Xray has the 2011 spec 808 about to be released as well. There's tons of new cars out there.
Serpent buggy, truggy in the works
JQ
Durango buggy just out, truggy rumored
Xray 2011 buggy
Odonell buggy and truggy
Kyosho
Agama
and everything else I'm missing. There's plenty to choose from, too many if you ask me.

But they are winning some races and coming too close for comfort in other races. That's why they need to improve.

The British motorcycle industry had your philosophy when honda came over the pond. Look where Norton and Triumph are now

In a world that's moving forward, standing still is as good as walking backwards.

Fanboy much? There are other great cars than just Losi, I ran Losi for 2 years and loved it, but there are new designs coming out that can easily compete with Losi.

As you question on losi and mugen. No they wont be making a new ride im sure in at least 2 more years. Losi released the eu edition losi 2.0 and mugen is just releasing an mbx6e. If the companies were planning on releasing a new kit these wouldn't of been made im sure. But they are doing little changes to kits but most companies i dont see a new kit anytime soon. As for serpent, agama, durango, jq and hobao-hong nor-jammin... They just released new buggies and truggies to come from most of them.

Ur joking right? Losi technology, nah! Mugen is just as good and way diffrent desighn. Ive driving and owned both brands and Mugen imo kills losi performance and durability.

Because it is specially modified to work best on European style track and is only sold in Europe, South America and Australia I believe. It isn't a new version of the buggy, it is a Europe specific version. So calling it a 2.0 v2 wouldn't make sense.

lol. Im just saying that it took 4 years for the 1/8 scale industry to catch up to Losi. So all these new chassis will be 4 years behind when Losi comes out with new 8th scale. As far as performance and durability
