Nuremberg 2010 – Schumacher Racing


Schumacher Racing as always were present at Nuremberg showing their own range of cars as well as the Core-RC product line and Speed Passion electronics. Although we had details and images of the Cougar SV 1:10 off-road electric buggy before the show opened, we respected Schumacher’s request to not post details or images here on until the show’s opening day, Thursday. We have to say though, seeing this new 2wd buggy for real bring it home how much effort and time has been invested in the car, it is sure to push the 2wd electric market on a notch, check out the images below. Packed with innovative features such as the transmission which allows adjustable differential height, gull wing style wishbones which allow low shock towers, a clever reversed bellcrank steering system which keeps all linkages parallel, the list goes on and on. Success has been quick with Simon Moss taking a recent BRCA Indoor Champs win and we can’t wait to get our hands on our promised review sample.

Also shown in addition to Schumacher’s established range which includes the Havoc and Fusion was a new version of the CAT SX called the SXII. Featuring a raft of updates including stronger wishbones and new big-bore shocks as featured on the Cougar SV, some materials have been revised such as plastic moulded parts being used in place of some of the alloy parts in non-critical areas such as the eccentric belt adjusters which locate the diffs. The good news with this is that the SXII will now come at you with a lower street price and better performance over the previous incarnation of the CAT
