I was told last night by Schumacher that it will probably be the tail end of next week.

As of yesterday I was told the new part(s) are with Schumacher. So they need to be checked out. Assuming they pass Q.C then they'll then start packing kits, so fingers crossed the wait is nearly over.

There are a few things I'm not to sure with this kit at the mo. Don't like the screws they give you for the pistons and the fact you have to modify the rear wishbones if you want to run the diff in its lowest position.

Far more secure and less chance of losing a piston off a rod, I use a med loctite (blue) and let it go off and arrowmax multi tool to hold the shaft, fitted them to my l1 when they came out and have been fine, also used by other manutacures.
Only need to remove a very small amount of material, defo no loss in strength.

I'm fine with the screw on piston it's the counter sunk screw with no recess in the piston for it. But it's the fact you have to remove it to use low diffs.

No need for a recess in the piston mine got a good bite to secure them., as said it's a small amount, I'd rather do that and have arms that fit both cars, maybe schumacher will do the mod on further production arms,

Aldi have a good dremel style tool on offer soon, 16 quid 3 year warranty

Have you built yours yet, or are you just anti schumacher?

Ive got a dremel sitting in my toolbox at work it's just bits like this shouldn't need doing on a top line car. Didn't have to do it on the kc and that used arms from a older car to. Didn't have to do it on the 6.1 when running the b64 arms.

Dremmeling things to get them to fit is a bit crap

They fit fine...... just as said a very small amount of material needs removing in low diff position only. It's only where the drive shaft pin may rub.

Far from anti Schumacher, I've had most 2wd from the club10 up to the kc, missed out the sv line as wasn't racing at the time after having our 1st child. But I'm also not going to be a fanboy of them and blindly look over faults they have.
