    The Schumacher CAT revolutionised off road racing when it was introduced in 1986, being years ahead of the competition.
    It became an international success winning British, European, Japanese, Australian, and American championships.
    It was updated with a longer wheelbase and Masami Hirosaka went on to win the 1987 1/10th 4WD IFMAR World Championships in Romsey, England. 
    We are now excited to offer this iconic replica of the car that Masami used to win the first of his many World Championships, and put Schumacher Racing on the map as a leading RC car manufacturer.

    The CAT XLS Masami features:
    - Ball differentials, which had been invented by Cecil Schumacher in 1978.
    - Unique integrator system offering adjustable torque split between front and rear.
    - Double wishbone suspension with massive travel.
    - Alloy coil over oil filled shock absorbers.
    - Full replica decal set.
    - Huge steering lock to handle the tightest tracks.
    - Front O ring ‘crashback’ system to minimise front end crash damage.
    - Compact design with low polar moment of inertia and low centre of gravity gives the CAT remarkable manoeuvrability and balance.
    - Tough polycarbonate bodyshell and undertray to keep out the dirt.
    - Original Schumacher spiked tyres.
    - Accepts period nicad/nimh batteries or modern shorty lipos.
    - Accepts brushed or brushless motors.
    - Transmission upgrade available to handle modern high powered motors, and create a class leading buggy for historic RC racing.
    Further details available soon

    Triad M4 Light Weight Wheel Nuts | Gold

    The Avid Gold Triad M4 Light Weight Wheel Nuts are anodized with a unique process that makes them reflective to resemble gold plating. The unique Triad design utilizes only three corners of the nut instead of 6 to give the nut its lighter weight, possibly making them the lightest wheel nuts on the market at 0.3g/ea. But don't think this takes away from the torque handling capabilities. With a quality wheel wrench you can crank these puppies down and the serrations will add the confidence you need for keeping them as you shred that PVC.

    Report of the race from Jorn Neumann:
    Last weekend I attended the Lyon GP for the first time. I must say it was one of the best carpet tracks I ever raced on. It was very technical and had maximum traction. Really challenging for driver and the material. 

    On Saturday it was only 2WD, with 2 Rounds practice, followed by 3 Qualifications and 2 8min mains. After qualifying I found myself in the 3rd position with the brand new Serpent SRX2 MH. A1 was good until the last couple were I just was unlucky, but still finished 3rd. A2 and still the podium was wide open. After a couple laps I could take the lead with a decent gap to 2nd place and cruise to the end to take the overall win!


    Sunday and it was 4WD time. This time with the new Serpent SDX4. After practice I was 4th, I needed to find some more consistency as on one lap I was right there. We made some small changes and improved my 5min pace, just unlucky again as a marshall run on the track and hit my car. Q3 was better and I made a safe run to secure 4th on the grid for this time three 5min A-mains. 
    A1 was a close race between Bayer, Wollanka and me, I finished 3rd just 1.5sec behind. A2 Again a really close race. I was up to 2nd behind Wollanka with just a couple laps to go, but hit a dot and spun out. Finished 2nd just 0.9sec behind.
    A3 I got a good start and could overtake Lee Martin after a couple laps. I tried to push hard to catch Bayer, but it was too much and I had a couple of mistakes which put me down. Overall I finished 3rd. 

    Two times podium was a great achievement. Thanks to all my sponsors.

    • Bonjour tout le monde, Les gemcseries (ou championnat genevois) sont organisées par le genevamodelcars et ouvertes à toutes et tous, quel que soit l’âge ou le niveau de pilotage. Que vous soyez un/une débutant(e), participant à votre première course, ou un/une pilote plus expérimenté ces courses sont faites pour vous. Le règlement -motorisation volontairement raisonnable, pneus imposés, produits a pneu interdits, piste sucrée- ainsi que le format de course ont été ajustés aux fils du temps afin que vous puissiez avoir un maximum de plaisir en pratiquant votre hobby. Toutes les informations sur les SERIES: dates, règlement, etc., se trouvent sur la page dédiée: http://series.genevamodelcars.ch]series.genevamodelcars.ch Pour cette nouvelle saison, 5 manches se dérouleront sur le circuit du Nant-d’Avril à Meyrin. Le circuit du GeMC se situe à deux pas de la frontière franco-suisse! Les dates des courses (avec les dates de réserve en cas de mauvais temps entre parenthèses): Manche 1 – 04.05.2019 (11.05.2019) Manche 2 – 08.06.2019 (15.06.2019) Manche 3 – 13.07.2019 (20.07.2019) Manche 4 – 31.08.2019 (07.09.2019) Manche 5 – 05.10.2019 (12.10.2019) Le règlement a été mis à jour et est disponible sur le site du club. Les changements majeurs sont les suivants: - Sous-catégorie « Rookie » pour les Formule 1 en plus des TouringCar. Cette sous-catégorie est ouverte à tous ceux qui débutent. Elle offre une classement séparé à la fin de chaque manche et du championnat. - Interdiction des produits à pneus mais aussi des nettoyants. La saison 2018 a montré le faible intérêt/efficacité d’utiliser un nettoyant à pneus fournis par l’organisation. Il a été décidé de tout simplement le supprimer pour 2019. - Pneus autorisés en TouringCar: Hudy A1-36 et Sweep EXP30R. Suite aux problèmes rencontrés en fin de saison passée sur des températures de piste fraîches, une nouvelle gomme a été recherchée par l’organisation afin que chacun puisse profiter au maximum de l’expérience des gemcseries. Une dizaine de références ont été testée courant du moins de mars sur une piste froide et non sucrée et la gomme Hudy A1-36 (Importeur TMmodels) a donné d’excellents résultats. Ils seront donc disponibles avec l’inscription à prix réduit aux courses dès la première manche. Pour ceux qui veulent rouler dans des conditions proches du Championnat suisse SRCCA, les pneus officiels Sweep EXP30R aussi utilisé l’an passé sont toujours autorisés. Cordialement,
