So does that mean we can see some BMI making some trick graphite parts for it.

Whether I need it or not I would want some of your killer chassis you machine. You take all the work out chassis prepping. Damn I love that as now you keep me from inhaling graphite particles that I love some much.

Thanks
So am I. Selling my Xray '007 EU kit, and just sold my Yok BD, Kyosho TF-5, and Cyclones, all to leave me with the Mi3. I am sure its the only car I'll need. Dont need to worry about getting another car for at least a few yrs, and it'll be the car to be beat and copy. Lots of current designers will be forced to think-outside the box, and either copy, or come up with better designs, just to keep up. Schumacher dominated the Florida State Series races, and lots of drivers will make the switch. The hobby will get better overall, since manucaturers that want to compete and stay in the game will have to step it up, and relly work hard on their R&D and hosnestly try to put a car that is up to par with the Mi3 and its price, and not just copy what's popular for a quick profit. Schumacher's honest effort and love for their product and their fans/customers is readilly apparent, is ahead of the game for at least a year...since Xray will release a new car kit by November 2007 or early 2008...and for sure it'll be something like the Mi3. It will be great...then Yokomo and Hb Cyclones are next, along with Tamiya and Kyosho, Associated. If I were associated, I would hold off the realease of the TC5 and seriusly re-think the design and features, and try a little harder on making a more updated car, in other words, like an Xray '007 or the Mi3, which are usually at the front of innovation. That Tc5 looks like a copy of several cars...nothing new. This will hurt them and others who follow in those steps. So, way to go Schumacher, you have set the standard, and only will bring out the best in everyone else...

Just think how much money you just saved but selling so many cars and only needing to get one in return. Besides this car has all the adjustments one needs to adjust to any track. Since it will be so new you will be set for at least a year or more. The new car is going to be a great car.

Funny how things change because I have guys that would laugh at my Schumacher even though it works very well but now are like I have the new car on order!!!!!!!!!!! Now I will be making fun of them.

Forgot to mention that if anyone is running the new LRP Sphere 2007 edition to switch it off Lipo mode. On my best mod run the speedo shut down on the last lap costing me a solid run (B-main run)....Yep, forgot to switch it off Lipo mode

Thats why I like the basic Sphere. It may not handle mod, but usually neither can I! Besides, it doesn't have a LiPo mode, or any of those other "improvements" that can jump up and screw you when you least expect it.


BTW: Is there any way we can get a pic of your car with the Sphere installed? It'll be a big help to those of us planning to run BL with the Mi3.
