New car pics look good...cant wait to see one in person. PW...Is there a waiting list forming?? I'd like to be on it if there is...

One question...that A-arm looks pretty fragile...reminiscent of the Yok arms a few years ago that would break if you got close to a wall...I'm sure testing will tell, but let's not forget the lessons of the past...

Cheers...Mark

If your chassis scrapes on the track, and there's no one around to hear it, does it make any sound?

rcshark, don't you think 30 wt to 90 wt is a bit of a drastic change??? Maybe try 40 or 50 first man.

SHARK- I'm not trying to be funny here, but how much time do you spend on top of the berms/bourds at your local track? They can cause scrapes as well.

From what I am hearing testing on the new sedan is going A+ great! Can't wait, this car is going to be the best kit that Schumacher has ever produced. They are trying not to overlook anything. Please feel free to tell me or any other Schumacher ofiliated(spelling lol) driver any questions.

Definatley would like to see threaded shock bodies included in the kit. Its tough to spend $250+ on a kit and then have to spend another $40-50 on shock bodies. Especially when most of the other top tourers come with them. Also would like to see non posi screws, maybe some hex head screws would be nice. I am really excited about the new car and have heard a lot of good things during its testing so I cant wait to pick one up!

Threaded shocks will make their way into the new kit

Torx screws will also be included in the kit...A little secret about torx screws, 2mm hex wrench fit right in...hehehe

Please please please include some proper sway-bars in the kit, or at least mounting points for ones.

This new car definately sounds interesting. I believe a lot of parts like one way diff etc. from the Mission will fit?

Yep, sway bars got my vote too.

Swaybars will have new mounting and the arms have a molded pivot-ball in them for the ball-cup
