I have to say in that race the new TLR seemed to be slightly more athletic and composed when driven aggressively, and after a handful of laps started to slowly pull away from the B74. Keep in mind I only saw one race, but it was the last race of the day so plenty of time for both guys to have their car tuned to the track. When I went over after the race to ask about it, they quickly covered it up and didn't answer my question if it was the new car(of course).

I'm now very curious to how well it does at the worlds.
Thanks for the info. Look forward to seeing what they come up with. It seems there are standard features and layouts that just about all the manufacturers use. Not sure how different Losi's offering is going to be. I guess it just comes down to the little things that separates one design from another. In this case I would venture to guess Losi is going to use similar features already in production and used by other brands. Unless they are bringing something new and totally different to the table, the one thing that will separate them from everyone else is price.

I am not an Xray fan by any means, but it is a very solid piece of kit and the two year old version should be available at a decent price.
Thanks for the suggestions. I have always been one to want to be different. I was a big Durango fan for a while. Had most of their vehicles at one time or another, but needed to pretty much keep an arsenal of spare parts with me because my local shop did not carry their stuff.

So as it stands right now, my local shop pretty much carries, AE, Losi, and Yokomo. It's going to be one of those three. I do like the idea of being able to share parts. I have a 22 5.0 SR, and will most likely pick up a 22T. If Losi's new 4wd shares parts with the other models, I may just as well stick with them.

Ha, Losi people want to get the belt, but get shafted! To get me away from my b74, would love to see this:

Floating bulkheads like the B74, so an aluminum shock tower mount that also mounted to the chassis. Tired of broken bulkheads.
95% or so parts work on their new Truggy, like the eb410/et410
Longer chassis and driveshaft, body mounts, Bumpers, to make it Shortcourse. Like Tekno should do to the et410.
Or like the kit out there for the b64, to a truggy.

That would rock. I refused to take a belt, but love getting shafted.

Phend is running s front scoop so it will be a xb4, yz-4sf, b74 mixture. I do t think belts are part orbit anymore.

The chassis is no longer triangular, but a narrow rectangle. You can see the bump for the new side guards on the front lower edge of the body.

Industry standard basic design as expected, which makes sense. Can't wait to see the tweaks that make it special!
