Talk about rare as rocking-horse do-do.... I've been searching for one of these for more than 10 years!!!! I very nearly bought a used one a while back for about twice what I paid for this.... so I'm well chuffed! Found in South Korea of all places, but at US$0.99 plus $15 postage, I wasn't saying no!!!


For the uninitiated, this is a Schumacher Panther body. Part no. U562R for the Nitro 10 chassis. With this body and truck wheels and tyres, the Nitro 10 was legal for 1:8 buggy racing.


I have to check and see if this is the same body as that specified for the Nitro 4x4 buggy, which was part no. U5029F but looks very similar.


Big thanks to Jeroen for pointing this out to me..... appreciate it matey!!

What's in the bag???? Hmmmm, those decals look familiar... Finally!!! Body shot More shots Very happy to get this!!!! Decals...

How was this mounted to the nitro chassis mate, just got back into RC and picked up a Panther with new body but no mounting options

There are no mounting options.... body posts in the rear, and friction fit around the front shock tower. Good system!

hi mate, been a few years, hope all is well your way,
was there a buggy front bumper option, i have a TC and truck versions, also do you know if there was any build differences between versions, i remember there was spacers under the the front mount, where it meets the chassis depending on TC, Truck or buggy ?? but can't remember if there was anything else

Buggy only ever used the standard front arm mount as a bumper, same as the Cougar series. There are spacers, depending on which build you do. Have sent you a message via the showroom 'contact' button ... hopefully we can get caught up over e-mail, and I can send you the manuals you need to get these cars done.
