Schumacher Cougar KF2 mid motor conversion

Schumacher Cougar KF2 mid motor conversion

New from Schumacher comes the mid motor conversion for the Cougar KF2 2WD buggy. The conversion moves the motor cluster back by 19mm and puts the LiPo battery in front of the motor. The included carbon fibre chassis accepts all motor positions, standard, low grip and mid as well as all LiPo layouts. The shift gives the KF2 more rear traction and allows the power to be transmitted easier into forward bite and acceleration. This means that racing on low and medium traction conditions such as dirt and sandy/dusty astro just got easier. The chassis accepts normal height shorty LiPos, to maximise traction on very low grip conditions a low profile battery could be used. The body requires a small modification to clear the spur and side gear cover and a modified body is readily available.

Swiss 1/8th Off-road Championship Rd4 – Report

Round four of the Swiss 1/8th Off-road Championship was held at the multi-surface track of the Valceresio Racing Team in Viggiu. The track offers at least four different surfaces including different grades of astro turf as well as challenging elevation changes and jumps which makes setup crucial. Around 100 drivers signed in for the Expert and Amateur classes. The 45-minute main final of the Expert class saw some very intense racing in the opening minutes when the top positions got mixed up. Jeremy Pittet lost some places and valuable time but got back into the lead later although he had to pit more often than second placed Robin Frischkopf who had to defend his position against Patrick Hofer and Joachim Kallen. At the end Jeremy brought home the win in front of Robin who was 12 seconds clear of Patrick in 3rd place.
