Arrow Schumacher CAT SX - 1/10 4WD Competition Buggy


Here we have more information on the new CAT SX Competition 4WD Off-Roader that we announced at the recent Nurnberg Toy Fair.

You can now see some of the exceptional details the Schumacher designers have been working on for this new innovative car.

We hope the car will be available for early summer. The large amount of testing that has taken place, shows it will be well worth the wait!!!



















Here are further spec details we are now able to release;

Transmission


3 belt transmission with efficient low tension belts running on large size CNC machined pulleys.

Adjustable internal transmission ratio (2.4, 2.6, or 2.8:1) to optimise ratio for brushed or brushless motors.

Motor rotates the same direction as the wheels creating a car with superb jumping responsiveness and no torque steer effect as is common with shaft drive cars.

Super free ball diffs with silicone nitride balls, pro spec thrust bearing, and lightened steel outputs.

Strong steel universal joint driveshafts.

Smooth twin pad slipper clutch with easy access adjustment.

Unique clamp motor mount to fine tune weight distribution, and allow motor changes without affecting gear mesh.

Industry standard wheel fittings.

Eccentric bearing housings for adjustment of belt tension and diff height.

Layshaft or front one way option. Overdrive front pulley option.

Internal gear cover.


Chassis


Optimum weight distribution with ‘4+2’ NiMh batteries or stick pack lipo layout.

2.5mm aerospace grade carbon fibre chassis and top deck.

Horizontally split transmission housings for ease of maintenance and diff access.

Ultra narrow chassis design to minimise grounding on roll.

Rigid servo mount directly onto transmission housing for precise steering.

Dirt protected with tight fitting body and undertray.

O ring wing mount system to avoid crash damage.

Purple titanium turnbuckles included.


Suspension


Class leading suspension geometry with durable components and a huge range of adjustments to set up your CAT to any track conditions.

Adjustable rear roll centres, inboard toe-in/toe-out, anti squat and track width.

Adjustable front roll centres, inboard toe-in/toe-out, track width and rake angle.

Pro spec shocks with titanium nitride shafts, CNC machined pistons with recessed ‘e’clips, threaded collars, twin O ring sealing and diaphragm volume compensation.

Strong and rigid 4mm carbon fibre shock brackets.


Please be aware these are prototype shots and some details are subject to change.


K078 - CAT SX 4WD Off-Road (4x2 NiMh) - £349.99

K079 - CAT SX 4WD Off-Road (Lipo) - £349.99

WOW!! Looks great, although I know some guys will question the 3 belt drivetrain-although I really don't see any issues with it. Really does look incredible.

Default Nice

Nice buggy, great design, and excellent engineering. Remember everyone made fun of the Losi XX 4 three belt design. Hmmmmmm what goes around comes around. This looks like an improvement over the XX 4 which is still competitive today.

I sold my Cat 3000 a few months ago not planning on running 4 wheeler. This might make me change my mind.
