Back in 1987, I was in secondary school in Singapore. I manged to persuade my parents to get me a Hotshot the year before. I wanted something more race oriented even though I have never raced and will likely never see any track time. Well, I did see track time but that was nearly 20 years in the making. Anyway, I managed to pester my folks to purchase an Optima Mid which I still have until today. Shortly after that acquisition, I heard that the Mid had taken second place in the worlds. Very impressive. Who was the culprit that beat my beloved Mid ? Non other than this Schumacher Cat that I'd never even heard of. The car that beat my Mid. Much hate. If not for this car, the Mid would have world champion. Fast forward to 2017, the CAT XLS was re released. I purchased 1 kit on a whim, did not purchase any hop ups at all. Left it in the store for years until last month. Saw some Youtube videos of Masami driving a re re CAT XLS. Decided that it was finally time to make an attempt on the CAT XLS. Started with the body
This was a car that growing up I was never really bothered about but when news came it the re release I had to have this for my collection which includes vintage Egress, Avante 2001, Top Force Evo, Dynastorn, YZ10-94 and a MR4-BX Worlds. Being used to Tamiya level of quality I was somewhat disappointed with the finish of some parts, soldering of the roll bar, and how the steering is very stiff no smooth or ballraced. But understanding this is a 80s design.
Hello everyone, I search a comparison about this two cars : Schum Cat XLS Masami vs Tam Egress. I search a vintage car to run on astrostuff and carpet. In the beginning I thunk the Egress is a good car not perfect like a Top Force but good enough for astro and carpet. It’s easy to find videos of an Egress built and videos of the Egress runs on-road or on a parking. But it’s difficult to find a video of a run of an Egress on real off-road track. It’s easier to find videos on real offroad track of a Cat XLS (especially with Masami) and in this videos the chassis seems so perfect. Can you give me your opinion about this 2 cars, please ? Thank you for your answer. I hope you understand me... my english it isn’t perfect, sorry
