Default What should Schumacher re release next?

I know the Cat had only just been released but when I was talking to Robin I asked what was next on the list and he asked what I thought. I would love a Procat re re but that's me.
He did say they could carry on and do the 30th anniversary of all there cars but as they were working on the next step of the modern arm of the Schumacher line up so didn't have any plans as yet.
What would be your choice of the older cars to be re released?

This is just for fun by they way

Cougar two works would look great next to my XLS ! So that's my vote, I would however love a Procat as I used to run one back in the day when I was a kid

Procat is easy with just a saddle chassis really on the xls. Topcat is favourite for me but sensible option says the chassis with extra works gearbox holes and topcat front shocks gives a great 3 car potential.

I was talking about this with someone yesterday. If I was a betting man, my money would be on Topcat or Cougar. Procat is the easiest, as it shares many parts of course, but still a few different - rear end, front gearbox housing, bumper and chassis. I think it's too similar though to be popular with the punters though.

A Topcat and a Cougar have some shared bits with the xls - shocks, driveshafts etc. Which in theory might make them easier projects to do. Time will tell I guess.

Doing either 2 inch tyres, or 2.2 inch wheels would be a no brainer for me as well.

Cougar2 Works for me. I use to race one back in the day for a short time. Unfortunately left it in a lock up garage I once rented so someone had a lucky find...

Anything 2WD would be a good addition. And indeed, 2.0" minispikes!

I voted for the Topcat since it was the first proper 2wd (I dont think the cat XL 2wd really counts).
The topcat was really intrresting with its laydown shocks and crashback system. Perhaps Schumacher would relese the parts to convert to cougar.

As far as re releasing any of the later cat familiy: procat, bosscat
I'm doubtfull of the success of this.
Most of the parts can be released as speed secrets. The new transmission is allready superior to the bosscats. Really only leaving One way drive shafts, and rear suspension. The rest is cosmetic (bottom chassis plate, body, wheels) and all available elsewhere... (fibrelyte, penguin, JCracing).

I do have a wishlist of speed secrets:


Alloy layshaft brackets; ballraced steering; one way driveshafts.

Have I missed any?

Surprised not to see a few tooling witnesses on xls parts, i.e. No tension bar slot in front transmission for Procat and no wishbone pivot in front upright for xl - I thought they would have included a few such features for flexibility in future

I voted Procat, because I have one, but now I regret and wish I had voted Topcat. It's clearly the one to go for in my opinion.
