Schumacher Mi3 new parts

Schumacher Mi3 new parts

Schumacher have today released some new parts for their latest 190mm Touring car, the Mi3. First up we have some new lower wishbones that are now available in 2 extra versions, making it 3 in total, and are an alternative to the ultra stiff versions that come with the kit and are mostly suitable for carpet racing. The new wishbones come in medium stiffness and soft, and are deisgned for lower grip conditions and because they are less brittle they are suitable for racers that tend to crash more. Also new from Schumacher for the Mi3 are 2 new spur gears, 70T 48 pitch and 96T 64 pitch, that have been created to suit the smaller gear ratios being currently used with low wind brushless stock motors.
