Support for the mi3.5 should continue plus a lot of the mi4 stuff can be used on it.

Default Spool endfloat

Can someone please explain what this is?
I am new to onroad and the manual states to shim the diff to adjust endfloat of spool.

Does this relate to the position of the belt on the spool?
I have an MI3.5

It means the side to side play of the spool.

We just received word that Schumacher USA will be closing, leaving all the sales and distribution to the UK/Europe office. So don’t panic if you are a big Schumacher fan, you can still get your vehicles and parts from the official Schumacher Racing site.

Schumacher has been making some waves this year. Lots of new product coming out, sounds like they are looking to cut costs as they do their best to get the product out there this year.

We have a few friends in the USA office, so best wishes to all those guys that they find a new place to call home soon.

LiPo Brushless no issue. Ran a Mi3 last year with a brushless and a 5000 IP pack and everything fit just fine. It is tape in for best results.

Mine balanced with not too much weight, still a very good car.
Good Luck!

hey guys, i just bought a mi3.5 pro version from a guy at my hobby shop for $120...he works there and races also...he said he couldn't get the car to transition the way he liked...could that be because of the spool ? would a one way or diff help or is it just operator error ?

Any help is appreciated,
