I'm sorry that you're confused. I think I can clarify.
Your comment was "it's not that serious"
My comment was meant to demonstrate that this hobby is, in fact, rather serious.

Only thing I gained from your photo is Xray and IRIS need to re stock kits before outdoor season. That is rather serious, wouldnít wanna miss sales. In response to my original comment, you probably missed the point. Maybe Take a different approach to the hobby. Buy what you like and enjoy it. Itís great to see another new car from Schumacher and looking forward to running one.

The crazy part for me on all examples shown is that you literally can order the same chassis overseas, have it shipped in like 3 to 5 days and it's cheaper than mail order within the United States.

I do like the location of the sway bars on the Mi9. Gonna be alot easier to change them out compared to other cars on the market.

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?
If I recall the Schumacher had a mid motor decades ago before AMX even existed I think AdrianM will know more about that he worked/ran Schumacher USA

IIrc - it was because the Axis was based off the Cat2000 offroader chassis & transmission, they fitted shorter arms to it and voila. More a manufacturing choice than a design one I'd say. This was the trend then, Losi SW, and a couple of others did that too before EP DTM really took off.

Having said that I had two of them and they went like stink back in the days!

Thanks!
Yes and are supplied in the Mi9 kit.

This happens pretty much every time a new car is released from any brand.
