But those old Losi buggies were something of a whole other level. I took my old JRx2 to the track about 2 years after the XX was out and everyone made fun of tho old equipment with those funny looking plastic axles and the trailing arms.

That is… until I took 1st place in both qualifiers and lapped up to 3rd place in the A-main. Sure wish I could still drive like that. I flat out stink these days and with a family, work and freelance work, I simply don't have enough time to put in the practice! Plus, the local tracks are all 45 minutes away. Soon, I will challenge for a podium!

For beginners or casual racers (a lot of us) older models are fantastic deal. Bought a used B4.1 when the 22 came out. Bought a used 22 when the DEX210 came out. I've been eyeballing a B44.2... but I'll wait until the new 4wd Losi ships when people blow them out for cheap.

Sense a pattern?

They're all still more capable than I am as a driver. The fast guys are going to be fast no matter what they buy: practice and setup experience is holding me back, not my cars.

In mind and body, we're all heading towards old age. It is slower to go by bike.
