As you may have noticed, normally I don’t post about new parts unless they are something exceptional, but as the Cougar KF is my ideal 2wd buggy, I couldn’t resist. You see I have a list of requirements for a buggy in my head, and the KF ticks them all with ease. The only part of it I was not familiar with was the Carbon Fiber chassis, which isn’t a bad thing, just a chassis material that i’m not versed with, but I could have leaned to live with.
However today Schumacher have released an Alloy chassis for the Cougar KF, thus ticking the last box in my mental list. The details from Schumacher are as follows:
U4622 – Alloy Chassis KF
Stiffer with a lower centre of gravity for better corner speed and stability. Supports standard motor position and low grip position.
