That car looks like it has has 3x the number of moving parts as others on the market. How do you keep it from rattling to pieces on the track?

I see that you have the same as I have ad my club. after the start you see only drivers that you put on a lab

I like the way how the diff and the spool are made. looks good.
Does the car drive better than the LP version?
Does the diff still use the locking system that they had on teh mi3?
I loved the diff because off that. rebuild it withoud needing to readjust it. it is alway right after building it right the first time.

I drove the mi3 a few years ago but I switched to hotbodies and later to the Photon.
I'm still looking around to other cars and the new mi4 looks good.

Schumacher makes good strong cars. and they are fast.
a lot of corner speed and a good handling.
The car may look strange but it is a good car. Ad my club we have some mi3 and mi4 drivers and they are fast.
it will not fall appart on the track, even not after a hard crash.

I can't think of a single person that didn't get faster when they switched away from a Schumacher. It wins some eye candy awards, I guess, but otherwise it seems overly complicated and slow. TC's are work enough to keep running, why make it harder?

I won all the races that I raced with the mi3. I drove mod in that time.

I can't see why you think its so complicated compared to others!

Just about every week i get someone's car from my club dumped in my hands followed by, "make that work better". So i've worked on quite a few cars, and i would say the schuie is the simplest by far.

I've been running the mi4lp for a year now and have gone from being stuck in the C's to winning the A group championship at my local last season. So i would say its more than just eye candy.

Only thing i ever broke on the lp were drivshaft blades which has been redesigned on the CX so would say reliability is excellent.
