Default Schumacher CAT SX

REDRC.NET once more got a great scoop - the new Schumacher CAT 4WD buggy, the so-called CAT SX was at last confirmed at the Nuremberg Toyfair today, a poster was all that could be seen, but at least things are definite.





The new car isn't to be shown in public just yet and distributors will be the only ones to see the pre-production car at the show according to recrc.net. We have heard some rumours of what's under that dark sleek silhouette:
  • Triple belt drive
  • Losi wheel fitment
  • Super narrow chassis
  • 4+2 cell arrangement
The car should be unveiled properly later this month - on the track, where it belongs.

original REDRC.NET article is here:

After the Pro Cat the first Schumacher cars I saw were after I started racing in 2002, and they all looked slightly unappealing to me.
This one will hopefully look like SeX tho!

The thing that used to be good about cars like the cat was they were tested in the uk thus we got a car built for grass/astro grip tracks. Other cars were nearly all tested on dirt/blue groove tracks in the us or Japan. I soooo hope this is a great car

The concept of the spring back wing mounts was first used on the top cat i think in about 1989.

those wing mounts were crap then...... lol, I do hope there has been significant investment in NEW parts for this car and not a parts bin special......

Is it a belt drive AE B44 AC Conversion then lol
