There are only a few truly iconic cars and names in the RC racing world, two that are mentioned in the same breath are “Cecil Schumacher” and the “Schumacher ‘C’ Car”. The revolutionary ‘C’ car emerged from the Schumacher stable and won multiple European Championships in the 1980’s. This was just the beginning for Schumacher Racing, and after a gap of nearly 35 years, we are excited to announce the arrival of the latest 1/12th circuit car to bear the Schumacher name, the ECLIPSE. The ECLIPSE breaks the mould of 1/12th circuit car design and features a full length carbon fibre chassis and high quality engineering polymer mouldings throughout. The ECLIPSE is durable, easy to maintain, but above all, fast! The design makes the ECLIPSE forgiving and easy to drive. Your best bet for the top step of the podium.
