I like it better too...the previous efforts were copies of his original scheme that he has used for ~3years. On the silver body i made the flames more tribal. It looks mean and the Protoform Mazda 6 is...well what can you say... Dale Epp is THE MAN!

Default Mission question

Greetings!

I am going to be buying a -

http://www.apexmodels.co.uk/product-...cat=kits&id=44

Shortly, having been very, very impressed my the performance of my brothers car straight out of the box. I tried a XXX-S for a season, but the car and me just didn't gel properly, I think it may have been a personality clash or something!

Now, my question is, are there any parts that are likely to break on the car, that I should order at the same time as the kit? Also, is there anything not included in the kit that I might need? (essential tune-ups etc). I also seem to remember my brothers kit did not come with a pinion gear, does that sound right?

Always wanted to drive a Schumacher car, ever since my Optima Mid was trounced by Cat XLS's back in the day.

Thanks for any advice.

Rain

PS. I can't really afford the extra cash for a MI2, or I would get one of those. And I am not a good enough driver to notice much difference anyway I think. I have nearly got to the stage where I can hit EVERY barrier on the way around the track though! *Proud*

Hey Kevin....No doubt about that!!!!! I remeber last year when it was 6deg without the wind chill I watched the weather channel last night and it showed 0 deg weather for wed on.....

I hear ya Mo, but its tough because I have run the purple since the early 90's.....LOL The next body Adrian is going to do the sides different (tone it down).

Rain....E-mail me at work and I will send you a pdf file setup to run paul@schumacherusa.net

We here ya ottoman....No one more than Schumacher wants this car out.....Everyday its delayed, interest is lost by potential racers. Just think if you were one of the diehard HPI racers who had to wait 1 1/2 years for the new Pro4.....I feel we are pretty lucky that its only 2 months late.....3rd week of Jan is the scheduled production run if everything falls into place.

since the car is made in England, stlnlst was telling everyone that the delay was caused by the instruction needing translated from English to American, any truth to that? LOL

Matt - you think that funny but you wouldnt believe the calls we get sometimes...

"what is this wishbone thingy?"

"centre (cen-tree) track rod?"

"ball grippa?"

"what are tyres (tie-rez)?"

"you guys need to edit you manual better...there were a lot of mis-spelled words....centre, colour, tyres..."

PW, Adrian,

Do you have a suggested list of items we may want to get with the new car, Like the Ti shock standoffs ? , just curious if you feel anything else is a worthy addition to an already outstanding package...

Sometimes I wish they would just add 6 months onto the release date... its nicer to be surprised with a early release than to watch the date keep getting pushed back If I were a HPI guy I would have no problem waiting for the Pro4, if it means the car will work when its released... they probably still wince when you say Pro3
