Default 4 Hr VINTAGE ENDURO-Melbourne/Australia

Last year Antony and the Knox club in Melbourne Australia put on a 2 hour vintage buggy enduro. The event was so much fun they have decided to put it on again only this time doubling the race time to 4 hours.
I have been working on a couple of buggies to take down to the event and still am not sure which car to enter. I'll be in Melbourne for 5 days so Im sure i'll get plenty of running in that time. The event will be held this coming Sunday at the Knox club but we'll be there turning a few practice laps out leading up to the event. When i return I will update the post and hopefully add some fresh pics too. Cheers-Jason.

I'm just a 'vintage' guy, but I am now looking at building a competitive Cougar 2 runner

But seriously, we entered a team the other year in an 8 hour endurance race, which was pretty much made up of RC10 tub cars and we didn't embarrass ourselves Running agains modern 2 and 4wds

I also just finished 3rd with my tub at our last Indoor regional

My Cougar2 at the back of the line up is a Works model and Im running Core5000 lipo and 13.5 GTB. It wont get entered into the enduro but I'll be runing it over the 5 days Im donw there. In my opinion, racing an old RC10 is the easiest option but if you want to win in style i reckon the Schueys are gold. Ive been trying to race a modded Topcat for a while now and while the car is fast in a straight line the steering is a real issue along with recovery from some jumps. The Cougar2 just eats that car alive. so how goes your search for a Cougar2 so far?

I ran a 4900 lipo and Nosram 6.5 in the RC10 - it was FAST

I have a couple of Cougar 2's already and a Cougar 1, I just need to make one good one out of them and find some spares - can't race without spares

I'd imagine there would be no shortage of Schumacher spares in the U.K. God knows how much ive bought from over there. If you get stuck on anything drop me a PM and I will see what I can do to help you out. Atleast Kamtec has repro bodies for you.
