Default Awesome USVTA Setup - Schumacher Mi1 with upgrades

This car has only been raced 1 weekend at the last USVTA Nationals triple crown race. (I took 3rd overall in points for USVTA in this series.) I wanted to run 17.5, USGT, and VTA in the last event, so I bought this car just for that weekend. Lets just say that was a bit much for me to handle and I am just going to stick with 2 classes this season. So 17.5 and USGT it is for now. The car is definitely an A main national level car. Fastest lap ran in USVTA at the scale nationals was 9.7 and this car was able to do a 9.8... It is very easy to drive and it has a unique belt drive train that is very efficient. (Why I went with this car.) It is also built like a tank and can take a beating. Very helpful in some USVTA races!

I ended winning the B main out of about 50 with this car, but I had to bully Myron AKA AKA Darkside in the last lap and pushed him out of my way. I conceded the win, so I really ended up taking 2nd in the B. Here is the video of the race if you want to see how good this car handles and me punting myron on the final lap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXrNz2c8np4 It is the 5th car Gulf black/blue/orange car in this race. The race is more interesting in the last few minutes.

+ YouTube Video

Here is a breakdown on what was spent on the car and what is included:

$150 Schumacher Mi1 1/10 Electric Touring Car Kit
$15 Spur Gear adaptor
$50 Tamiya Shocks
$70 U3803 - Carbon Fiber Chassis (Not installed)
$8.25 Parma PSE Universal Ultimate Bumper
$8.49 Precision Racing Systems 64P Pro Lite Spur Gear (110T)
$4.89 Yokomo Pro Shock Spring (Long Type - Pink)

$13.25 U2482 Schumacher Front Belt (Grey)
$13.49 U2483 Schumacher 27T Rear Belt (Grey)

$50 Speed Passion Club Stock Speedo (New just installed)
$50 1251 Sorex Low Profile Servo
$40 Used set of VTA tires/rims/body (Pearl White Camaro body and black rims are included. I am keeping my orange rims and gulf body in case I do get back into USVTA.)

Thanks. Some people take this toy car racing a bit to serious.
