At first I thought Kawada, since they had the single belt also. But rumor of a top / bottom graphite deck XXXS were around at one point. I guess that is it in the pic.

That's the early XXX's prototype. I even remember Team Losi held a competition for naming the car and the winner would receive one of the kits as a prize.

I think that was David's car or even Josh's car.

Here's a video of my 414 at Ripon's track around (3) months ago. I TQ'd 17.5. I'm the white car. I was down motor that night. Car wasn't bad for only racing twice all year. Tim Copp and George Lin gave me all I could handle that night.

Wow can't believe xxxs was the winning name when XTC would've been such a better name!

That chassis is about as wide as a skateboard. We've come a long, long way baby.

Was given a Corally C4 recently. Anyone still running these?

Remembered how cool these were in the mags when I was a kid.

I wonder if Exoteck or anyone like that would make a double deck conversion for the XXX-S. If anyone would buy it?

An XXXX-S may be wide, but they are sturdy! Pretty much unbreakable.

I have one that i was given. I actually thought it was a Xray t1 at first. Sits on my shelf, maybe have to throw some modern electronics in it and give her a go.

Gary here's my 414 at the 2011 Reedy. I drove like crap. I didn't race all year leading up to that race. I qualified second. And I think I ended up 3rd. Could've been second. I don't remember.
