Default Any interest in a MI3/3.5 Lipo Chassis?

Hi Schumacher drivers,

I've been developing a lipo chassis for a few cars since the spring of last year that included the MI3/ 3.5 but of course Schumacher released the MI4 only a few months after releasing the MI3.5 which was unexpected so my question is;
Would you still be interested in a Lipo chassis similar to this?

http://www.exotekracing.com/EXOTEK_N...6/29_TC5X.html

Pretty much the same price as the TC5X Lipo Chassis and similar features except that the MI3x Lipo Chassis has cut outs around the bulkheads to effectively shorten them (the effect is similar to the shortened MI4 bulkhead mounting). This creates a chassis that is much more suited for rubber tire/ asphalt racing due to the increased chassis flex.

Depending on the response I may proceed to production but might ask for pre-orders to be placed with a small deposit.
Let me know your thoughts please.

Thanks!

Mike

Thanks Antoni

Definitely for the Cyclone. Possibly 009, TA05II and 416.

The plan would be to make it's own motor mount so that it's compatible with either the 05 or 05II. No pics sorry.

The schumacher is a killer looking addition. The Tc5 and the Mi3.5 both look really updated when you add these parts. How has testing with the Schumacher gone?

I would be keen on a 009 chassis, your ideas and their implementation look very slick.

Plus the Xray chassis is very thick and stiff.

I think the 009 would benefit a lot with the additional flex in the rear end of the chassis, i have tried the fibreglass T2R chassis plate, but i think it just flexes too much from the motor forward. The slots in the rear end of the chassis would help remove the Xray tendancy to lose its ass on low grip tracks.

Yes, it's only rear flex that's needed to be improved on Xrays..
That would be a quantom leap, especially at a track like CastleHill

x10 on the 009 chassis... I think that is where your money maker would be.
