Whoa whoa whoa, let's all chill out with my post. Not once did I call this a bad move by them I said it was disappointing. I find it disappointing that this car has been about for a while now and that the team drivers got them a few days after announcement but yet the parts were not ready for general release. The car doesn't use that many new bits and most are available as spare parts apart from (last night at least) gear box top shocks front. Another disappointing aspect was that most found this out through a model shop email rather than schumacher themselves. I was really hoping mine would be for the regional next week as my KC has a bent chassis and didn't want to order one.

Whether new parts or current parts I imagine Schumacher expect to sell hundreds if not more of these cars I'd be very surprised if they keep that amount of stock in spares, so I'm sure what ever part their having issues with couldn't just be replaced in the hundreds off the shelf.

It's a fact the team drivers got them, 2 of them had them at our 1st reg. It's a fact the car has been around for a while as Yardy said on a podcast they have been testing for some time with it and was at the mkgp. It's a fact the car doesn't use that many new parts. It's a fact that that MB let people know before Schumacher did.
Yes I know it fits and yes have seen it in stock but will not be buying it.

thats the part your post states to be a rumour, and i quoted your post stating that!

i also dont see the issue with there and i quote you "not many new parts" the kc is a very good car, its been refined, not redesigned!

I said the rumour was to around the diff but also said those parts were in stock. I did not say it was the diff.The part I think they are having issues with is the gearbox top shocks front as that is the part that as of yesterday is not in stock.

They're not having an issue with the gearbox tops they are just out of stock, Schumachers website is not live stock levels, and is around 24hrs behind.
I had these arrive on Thursday.

Right so that's my idea blown apart. Although that does mean they are happy to sell a spare they were not happy to put in the kit as when I looked yesterday that was the only piece not listed.

I wouldn't be so desperate to get hold of the new laydown. I've seen a few guys running the car and were really struggling. Some even resulted in putting a KC back end on the car. Seems there's some serious setup work to be done.

Anyway its disappointing to wait longer. Schumacher's customer service has always been excellent.

Again more guess work..

Just let the guys get the part up to quality and release it.

Right so youíll want a kit with a part thatís not up to spec, you wonít know what that part is and it WILL fail. Youíll then blame schumacher...... chill dude

Everyone is different, I love my KC too, itís a weapon..but, a few set up changes (a bit more aggressive than the kit setup) and its definitely faster and easier to drive

Again I didn't say that I said it was disappointing especially after all the delays with the xls.

I think its a good thing that they pulled the date back, people would shout more if there was a bad part in the kit,

Run my KC in L1 rear end spec last week at motor pos 4 and it felt a lot more driveable after a few set up tweaks on high grip EOS type carpet, not sure I would gain hugely by doing to the LD

Very few people know how much of a nightmare it is developing a new product.

If just one minor component is missing or wrong, the whole kit has to be held... Just because parts have come come in to the correct condition previously, doesn't mean every batch will be the same...

QC exists to catch exactly this type of issue, so I'd say Schumacher have acted responsibly in being honest about this... yes its a shame, but I'd imagine they are doing everything they can behind the scenes to get these kits out the door...

After all the last thing they want is excess unsalable stock sitting in their warehouse!!

thats what i thought, just done oople bury and qualified in the c final 3 legs, with kc ran 10th and 6th, swapped to a previously undriven ld and got a 2nd, just felt so easy to drive consistently.
