I always thought it felt like i was driving a bag of concrete around the track. I did everything i could to give that car a fair chance. I will be giving it back to the team owner and running a LOSI for good this time. Some people like the RC8, but its just not for me!

RC is also up there with his AE Vehicles as well.
The fact that these guys are among the best in the world has absolutely nothing to do with the brand of car. Nothing.

In case you forgot, Cavalieri won his first world title with a Losi......

Man he owns with that buggy, by far my favorite rc driver.
Was definetly rooting for him at the Worlds. Hhaha sounds funny, im 32 and I have a favorite RC driver lol. I think being smooth is all about how the car is setup for a track, This persons Kyosho setup may better setup on track A than the Rc8 setup and vice versa, but both are still drivable, and drivers are good enough to still adapt and make both fast.

i wouldnt comment if i didnt go there,leave that to tc5 the AE PROFESSIONAL and he dont even own one.. i drove 3 hours to race there and it was a disaster.. track looked like it wasnt maintained all season,my lungs were full of red dust also my truck coat me 30$ to wash,my cars took an extra 3 hours to rip apart and clean.. they cant even pick rocks off the track,or smooth jump faces..it could be a decent place but tracks arent to be run by lazy people.. its good for free practice,TRAX 70 IS HOW ITS DONE!!!! im sure your a local also,but if you choose a track like that over gas expenses your in wrong sport... i left feeling like the track owed me money.

no no sir i mean y even bother messin with tc5? if its not usefull to you just ignore his comments. lol and i am not a local to that track. kinda one hell of a hike from WV to run in a dust bowl. at least he was on topic. if you dont consider the driving in the vid smooth as i dont then just state it and move on. just thought it was a lil harsh bustin him out like that. thats some pm content there. i dont apreciate your asumptions about me and me bein in the WRONG sport.
