The TOP CAT Classic is an authentic replica of the iconic TOP CAT which revolutionised 2WD buggy racing in the late 80’s.
With a couple of small updates for LiPo fitment and durability, the TOP CAT Classic uses many of the original mouldings, and incorporates all of the innovative features such as laydown front shocks with crashback system.
The TOP CAT won the 1989 EFRA European Championships with Jamie Booth, and started a long line of successful Schumacher 2WD buggies, which are still winning races today.
The TOP CAT Classic is perfect for historic buggy racing or as memorabilia from the golden age of electric buggy racing.
