Fresh from two wins and five A main showings at the Snowbirds, Schumacher USA have announced that Mike Haynes will join their racing tea. Already a Speed Passion factory team driver, Mike now makes Schumacher USA his one stop shop for both chassis and power. Schumacher USA representative Shawn Palmer stated that “Mike has done a tremendous amount of on-track testing and development for our Speed Passion ESC and motor line, and we’re certainly looking forward to his insights going forward with our on road chassis program as well. He is a wealth of information for his new teammates, and I know we’ll all benefit greatly having him on the team”. Mike works at his home track, 360 RC Speedway & Hobbies in West Babylon NY which is one of the most active racing facilities in the Northeast and recent host of a ROAR regional championship and he had the following to say about the deal:
I’m looking forward to running the Mi3.5 since there is so much to tinker with on it. In the past I have wished there was a fine adjustment for various items, and the Mi3.5 has just that, but for everything on the car! The rest of the team has already helped me out a great deal by providing information about the car and it will make the transition to Schumacher that must easier.
