No, Losi is just owned by Horizon now...honestly all this BS stuff from Losi/Horizon pushes me away from them. I love my 8, but seeing the RTR/BS direction they are heading, the 8 just may be my last Losi vehicle.

I actually think it's a good idea. That having been said, the question that begs to be asked is: why would anyone spend $20+ dollars for this diaper, when a regular garbage bag will do the same job, if not better, for mere pennies?

I like this idea. And one thing I can say about Losi, they think about stuff that make things a lot easier for racers. I have purchased a number of items that has helped out a lot that was only made by Team Losi. Hat tip Team Losi!!!

LOL! Drake approved diaper for your pile of crap!



Actually, it's a good idea, keeps all or most of the dirt contained.

I think since Adam Drake approved it, everyone should buy it. I hear he runs a cult in his basement and makes all underlings wear bubble wrap sweaters and call him nothing other than "The Drake". I have also been told Travis Amezcua is his first seargent

I just use my Team Magic F8 bag, holds the dirt just fine, and can later wipe out the drawers as they are corrugated plastic.

But not everyone wants or can afford the F8 bag. I have one and I love it but I do see a purpose or the "diaper". Could it be done cheaper by some other means? Yes. Then again, we didn't have to buy the Integy/Hudy/Thorpe wrenches either. A $10 allen key set from Home Depot does the same thing. Some things are just better than others.

All that being said, I won't buy one. I'd much rather the neoprene cover TTR had a while back. A good sock to ship the car in or travel with since the car won't get banged around in shipping. Bad enough they get beaten on the track.

When great "little companies" go big , it's only a matter of time when some greedy P.O.S. takes them over -most of the time by trickery and dirty tactics ,that the end is near ! Losi has had their day in the sun, We shall see in 2 weeks what shining new star awaits for the next race season....
Losi diaper ...ROTFLMAO

The idea that Horizon is ending Losi's racing contingent is, well, BULLSHIT. Sure, they are putting more towards "basher" products, but guess what? That's called marketing. Horizon/Losi are pushing Losi for the reason that Losi is their biggest company and they want Losi to be well known in as many areas as they can get.

Besides, take a look at their website. They just released the XXXT-CR. They've been recruiting new team drivers. Not to mention the 8ight and 8ight-T have been winning races like crazy.

If you think Losi is going towards the basher market and won't support them because of that, then I feel sorry for you, you're missing out on alot of great stuff despite what you may think.
