99% sure its xray. It also has an xray belt and a larger front spool pulley. He must have needed to cut a grove in the chassis to allow for the extra hight.

The Sway bar has just been lifted up, if you look at the rear roll bar it slopes to the rear by about 2mm, so lifting the mounts up just keep it all level

Chassis is cut deeper than normal between motor and downstop, like BD5...more flex at the rear ?

Looks like Schumacher looking to develop the car more seriously. Great!. Mine was fast if you could get it right, no doubt, but in general was so, so difficult to drive in comparison to Xray and Tamiya.

Grainger, Pietsch, Hofer...well these are seriously fast guys. Hope they can bring out the car's potential, look forward to seeing what they can do with it

Im my eye's yes its a better car by far, the drivetrain is much more reliable and sturdy, the car itself is sharper, turns in better and seems to hold more corner speed. So its a YES go get one :-)

Hello to the MI4CX threat!

I do have a Setup sheet filled but the pdf file is to big to upload it on the forum, so here is the link:

If you add 1mm rideheight and 1mm of droop front and rear you can use this setup as a basic carpet setup aswell!

Cheers Martin, good to have you on board and congrats on the ETS win. Hopefully the first of many with the Mi4CX
