the different shops can take pre-orders for cars. they want to know who is real or who is just a poser. http://www.discountrcstore.com/ is also taking pre-orders from people for just that reason. they don't want to order a lot of kits, and have them sitting on a shelf for a long time.

But above post is right they were openly on display at Halifax a couple of weeks ago. First batch will be limited stock apparently.
These have been listed for rc shops to pre order for over a week now.
The shop we have ordered ours from is called moss models.

Alex is a sound guy and comes highly recommend.
P.S Paul when I was there today I ordered yours too.
I may be banned for complaining about bad driving. Put together with some thing that happened 15 years ago, and for grabbing some youth by the neck when he knuckled me on the back of my head.

If you have a part number they why be so coy about it? Give the part number to all the Schumacher enthusiast so they can order one from their respect hobby shops. Team drivers are alway testing new parts on their cars, it is what they get paid to do. I would never preorder a new product without seeing the details about it first, common sense should always come first.

Was the car tested on any North American carpet tracks? Any time at 5280 or anything similar? Any serious US factory drivers coming along with the new car?

No, both front and rear arms are different, Wider at the bulkhead and they mount in a different way, same concept, just refined to reduce slop. Dont know about the Chub.

Chris G

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.
This is what I found on the racing-cars.com, (the Schumacher website):

http://www.racing-cars.com/products....&pagewidth=550

Colin Price won the mod class, chriss grainger was 2nd, and matt white ended up in 8th.

Now the question is, did they win with the standard MI-5, since the weather was cool and everyone knows how good the MI-5 works on low traction, or did they use the new MI-5 EVO?

Could someone in England give us the answer to this question?

I was told they ran Mi5's in the wet, which was almost every run last weekend.
