About 3/4 of your pics are of the .12 proto and the other 1/4 are of the Fusion .21 (mostly at the top of the thread).

was just frustrated when I followed your link, thinking you had anything updated, and all I saw was the stupid Fusion .21. Unfortunately it seems that Schu doesn't have anything new for you to give us so that was mostly my comment.

Cartman - let's examine the pictures and links you provided. The first link you provide is:

http://www.racing-cars.com/newsdetails.asp?itemId=NP32 to which the header is "Fusion Update" and the first words of the body are "The new Schumacher Nito Fusion is the fastest most exciting R/C Touring car ever created. The enormous .21 (3.5cc) Pro Spec engine, with its CNC tuned pipe system, is capable of propelling the lightweight 4WD chassis to an incredible 80mph." That isn't the prototype .12 car.

Please note the reversed servos - steering is BEHIND the throttle servo - this is noted in the Extreme article specifically and is a specific difference from the very cool spy shots you provided (wish you could get more. . . )

Second picture -


Again, this looks to be the .21 Fusion - how can I tell? I can't, not completely, but again, LOOK AT THE SERVOS. . .the throttle servo is at the FRONT of the car. . .on your spy shots, it's behind the steering servo. . .this leaves the conclusion that this is the Fusion, not the .12 proto.

I'm not trying to pick a fight here. I was just disappointed to see that nothing new was known or seen.

I personally think that this car (the .21) is a bit of a dumb car. TONS of straightline speed but there's no way the suspension is going to be able to handle all that power going into a turn. . .

Default PARTS

HEY, GUYS MOST OF ALL THE PARTS OF THE MISSION WILL FIT THE FUSION 12 & THE 21, A COLLEAGE OF MINE HAS JUST PURCHASED A 21, THE DIFFERENCE ALSO BETWEEN THEM BOTH IS THAT THE 21 IS RAN ON JUST ONE BELT
THE PROTOTYPE IS RAN ON TWO BELTS MOST OF THE STUFF IS SIMILIAR BUT THE PARTS ARE SO CHEAP FOR THEM TOO. IT IS ALL BASED ON THE MISSION.
ITS A COOL THING TO DO I JUST LIKE TO SEE HOW IT DOES NEXT YEAR WHEN IT IS RELEASED ITS NO LONGER A PROTOTYPE. OTHER DRIVERS CAN SHOW THIER STUFF ON THE TRACK THEN WE WILL SEE HOW GOOD A CAR IT IS
