GM is top dog in everything here in the UK, it realy is a monster.

The car leading the British Touring Car Championship is a Schumacher Mi4LP with the new GM120 ( Chris Grainger )

I never got round to buying those as various people i know have purchased things from TR and had problems with quality / crap service so i cant comment. If the HD ones were as standard on the LP then they bent like bananas..

TiR is now in administration but have been bought over and now called lite modz, service was a problem but seems much better now the company is under new management. There realy are no quality issues except for the spool but that is in the middle of being improved

I know I would love to try a GM, but us americans can't get them. I dislike the Tekins for the fact that they are goofy in mod, and everybody runs them (for stock). Any other ESC are the LRP Sxx SS with the Lrp Stock Spec motor (I run the Sxx TC for mod and it's a awesome speedo) or the Orca Escs that I've heard nothing but good about from Korey H.
The GM is available from www.racing-cars.com ( Schumacher UK )

I do not believe Hara had the best car at the MACH but I feel Jilles Groskamp was best in the infield but just did not have the power, Hara was using the GM and just had a huge advantage over everyone.
