Schumacher CAT SX Rear Shock conversion

Schumacher CAT SX Optional shock layout

New for the CAT SX, Schumacher have released this optional shock layout modification. Developed by the Schumacher design engineers together with their race team, it has benefits for varying types of tracks, however is especially good on very bumpy ones and those with low traction. The set comes with all the parts required to reverse the shock position to mount on the rear of the wishbone and reduce the wheelbase by 6mm. This enables greater rear weight bias, a more angled rear driveshaft and a more rearward wing position. All these things give the car more rear traction, however at the expense of high speed steering on most surfaces. The new 4mm thick carbon fibre camber link bracket included in the pack also allows for multiple link length’s due to its alternate hole positions.
