I believe the question was Mi4 or 009, The Mi4 is due to be released sometime around the end of this month, if I was trying to make a decision I would wait to see the car and make my comparison/decision then. And as far as support, check the Speedpassion and Schmacher threads, support second to no one.

I don't know for sure but the mi4 seems to accept lipo without the slightest modification.

On the 009 you have to put spacers under the top deck to do that with 5000-sized lipos and to me that's a no-no.

I never owned any of those cars... but this lipo issue would point me without a doubt towards the Schumacher which is BTW more original, and innovative IMO.

The Xray is durable, and the fit/finish is second to none.
Dad crashed his Mi3 so hard (side first) it cracked the brick, change a collapsed bearing and a CVD blade but other than that not s single tweak on the bulks

Ollie Jeffries switched to the TC5 this winter, Adam Rogers runs a '009 I think.

Andy Moore put in a appearance as well, but we hardly ever see him racing in the UK.

Elliot Harper wasn't there today, so next weekend will decide

yeah elliott was at home revising for exams that start the first day after the national lol.
