Didn't a recent Tamiya car do something similar with a layshaft only supported by one side? The variation in bulkhead/aluminum color is slick, very eye catching.

Also, are those the CVD blades Mr. Hudy designed himself, originally carved from a brick of gold?

What are all the slots on the left hand side of the chassis for? Is it to make up for the flex created by the battery slots or something?

Yes indeed That is why the bulkheads are squared off over the battery.

That's awesome. You guys deserve kudos for looking forward, and incorporating that into your design. Clearly, it's possible to design a car to easily fit many styles of battery without compromise. I hope your competitors are watching.

QUOTE from syndr0me "Didn't a recent Tamiya car do something similar with a layshaft only supported by one side? The variation in bulkhead/aluminum color is slick, very eye catching.

Sort of...The Tamiya Anniversary edition Porsche has a cantilevered rotating lay shaft. It goes through the motor mount and into a 2nd bearing block held away from the motor mount with spacers. It looks cool but its overly complicated.

The Mi3 lay shaft is fixed and the bearings are in the pulleys. This is much more simple and has much lower rotating mass.


Also, are those the CVD blades Mr. Hudy designed himself, originally carved from a brick of gold?

Yes, the very ones...

The Schumacher Mi3 is the first next generation touring car. It will set new standards for 4WD electric touring car design. Featuring a host of design innovations and a unique ultra modern look the Mi3 will be the car to beat at race tracks around the world and the benchmark all new touring cars will be compared to.
That introduction had me ready to buy the car before I even got a good look at the pictures! Who ever wrote that needs to write motivational speaches or something!

As for the car, its good to see Schumacher back to their old tricks again. Doing something different than everybody else, but still having it work just as well or better.

I wonder if this car could peacefully co-exist on the pit table with my TA05.

After my success with the TA05, I swore i would never spend $400 on a TC again, but then you guys had to go and fight unfair. First I'll always have a soft spot for Schumacher ever since the SST2000 TC was my first racing TC. an then...

...COME ON MAN!!! Look at that thing! T..e..m..p..t..a..t..i..o..n......overwhelming!

Darkseid, could this have all the noncomformist fast TA05 drivers at Fastlane going mainstream? it would make others feel better when they get beat by MI3 vs. a TA05

Hey Adrian M. or PW:

I see two holes over by the battery slots. Please tell me that there will be an included -or- optional battery strap.
