Yes....BUT.....BUT.....BUT......They usually don't spill the beans on projects untill the last minute and soon follow with " spy " shots from a track somewhere. AHHHH.....basically I have NO PATIENCE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LMAO

that drawing is very good. the problem with keeping is secret is people might go buy an Xray and two days later the losi comes out when that is what they really wanted. as for screw size i say offer two screw kits with the car cause all the guys that switch from another car will only have metric wrenches (if thats all they race) but others that usually run GT will have standard. also it would be good as if you lose a screw you have backups. i know that will raise the price but most 1/8th buggies are very expensive as it is i.e. 777 sp2: 700 XB8TQ: 590

Nah... That'll never work. There are no screws holding that thing together!

There are clearly four screws in the bottom and the arms are outfitted with tie wraps.

yes you found it

it a MAD racing 4x4 chassis

there are no holes because all stubs taking the plates stand milled out of a 12 mm alu plate
in the middle is a 12 mm backtorque also mille out who takes the vertical motormount.

The 1/8th buggy talk is also keeping the new 1/10 buggy under the radar. I'm hearing that it will come out around the Mod Nats this summer.

I cant wait to see Losi stick to them. There are a lot of good buggies out there but true to losi form there will have to be something different and new with it . Losi are good at new designs all their cars have been different .
