Looks like a great Basher truck. That's a great buy at $400. A lot cheaper than a slash

I guess we know why the Troy Lee RTR was discontinued.

I kind of figured as much because I couldn't see Losi being out of the 4x4 SCT RTR game for long.

Seems like a good value for money, but the shocks look cheap like you'd find on a Slash. Given that the Slash is the market they are after, it seems like a solid contender.

Yes, it seems to be a Losi "Slash"

As where the Troy Lee was a down graded TLR SCTE 2.0.

Guys would come at the racetrack with the Troy Lee and by just using a better servo, they had a good rig to start.

The Tenacity is all plastic. Even the turnbuckles! I'm a little disappointed for new comers.

The Baja Rey has an aluminium frame, but "rtr" replacement for the Troy Lee SCTE is "5mm composite".

If the deal with Troy Lee was over, just paint the body an other scheme!

My 2 cents...

I have been really looking to get a 4wd truck... I recently just got into racing a little (at a small local track) with a Losi 22sct 3.0. It's more than I need, but I am growing to love it.

I can't wait to see some solid reviews on this truck compared to the Slash Ultimate... (what I have been looking at). Slash has a lot more parts availability for me locally, but I like me 3.0 and the looks of this truck... definitely subscribed to this thread...

Do not get this truck for racing. Buy the new SCTE 3.0 if you want a 4x4 sct from Losi.

I guess I should clarify... the track I'm running at is actually called "Bash Race Track"... lol... it's much more of a bashing type environment... basically a converted old building that a bunch of friends race Slashes (2wd and 4wd) in. I'd say out of the 100 people I've seen there, less than ten were running something other than traxxas. I ended up putting a pretty penny into my 2wd sct 3.0, and don't know if I need to go that overboard on the 4wd... lol.

Im interested to see how this guy turns out as well. Geometry looks almost identical to my Losi Troy Lee RTR(and SCTE platform) and seems it will share most the parts. Sure they had to make a lot of sacrifices to drop the street price $200, but the lower price will hopefully appeal to a wider audience and get more people to the track! Also will bring losi's 4x4 SCT RTR offering more in line with the competition.

If my ProSC 4x4 taught me anything, its that you can still have a blast competing with a cheap RTR and dont have to spend $1300 if you want to "race". This holds especially true if you are new to the scene or could just use some practice driving I loved that i could convert my Troy Lee to SCTE 2.0 with just a few parts and looks like that could be a possibility here.. I bet the tenacity wouldnt need much to perform just as well.

Plus the neat (but expensive add on) trick the radio can do with the spedo and spektrums mobile app is interesting. Good to see someone else doing that in radios now too. The SR6000 receiver is a nice touch as well and i havent had any issues with my fuze 130a esc( rebranded hobbywing wp-sc8). I think this looks like a great beginner truck that could also be fun at the track

This may be another "gateway" truck. I wonder if the Jammin chassis for the SCTE will fit? If so, some Lunsford turnbuckles, Dubro rod ends and a higher KV motor might make it a contender for those who move up from bashing to racing. Yeah, that's about $200 added to the initial cost, but it seems doable. The fact that Horizon says it has all metric hardware leads me to to think there are other differences from the real SCTE however

One thing that is nice is that it's all metric. The TEN SCTE is SAE.

This is going to be a top choice for my Grand kids to run on our soon-to-be private 'back-yard' track!

Since there is no organized racing in our area i'm not concerned with overall handling characteristics but rather, durability and best 'bang-for-my-buck'.

What's your Youtube channel name? Searching for Losi Tenacity, I don't see anything.
