Guys, I got the chance to go out to Cali for a few days and hang out with Adam, Mike and the rest of the team. We hit a couple different tracks and I got the chance to see the "local level" talent that exist in So Cal. I had a great time. Although many will never get to see the behind the scenes work ethic of Losi and the dedication put into the product so many use, I can tell you it is much more than what one can imagine. Personally I was amazed! Losi has a very strong grasp in the so cal area(one of/if not the fastest group of racers in the world) and the new car is very competitive out of the box. At revelations on Thursday night I noticed just regular guys who were running the 2.0 and doing well and happy with the car and support offered by Losi. With over 60 racers for a practice night it made for a fun night on a fast track! Once at the Sidewinder race I sat back and watched as the days unfolded. Starting with the pro ranks going down to the sportsman drivers the 2.0/8t was very competitive and showing it's speed even in the hands of regular guys. It was a very educational trip for me and I hope I can better help guys understand why this is such a great product to support!

Hello bustedpiecesrc, I had that problem when I first started running RB's. I would suggest sealing the base of the carb and check your front bearing for leakage. I would also suggest move your question over to the RB thread that is pretty current and filled with helpful people. PM me too if you have anymore questions I will be glad to try and help you.

This has probably been asked already but will the new 2.0 servo/battery tray fit on the old buggy?

That's not a nice thing to say. Besides I don't have a buggy, I was asking for someone else.

Yes it will fit, but you will need to get the linkage along with it to work.

Normally I would say that as well. Brian knows Will and I think he is just goofing around with him. Brian runs for Nanda and he and Will are running mates....that kinda thing. Will has been a "long" time losi supporter himself and I would be suprised if he left the brand.

Just did not want anyone to think Brian was a prick

Wait.....he is
