    Bosscat

    I have a vintage Bosscat that is about 20 years old. It was a full works kit back in the day. It has almost zero race time on it and is excellent condition. I am thinking about knocking the dust off of it and getting it running again. Been out of the electric scene for some time know. My basic questions are:

    - will the buggy stand up to the new brushless systems?

    - what is the vintage race scene like, if there is one

    - relative value of the buggy in today's market

    RE: Bosscat

    I can not answer your questions, but I can recommend you ask on the Schumacher site. Maybe someone there can help.

    RE: Bosscat

    A couple of years ago I had a Bosscat that I ran around first with a 19T brushed setup, then with a Mamba Max 5700 setup on 6-cell NiMh. I did not race, but ran over gravel, dirt, grass, and other fun surfaces - the transmission never had an issue. Your results will vary of course, but I'm pretty confident that running a reasonable BL setup (think 2s, nothing manical like 7000 kV) will be ok - at least, things won't explode quickly.

    I did end up selling it though, as a couple of crashes resulted in broken parts, and those parts were very frustrating to find, and took forever to get to the US.

    I wish you luck! It's a fantastic buggy.

    FYI, that site Anthoop linked to is where I used to find a couple of solid sellers of vintage Schumacher stuff - one guy in particular sold some outstanding items.
