I think the new car addresses a lot of things that needed to be tweaked and built on the things that worked well on 4. I think Schumacher is setup with Olie now as well so you have 2 aces ready to rip with this.

i am the opposite. if the kit comes with the traditional 3 screws adapter, i will probably go for it.

itís cheap to switch over and I fully understand this one anyone who races stock at a big race with hand out tires your forced to use the 3 screw tires or anyone who wants to run gt12 at all.

Yup, luckily the Schumacher hubs aren't too expensive and you're still spending less than an Awesomatix and X-ray.

i glue tires, not racing any club races, hence hex handout tires has no point in my case even though it is cheap to switch over and the brunches of wheels (3 screws) last almost forever
respect opinion, but just not applied to everyone especially for my wheels,.....and tire gluing practice

if you are going to switch out the kit's hex hubs in order to run 3 bolt wheels, IMO the best 3 bolt hubs to get are the ones from Roche. They are inexpensive, very light, and they use 2.5 mm screws for the wheels. Those slightly smaller wheel attachment screws make it easier to install the wheels, especially those which have pocketed screw holes such as the ones from CRC or BSR.

Video's flying out in high speed:
Although the Eclipse 5 is a great and fully loaded kit, I couldn't leave it box stock. I wanted some shiny parts! But are they all "just shiny"? You can find out here:
