Schumacher Cougar KC 2WD 1/10 Off-Road Buggy Kit (Carpet/Turf)
Very impressed with the overall build quality of this buggy. I had one small issue during the build with a steering post not being threaded properly. Amain got me the part quickly to take care of the issue. On my AstroTurf track this thing rips just with the stock kit setup. Can't wait to start dialing it in.

1. What you get in the box at the sale price is as good as it gets.

2. Tolerances and parts finish is superb. I have wanted to build a Schumacher kit since the 80's. Super easy build, every step is in its own bag, you never waste a second looking for what size screw goes where (looking at you AE).

3. Curb weight is a bit high. The aluminum pieces for the tranny are brilliant works of art, but could probably be 'less' in terms of thickness to drop some grams. This likely applies to the chassis as well but I didn't actually weigh it. Domestic plastic designs look inferior as you build it, but lets be honest, they work pretty darn well, and are crazy light.

4. Carbon fiber shock towers, and other carbon fiber pieces, are the best I have ever seen in a manufacturer's kit. Plenty of them in all of the right places, but not a enough to offset the overall design with respect to weight savings.

5. Shocks are awesome. They use E clips, really not a big deal. My son (age 10), was wondering why they had those cool fused hinge pins for the rear which are a combination of a regular hinge pin + a fused hex head on the end, but did not have a threaded shock shaft ready to accept a cap head screw (like AE). I told him, change is expensive.

6. I am running position 4 on a tight indoor clay track that is maybe 80 x 50 feet. Adjusted oil dampening in the front to be about 35 wt. The 50 wt is strictly for high traction carpet. The belt drive will likely be upgraded to a lay down in the future. Only been out racing with it once. Most recently I ran SCT (6.1) that my son now races. It was an adjustment, but you can't break new tires in on the 1st day. Used to run a B5M Lite a few years ago.

7. The final drive ratio is not a big deal if you adjust your pinion and spur.

8. Probably not for beginners, belt tension, etc.. Parts ARE readily available from amain, but if you break and miss the main at your local track (no one else stocks parts), you probably will have a bad day. I do this for fun, so not an issue for me.

9. Cool factor is undeniable.

10. See #1.

Schumacher Cougar KC 2WD 1/10 Off-Road Buggy Kit (Carpet/Turf)
Amazing kit, was fun to build and REALLY does nicely on the carpet. WOULD recommend to anyone looking for a high speed carpet track kit. I ran mine in position 2. seems flawless. front end is durable, especially with the nut guard. Rear A-arms are the only thing I have broken (twice) I would like to see a slight re-design on that but would not steer you away from it because of it. they are VERY easy to work on. Kudo's to the Schumacher team. (parts arrive in 3 days from the U.K.)

Schumacher Cougar KC 2WD 1/10 Off-Road Buggy Kit (Carpet/Turf)
This car, although soon to be discontinued, is a major force on carpet, handling is incredible and predictable, fit and finish is top quality, support and customer service was better than most. I did have an issue with the threaded portion on one of the drive shafts, a quick call to technical support and 2 days later i had 2 new drive shafts. Thank you Amain and thank you Schumacher for a competitive car straight out of the box.

Schumacher Cougar KC 2WD 1/10 Off-Road Buggy Kit (Carpet/Turf)
Coming from Team Associated, TLR and Tekno, this is a very different creature. It was a very straight forward and clean build. Quality and fitment are very good. While some parts, like the turnbuckle, seem too light, they are very durable and strong. Still messing with setup, but this thing flies around the carpet track. Extremely adjustable. Probably one of the most tunable cars I've ever worked on.
