Losi is on a mission to corner the market such that you will not have to buy from another company. i.e. their titanium 8 parts. I think the new buggy will just appeal to the basher who just wants an inexpensive buggy and dosent want a race maching. I think losi dosent want you to ever have to go to another mfg to get whatever it is that you want. Just my 2 cents.

I use 3 hex drivers and one nut driver to tear my whole car apart. I never understood the whole "I need to use metric thing" a wrench is a wrench, just different sizes

More like everyone else hasn't discovered standard hardware. Much better than metric IMO.
