Schumacher FT8 Competition FWD Touring Car

Hitting the shelves early June is the new Schumacher FT8 competition FWD touring car for 1/10-scale.

Schumacher FT8 1/10-scale Competition FWD Touring Car


Schumacher FT8 1/10-scale Competition FWD Touring CarThe FT8 has been developed by Schumacher’s world class engineering team to make a fast and great handling front wheel drive (FWD) touring car. With a low center of gravity, lightweight and fine attention to detail, the FT8 is a pleasure to build, maintain and to drive. The FT8 contains all the features and adjustments you need from a high end front wheel drive to take you to the top of the podium. The FT8 in prototype form has achieved some excellent results including: BRCA FWD National Win, 2nd’s and 3rd’s, Andy Murray, Aaron Rose and Jamie Hickin. EWS overall Championship win, Shane Chipolina. MiCC Championship 2nd & 3rd, Aaron Rose & Jamie Hickin.




  • New – C/F Chassis designed with adjustability of flex characteristics in mind.
  • New – Vertical servo mounting allows a heavily forward weight bias.
  • New – Motor positioned directly behind servo for optimal weight distribution.
  • New – Single bell crank steering for a smooth feeling. Compact design allows the battery to be positioned favorably.
  • New – 3D printed bumper with weight options available.
  • Precision hard anodized alloy gear diff, with large oil volume for consistency throughout a run. Ball raced differential outputs with high precision gears.
  • Twin upper suspension link design for flexibility characteristics and tuning of castor.
  • Front body height limit control included in the kit with a lightweight and simple solution.
  • Schumacher FT8 1/10-scale Competition FWD Touring CarCarbon fiber wishbones with pivot ball mounting inboard and outboard.
  • Super low profile shock absorbers and a mounting layout designed for super low center of gravity.
  • Both Vertical and Horizontal rear body mounting options included in the kit.
  • Transmission housings designed to lower center of gravity, maximize durability and optimize geometry and flexibility.
  • Anti roll bar design lowers center of gravity.
  • Ultra fine adjustment eccentrics for optimum belt tension and diff height adjustment.
  • Lower bumper molding prevents the bumper touching down on track.

  • Rear track rod for infinite adjustment to rear toe-in. This can be tuned for the use of Active Rear Suspension.
  • Aerospace carbon fiber components throughout.
  • Ultra low center of gravity.
  • Double wishbone suspension for increased suspension rigidity, and reduced play.
  • Durable and more efficient drive train with larger pulleys 22:40.
  • Fully adjustable, suspension geometry, wheelbase, castor, camber, roll center, Ackermann, droop, anti-dive, anti-squat, front and rear toe in/out, ride height and much more.
  • Option Parts available to fine tune to all track conditions.
  • LiPo retention moldings. No tape required.
