Original Bolink Digger 10, recently imported from the States.

This is THE car that started it all off for the Schumacher CAT off-road campaign. It is what Schumacher imported / distributed in the very early 1980's until they decided they could do a better job themselves. Along came the the CAT, so very right they were!

Really fast and light so good for a comparitively smooth grass off-road race track, but definitely not so good for larger modern day track jumps! (see the suspension!).

A very rare and very collectable (particulalrly in the States) piece of rc car racing history. It has taken quite some time for me to get my hands on this. All I need now is the time to rejuvenate it back to its former racing glory!

Check out the Model Car magazine from 1982 below, nice hair cut Robin Schumacher!

Big respect to Rich (BiggusDitchus) for owning Bolinks too!

Fantastic. Very fond memories of racing against these with my Mardave Apache, then my Grasshopper (with a few mods)..

Very fast in their time.

There was also a front wheel drive buggy with basic suspension that also flew on smoother tracks. Can't remember what it wad called for the life of me.....

Don`t think i`ve ever seen one like this. Looks like an F1 chassis. Would love to see one in action.
