Default Is Hara in Pattaya testing the Losi??

http://www.neobuggy.net/modules/news...?storyid=10518

The picture shows a buggy looking remarkably like the Losi 8ight.
The rear wing is definitely Losi, and the Bodyshell is a Proline Bulldog having a 'pointy nose' just like a Losi one.......

No its the new hb cr8 he has been testing with a losi wing. The losi wing is one of the best made and alot of guys run it even if not losi. For example a fellow hb guy Ty Tessman runs losi wings for better downforce and looks. That is a CR8 but he is keeping somthin hiddin near like engine or somthin.

Hara doesn't run Alpha engines. He will more than likely stick it out with OS since he has his own OS/Hara edition engine.

This is Ty's post from 6/8/2011 concerning the Losi wing on the D8T. I would assume that it is the same for the D8.

"As for the Losi wing, I always run it on both my cars for a couple of reasons. It provides LESS down force and more stability in corners, my dad and I have done alot of testing and we believe that the reason is the vertical ribs in the middle of the wing, they just seem to keep the rear of the truck more stable".

The body looks like the new HB "Trick" body to me. I'm thinking he's testing the new HB.

The point is that he runs it for a different reason than what was stated.
The point is also, don't copy the Pro's without knowing the reason's behind their changes.

LMAO that was too funny! Snap there goes the crate.

All he's doing is testing the CR8. That's pretty much what he said he was going to do.

I'm sure the majority of us mortals wouldn't feel the difference between the wings. Worth trying, sure it's cheap, doubt any of us could gain anything from it but you never know.
