Default LOSI EIGHT PICS

THAT LOOKS DIALED!!!! I JUST HOPE THAT THEY HAVE A FULL BLOWN RACE VERSION WITH TITANIUM AND SUCH...

I LIKE THE OFF CENTER DRIVE TRAIN FOR PLACEMENT OF THE MOTOR CLOSER TO CENTER, JUST HOPE IT HOLDS UP...

what is absolutley awsome about that, is it looks as if its pretty much production ready, maybe mid to late summer isn't such a lofty goal for it, i can't wiat to see one run, looks pretty sweet,

you can see in the pic of the rear suspension its got nitrided hinge pins, i'd imagine the shock shatfs are too, i'd like to see aluminum towers and braces, and a carbon fibre radio plate thgouh, just for the bling factor,

that thing looks like POO!!! everything is composite, and spaced very poorly. only thing on it that looks good it the motor being more to the center, but with the center shaft put more to one side of the car i think it will have some torque steer.

they tried to make it look too much like a xxx-4

Doods, lets not be to negative here, its yet to be race tested, you can't tell anything by bench racing the car! I'm sure Losi has done their homework.
