Ok I don't care who makes it I WANT ONE. The cooling head lowers the CG a ton and would provide ample cooling suface area. Look close at the pictures; all of the pins are captured, the drive shaft have pin retainers, the suspension, the chassis is milled even more than the flex chassis. It looks freeking sweet to me. You could go on and on about everything on there if you look close at the pictures.

Now all they have to do is sell an upgrade kit.
I like it

I don't like the way the hinge pins are captured. if that tiny set screw loosens your out.

They use the same small set screws on the throttle linkages on many many buggys/truggys they seem to work fine when you use thread lock. No?

I was staring at the pics and thought there was something differend.
I like those rear hubs. They look good.

It looks like a cool buggy. But there's not a whole lot of Losi left on there. Some of the front braces, steering parts, front suspension, turnbuckles, and rear chassis brace. Maybe center diff parts too.

Is this an altered TFT chassis? and are the shocks still Losi's?

The diffs, arms, bulkheads, steering rack,center diff, chassis, are all Losi to name a few. I just got tired of listing stuff.

Default wow

is there a concrete answer that this will be the official new losi buggy or just a prototype that is being under testing?

this chassis design simply much much advance buggy design versus the rest of the branding in the market. simply a great works.

Those lock collars on the hinge pins are totally LAME ! no battery box, lay down shocks(may work in Europe but not anywhere else) wing mounting looks weak ..... I'm sure Losi is not going to adopt it !

hold the presses! You said "car", "losi", and "prototype" in the same sentence! It must be the new losi prototype!

Looks like the old Schumacher 4wd electric buggies. It will suck on American tracks just like the Schumachers did.

There are some interesting Ideas on this buggy, but I'm sure everyone will just want to argue weather it's a Losi prototype or not tho.

The suspension design has elements of the Piktor Rush and the Ishima Rave buggies. I haven't heard anything about how those buggies perform on US tracks but the design is interesting.
