bosscat for me. the woven chassis just looked mint when it came out. and i also lapped Bren Ralls the club champion with it in my first meeting. The following week there were quite a few Bosscats!!

I really loved the cat 2000 too. i still have mine with full titanium and alloy kit. I dug it out when i returned to the hobby in 2004. It handled amazing at my local track, beat most of the local guys with a 19t in it, it couldn't handle much more power than that!!

I ran the cougar 2 for a long time, and at the time it was the best 2wd car you could buy. i remember running at L.U.T club at Leigh, and at the church in Chorley with Rib spike being choice of tyre on front and spike at the back. WOW those where the days.

It has to be the fireblade evo2 and the Cat 3000 for me. I still didnt really get good results from the cars though.

I have to say my favourite is the Cougar 2. Awesome buggy and I still have my original, and even a couple of second ones for spares and sorting out the original. Awesome handling buggy, and I certainly preferred the handling of the Cougar 2 over the Fireblade Evo. Why don't we see metal pans in 2wd any more? I think the low CoG and strength is well worth the little extra weight.

This isn't my cougar 2, just someone's from Schumacher website. I thought I'd need to stick a pretty photo to illustrate my favourite.
This Cougar2 doesnt just belong to someone from the Schumacher forum-ITS MINE-
All of the Schumacher buggies are excellent cars.They all perform diffently in different parts of the world.They certainly used to be race pedegree,thats for sure!

When I first started out I use to race a Cat XL and upgraded it to a XLS and finally a procat. I also ventured into 2wd with a Cougar as well. With the Cat the MMS diffs and RW spur gears/slipper clutches were better and smoother than Schumachers upgrades.

Also I tried a YZ10 with a CAT XLS front end on it? Does anybody remember the Cat fighter? A few of us tried this out at the old Toddington race track in Bedfordshire.

damn, those pics bring back great memories! sweet topcat with black chassis...and the bosscat works(had one)...and the cat xls(had one) i liked the cougar 2000 '95 full carbon, was never convinced by the SACS front end though. i want by bosscat back! handled great with loads of front grip, if only the drivetrain was more efficient i would have never bothered to get a pred!

I had a Procat and I loved every bit of it but it has to be the Bosscat, for me.
I've done hundred of runs on mine and also won my first race with it.
I remember when they first came out, red anodising was sooo sexy, along with the then new slipper, beautiful front arms, lovely CF and flat rims... the bomb.

Differential smoothess was incredible, specially with the special telescopic alloy dogbones. Aaaah, memories

My fave is the CAT XLS...it was really a great handling buggy. The Procat ain't too bad either...wanted to get a Bosscat but bought a Yokomo Works 91 instead...nowhere near as good as the CAT XLS and Procat...
