Here is what is was posted.

Visit Losi.com 10.22.09 for the NEW 1/10 TEN-T Nitro Truggy RTR, featuring Losiís revolutionary Remote On-Board Starting System (R.O.S.S.)


They probably be packaging it with one of there new DS2X or DS3X radios if it's going to have on board starter.

I'm an AE guy, but I think this truck looks pretty cool. I love running 10th scale nitro (even though hardly anybody else does). If this brings back gas truck (in a 4WD variety) than I'm all for it. The only thing I wonder is how easy the thing is going to be to work on. All the extra onboard sensors, plus the ROSS, and the fact that it's 4WD may make it a pain to make major repairs. Of course, maybe I'm spoiled from working on 2WD stuff!!

Ditto. I'm sure Mike at RCM is already working on something for it.

Saw the video on their site and it looks promising. Its basically a scaled down 8T with big bore shocks and beefy turnbuckles on a 3MM chassis.

The starting system actually looks really cool. I dont know how much weight can be saced though. It beats carrying around a bunh of staring equiptment.

I agree that a conversion for it would be nice too. Low KV motor on 3S would rip!!

i guess have to buy the center diff as a opnion , if u want to race it i would ditch the starter system and make it non pullstart and get rid of the 2speed into a single speed. it looks good plus on the dingal servos the shocks and turnbuckles look real good and there big bores hay its cheaper on tires than a truggy i think this class will be good in 2010 .

Because the HPI "truggy" is marketed as an MT and the diffs arent worth a crap. They cant even handle the power of the stock .18 and some people were converting them to BL and gave up....I was 1 of those

Losi is good at making hop up for their RTRs and hope they release a center diff. If they dont you can just change the shift point as low as possible and make that work. I highly doubt this truck will spark a new class but it sure looks like it will be fun at the track. Especially with that .20 in it.

So anyways, it's $500, but if you look at horizon's website it says it comes with a DX3s radio, and a lipo rx pack with charger. So really not a bad deal at all!!
