Get it for $530 at discountrcstore.

I've purchased a Schmacher buggy from them before and had no problems.

You might ask Amain if they will price match it I've done that in the past with them successfully.

He No has to be in stock as the site said preorder so then I asked well could you do the conversion rate from pounds to American funds he stated no we do not match out of country prices! Then he went on to say this is a new kit and No one has any in stock. So I asked him how many are you showing in stock he stated one. Again Jun proceeded to say that the company meaning AMAINhad to pay duty fees and vat taxes etc. He stated we have a $25.00 coupon code that would work. I stated back to him no thanks he said ok have a great day!

Reasoning I asked Jun is I went straight to Schumacher site created a account. Put two in the cart please keep in mind I was doing this on my phone. As Schumacher site states at checkout only click once and I did. Got a email from a Caz James saying payment didn't go through guys I do have the funds so I called my bank to see if there was a issue was told no. The gal double looked at everything said I was good to go. So I don't know if it was my phone orSchumacher is having a glitch. I replied back to Caz just waiting to hear back as there a day ahead I think. So that's that 🏁🏁🏁🏁

Picked up mine Wednesday, can't wait to start the build! This will be my first TC. I mainly drive 1/10 buggy's (cougar Laydown).

Those upper arms, EESH, I am skeptical about the durability. We used to have tons of issues with ours.

We tried most everything with the Original Gizmo upper arms (which these are almost identical to), to make them last. I do see the thread engagement being pretty deep, so that should help, but I don't think that will remediate all of it. That is a lot of stress going through that single 3mm turnbuckle and upper arm.

Good news is that it looks like it will be fairly easy to replace the upper arm with Awesomatix Scissor links.
The turnbuckles supplied with the intro kit are titanium . Not a bad deal at $539 with both standard & mid chassis supplied in the kit.

So what are the spare parts we should have on hand from this kit? Just about to start assembling mine, and pretty new to TC racing (coming from 2wd buggy), just wondering what are the parts (like arms for buggy's for example) to have on hand for stuff breaking or wearing out?

Anyone who has ran the Mi7 car please let us know the results for the first trip to the track. What surface are you running on and what class do you race with the new Mi7? I am curious how the cars effect to setup change and did you use the box stock setup?
Thanks,
