Schumacher CAT SX3 1/10th Competition 4WD

The new CAT SX3 follows on from the highly successful CAT SX range. Stronger and more durable than ever before! An all new mid-motor design with central lipo battery positioning offers fantastic balance, control and agility. Jumping like the Pro's is made super easy with the new compact layout and corresponding motor/wheel rotation. Awesome acceleration and straight line speeds are still achieved.

With the inclusion of the excellent large capacity big bore shocks, high down force MAX sized rear wing and new cool body the CAT SX3 remains the market leader.

Designed to race, designed to win! The CAT SX3.

Il fallait s'y attendre...

Ils nous avaient déjà fait le coup avec le Cat 2000 et le Cat 3000.

Reste que ça t'oblige aussi a passé a des accus saddle.

Et du coup, ça fait un gros changement (et investissement) pour celui qui voudrait changer son Cat SX ou SX2 pour un Cat SX3.

Mais si non, c'est vraiment beau et bien fait.

? Pas grand rapport... par contre je suis d'accord avec toi, pour ce qui est du moteur à l'AV ils avaient vu très juste... De nos jours ça semble indispensable en TT.

en regardant les photos de ce nouveau châssis, il pourrai nous sortir un kit de conversion du cat sx2 en sx3!

d'apres ce que je peux voir des photos il faudrait un châssis, les platines, support de packs, support de "boite de transmissions", support moteur!

Schumacher’s new CAT SX3 has taken the top 3 Qualifying positions at the very popular Schumacher Indoor Masters at Worksop over the weekend.

Prototype versions of the new car were in action for the first time in public competition and dominated qualifying. Simon Moss won all 4 qualifying rounds ahead of a competitive field showing huge potential and already showing great speed.

Not only did Simon TQ but this was also followed up by Grant Williams and Tom Cockerill qualifying 2nd and 3rd respectively with their new cars. Unfortunately work commitments meant that Simon had to head off before the finals.

TQ Simon Moss - CAT SX3

2 Grant Williams - CAT SX3

3 Tom Cockerill - CAT SX3

4 Nathan Waters

5 Paul Bradby

6 Craig Collinson

7 David Poulter - CAT SX2

8 Rob Fox

9 Greg Williams - CAT SX2

10 Adam Skelding

This left Grant and Tom to try and battle it out in the single leg final and after some good fighting Grant got the better of Tom. A perfect weekend for the car was almost wrapped up only for an unfortunate incident with a corner marshal prevented Grant from winning. In the end Grant came 3rd behind Nathan Waters and Craig Collinson.

All in all a good showing for the new car.

Simon Moss - Schumacher CAT SX3

Simon Moss and 6 other Schumacher drivers were piloting the new CAT SX3 buggy in 4WD - an evolution of the original SX design with a central motor location and revised drivetrain.

The new car isn't available yet but is already showing its pace in testing and here at the opening National with Simon Moss qualifying 3rd. It uses a similar feature set from the older generation cars - 3 belts and 'reverse motor' which runs the same direction as the wheels. The new motor location should help balance the car and put the power down.

The original SX layout was really designed for NiMh cells with a 4-2 split but was born at the dawn of Lipo acceptance. With the new car being fully developed with help from team drivers and Tom Cockerill's summer work placement - the new layout is sure to be a huge hit.

Like a few other Schumacher drivers - Simon was using Team Durango driveshaft boots to protect his differentials from dirt ingress. We believe he might have been testing a lightweight differential option under those covers.

Le retour du TDS !!!

Il me semble qu'un Français avait fait le même montage en reprenant une partie des pièces d'un TDS de Cat 2000. Si Schum commercialise un TDS pour le CAT SX, je pourrai peut-être le greffer sur mon antiquité...

Il me semble que le tds était déjà disponible pour le cat sx 2. Sous appellation fab (front adjustable breaking).

Trish Neal's CAT SX

Trish Neal has a knack for engineering cool innovations and finally has his hands on a pre-production Schumacher CAT SX3 - and already is making parts for the car!

Trish has created a central brass weight whih sits just under the rear drive belt - following its angle. The brass is to give some more weight where the cells sit for balance but unlike one of the brass lipo trays that are commonplace - this keeps the weight in the centre where it's best.

Trish also created a quick-release for the front pulley - machining the alloy bulkhead and bolting on a carbon plate to hold down the pulley and allow it to be pulled out quickly with needing disassembly.
