Well a running prototype is still really cool, and it means it's alot closer than I would of imagined. Let's just hope no major problems show up during testing that will delay it.

Cool Finally!

Get some pics please.
It is good to see an American company put their cards in 1/8th offroad.
Hope they go metric to incentivize some of the existing guys to come over to the Losi car.

I know it's just a prototype, but why hype a prototype to the public, you should only hype the production car, because what ever shows up here may not be the final run. But It will be interesting to see where they are headed!

Maybe it's not a prototype.....more of a pre-production model

Casey,
Are you going to pick one up when they come out?? I know I am! The Hot Bodies are just to keep me racing until then. I`m a Losi man from day one.I`m looking forward to the Truggy also!

Soon to be Team Losi again, Ron

the buggy has alredy been tested and proving to be be good. nobody knew about it because it was all done on a mugen. they tested all the geometries on it, now there are designing the car. so what you will see is more than likely the kit. this is all from a team losi employee

Isnt this pretty stupid on losi's part? i mean wouldnt it be better to hype this thing for the 1st quarter instead of mid to late summer? Because now i bought me a kyosho truggy just because this thing isnt out yet. I really want a losi buggy but im getting kinda of tired of wating till end of summer when i cant really run anymore ill be racing touring cars then..

if they release it too soon there might be bugs that they havent worked out yet... example: xxx-4

Wouldn`t you rather wait for a quality vehicle you can race knowing you have no issues? And then have to wait for the fixes?
Myself.... I`LL WAIT!!
