That link is to Schumacher in England. Yes, you can order from them and yes the service is great and not very expensive. Keep in mind you may pay full retail for parts. Thats only fair so Schumacher doesn't hurt the dealers.
In the US....A Main Hobbies and Stormer Hobbies are really good for Schumacher parts.
I've been through all the Mission series from MI1 to MI4LP. Loved them all and they're built tough. Just my opinion but I do really like them.
Good Luck. Do a search for MI3 and I think you'll find a good thread with a bunch of info on that model.

Jochim, I don't believe the Exotek MI3 chassis is still available here although it's worth contacting Mike at Exotek to see if he can arrange one. Last I looked, his Distributor in England did have them still available.
Definitely worth having and makes LIPO use much easier.

Here's the link for the UK distributor.

I don't know if they still have any but it's worth a shot to contact them.

Mi3 is a Mi3, Mi3.5 is a Mi3 with the the usual hop ups already in the box, Mi4 is different, cx has is basically the same with changes, cxl I don't know as mine spent from May 2nd to May28th in customs a waiting a "bearing compliance form" that the UK said they sent and UPS said they never got and was returned to shuie. (but thats another story) the arms C hubs rear uprights, shock towers and few other parts are the same between models,

exotec chassis is awesome on the car, Stormer hobbies and A main hobbies both stock parts, go to the racing-cars web site and download a parts list for the Mi3 to make sure your ordering the right stuff.

As for the different models; they're all a bit different but all a bit the same.
Schumacher is great for commonality between models so parts from the MI2 may actually be the same for the MI4 with very little change.
The lineage is: Mission, MI2,MI2EC, MI3, MI3.5,MI4,MI4LP,MI4CX,MI4CXL. The MI1 is actually the original "Mission" updated with a lipo compatible chassis. It was released sometime around the MI4LP. BTW, all the "MI" cars are actually part of the "MIssion" family.
You can see all these models on the Schumacher site and get an idea of what changes were made between models.
