The Schumacher CAT revolutionized off-road racing when it was introduced in 1986, being years ahead of the competition. It became an international success winning British, European, Japanese, Australian, and American championships. It was updated with a longer wheelbase and Masami Hirosaka went on to win the 1987 1/10th 4WD IFMAR World Championships in Romsey, England. We are now excited to offer this iconic replica of the car that Masami used to win the first of his many World Championships, and put Schumacher Racing on the map as a leading RC car manufacturer.

  • Unique integrator system offering adjustable torque split between front and rear.
  • Double wishbone suspension with massive travel.
  • Full replica decal set.
  • Alloy coil over oil filled shock absorbers.
  • Huge steering lock to handle the tightest tracks.

Schumacher CAT XLS "Masami" 1/10 4WD Off-Road Buggy Kit
The first problem with this kit is the screws which are junk. The eccentrics were not similar so the rear belts ran off to the side (had to buy more eccentrics to make correct). When assembled, the right front tire had 5 degrees negative camber while the left was 1.5 (upper mounts not molded the same length). Driveshafts are covered in flash including this INSIDE of sliders which required making a cutting blade to cleanup. The included springs are 6lb which is ridiculously stiff. I waited 28 years to get one of these, bought 2 of them with full carbon kits, and am sadly disappointed. This is really a poor way to pay tribute to someone of Masami Hirosaka's notoriety.)

Schumacher CAT XLS "Masami" 1/10 4WD Off-Road Buggy Kit
This kit was a bit of a challenge to build. First of all it was missing two parts but a main made it right.Sent me replacement part fast.also make sure you have a sodering iron because you will need it for front stablizer lol.anyway also make sure you cut the underpan right.This part is very important and if you don't cut it right. It will come back to haunt you later.last thing unless you have shorty packs.You will have a to probably cut holes in the body to get a stick pack to fit 2s or 3s.other then that this kit is made well and easy to build because every step is put in separate bags.)
