This is my 1/10th scale NIB Graupner 'SYSTEMS' catamaran that I picked up from Ebay in 2016/17 for approximately $250.00 USD. It is a scale replica of the 1:1 1986 World Champion Cougar Cat powered by twin 750 horsepower Mercruiser engines that was owned/driven by Bob Kaiser and Errol Lanier in the 1980's. It's definitely in my top three all-time favorite r/c cats. My fascination with now-vintage fast electric r/c boats started around the time I got my first Hornet back in the '80's so both r/c cars and boats have been an equal passion of mine since then and I have quite a few in my collection. I started with an MRP Fast Cat back then while only one childhood friend of mine had one of these but I never saw it run. Unlike the vintage MRP boats, these kits require assembly, paint and are much higher quality which I didn't know BITD. It also requires the addition of the correct Graupner motors and single drive unit ('surface drive') which I also found a few years ago for approximately $50.00. I have a runner awaiting completion and these are quite rare to this will remain NIB. Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy.32 Nice picture of it running on the box. 29 30 41 32 30 44 Everything is in great shape. 22 Twin motors/single drive. 27 1:1 in Key West, Florida - '87
