Hey Rob I was running Associate oil. I noticed you ran Losi oil on your setup sheet...Is it about the same? I started with 50/40 and ended up going 40/40 and it made a huge difference. Associated shocks with #2 pistons.

By the end of the night I could spin the tires with no pinion on and it would spin for around 6-8 seconds. Better than even my single belt corally was!! Thats with stock bearings that didnt even get the grease cleaned out.

Get that car dialed before the nats!!f

Hello Doug....The cars are shipping from England at the end of the week. That means cars should arrive next week! If you give us a call at Schumacher we can give you a local dealer or a online shop that will have kits first.

Between 9am - 6pm est (813) 889 9691

Thanks for the quick reply glad to see that people direct from shumacher are on this forum. I was mainly just looking for a price considering that i am only 15 years old so money dosent come easy. But i build things and then sell them so i was just looking for a price that i need to save up to.



Thanks
Doug

The suggested retail is $299.99 for the graphite kit. I think most shops will sell the car between $289 - $299.

Schumacher is in the process of launching an all new website (shopping cart etc. etc.) and you will most certianly be able to order from there when its done. In the mean time I believe they will put the Mi2/parts on the current website once the car is out.

Bedtime....ttyl

Oh Yeah....A car annouced almost 2 years ago made it out before the Mi2 (annouced 5 months ago)....never would of thunk it....

Anyway....The Mi2s are in flight! The cars have been shipped and are in the hands of the ol'mighty brown men 90% of Mi2 parts are already in stock as well!

First asphalt race with the MI2 and it takes the TQ and the win in Expert Stock at TQ Hobbies in Orlando. The car is good, but actually could be better. I'll work on the setup a few more weeks before I post anything. It's me against the X-Ray Nation (8 in the A plus one Losi), so I'm on my own for setup help. But I can tell you this, the car seems to like alittle more gear, and alittle softer spring then the Mission did. More to come.

I'll be at Strickland tonight too. I can help you with either car. I have a really good setup for the Mission. Come by the pits tonight and I'll show you what I've got so far.
