Schumacher UK has them in stock. Hey, its a good excuse to order a front gear diff and alloy vented shock caps...lol!

If US Schumacher dealers are out you can use these 7075 T6 alloy scews.

I can't compare their quality to the Schu screws as I don't have my kit yet but I have used them in my pan cars and they are quite strong. They should function similarly to the U4236 screws.

After two race days I have had zero durability issues. However the caster block has developed some play, it might be the bearings developing race slop. Other then that this car is dialed on our super high bite carpet! Fast lap and Win in the A main on Saturday.

So who is planning to race the Mi5 at the IIC in Vegas this year? I'm certainly going but haven't figured out which classes to run yet.

I'll be there with some Crc and Xray guys from Minnesota! Hope it works as well as my T4 did last year!

24 hours now and I haven't heard a word from Schumacher. Read somewhere were they highlighted that each kit is hand packed. Well maybe they need to revisit all of that. I'm getting pissed off and starting to not like my experience with this company. I even called Storm Hobbies who I purchased the kit from and they sent an email too....... Nothing. Everytime I walk by my workbench and see that kit sitting there un completed it makes my blood boil.

Really starting to dislike this brand.

My days would always be filled how much I loved this hobby of RC. But I can't think of any kind of RC related things without getting upset and wondering how long I have to wait to finish this kit. I feel myself going to always have nothing good to say about Schumacher.

Things happen, and with it being an entire bag its an easy thing when the rush is on to forget. Its just human nature. Back to the car.

Did anyone get the carbon arms with the plastic buttons already CA'd in? Mine had one with the CA "frost" look all over it. It functions fine, just not pretty.

Hi,
Just checked with Mark and we haven't seen an email about this problem. However, we have had a few email troubles over the last 24h.
Would you care to forward me your name and address and the batch number of the kit (on the sticker on the side of the box) PM or email chris(at)racing-cars.com and we'll get you sorted straight away.

An entire bag?????? You really have this kit and are trying to tell me that its just whoops they missing AN ENTIRE BAG MAN????? Things happen??? I spent my hard earned money. My mommy didn't buy this for me. That's $470 bucks. And all I read about is how great the kit is. When they screw up a customer that should be made known.

And now back to the car???? Nice you have a complete car.

Not sure how to fix the PM's, just send me an email. Also need to know exactly which bag it is.
