The shocks are short. Same length as the ones in the kit for the mi6evo. The caps and shock ends are mi7 specific though.

Did anyone notice the set screw in the dog bone where the blades go? No bending the blade to get it on, thus stays straight with a tighter fitting tolerance into the diff.

The shocks are ultra short, not the same on Mi6evo kit. Ultra short were available as an option much later.

I like how the ARB's mount - looks much easier to change bars and there should less bar tweak with the one piece design.

The "tweak free" system on the top of the bulkhead would have been also nice on the upper-deck... Strange...

I won't even talk about the bearing in the lower arms... tssss

I meant to type "Option Kit" I hate posting from my phone.

Hopefully my kits ship soon.... The wait is killing me.

Default Has anyone noticed that the motor is in front of the gear?

Has anyone noticed that the motor is in front of the gear? and the other mid cars are in the back?

Yes, it was designed like that on purpose to center the motor. When Schumacher does the release video will have a better understanding about key design concepts. Must work well being that it is the current BRCA modified and stock champions.

Was it the rear motor or mid motor that won the BRCA titles?

Only the Team Drivers can answer that, but I think they would have tested both then went with what worked the best.

I think Schumacher one upped the competition with the true mid motor layout. Very nice.
