Jack Smash - Bingo!

Mark G - I think this car will bring a lot of people into nitro off-road racing. It will be nice to see new faces.

I got to hold the car this weekend, it looks great. Biggest thing is how light the car is and how agile the car looked on the track. LOSI fans won't be dissapointed.

How light can it be? Still has to make rule based weights.

RC Pro Rules: Minimum weight - 112.9 ounces (3.2 kilos) 7lbs .9 oz.

Kyosho 777 SP2 runs normally around 115 ounces ready to run.

Indeed. I'd rather have a car that is under the legal weight limit that can be augmented with ballast as needed. This not only allows you to trim the weight to suit any weight requirements, but also allows you the extra ability to place the ballast anywhere along the chassis to strategically-optimize handling for any given circuit.

but then you get the whole 'off-season' to get familar with the car.

there is nothing harder than running a brand new car first time out at important races, no matter how good the car is.

I always prefer to get my new cars so I can break them in when it does not matter
