Schumacher Indoor Off-road Masters Rd7 report

See: Schumacher Racing

The weekend before last was the final round of the very popular Worksop Series, there was once again a great entry of drivers in the main classes of 2wd and 4wd buggies, then some 2wd stadium trucks and vintage buggies also. As always it was round by round qualifying as the racing format, with the best 2 results from 4 rounds of qualifying counting towards the final position. The control tyre in the buggy classes is the Schumacher Yellow Honeycomb, this works superbly well at Worksop. The track was very much off road, there were lots of jumps and it was a great layout, so a huge thank you to the team for all of their hard work as always.

Klinik RC Cougar Laydown +3mm rear camber mount

See: Klinik RC

Klinik RC have introduced a new +3mm rear camber mount for the Schumacher Cougar Laydown. The mount is aimed at astro and carpet racers that have needed to stack 3-6mm in washers to obtain the correct roll center for higher grip surfaces. The part adds tremendous strength to the rear inner ball mount when running a higher roll center. No washers installed is the same as the stock geometry with 3mm washer, hence the +3mm name.
