Man you guys don't give up. Give it a rest. This forum was to talk about Schumacher products, not how Joe Schmo is upset because he doesnt have his car yet, or how many times someone can ask the same question over and over again. The cars will be here when they get here.

As far as people prepaying for their cars........ Fast Track requires NO ONE to prepay for their car. We have had people that have insisted on paying up front. In no way shape or form did we or will we ever require someone to prepay for a preorder end of story.

Now can we please get back to what this forum was made for.......

maybe you have ordered your mi3 from uk or anywhere else...or you are not interested in this product, but please give the racers who still havn't got their kits a place to talk about their problems!!
sorry, but it is crazy enough that usa is getting schumacher products 2 weeks later then all other countries!!!!!!!

They haven't reached the final stage of this yet(acceptance) like myself and dawgmeat.

They'll get there...or the kits will get to them...one of those two things will eventually happen.

The issue is people like yourself asking the same questions over and over again when they have already been answered twenty times before. I am VERY interested in this product. I own a hobby store and happen to sell ALOT of Schumacher parts and kits so obviously i would have a good interest in the release date. Once again their is nothing wrong with asking a question. But how many times do we need to ask the same one over and over again. Lets get back to what this thread was made for........

Then again with extra steering the new car produces this might not be a bad thing either. Will be experimenting alot with that.

Man, I hear you, but I have to tell you in all honesty, from experiencethat things aren't going to get back to normal until "it" happens. And we all know what "it" is.

This is how it works
-people are confused...and ask for info
-people are upset...and demand answers
-people eventually accept that its out of their control and just try to chill

But for everyone who makes it to that final stage, theres going to be someone just visiting the thread who will start all the stuff over.

As much as we'd all love this to be the Schumacher thread of old, its just not going to normalize around here until "it" happens.

All I hope for is that for those people who have already reached the "acceptance" stage, that they not be so hard on people who haven't gotten there yet. No body is coming here intentionally to start trouble. Their just frustrated. And everyone deals with frustration differently.

We have a couple different tracks in our area, and the traction differs at all of them. Hell, sometimes it changes as the day goes on!

I'm just happy that we'll be able to change rear toe without having to buy optional suspension blocks!

Imagine how frustrating it is for PW and Adrian. They are between a rock and hard place and no way out til kits get here. Man I bet when its all done PW will look like Hulk Hogan in his prime.

That's supouse to be like that?
Or can we do someting to fix that?

Thanks
That shouldn't matter where the droop screws contact. There is never stress on that contact point when youre running so you're droop will not change. I guess there might be stress there if your car is setup poorly and the springs are super preloaded , but that's a different issue . The only stress there should be on the droop screw contact point is the weight of the arm.

The chassis is way lighter than most with all the cutouts, yet the car is still pretty stiff. I see a lot of potential for it being super stiff for foam tires with a carpet chassis and topdeck .

I think you made a mistake because Dallas is the only good team to get knocked off I think even the Magic would have knocked off the Heat

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 feel it works like changing your Roll center
