  • NEW - Lightweight gear differential design with ultra-smooth action, improved performance and ease of build.
  • NEW - Front and rear driveshafts. All new low-profile joints, joint positioning, ball bearing outputs and weight reduction provide performance improvements.
  • NEW - Wheel hexes for easier attachment.

Cool, you've just pointed out that I can get a lot of the features of an AMX that I like, without the ones that I hate!

Actually everything above was new and created by AMX but it won’t stop me from buying an MI9. Always wanted an AMX with conventional shocks.

Also those dates are wrong. The diff design has been around since 2011. Split top decks and triple jointed drive shafts were released in 2016-2017?

I was long term customer for locally unsupported Schumacher for years because of their rather not so copycat and user friendly design. But now....
I see less and less originality in recent release. If their next 4wd buggy is a shaft drive. I might ditch the brand for something cheaper and locally available.

If you strictly follow that thinking there isn't a single brand on the market today that you'll feel good about buying. 1/12 scale cars from Delta and Trinity had the first double turnbuckle upper suspension arms in the late 80's. Awesomatix borrowed that. Schumacher's first Sedan the, SST 1997, through to the Mission series had light upper and lower ball front and rear hubs. The first Xray's were basically Corally sedans. Tamiya's TA05 had the first mid motor, equal belt drivetrain in 2005, now everyone has that. Every single manufacturer copies whatever else is currently fast sooner or later. Especially the brands that care about winning races. Awesomatix, Xray, Mugen, Yokomo, Tamiya and Schumacher have all evolved to be similar.

I say pick the brand you like the most and have fun racing it

It's amazing that people are surprised, that after at least 15+ years of the chassis specs being the same, that different companies have made designs that are 95% similar. There's an optimal configuration event horizon, and we're pretty much there.

No one here makes a living racing professionally. You can buy what you like and enjoy your hobby, itís not that serious.

[QUOTE=gwhiz;16096510]I think it's a little bit serious

Iím confused how cost of kits correlates with someone saying the Schumacher copied a brand that an individual has no loyalty to other then extracting money from their bank account to said brand.
