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 - 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 centre of gravity.
New - Ultra lightweight and low centre 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 centre of gravity, durability, ease of assembly and narrower mounting pitch for improvements to geometry and flexibility.
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.
New - Optional Mass damping compatibility within each wishbone (x4). 
New - 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 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 fibre 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 moulded bellcranks with adjustable travel stops.
-LiPo retention mouldings. No tape required.
-Rebuildable, super durable steel double joint driveshafts.
