knowledge no one is out any money for these cars because Schumacher will not take payment in advance and if they did I had mine on order before a part number was ever made up for the car back January. Also was going to pay this week and even though my order is very large and Schumacher could get a nice amount of money they still did not take my payment so to me no one should be out any money for a product they didn't receive.

I don't think they really need to post too many answers unless they took everyones money and then didn't produce a car. Now if they took money from some that would be a totally different story.

Give it up man...

-If your not happy about the delays....your wrong.
-If you want to know whats up with a kit...your wrong
-If don't constantly rant "it'll be worth it"....your wrong
-If you are unhappy in anyway about this...then it means you hate PW and Adrian...

Aint much to do but accept it, try to laugh it off, and chill out...

how many of you got your Mi3 from the LHS in the Uk?




It would appear most....

Interesting that most US LHS's took the money on advanced orders, where UK shops take the order and perhaps a deposit, but don't take the money until you are sent the kit.

Apex got the kits in last Friday and phoned me to see if I wanted to collect it. The big brown delivery boxes from Schumacher were still in the shop when I went in.

So let me ask, if the delay is due to faulty bulkheads then why did the LHS sell the Mi3 in the UK

Some of us have paid in advance for the car. I'm not saying that means Schumacher 'owes' us any answers. Just letting you know that some of us have paid.

I was reading over on the Schumacher boards(a post that dawgmeat just posted before me ) that a lot of UK shops don't take pre-pay or only take partial pay. Maybe thats what US shops will start to do. Cause I'm sure they don't like getting calls for updates anymore than SchUSA does. Delays like this are a stess on everybody, I realise that and nobody wants them to happen.

My only beef is when guys come on here and try to convice people they should be happy about it or shut up...

Thats my only beef...

A N Y W A Y......I did actually have a question when I came to the thread, I just forgot in the middle of all that non-sense...

Can somebody explain what the benefits are to running the diffs lower. I've heared some people talking about it, but there seemed to be confusion as to what exactly this does for handling or drivetrain efficeincy.

Thanks in advance.

I'm still testing this as well. I've always been told lower diffs are more traction, but we have found the diff in the higher position is more traction on either end

Wow I feel bad for guys that have to prepay their local shop for kits. All of are shops around this area never require customers to do this unless they want to.

No one wants delays especially Schumacher. Delays not only cost money but cause greif for them and awaiting customers. I think they are truely trying to get the best possible product to us the consumer. I think we can all agree on that.

Come on Starling, I already answered this

Like Darkseid said, we all hate it and there is NOTHING that can be done by posting here or anywhere.

I think it's different for each car because of diff placement in relation to c/g, r/c, etc.
