Sales are going alright it seems, but I don't think anybody expects the opposite, it's a good car.

Also;
The exploded view has been released, it's available on the Schumacher website or our own.

Have to say.. This really is how to do a launch right. Info up, and cars in people's hands ASAP, plus the spares and options are there too. Bravo to Schumacher
(FYI, mine will be here next week, damn being on the opposite side of the world! )

I loved my Mi5 and although I ended up liking my Wildfire D06 slightly more, it was not easy to let the Mi5 go. This evo version appears to address everything I could even think of complaining about - very very nice!

Completely agree, I like the way they have the manual available and they way they have, with the last few cars, shown great pics and what all the changes are. It's also good to see the in-studio video this time round so they are getting better and better at this advertising lark!

The new car does look like it addresses the view that the Mi5 was just a tarmac car and with the wider top decks and the new roll centre/camber link settings it should be pretty good. Would really like to see one in the flesh... I have built most of the previous models and the Schumacher is always a good build.

Default arms and parts

wonder if the MI5 arms will fit on the EVO.
I didn't see a cross platform parts compatibility listing.

Nice to see the option for the top decks.

did they change the ackerman for the steering CF arms? etc.

olhipster1, I think they did I was looking at that last night. By looking at the pics it seems that the CF steering arm only has one hole instead of 2. However, the steering rack is more adjustable now with the ball studs being able to be adjusted forward and back.

They did, and there is also a 'hop-up' part. Carbon steering arm for the front hub with a different, "more lock" angle.

I don't believe arms etc will, as the spacing to bolt onto the chassis is different (although spacing is the same front to rear I've been told... So you could mount front arms on the rear... I'll get back in the box from 1987... )

TryHard, are you thinking about trying the adjustable toe in the rear like the SST and Axis cars of old.... Seems like several of the other manufacturers are going that route.

The rear hub carbon plates are exactly the same as the Mi5. The front steering block carbon plates are different "out of the box" but the old ones will also fit to provide some adjustment.

Arms are different - and old ones won't fit, as Ed said.
