I agree, ALOT of heads have been turned! Even the ones who said Schumacher couldn't do it!

I don't know why people would say Schumacher couldn't do something like this. They've done it before.

Except this time around, instead of their unique design being viewed as 'weird', it instead being viewed as a breath of fresh air by people who are sick of seeing the exact same cars with different names slapped on them.

WYD:

Hi,

I'm looking to get at least two Mi3's. but I'll wait for a carpet version (hint, hint) as for Nitro off road we are supposed to get a new BIG 1/8th scale track built about 40-50 miles from where I live so I might be learning how to tune Truggies. I might get something else to play with
(maybe a Rascal).

Darksied:

Hi,

I agree with you. Shumacher has always had it in them to build unique cars. the Mi3 is just awesome. too bad our carpet season is amost over

Thanks

So I'm already getting started on my Mi3 stuff to have ready when the car arrives!
I'm working on some custom Schumacher logos right now.
I'm also working on some custom Mi3 logos as well.

Here is the Schumacher stuff, tell me what you think.

They all look great but for me the 2 yellow ones look the best with the last one my number 1 pick

Talking Mi3 Type R should be next

I'd love to see the Mi4 or Mi3 "R" type. A rear motor mounted Mi3. Something like a LOsi JRX-S Type 3, but witht he Mi3 materials, colors, beauty, engineering..WOW. the car of the future. I am sure a car like that would be easier to drive and faster, better balanced than the current side motor set ups...Xray should have kept on developing the T1R car, instead of just copying the side motor set-up popular now. Props to Losi for perseveering withir design and polishing it. The MI3R should be perfect car...better balanced than the current side motor set ups....so how about it?

I think PW has the only Mi3 at the Birds. I think Justin Lessard is running an EC and he bumped into the A in Stock Foam today from the B. Chris Goetz was also in the B in stock foam. Goetz and PW both are in the C main in the very stacked 19 turn foam class. PW is in the C main in mod foam. I'm sure there's other team drivers I'm just not seeing. It's late and I'm doped up on cold medicine.

I was surprised how close I got it too look when I was working on it in Illustrator.
Thats ok, I don't want it to be NEW but look very similiar using something else other than that black box it is now.
I do want to go really different with the Mi3 logo. I am working on that now.
