The Schumacher TOP CAT "Classic" 1/10 2WD Off-Road Buggy Kit is an authentic replica of the iconic model that revolutionized 2WD buggy racing in the late 80’s. The TOP CAT Classic uses many parts created from the original molds, with a couple of small updates that allow LiPo fitment and increased durability. The design incorporates the same innovative features that made the kit popular in the 80's, including laydown front shocks with crashback system.
The TOP CAT Classic is perfect for historic buggy racing or as memorabilia from the golden age of electric buggy racing. The TOP CAT won the 1989 EFRA European Championships with Jamie Booth, and started a long line of successful Schumacher 2WD buggies, which are still winning races today.
