Default Losi buggy and truggy diapers - any good?

I have a friend interested in these. Are they any good? Do they last? I suggested a cardboard box from the dumpster.

Thanks

buddy has both buggy and truggy version...there Ok....but with wheels on the bag tends to lift on the outer portion's of the wheels and im not a fan of cramming my truck/buggy into a bag like that.....kinda look cool tho.

I came home from a race last year that was nearly rained out... Needless to say my car was MUDDED. That diaper might have just saved my life because I live in an apartment with my girlfriend. Diaper kept my dirty car contained and my girlfriend from blowing a gasket

I keep a cheap roll of plastic bags in my car for after the races. I simply place a car in a bag and tie it up. Never have issues with dirt and grime getting everywhere. The roll will last me all year long and I dont have to worry about washing the diaper out. I just toss the bag in the garbage and walla, Im done.

integra i cut about 2 springs off on both sides of the throttle spring and it worked but i did need to reduce the throttle epa to 70% but its still goes full throttle ,but when i go to full throttle the servo keeps on buzzing its a diginal servo its that ok nothing is biding but the ball cup is a little snug not bad though but if i go any higher then 70% epa its starts to flex alot ,i have the king heads stiffer radio tray and grommets order the servo .

I have the truck one. Haven't gotten the buggy one yet though. I really like mine. Though it is a tight fit, they really keep your car(real car) clean. They are also nice because it gives you a real good handle to carry the cars around with. And Mine was only $30 not 50. Oh and mine is black, not that ugly blue. Looks alot nicer lol.

so the truck one looks like it's for Monster trucks. I wonder it they are gonna make one for truggies? surly they will. when I was racing nitro a lot we usually kept a roll of hefty lg black garbage bags in the vehicle especially after one night of rain and had to take a mud packed gs truggy home caked in tons of mud the wife kinda blew up when she got in the suv and the back was a mess. LOL

My post on the cost was for the set of them for fifty dollars. I know places with great prices.

Looks so far like nobody has anything bad to say about the quality of these. The choice will be my friends. I am going the trash bag route myself.

Thank you all for the replies.

For that price you might as well get an air compressor from wal mart, a bottle of de chlorinated brake cleaner & get that buggy super spiffy before you head home.

I got trug losi bag on ebay for $17shipped and when i bought my last buggy lhs made a deal and sold the losi bug bag for$13. thats what their cost was. there nice to throw extra parts,wings,tires in. the truggy bag can fit a starter box under it with truggy tires on the sides. the more bags the better. just toss it all in the truck&go

The truck one is for truggies AND monster trucks. The truggies(losi 1.0 and 2.0) are a pretty tight fit, but a good fit. No need for a truggy specific one.

tc5 man- maybe try posting in your car's thread, and not in a completely unrelated thread.
