Thanks Adrian, it was a very nice build, just wish that it would stop raining here in the UK to let me race!

Run the 3rd Round National Championship this weekend, receive the car on Saturday and win on Sunday with lap record ( 10.5T blinky)
The car is great! Amazing corner speed and stability... no mechanical issues watsoever and reacts to minimal setup change amazingly well!! I let our former National Champion (Stock Class) test the car a bit and he as got the same feeling! I think he will change is car brand in a near future
I am a Schumacher user since forever, but i must admit i was not a big fan of mi3 and mi4, but this Mi5 they nailed it perfectly

By the way Mi5 makes 1st and 2nd in Stock class and 4rd in modified.

Now i will put it a little on a diet....

Works very well at our hi-grip carpet track
I've had to run against one a few weeks now

Ran great for me too, for a first outing, (we run in a large sports hall 13.5 boosted) creates loads of corner speed, car was really planted with no grip roll in sight. only thing to get used to was the initial turn, this car is super fast for turning first few laps found myself turning in to early, so dialled back the linear curve 15%. once I got used to it made a final. (was running standard motor but this Friday trying mid) was running used (8 round old sorex jb 28 and was running SUBARU IMPREZA TYPE C BODY ) will put up a photo of it all wired in mid when my new tekin gen2 arrives.

That belt angle looks horrible! (No offense).
That's gotta wear out or jam up big time!
Just an observation here,........apart from that I'm seeing these cars perform awesomely,just wonder how they will go in summer.....hmmmmmm..

Great! Loads of traction, plenty of steering, smooth and consistent - all it needs is a better driver on the stix to win! Lol!

I wonder how the mid-motor would work on a small 70x55 indoor asphalt track with to die for traction?

I would think it would be excellent - reduce the rear toe a bit maybe?

Does the car hold its tweak fairly well? Just wondering since the car has a good amount of flex in it.
