Default Losi is cool

You complainers are builders and racers. If you were designers, engineers, and manufactures you would understand this new stuff just doesn't fall off of trees. Or most recently unload themselves from ships. Please keep your mouth shut and don't scare these Losi guys away from these forms and helping us.

hmm maybe. With the new durango Sc and Tekno Sc models coming out,im surprised they didnt update a couple things like were listed here in this thread,that made alot of sense and slap a 3.0 on it and sell em on hype alone,everyone knows the 2.0 is a solid performer already.

Few questions,anyone know the weight and performance diff in the 2.0 chassis and,the mip chassis,vs the extreme racing carbon chassis.Id like to build my next losi sc as light as i can get it.

I haven't seen anyone complaining just asking questions so who knows what he is talking about. And as a matter of fact I just happen to be a CAD/CAM designer for 20 years and I do know about injection, and form molds and many other kinds of molds that it takes to do this stuff, as well as tool and die. The truck is a beast it is one of, if not the best available hands down.

I would have liked to include some of the other stuff, but for everything I wanted to include, it would have needed all new manual and box art and thus we would have been WAY further out which wasnt possible with the timeframes I was given. Sorry Guys. I did mention the new parts are marked on the backed saying made in taiwan now.

I run the tekin 4600 and RX8 and usually temp between 150-160.
