Hi Guys,

This chassis obviously has a number of innovations which is great. How do they translate into an improved lap time?

How does it compare to a BD7, T4 or 417v5?

I used ca on chassis first then some ford 2 pak polar pearl white over the top. just up to the shock building stage and I must say very easy build everything fits nice no shimming required, really love some of the ideas especially the steering rack. cant put photo up as no posts yet.

Just finished electronics and body fit-up, can't wait to club racing next weekend. This was one amazing kit. Everything went together really well, fits smoothly and with almost no slop.

Does this car require Schumacher spurs only?

Thanks,

Dave

Yes, it has a bearing that goes in the spur. They are the same as the Mi4 spurs.

I have to agree the car is very easy to drive straight out of the box, as said before at yesterday's Schumacher BTCC Stafford meeting the mod and 13.5 boosted classes where won by Mi5's while in the 17.5 blinky class I took 2nd overall after finishing the build of my car at the track just in time for qualifying.

Got mine as well!

That is a little stindgy, I ordered 1 set of rear 2.5 arms, I only got 1 arm because they are only 1 per pack not a pair.
