I have setups for the Mi1, but I rather hold off on setups for the Mi2 for just a little longer.

Although, I think we will run oils in the 30 to 50wt range with 14 to 20lb springs for rubber tire and 20 to 35lb springs for foam tire on the Mi2.

AN - I have just sprayed one, but haven't had the chance to try it out yet. By looks alone it looks very similar to the Protoform Stratus 2.

It has a bigger lip at the bottom of the front end (like the Mazda 6 and the Protoform Alpha) and the whole nose just looks like it will give more agressive steering. I know I will be running one in electric and gas. Just my 2 Cents.

Default Mi2 (should be called "works edition")

I just have to say that in my time racing touring cars, I have never seen a more complete and well designed kit. Almost all the upgrades you would have had to buy in the past come in the kit already. As far as durability, Paul hit a pipe really hard on power and sheared off an aluminum diff half (locked diff or spool) and nothing else was damaged on the car. This hit would have completely trashed any other car. The guys at Schumacher really did their homework on this bad boy. Looking at this car in pictures does not do it justice by a long shot. It is definatly their best effort by far. I cannot wait to get mine. Nice run at the regionals fellas.

The latest report from Schumacher:

The production run is set for "mid" January and then there is normally a 1-2 week shipping period following that.

Lets just say that most everything in England (suppliers) shuts down during the holidays and suppliers don't do favors...LOL

I had a weekend full of X-mass events, so I didn't get to race

It's going to happen!

PW- I'm waiting for my new purple friend. I think I'll name her Tessa.....LOL Merry X-mas to you and your family. I ran mod foam last weekend and had some fun in this class for once. A few of us are thinking of going to the carpet nats in March but it all depends on how soon the car comes out. I don't want to hit the race with nearly no time on the car. If I do go will you be at this race?

Hey Clint....I'm sure Tessa will do everything to makeup for her delay Yeah, foams are a blast to drive on!

Yes, we will be at the carpet nats and everyone will most certainly have the cars at least a month before the race.

Hey Bob....The car is still scheduled for January, but it's just a matter of when in January....Should be no problems for the Carpet Nats unless of course we sell out

Happy Holidays to all
