CAT XLS Masami Edition

CAT XLS Masami

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.
