Welcome to the forum

Yes, it is a Bosscat with JC Racing wheels (JCSF-B & JCSR-B, front & rear part numbers) and a nice rear wing.

Very good condition won't need a lot spending to get it running. Needs motor, speed controller, battery and transmitter.

Receiver already has a crystal in it, did you get transmitter and crystal with the car ?

John

A few Bosscats have been available on the website you mention. There is none at the moment but even Procats have dried up.

Have you got a manual ? if not you can download and print you own at;

Hope this helps

Go the Schumacher web site and find Old Cars & Spares on the left side, select Bosscat and then choose the full listing. You will see we still have many parts in stock. You can mail order from the site or ask your local dealer to get parts for you.

Yes its a Bosscat alright and a very stealthy one at that-LOL. Mate these still are a great car and in my opinion one of Schumacher's best 4WD cars they ever made. Well worth the effort I reckon, very reiable and the drive train will easily handle a 5.5 turn motor (well atleast mine does).

The chassis Liam has is the sport version. Nothing wrong with it though. Now days with lipo stick packs around this chassis would do just fine. The Bosscat's real advantage was the front bulk head as far as im concerned. It has 'ecentrics' which alloy the front belt tension to be adjusted rather than the previous method used on the CAT's and Procat where the front gear box slid forward tensioning the belt. This design was prone to loosening off with a good hit in the front. Bosscat also has the 23mm diff centres with the alloy PRO diffs being far superior too.
