It looks sensational.

PW/Adrian can you describe where/how the anti-roll bars fit? Or post a photo showing them?

Will it require a thicker chassis and top deck for carpet/foam?

Finally a car that steps outside of the box!

Later,

The bars were not ready for the pic but they mount low just in front of the diff eccentric hold down in the rear and just behind the hold down in the front. It runs low under the drive shafts to the lower arms.

Note the new 3 piece spool with the beefy out drives. They suport the blade better for less wear and the cups are individually replacable if they do get damaged.

Nice looking car, some unique features. Good job.

A big step forward from the Mi2 EC (which I had one and did not like).

Very Impressive Comon Jason (BMI) get to work I think this car is going to be very popular.

The Schumacher team really did a good job while it is laid out like most of the cars on the market it does have some nice inovation

That's pretty much the most gorgeous R/C car ever created. Even the T2'007, which I thought had the most modern "look" seems ancient in comparison.

I love the tape slots for each battery, that seems to solve the 4/5/6 cell problem nicely. I bet we see that idea pop up elsewhere in the future.

Looks pretty, but why have several bolted components when one will do (particularly the suspension mounts and diff retainers)?

And that one-sided layshaft is brave.

The suspension mounts are dual axis so you can adjust anti-squat and toe-in independently. Currently with 1 peice mounts you put side load on the hinge-pins when adding any toe-in or anti-squat

I can assure you the layshaft system is more than stronge enough. Been running 3.5 and 4.5 BL with great success

The diff retainers only use one piece.
