The 810 is nothing more then a toy (basher buggy) that could be raced for a beginer. There has been talk of a new roller 2.5/3.0 that is nothing more then a 2.0 with some updates from the eu buggy. Only time will tell if it is true or not.

Yeah that new 810 is just a basher buggy like said before! It has a pull start and small block for cry in out loud! It's gonna fly off the shelf but you won't see many at you local track! Just like the TEN-T did! Ohh and it's based off the ten-t aswell!

Other than 810 Losi isn't making any changes for a while. Dont exspect anything new anytime soon... The EU just came out(european edition) and thats the last of it for a while. No 3.0 or anything is exspected for atleast another year or two is my guess.

Maybe a new box desighn to so servo choice isnt only hitec? Would be nice, I loved my losi 2.0 but man servos were a pain epa was constantly checked and just got annoying.

Yeah same here but i wouldnt mind runnin one again if i didnt have to exspect a servo to fry once every 4 races or so but hey nice to see there making improvements, a lil late but better then never. Even as is its the top selling buggy and it wouldnt change if they left it the way it is lol so atleast its nice to see they are working to impress the customer.

Better quality for the price should be considered but those that drink the Losi Kool-Aid think it's the best thing since sliced bread.

Hmmm... I put mine together with a DS1015 last December and its still like new. I'm not sure what the difference is, but I haven't seen the servo trouble you are talking about.
