Go back through the last few pages of the thread and you'll find a few people who are using the Exotek chassis. Everyone seems to like it and I'll be one of them soon. I just got an MI3.5 myself and the Exotek is on the Xmas list (or sooner if the wife doesnt notice ) Can't help with the setup...barely looked at the manual yet.

Do like I do, ask the company to mark in big letters "REPLACEMENT PARTS".

Works everytime and I've been married 37 years.

I think all the rc companies should get shipping boxes from Bed,Bath and Beyond !!! On the other hand..I'll have to start stocking up on girly soap or something just to cover my butt when she sees the box.

Kudos to both Shawn and Adam. I've called them twice to get some questions answered and both were great. A newbie to Schumacher appreciates the answers and the fact you were both easily accessible. And just to solve any issues with you two feeling glorified !!....."There is no guarantee, written or implied, that any future statements regarding the positive attributes of any Schumacher USA employees will be made. Any employee showing signs of a hightened ego will be promptly beaten and flogged."

You could. But it would probably be cheaper to just buy a new car

One of my team guys did it, and yes you can, but all of the most expensive parts of the car need to be purchased and it was within $50 of buying a brand new car

It's Newbie day so another quick question. On the MI3.5, is there a toe angle built in to the rear arms? Also, the manual states a change of .60 degrees of toe for each .50 spacer used. Is that .10 difference that critical or do we just round things out to even numbers ie: assuming 1 degree built in to arms with 0 degree hubs....add .50 shim to inboard rear = 1.5 degrees total toe in ??

Regarding front inboard toe...when would it be adviseable to change inboard toe vs. outboard toe only. All my previous cars only adjusted toe via turnbuckles. Isn't changing inboard toe also affecting castor ?
