So the romours floating around the Web are the delay is regarding the diff,being either the plastic cross pin (in stock on there website) or the outdrive(also in stock on there page). If true very disappointing as the gear diff is a old part of the KR and the alloy gear pins are also avaliable.

Got told at the weekend by a good source that the diff gears for the kits were made in the wrong material causing excessive wear. i.e manufacturing cock up, Still better they caught it before release.

Again a part they have in stock. The gears are from the kf so would say plenty in stock. Disappointing still.

Surely a short delay is better than unhappy customers further down the road

Dear Customers,

Thank you for patiently waiting for the release of the new Cougar Laydown. We had hoped that we would be releasing cars around this time. Unfortunately the final part to be manufactured has been unexpectedly rejected by our Quality Control department. We took the difficult decision to get this part 100% correct rather than sending out a slightly substandard product that would not meet our extremely high standards. This means there will be a delay in releasing cars to the general public through our dealer network. We are hoping this delay will be short but could be approx 2-3 weeks.

Please accept our sincere apologies for this delay.

Schumacher Racing.

That's fine but this car is a parts bin special with very little in the way of new parts and the hold up is with one of the older parts is not a great start.

i fail to see why you think its bad that a manufacture is not sending out a kit with faulty parts, as you claim its only "romours??" floating round

In a way I think this is a good move for Schumacher
Their Customer Service is next to none, full stop
As they said, they took the hard decision to delay its release !!

Just ask yourself Matt, if they'd released the car ( to you ), it failed first or second run, how much bitching would you be doing then

I'm with Mark Christopher on this one, Why would you want a car with an inferior part that's just crazy. Thumbs up to schumacher for finding the problem before release.
