From what I have heard it will be called the Schumacher mi5 evo available within a month and 3 drivers tested it at Halifax last week (one of which won)
Chris G
Matt W
Colin P

supposed to be very different with only the drivetrain the same,
camber links to attach to the bulkheads along with the top deck ( top deck wider and lower but still the same way round)
reports so far is it is a big step forward.

If it is going to be available within the month the tooling and initial production orders would already have to be out to the suppliers. We should be able to get some sneak peeks by now.

Really good to drive.
What I bought to set-up:
- 2,5 degree rear toe arms
- 2.0 degree rear toe arms

What could be nice:
- all stabi rods front and back. Kit has a 1,4mm and 1,2mm.
- 3 dink camberlink to shorten front or back camberlinks
- Couple of shims if you don't have them laying arround.

Regards Robert

The top deck I have herd is in the same orientation but slightly shorter. The on board camber link may be the same as xray ect not the carbon plates. So Schumacher have been listening to you people.
