A 4wd is being worked on, but not sure how far along they are; it's mostly all new

I had a Fireblade 2000 way back in the day that I loved. It wasn't the best for most American tracks, but it worked well. It's cool to see that they are getting back into the game. It's funny how things come full circle.

I talked to Robin Schumacher a month or so back at the last National over here, and he wasn't to be drawn on any details but he did confirm the car is in the planning stages. Robin mentioned that they might have some prototypes running in the indoor schumacher series (worksop) in the latter stages - early next year I guess before we see a prototype on the track.

I don't know about you jimmy, but i think the new car could be quite inovative like the Mi3 is. Some of the features on that car are so well thought out Cant wait too see what they bring out

Robin was at the iHobby show here in Chicago and did again say they are coming back to offroad and should have something by spring...whether that's proto or production I'm not sure what he meant.

Whatever it is...Oople get some spy pics :P

from Oople.com

"There were a few rumours going around about the new Schumacher 4WD - plenty of talk but sadly no car! Still - there were several Schumacher sponsored drivers in attendance so it wasn't too hard to get a (tiny) hint of the progress on the new car.
The team were supposed to have a private test session which was sadly rained off - so only Simon Moss seems to have driven the new car but wouldn't be drawn on any details what so ever. Some of the 'features' that are rumoured are a triple-belt drive system, very narrow chassis, 4+2 cell layout (similar to the XFactory cars use) and it's said the car will use the widespread Losi wheel fitment. Oh and it looks 'brilliant'. The car might debut at the Nurenberg Torfair next month - and/or the next round of the Worksop series."

So it's out there just still under wraps.
