Hey Adam any word of Schumacher making a 2wd offroad buggy? Since they have the new touring coming out and already have a new 4wd offroad buggy done maybe they will do another 2wd buggy.

Of course I'll say it's the best car out there but I haven't always worked at Schumacher and didn't always drive their cars and I can say it's the easiest car I've worked on.

Nothing is final in the MI4 yet, as for the brace on the 3, you won't get any tweak if you use 3mm shims under the brace posts

Where I see the problem with Lypos in most cars is that there is nothing to stop them slidding sideways and out of the car ...usually in a big collision..tape is a better option but messy and sometimes the Lypo still comes out.Maybe a couple of tags or whatever screwed through the chassis would stop this sometimes expensive problem...just my 2cents worth

95% of LiPos have little knobs that stop it sliding out and Schumacher also sell cf rectangles to glue on the batteries if they don't have knobs from the factory
