Default Competition Schumacher Nitro TC Coming ?

I saw in the Reedy International race report that Teemu Leino took home second with his Schumacher. Do we have a car coming soon ?

if it had a 3-speed, I doubt it was legal for racing. . .

Yes there is a car being tested in the UK and it has made some A finals at the British Nationals.
it does not have a 3 speed and is based on the mission/fussion

looks much like this ( i said much)

It sure looks like it has a 3-speed from the CAD drawing. Also they mention .21 motor which means 125cc fuel tank which would indicate that this is not a 200mm touring car. I own a Mission for my electric car but when will those wacky Brits at Shumacher get a clue about gas cars and what the market wants? If you recall their last gas car was a huge flop too.

Thanks, I am anxious to get a 200mm touring car... was gonna get a v1rr or a TC3, but when I heard about the schuie, I decided to wait an see what it looked. I race a Mission in EP, so I would like to keep it in the family.

when you click reply there is a box for "attach file" at the bottom right about the Submit reply button. Click the "Browse...." button to navigate to your picture if it's local on your computer.

If the pic is on the net somewhere link to it with the img tag.

When will these manufacturers learn. Electric cars do not work with an engine in them. Even Associated figured that one out.

Unless they are willing to spend some money on R&D and go read the rule book I think electric buggy manufacturers should stick to electric cars.

I have been racing for over 15 years and still haven't seen as sorry an excuse for a nitro racer as the Schumacher. Seriously Schumacher, stick to what you know best.
