We got it figured out today. He didn't notice that his invoice said "backorders don't ship automatically". So we were just kinda sitting back waiting for something that wasn't coming.

So he got my stuff ordered for me.

Hopefully the Mi3 will be like my TA05. Where I order parts when I get the car, and never have to use them.<fingers crossed>

Went to 301 Raceway today to get ready for the Full Throttle Race. My car is absolutely fabulous in stock! I still have some things I want to try, so if the car is good during the race, I'll be sure and post my setup. I think Regal and I will be the only schuie's there. Wish us luck!

I have to say congrats to the Schumacher team for their great performance at the Reedy Race!!!!!

with a relatively small team....those guys had a great new car and that is a big part of why they did so well....

I forsee Schumacher selling alot of cars this summer

I'll be building up my MI3 a little bit this week.
My first impressions;
1. Really like the look of the instructions- looks like a lot of work was put into this.
2. Wish the ball studs were a little more up to date- smaller foot print and with a hex wrench opening- looks like HPI's are a direct fit though. http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGNX3&P=7
3. The carbon bits are works of art!
4. Wheel hexes use orings- blah

Overall quality looks superb compared to the price of what other kits are going for. This is my 4th Schumacher I've owned and boy have they come a long way since the days of the Storm

On the HPI ballstuds, is the height of the ball exactly the same as the Schumacher ballstuds?

Guess they could be a tuning option, but anyone who uses them should remember that they will change the cars setup.

Ran my MI3 outdoors today for the 1st time. I normally run indoor asphalt with tons of traction.

Ran the FullThrottle Motorsports race today on a nice outdoor asphalt track. I ended up running 19T and started with my stock setup that I use at the indoor track. Man the car was really good. Didn't change too much at all abd the the car just got better each run. It was so easy to drive it was like running a stock motor. Had a great day and qualified 3rd in the A but the main was brutal. My car was beat around like in a demo derby.

Overall the car was great and I was very pleased on how great it worked for me.

I also ran at the Full Throttle Race, I ran stock and my car was money!!
The car was easy to drive and held its settings/tweek all day. I got to play around with my setup and the car got better each time I ran it. I qualified
5th in the "A" and ended up with 3rd. I'm really looking forward to the eXpress race at Jackson next week
