Schumacher Cougar KR 2WD 1/10 Off-Road Buggy Kit
Schumacher Cougar KR 2WD 1/10 Off-Road Buggy Kit
Wade McGuire - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Tuesday, October 15, 2013
I was super excited for this kit. I currently run the Durango DEX210 and was looking for another buggy to run in the Mod class as the 210 is stock 17.5. Out of the box, the kit is amazing...packaging was well marked and it went together very well. This was the first Schumacher for me so comparing to Durango and Associated, I would say the attention to detail is superb. After the build it was time to run. My set up was: Reedy 10.5 Novak Pulse ESC Specktrum Rec/Radio 5000mah 50c batt/Run all the way rearward. Robinson Pinion 20weight rear 35(Stk) oil front 7000 gear diff oil Pins rear Ribs front First impression: WOW... this car is Stiff!!! With the top plate and Aluminium chassie, this car does not flex. I know I need to get use to the car and what it's tendencies are but the entire night, I was fighting the car rolling, Lawn darting and when I cased a jump, 100% of the time the bounce would result in a flip. After some help from current KR owners I made a few changes 1. Changed to a 13.5 Novak. 2. Installed the Prebuilt Ball diff 3. 22.5 Wgt oil Rear 4. 30 Wgt oil Front 5. realesed the Front top plate pin/hinge-Gives the car a little more flex in the front of the car forward to aft (Side to side still very stiff) 6. Reversed the Front A-arms left and right- seems weird but I can tell you, it works. 5. Pins rear, Changed front the AKA handlebars both closed cell ***Going to change out to the "Soft" front and rear arms**** Second impression: For me, these changes were great! I got the car to hook up smoother without spinning out and overall the car felt a bit more forgiving when I found myself in a bad line or when I misjuged a landing or a corner. I know that all tracks are different and driver style and skill will dictate how the car drives so these are just my thoughts. I would reccomend this car to anyone. For me, this car needed a few tweaks...I know it will be a very good car with a little more time.
