Selling toys is what enables Schumacher to make race cars. Without the profit from sales of "toys" you don't get the investment in race models. BTW for an awful lot of people the XLS and Topcat are the only models that that interest them. According to Schumacher the XLS had the highest number of preorders than any other Schumacher model.

It's a bit of nostalgia for me, but these were my first Schumacher cars back in the day, also these were my first competitive race cars as before it was the Tamiya Hotshot and Hornet
