Hi everyone, i received this from a friend at work. His son used to race this and a Kyosho Lazer ZXR in the late nineties. He gave me everything including a pit box and crate full of spare wheels and loads of spare parts for both. I always wanted a CAT for my collection and the ZXR was the icing on the cake! Fibre-Lyte make a carbon chassis i may be tempted to buy, but at the mo i will check everything, i think it needs the pulley tensioner new wheels and shell. I'm no expert on Schumacher but if anyone has any hints or tips and can tell me if i have the correct model that would be greatly appreciated!!

Judging by the laydown shocks and motor heatsinks I think this is a CAT 2000EC-basically a 4wd FireBlade 2000. As I remember these also had the alloy shock bodies and slipper clutch in pictures 5 and 7 as standard, but the purple alloy shock seal housings are a Schumacher hop-up which almost everyone was too tightfisted to buy at the time. You've done well getting this, if you look on the Schumacher website you'll probably be able to still get a lot of spares!!!

Hi HOTSHOT III, thanks for the info. I see your bike mad too, just like me! I have an 04 Fireblade which is locked up until next year. I need to contact Schumacher regarding some bits they don't have listed on their site, hope they can help because i'm really looking forward to getting this up and runningand see how it compares to the Turbo Optima MID and B44.
