The Schumacher Cougar KD 2WD 1/10 Off-Road Buggy was designed for low traction dirt tracks. After a great performance at the European Off-Road Championships in Spain the KD prototype proved its pedigree. Both cars qualified for the ‘A’ Main, with Michal Orlowski finishing 3rd on the podium. The KD has the adjustability to be set up perfectly, from loose dirt to hard packed clay tracks as well as other low grip surfaces. Whether tight and twisty or open and flowing - the Cougar KD, takes dirt seriously.

Schumacher Cougar KD 2WD 1/10 Off-Road Buggy Kit (Dirt)
Been building and racing kits since 1986.

This is by far the easiest kit I've built! Lately, I've built Associated, Losi, Serpent and the way they truly put each step in a small bag is awesome. I don't always get much time so I could build a small part of it and come back without having to leave everything out.
I have not raced it yet but everything went together really well.

Amazing fit and finish. High quality materials through out. Kinda chunky at 1600g but you can get the carbon chassis to reduce about 70g. Overall great kit. Very pleased coming from AE to this.

I have been racing R/C for the better part of 20 years: This might be the best buggy Schumacher has produced. The build was smooth, very clear instructions, no real fitment issues or quality control problems with small parts broken or missing etc.. Aluminum transmission case and oversize gears and ball diff is the nicest I have ever had experience with, it leads the pack hands down. Would be nice if the chassis protective film was included but whatever.
