From Schumacher:
Introducing the new Schumacher Mi8 1/10th Touring Car.

2021 BRCA National Stock Champion.

The Schumacher Mi8 – design and engineering excellence.

The Mi8 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.

Available with an alloy chassis optimized for carpet racing, or a carbon fiber chassis perfectly suited to asphalt.

  • New – 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.
  • New – Twin upper suspension link design with improved flexibility characteristics and tuning of castor. Mi7 Single upper wishbone option included for simplified build.
  • New – Front body height limit control included in the kit with a lightweight and simple layout.
  • New – 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.
  • New – Top deck design.  Highly developed flexibility with multiple integration options to the motor mount providing fast but smooth handling out of the box.
  • New – Motor mount.  Provides increased fore/aft stiffness of the chassis, while maintaining the desired torsional stiffness for stable handling.
  • New – Vastly shortened shock absorber design and new mounting layout allowing for super low center of gravity.
  • New – Ultra lightweight and low center of gravity one piece servo mount. Increases steering trim reliability.
  • New – Horizontal rear body mounting option included.
  • New – Easier access front spool and rear differential.
  • New – 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.
  • New – Anti Roll Bar design to further lower center of gravity.
  • New – Ultra fine adjustment eccentrics for optimum belt tension.
  • New – Lower bumper mount molding preventing touching down on track.
  • New – Black Alloy turnbuckles for weight reduction and improved lower center of gravity.
  • New – Ackerman steering arms for refined steering feel.
  • New – Optional Mass damping compatibility within each wishbone (x4).
  • New – Rear black anodized driveshaft bones with improved tolerance and durability.
  • 28 precision ball raced bearings.
  • “O” ring retained alloy wheel hexes.
  • Hollow, precision steel layshaft.
  • Precision hard anodized 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 New 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 center 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 center, 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 moldings. No tape required.
  • Rebuildable, super durable steel double joint driveshafts.
  • Low profile threaded insert. Eliminates the need for nuts.
