Schumacher have introduced their new low grip conversion set for their Cougar KF buggy which moves the motor and centre cluster back by 21mm. The more rearward weight distribution gives the KF more rear traction, and is well suited to wet astroturf, or high grip dirt tracks. In the rearward motor position the car must be used with a shorty lipo. The new chassis can accept either motor position so the car can be converted back to the forward motor position for extra steering when the grip comes up.
