The Schumacher Mi8 Carbon Fiber 1/10 Electric Touring Car Kit is perfect execution of design and engineering excellence. The Mi8 Carbon is optimized for asphalt tracks, and has been developed by Schumacher’s world class engineering team to be faster, and better handling than ever. With a lower center of gravity, lighter weight, and fine attention to detail, the Mi8 is a pleasure to build, maintain and to drive. The Mi8 contains all the features and adjustments you need from a high end touring car to take you to the top of the podium. 

NOTE: Finished kit shown in photos is for illustrative purposes only. See needed to complete list below for a list of items required to complete the model.  


Features:
  • Redesigned motor position with central layshaft position, offering improved weight distribution, drivetrain efficiency and flexibility. Provides an easier and more consistent handling car with improved steering. 
  • Twin upper suspension link design with improved flexibility characteristics and tuning of castor. Mi7 Single upper wishbone option included for simplified build. 
  • Front body height limit control included in the kit with a lightweight and simple layout.
  • Carbon fiber wishbones with pivot ball mounting inside and out. Improved flexibility, geometry, droop stability and chassis overhang at the rear. Ease and speed of build greatly improved.
  • Updated top deck design. Highly developed flexibility with multiple integration options to the motor mount providing fast but smooth handling out of the box.
  • Motor mount provides increased fore/aft stiffness of the chassis, while maintaining the desired torsional stiffness for stable handling.
  • Vastly shortened shock absorber design and mounting layout allowing for super low center of gravity.
  • Ultra lightweight and low center of gravity one piece servo mount. Increases steering trim reliability.
  • Horizontal rear body mounting option included.
  • Easier access front spool and rear differential.
  • Transmission housing design with many improvements such as lowering center of gravity, durability, ease of assembly and narrower mounting pitch for improvements to geometry and flexibility.
  • Anti Roll Bar design to further lower center of gravity.
  • Ultra fine adjustment eccentrics for optimum belt tension.
  • Lower bumper mount molding preventing touching down on track.
  • Black Alloy turnbuckles for weight reduction and improved lower centre of gravity.
  • Ackerman steering arms for refined steering feel.
  • Optional Mass damping compatibility within each wishbone (x4). 
  • Rear black anodised driveshaft bones with improved tolerance and durability.
  • 28 precision ball raced bearings.
  • “O” ring retained alloy wheel hexes.
  • Hollow, precision steel layshaft.
  • Precision hard anodised alloy gear diff, with large oil volume for improved consistency. Ball raced diff outputs with high precision gears.
  • Ultra durable ‘Long Life’ blades.
  • Improved belt efficiency which can be run much looser without slipping.
  • Arrowmax supplied, 85T industry standard fitting spur gear.
  • Symmetrical chassis cutout offers consistent chassis flex.
  • LiPo adjustment for fine tuning weight distribution with ability to run central shorty.
  • Rear track rod for infinite adjustment to rear toe-in. This can be tuned for the use of Active Rear Suspension.
  • Aerospace carbon fiber components throughout.
  • Ultra low centre of gravity.
  • Double wishbone suspension for increased suspension rigidity, and reduced play.
  • Durable and more efficient drive train with larger pullies 22:40. Great for stock racing.
  • Fully adjustable, suspension geometry, wheelbase, caster, camber, roll centre, ackerman, droop, anti-dive, anti-squat, front and rear toe in/out, ride height and much more.
  • Speed secret parts available to fine tune to all track conditions.
  • Simple twin bellcrank chassis mounted steering assembly. With molded bellcranks with adjustable travel stops.
  • LiPo retention mouldings. No tape required.
  • Rebuildable, super durable steel double joint driveshafts.
  • Low profile threaded insert. Eliminates the need for nuts.

Schumacher Mi8 Carbon Fiber 1/10 Electric Touring Car Kit
Great car, i race this at all the club and larger invitational events and can always podium in my classes with it. Comes with various tuning options in the box. You really don't need any upgrades, kit is good as is. Yet aluminum hubs, servo horn and diff adjustment rings are options id recommend if your serious about racing it and want to take it to the next level.
