I join no one.....just curious what configuration the stock guys are running as Iím not seeing this must have advantage with mid motor in USGT. I feel I wasted money. Maybe its a different driving style or setup change. 🤷🏽*♂️ Just looking for answers. Nice to hear from you.

A small clarification on our Mi7 Facebook Live event tonight.��

We're going live at 19:00 BST (UK time) which is actually 18:00 GMT. The weathers so bad we forgot it's still technically summer time �� ☔️

Hope you can join us and sorry about the confusion!

SpeedySST, gotta pay to play.....although $638 is ridiculous, Discount RC has them listed for $529 and that's with both the mid and rear motor configuration.

During the live stream they said this kit will include many upgrades that would have been option parts on the older kits, like the dual joint shafts, aluminum rear shafts, titanium tie rods ...."

That also includes the rear and mid motor chassis, top deck and belts.

You obviously don't play mobile games. This hobby is cheap compared to that!

I don't play games at all really. I can spend $550 for a toy car or use that money to join the local rec center, get myself in better shape AND pay the entry fees for a Spartan Sprint race. I think I'll skip the car.

LOL yeah true. I think the closest carpet track to me is Stormer or somewhere in MN and either one is at least 4-5 hours away.

If you're out of the hobby, why are you still posting pessimistic comments in these threads?

Agreed; I've been adding users that comment like this to my "ignore List" and it has completely changed the Forum for me. So much more positive and informative!

The little details in this new Schumacher kit are very appealing. As someone commented earlier, the more you examine it, the more enticing it gets!

Yeah keep ignoring the fact that you can't get new people into this hobby because of the costs involved. For the same amount of money spent on just getting initial setup with car/esc/charger/battery/body/tires/radio/tools/etc, a teenager can buy his first ACTUAL car! For someone like me who thinks about getting back into the hobby, looking at the price of a new touring car and motor of the week dissuades me, but by all means, keep ignoring reality.
