I've only just recently developed an interested in Schumacher cars, they just didn't do anything for me whenever they came up for sale in the past. Things are different now though!
This Pro Cat was rescued from ebay for not too much, probably because it doesn't look very pretty in its un-restored state. It's my favourite type of vintage RC model - an ex-racer. Hoooray! It's been fitted with a pair of RW Racing diff pulleys and spur gear adaptor, both of which were common period racing upgrades.
There's nothing particularly special about this car apart from the not very round tyres and the steering servo. For its time this KO Propo servo was the top of the range and cutting edge (well as much as a servo can be anyway). It's a PS87 World Champion Edition, it would have been monumentally expensive when new so whoever raced this car was serious. And it still works :)
I don't recognise the speed controller, it might of been de-cased by the last owner, unfortunately it hasn't aged as well as the servo and is totally dead
