Yes i orded from them through my lhs and it has taken nearly 2weeks and still no parts from them. So i just wanted to know if there was a faster closer place to get parts from. I was there when the parts were called in on Jan. 2nd.

From what i can see in the the pics of the new r12 it looks like the rear suspension ( upper arm mounts, upper wish bone and shocks)are just turned around so that the shocks are on the inside next to the spur gears. and it looks like they have put the shock the shock towers from the misssion on it. i don't know if they have changed the lower arms or not but it doesn't look like it. I am wondering what is different about the clutch set up on the new r12 my self. And any one know where i can get a set of the mip cvd's for it.

Yes, the rear suspension is just flipped around (shocks in front of arms) and front upper arms are used in rear as well, giving rear caster options. As much as I understand, the upper arms and hub carriers in the Team kit will be alloy. Lower arms are the same, no change there.
The clutch is totally new (well, at least for Schumacher), should be a lot better.
MIP CVD's you can get through Schumacher retailers, they sell them. Schumacher part number U2151 "Steel CV Drive Shafts - Touring (pr)" (same part number was used earlier for Schumacher's own steel driveshafts, which are now discontinued).

Cool-finally read all 7 pages of this thread. Good info.

My Local track and the 2004 ROAR nationals Nationals track are both prepared, sealed asphalt tracks, pretty high bite (one extremely high bite) and Big. 230 to 250' straightaways. Both a little bumpy in some corners-but not horrible.

Any insights from all the guys running this sedan about how it compares top speed to other makes (mugen, NTC3 to be exact) and how it runs on 1/8th scale tracks (big Looong sweepers followed by scary and fast doglegs). I also keep reading about an inherent push-which would hurt this car on a big track I would think.

Thanks in advance,
Ray
