Yeah, unfortunately a lot of the old motors were the same on the outside with only the armatures changing. The only way to identify the specs in those cases is to take them apart to inspect the armature. I wouldn't do that on nice motors though as you risk marring them.

We have an extensive guide that shows who sold what in terms of specs but doesn't help much for cosmetic identifications.

Cheers for that. I will have to see if I can get a motor dyno and run them to see how they preform.

I think I can identify three parts on this vehicle. :D I am guessing a hodge podge, but looking for any info, especially the trans. The chassis plate is Bolink, but not the rest right? Thanks!

What model of Schumacher is this? Does it look like an off road model that has had on road tires added and body mounts added?

I'm nowhere near being a Traxxas expert, but from the parts I've come across that looks maybe like a Traxxas diff in a homemade motor / gear mount.

Hopefully Alex or Retro RC can chime in with a good answer. It looks like a Pro CAT to me because it has the Top CAT style rear suspension and the XLS style front.

I do not recall Schumacher offering an on-road/rally Pro CAT, but they definitely had on-road/rally versions of the Bosscat and CAT 2000, so it is possible they had a Pro Cat version as well.

Judging by the body mounts and wheels / tyres, I'd be saying a Schumacher RS4x4 Road and Track. Some good info in this old 10Talk thread: https://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?t=34577 . Luckily, all the pictures are still there, so you get a great idea of what it's supposed to look like unbuilt, and the TamiyaClub link is still there as well, so you can see how the car looks built.

It’s either a Schumacher road and track 4wd or a converted procat. The road and track was just a procat with onroad body mounts, tires and a saloon body. I’m pretty sure the first one was a sierra cosworth body

What's up with this 6-Gear output gear? :|

Defect seems like the obvious guess...but does anyone know otherwise?
