For the rest of us mortals, I think we should concentrate on the fun part and remembering this is just a hobby. It can get a little (or very) competitive, but it's still for fun!!!

The thing most people aren't realizing here is that us racers are a small percentage of all rc'ers out there. So Horizon knew the Losi name would help sell products cause their name was/is all over the magazines. So they BOUGHT losi. The losi's didn't have to sell their interest in the company. They could have stayed a smaller race company. I don't think they expected the company to go the direction it has, but the Losi's made their bed and made some very good money for themselves. All the the great engineers that made Losi cars so good are still in the industry. So the Losi quality of engineering is still around, just under a different name.

Caribbean Queen!! Man, are you sure we're still talking about RC here?? hehehe Just kidding!!

About Losi... well, I'm not an economist or an expert, but sometimes bussinesses do move in different directions than you expect...the Losis (and us) have a right to not like it....but anyway, I'm a Jammin' guy, so "what my worry??"
