    We are pleased to announce our new Touring Car platform for 2017 the Mi6evo.

    The Schumacher Mi6evo is the latest evolution of Schumacher’s successful “Mi” touring car range.  It includes the latest developments from Schumacher’s international racing and engineering team to keep you at the front of the pack. 
    Like the Mi6, it is superbly engineered and equipped to enable set up changes to be made simply and quickly.

    The Mi6evo features sensationally free ball raced wishbones with no slop and with an even lower centre of gravity manages to carry even more corner speed. 
    Although still as responsive and nimble to drive as ever, the Mi6evo gives class leading consistency and durability, superb for all levels of driver.
    With a massive attention to detail the all new Schumacher Mi6evo leads the way in 2017. 
    The Schumacher Mi6evo..... racing intelligence evolved!

    B6 / B6D Carbon Steering Block Arms | Set

    The Avid B6 / B6D Carbon Fiber Steering Block Arms (Set) are made from 100% carbon fiber, offers Ackermann tuning options, and saves you a whopping 1g in weight! The set includes 3 pairs of arms: Kit geometry, +1 mid-increased Ackermann, and +2 max-increased Ackermann. This reduces scrub and allows the vehicle to rotate better in the middle of the corner. This rotation comes at the price of less steering at the exit of the corner. +1 is inbetween the kit geometry and our +2 to help you better tune your vehicle, it is suggested that you get our set of all 3 but we do sell them individually.
    Kit Steering Block Arms <---- Less - Middle Steering - More ----> +2 Steering Blocks
    It is recommended to sand the edges and seal the sides with super glue.
    When installing, do one screw at a time so that the part doesn't get pinched by the screw threads causing the carbon to split.
    100% Carbon Fiber, 2.5mm thick.
    +1 blocks marked by a single notch on side and +2 with two notches.
    A double notch on the side lets you know it is the +2.
    Steering Block Weights (2) (Kit: 2.4g | Carbon 1.3g)
    Includes (2) Carbon Steering Block Arms, (2) Carbon Steering Block Arms +1, (2) Carbon Steering Block Arms +2, (3) Doodad containers, (1) Mini-Decal

    We're excited to announce a host of new option parts for the FF210!
    First up are the LWB (Long wheelbase) Rear suspension arms and Rear suspension arm plates. These extend the wheelbase by 8mm to increase stability and calm the steering. The update works particularly well to increase performance on high grip and for flowing tracks. The rear suspension plate is also mounted with an extra screw to prevent tweak within the suspension arm assembly (that could for example be caused as result of an impact).

    Secondly are steering arms for the DEX210V3's Multi-Axle system. This upgrade enables the car to make a smaller turning radius, increasing the car's performance particularly on tight tracks (such as indoors).
    Last but not least, the introduction of aluminium filled sidepods. These sidepods are stiffer and thus reduce flex, increasing the response of the car and giving a more confidence-inspiring feel to the car. This part also increases stability in high grip conditions.
    All parts have been used with success at recent tests and were used to win the most recent round of the MAC Vlijmen Winterkampioenschap. Pre-order for the parts will be opened soon.

    Another brilliant event was held at the Schumacher Indoor Masters round 4 at Worksop this past weekend. 
    There were 14 heats of entries across the 2 classes of 2wd and 4wd buggy. Once again a huge entry for an event.
    This time the Worksop track crew had designed a very fast and flowing circuit, so lap times were going to be pretty quick!
    Doors opened at the venue at 7AM and there was a huge flow of people entering the sports arena. Many racers keen to get back racing at the venue as we hadn't been able to have an event here since November, this due to the Christmas Holidays. Many drivers had nice new shiny kit to use that they had received for Christmas presents.
    As always the qualifying format was round by round, with the best 2 results to count towards the final and grid position.
    It was Danny McGee on form in 4wd qualifying, just ahead of Jack Neal and James Helliwell.
    In 2wd it was very close between Neil Cragg and Danny McGee all day, with both drivers taking 2 round TQ's each, but Neil having the faster time which would see him line up on pole position. Adam Perei drove superb and would line up a brilliant 3rd on the grid.

    4wd A Final
    1 Danny McGee
    2 James Helliwell
    3 Jack Neal
    4 Billy Fletcher

    • J'ai pu tester le Sakura FFex et la VBC FF 2017. Le test c'est fait sur la piste de Trélissac en Dordogne.
      Pour ce test j'ai voulu comparer avec la Sakura FFex avec la VBC FF 2017 et la référence pour moi: la MTS FF V2.
      Les châssis resteront avec les réglages de boîte, la même carrosserie (Blitz XFR), même pneus (mousse retaillés à 24mm), même motorisation (21.5t) et même servo de direction. Seul le vario change. Il faut bien faire 2 ou trois tours pour chauffer les pneus mousse qui ne sont pas traités ni chauffés.
      La Sakura FF à tendance à planté très fort du train avant et pivoter autour de celui-ci dans les virages serrés et son train arrière ne suit pas et passe devant à chaque coup. Le train avant est beaucoup mais vraiment beaucoup trop souple au niveau des amortisseurs.
      Je trouve ça un peu bizarre qu'il soit aussi souple surtout que sur la version 2014, les ressorts avants étaient plus durs que l'arrière, et que de boîte la 2014 est performante.
      Je fouille dans mes ressorts d'amortisseurs et je monte des ressorts bleus Tamiya (attention, les nouveaux amortisseurs de la FFex sont plus gros en diamètre et que les vieux ressorts que j'ai ne sont pas vraiment adaptés mais ça fera le job pour le test).
      Tout de suite la voiture va beaucoup mieux, le train avant ne plante plus et le train arrière suit sans broncher. Je retrouve le comportement de la FF 2014. 
      Le même comportement mais aussi les mêmes performances que l'ancienne génération. Les chronos pris avec l'ancienne version sont identiques à la nouvelle. Au final, je me dis que les évolutions n'ont rien apporté à la FFex, voir même moins car il faut prévoir des ressorts d'amortisseurs plus durs pour l'avant.
      Bref, un châssis qui marche fort de boîte mais pas mieux que l'ancien. Faudra pousser les réglages la prochaine fois. La VBC, je dirai un peu comme la Sakura, le train avant est trop souple mais moins que sur la FFex, ce qui me permet de rouler quand même tout en étant limite du décrochage du train arrière mais ça passe. J'enroule mais je ne peux pas attaquer. Du coup, je ne peux pas vraiment pousser le châssis dans ses limites. Je tourne avec la VBC 0,2 secondes moins vite en moyenne au tour, à savoir que sur FFEX j'ai changé les ressorts avants et pas sur la VBC. Donc je pense quand durcissant l'avant, elle se montrera identique voir meilleure puisque plus saine de boîte même si moins rapide à cause des ressorts avants. Je fini avec la MTS pour me rendre compte de la différence.
      Et là, le chrono est sans appel, la MTS surclasse largement les deux autres châssis. Elle me permet (avec les réglages de boîte toujours) de tourner une bonne seconde moins vite que les deux autres qui se suivent quasiment.
      Elle parait tellement plus facile à conduire, j'ai l'impression de faire du slot, elle est sur un rail. Là ou les deux autres châssis demande à freiner ou lâcher du gaz  pour passer un virage, La MTS passe avec en gardant du gaz. Elle va vraiment là ou on veut et parait bien plus fluide et facile.
      Autant les deux autres sont performants et faciles (mais faudra jouer sur les réglages pour arriver au niveau d'une MTS de boîte), autant la MTS dégage une grande facilité, on la monte, on roule sans se poser de question, limite "je passais par là et j'ai vu de la lumière" et PAF chrono.
      En fait, la MTS est tellement facile et semble ne jamais forcer, ne jamais attaquer, qu'elle parait beaucoup plus lente. C'est pour ça que j'ai vérifié deux fois les temps au tour pour me rendre compte qu'elle était plus rapide.
      La MTS confirme mon impression depuis le début, c'est LE CHÂSSIS 1/10 traction du moment, beau, pas cher et très performant. Petite conclusion: La MTS est parfaite de boîte, les deux autres châssis devront passer par la case réglage pour accrocher la MTS.
