Schumacher K196 Alloy Chassis Mi8 Touring Car Kit



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 centre 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 optimised for carpet racing, or a carbon fibre 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 fibre 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 - Anti Roll Bar design to further lower centre of gravity.

New - Ultra fine adjustment eccentrics for optimum belt tension.

New - Lower bumper mount moulding preventing touching down on track.

New - Black Alloy turnbuckles for weight reduction and improved lower centre of gravity.

New - Ackerman steering arms for refined steering feel.
