    RE: schumacher manic

    They are great; I've got one here in the UK but I've heard that since Schumacher closed their American branch HQ in Florida, parts are more difficult to get hold of.  I don't know how true that is though.  If, however, you've got an LHS that orders or holds spares then I wouldn't worry.  The servo horn for the steering will need upgrading to an alloy one probably; mine came from the factory stripped, and the first (plastic) replacement lasted less than one run.  I don't know why; there is nothing at all wrong with the servo saver and at the time it was being run-in (on-road).  Using an alloy one is fine though.  You'll probably want to upgrade the radio gear to a 2.4 system at some point too; they only come RTR and the factory 27mHz gear isn't anything to write home about.

    They are awesome fun though; tough, brilliant handling, powerful.  There are some good vid's on Youtube if you want to see what they are like properly tuned and thrashed...

    RE: schumacher manic

    I would really like to buy on of these, from what Schumacher has told me they quit making them because they couldn't make a profit on them. Anyone know where I can buy one?
