The Cougar Laydown is lower, lighter, easier to maintain, and faster!
It is a very versatile platform, with outstanding performance on a wide range of grip levels, from carpet, astro and dirt.
The Laydown has been developed by the Schumacher Engineering and racing team who have won multiple international races, including the prestigious EOS series.
That race winning knowledge and experience has been applied to every detail of the Laydown’s design to make a fast, easy to drive, and user friendly 2WD buggy that can take you to the top of the podium.
