Schumacher Top Cat Classic 2WD buggy re-release kit

Schumacher have announced the forthcoming release of the Top Cat Classic 2WD re-release buggy kit. First introduced back in 1988 the Top Cat was Schumacher’s first 2WD buggy kit and it came hot on the heels of the World Championship winning CAT XLS 4WD buggy, that was introduced two years before in 1986. With a couple of small updates for LiPo fitment and durability, the 2018 Top Cat Classic uses many of the original mouldings, and incorporates all of the innovative features such as laydown front shocks with crashback system. 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. The kit is set for a release in December.
