Certainly a very technical design for a 2wd buggy:P

Wow does any company ever build anything that looks as nice as the Schumacher cars look. They look like art work.:nod: Still wish Schumacher was still in the US like back in the day as I more than likely would still be running nothing but Schumacher cars.:nod:

Damn it! I haven't even built my KF yet. SMH!

I really did like my KF when I had it. I struggled a little bit if the track wasn't perfect, but when it was there wasn't a faster car around the track. I may just have to get one of these and try it out again especially with all the updates.

I couldn't agree more and "we" ARE still here in the US haha. I love my K1. It makes me look better as a driver honestly. And they are pretty for sure. I thought about running a 22-4 or a B44 but I couldn't get the Schumacher out of my head. I've wanted one since I was a kid but couldn't afford one. I figured why not. I found a hell of a deal on a used one. I will buy a new kit next. Once they make enough changes to their wheeler. Until then I'm going to keep running what I've got. This thing is tough too. It's pretty great in every way just like they've always been. I'm sure this one won't be any different. ;)

Looking forward to this car.
At first I thought the low grip belts and lipo locators are not included, but it seems like out of box, both options are there!

Good ole Cecil, its amazing to see what making a few parts for your childs car can turn into.

AC Driver 01-29-2015 09:14 AM

The kits are available as of today I was told. Get um while they are hot.

jpcopeland1 01-29-2015 11:10 AM

Will be my next purchase middle of next month. Have always wanted to get another Schumacher, this is the one I want.

hairymuffin 01-29-2015 02:57 PM

with this new kit,does this mean the low grip chassis is not needed? all the hopup parts turned me off from this car,so I stuck to my kr
