I think it will be nice to build an 1/8th scale with Losi instructions...

We're not talking about the rest of the WORLD here..this is a U.S. made buggy!

How much longer are they hiding the CAD/prototype photos under the table? Can't wait to see the red-white-blue buggy!~

Hmmm the LST and LST2 are Chinese made...

Seriously though, I am looking forward to seeing some pics of this, or in person since we got a top Losi driver as a local.

Had to get in on this.....
OK here's my guess. I am thinking the main differences we will see will be a reduction in number of parts via using molded pieces for the front end etc., a more modular design ala XX, and a little different front upper suspension setup, similar to the 1/10-scale cars. Vertical ballstuds maybe?

Just a guess......what do you think???

D_Ames - I think that is something the whole segment of the hobby will benefit from!

Tony - You're thinking like an engineer! We'll have to wait to see if you got anything right.

binaryterror - You're right, the LST and LST2 are made overseas. But as Losi's history stands (and from what I know, always will be), Losi's race-specific cars and trucks are built right here in the U.S. and the new buggy will be no exception.

ogreasurada - I don't know...but there are sure a lot of people excited about it

thatoneguy - I think it makes perfect sense going along with the origin of the buggy! I'm not sure how much 4-40 stuff will make its way onto the bigger car but I've got a lifetime supply of it, for sure!

5-40 screws will most likely be found in higher stress areas.... I'm curious to see what Jr came up with.

Speculation

A few problems with your "speculation":

Looks to be belt drive, well why would they set the center diff in-line like a standard buggy and then run belts, this would require an extra set of bevel gears to change the direction of the rotation..... quite inefficient, when you could run the engine and spur in-line with the belts and allow you to center the engine in the chassis like a on-road nitro....

The front pivot ball suspension cannnot use a standard tie-rod chamber link or it will just flop around.....

6 speeds??? that would make this buggy totally illegal for any sanctioned races, single speeds are the limit....

2 disc brakes??? 6061 chassis??? why would they spec the buggy below what has become the standard for pro kits???

Double adjustable wing??? please explain this, cause all 1/8th buggies have at least 2 positions for their wings....

I thought that drawing was pretty impressive in terms of the detail put into it...but obviously, that's not the production car.

GregH - I think we might be looking at bigger screws than that..

Brant - Losi is great at keeping stuff secret when they want to!
