Anyone have a extra xxx-s chassis for sale? I'm looking for one. Either graphite or not.

Default How long has it been discontinued?

Hey everyone, I'm racing a xxx-s g+ in a newly formed VTA series and loving the chassis, I'll be bitterly disappointed when I can no longer get parts for it.

I've been quite happy to tell anyone I'm racing against that my car is an antique, so I'm wondering how long the xxx-s has been discontinued?

Also are there any rumors of losi bringing out another 1/10 tc chassis. Since they discontinued the jrx chassis they seem to be focused on off road only.

Welcome to the family !!! The XXXS is and always will be one of the great cars in rc. It's just a darned good design. Not perfect, not as easy to work on as some new cars , not the prettiest....but a damned solid performer and pretty easy to make successful in classes like VTA. I just built one of my 4 xxxs's for a member of our club to try. He was having no luck with the tc3. WOW, what a difference thgis car made for him. He was smoother than he's ever been and obviously happy with the way it handled.

The G+ was discontinued a while back. Couldn't say exactly when. The plastic chassis car was just discontinued within the last 2-3 years I think. It became the Drift-R sold as a RTR and as Losi got out of on road....ALL their on road was discontinued.
Parts are still easy to find with Ebay being the best source. Losi Parts House is good also. Always do a generic Google search for the losi part number too. You'd be surprised how many smaller shops pop up and may have that hard to find part.
The alloy stuff is the hardest. Trnity/Matt Francis and Dynamite stuff are hard to find these days.
Have Fun....it's still one of the best and I'll always have one on my shelf waiting to kick some butt in VTA. Congrats on your VTA class. It's the best.

I had the RTR plastic version of this car, and wish I had never got rid of it (thinking I had to had the latest/greatest). I couldn't go wrong with it. it never tweaked, it just plain worked. I remember taking it out of the box, putting a decent stock motor and some tires on it, and winning the first time I ever ran it. They had the worlds easiest to race car, then replaced it with one of the most difficult to run cars (jrx-s) then stopped on-road all together. I say bring it back.
