Talking Mi3 @ Snowbirds

Any News? Hows the Mi3 doing at the snowbirds? Maybe someone could provide the names of the Mi3 drivers and we can look their numbers up on snowbirds website?

Exactly the same way real car manufacturers do it i guess.

Design something, try and make sure the design will sell...when they sell it, sell it at a price that will repay R&D and make a profit.

And in the US. We sell huge numbers of Menace's, Havoc's, Fusion's and Rascal's. We also launched a new 1/10th truck at Nuremburg the Riot.

Business is business. We do make a lot selling fun cars but the Mi3 Launch has been a huge wake up call to some people in England.

Speaking of that, do you remember off the top of your head if you guys got an order from Family Hobbies out here for some Rascals? They had asked me for contact information to get some on order.

You are partly correct. They aren't Philips they are Posi drive - often mistaken for philips but definitely different.

Judging by the response from alot of drivers on here who don't run normally run Schumacher's, the Mi3 might be the best selling TC kit yet.

Did you mean the wake up call was the large interest in the Mi3.
