Typical Awesomatix problem!
I've written the same question in the A700 post long time ago, even proposed a solution, but no answer from the car designer...

Your idea was what I was referring to in my first post, it looks like a good solution and would be interesting to see implemented on either car.

Airwave, the adjustable rear toe of the A700 is nice!!! You can put any amount of toe you want without buying any new parts This is like how the Schumacher cars use to be back in the day(SST, Axis, Axis2). Having better setup tools now days I wonder why Schumacher didn't go back to that type of design

Saw a few flying round the Cotswolds yesterday. Car is very fast, 2nd in super touring in the hands of Chris Grainger. Only saw 1 with an issue after a fairly heavy incident which was the rear right front ball joint on the wishbone coming off iirc. Beautiful car to hold!

Default A new dynamic...

This car seems very different, I wonder how long it's gonna take for the fast drivers to get to a really good base set up.

Whilst, by the sound of it, Harper was on fire at Cotswolds with the new Durango, it is a far more conventional looking car, and maybe a bit easier to get a base set up on. I say maybe, before I get lampooned.

Team drivers have been racing the car for several months and podiumed at national events. I think they have a good base setup. But I can see how it might appear intimidating

Grainger got 2nd behind him with his Mi5.

Hofer got 3rd in one of the last ETS triple A-Mains and ended up 5th over all in Super Stock.

I'd say they have a good base setup for mod and stock right now.

Robin, any chance of sending either Chris or Martin to the Reedy next month?

I can't wait to get my hands on my mi5. I have already received my mid motor belts, alloy top deck mounts and my cf 2.5 degree rear wishbones. I'm so pumped for this build! My cxls have been getting better and better every time I run them! I want to thank CPD racing and tjd models and of course Schmacher for making an awsome car and backing it with awsome parts and tech support

What are the alloy top deck mounts? Are they to replace the stock plastic parts that secure the top deck CF parts to the suspension mounts?

They are indeed for the top deck! Just to let every one know aswell that will be getting the mi5 there is a little bit of confusion in regards to the mid motor assembly. You have to buy a conversion kit. I think Schumacher will clear this up. I spoke directly to Schumacher about this as I thought I would only have to buy just the belts to do the conversion!

Pretty sure that in the video Chris Grainger did say that you only need the belts
