    Great Start for New CAT SX3

    February 23, 2011 - 13:15 by Kevin 0 Comments

    “Schumacher’s new CAT SX3 has taken the top 3 Qualifying positions at the very popular Schumacher Indoor Masters at Worksop, UK 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. 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. Read more…

    Team Durango reports – “Round five of the Schumacher Indoor Masters held at the immensely popular Worksop venue saw a battle-royale in the 4WD class, which saw Team Durango take the top two spots with Nathan Waters and Craig Collinson going 1-2, with Adam Skelding 6th and James Helliwell 9th. The new Short Course truck class at Worksop saw Team Durango’s Adam Skelding dominate qualifying with the new DESC410R – taking 3 of the 4 rounds to take overall TQ in the 16-car final! The 8-minute final quickly changed into 11 minutes during the race as the organisers played with the timing. By the end of the 11 minutes it was Nathan Waters again taking the win, with Adam Skelding 2nd – giving the DESC410R a healthy 1-2 in its first outing at Worksop.”

Very easy handling body providing lots of down force and great rear end pressure. New front end design and recessed central frontal area creates lots of steering too.”

    Hot Bodies CR8 Buggy *Sneak Preview*

    February 18, 2011 - 15:30 by Kevin 0 Comments

    Our friends over at Neo Buggy reports – “Hot Bodies designer Josh Alton along with team driver Jesse Robbers will debut the new Hot Bodies CR8 buggy at this weekend’s Motorama indoor race in Harrisburg, PA. The car’s most defining feature is the composite chassis with aluminium engine plate insert – not seen before on a production competition 1/8 buggy. The car shown is Alton’s own test platform with 4+ gallons through it and a few rebuilds (replaced front & rear skid plates & other parts according to normal wear). Alton tells us that the car’s suspension geometry is based upon the World Championship winning D8 platform but updated and tweaked, overall the CR8 shares about 5% of parts with the D8 – i.e. from the ground up a new car. We understand the CR8 project began in mid 2009, with initial testing in May 2010 – Alton’s own test car was run on the Worlds track at the October test with promising results. Update: Now shown in pictures but we understand the receiver battery will be located under the fuel tank!”
