Thanks! I call the TC5 chassis the 2010 Spec I think with the popularity of lipos for club racing, the manufacturers will follow suit with similar concepts to mine in the following years, if they continue to design cars with the battery to one side.
My Schumacher is totally transformed. I was not a big fan of the original MI3's performance for Socal temporary asphalt tracks- just WAY too stiff and also a small window of optimal handling on permanent asphalt tracks.
With the new chassis the handling is just incredible now on these tracks. More rear grip equaled being able dial in more aggressive steering... I won't go on about it but once word gets out after people try it watch out

Very good to know about the 009. That was the common trait with my TC5 and MI3 on very low grip club tracks until the changes for more chassis flex in the rear.

Will do!

$79.95 for the lipo chassis. Probably about $15 for the top flex plate.

I'll get these into production this month. Hopefully I can at least sell enough MI3 lipo kits to break even on the development cost


Thanks all for the support!

carpet is higher bite then asphalt, you may want to check into the 3mm carpet chassis and carpet top deck.

Typically, when running rubber tires on carpet you would still use stock thickness bottom plates so yes. Foam tires is when a thicker chassis might benefit you as grip levels can go through the roof. As traction goes up with rubber on carpet you can tune the MI3 with heavier springs and stiffer top plate options that Schumacher has if needed.

Love that chassis saw the TC5 first and made me want a TC5 (and I don't like the TC5). Definitely have to have one of these.

I agree with you Rod! I saw that TC5 chassis and it made me want one too! I would have one for sure if I did though. But I'm racing a Yokomo BD5. Eventually they will sell the lipo chassis for it. BUT, it will be wider, which sucks arse. So I probably won't switch over.
