You said why losi is king. everyone has one. parts are around in the pits. etc.

My bud has been getting cheap mugen spares on ebay like crazy soo.. thats a good thing. I know the mugen is strong but he said the chassis wears alittle faster then others. I know BCE makes a nice one for it.

Two other guys i know have gotten these tamiyas and they like them. They seem to be going pretty quick with them right away.


You got too many options

So many options and so much money to spend ... IF i can get anything for this GS chassis I have then i can do one of the higher kits .. and I seem to exaggerate prices huh

Never really looked at the losi before .. not sure why maybe because everyone has one it seems ... but it really is a good looking buggy ... The little nose on the body was a bit strange to me at first i must say ...

I noticed you did not say Xray ... any reason ?? ...

I dunno, look at all the cars. I like the losi cause we don't really change the set-up just tires to suit conditions. I also get alot lot of support from my local team driver. So it makes it a bit easier to go fast with it. I also like that they support a guy like that... etc.

I am sure your local track has someone like that. If you can find someone uber fast who can help you locally get the car they drive and maybe you will be much happier and successful. I learn from other racers and the tech and really i bought what wins and is most popular in my area.
