Default XXX-CR Thread

Team Losi celebrates their 25th year of offering racers unmatched race proven designs and features with the release of the “XXX-CR” 2WD off-road racing buggy. The CR designation is a throw back to the Losi heritage offering “Competition Ready” kits incorporating innovative thinking, cutting edge design and unmatched material technology. The Team Losi engineering and development team have redesigned and revised a number of key elements for the XXX-CR to take full advantage of the latest generation of hi-performance motors, batteries, and tires. The CR also benefits from Team Losi’s exclusive new “EA3” composite material for more durability than any buggy you've ever driven. The unique combination of design, hi-tech components and materials lets the XXX-CR produce incredible acceleration and stability through the roughest track sections and tightest turns. The wide range of adjustability and predictable handling makes the XXX-CR even easier to drive fast.

Look for these exciting new features all included in the most advanced buggy kit ever offered:
* New VLA rear suspension arms with revised geometry
* Revised rear shock tower/bulkhead with more tuning options
* New symmetrical VLA type rear hubs with vertical ball studs
* New steering rack configuration for greater handling predictability
* New molded gear cover and plug for added protection
* Redesigned long-life differential requiring less maintenance
* Revised front shock tower with greater tuning options
* New “HD” heavy-duty ball studs with a hex in the head
* New battery strap with extra holding capacity for latest cells
* New tunable aero package – body, front and dual element rear wing
* Revised XXX transmission with 2.43 final drive ratio
* New Beefier Titanium turnbuckles and heavy duty grey ball cups

In addition to these new features look for Ti-Nitride shock shafts and hinge pins, hard anodized threaded shock bodies, suspension balls and top shaft, machined 7075 aluminum motor plate, ball bearing steering and other components simply not offered by any other manufacture.

The result is a feature packed competition kit that is unmatched for quality, content, and performance. Look for the XXX-CR to be showing up at racetracks and hobby shops worldwide this summer.

LOSA0032 XXX-CR 2WD Competition Buggy Kit est. street price $224.99

The rear end of the car has a ton of new tuning options, especially the vertical ball stud mounting locations on the rear hubs. I want to say there's 8 different options. OH, and you can't believe how thick the front shock tower is! This thing is rock solid. The new bellcrank design is pretty ingenious too. This is going to be one sweet car.

$220 and no more graphite parts??

Yes, I know it has all of the titanium and aluminum do-dads, but I wonder why they dropped the graphite parts, unless the new composite is stronger AND just as light.

From what I can see, the front tower locations look identical to those on the Trinity XXX front shocktower (the blue carbon one for the BK2). Same stock positions with an additional outer hole. That makes sense considering Travis normally ran the Trinity tower on his car. I'm kinda disappointed with the rear shocktower, though. If they were going to add a fourth hole, why not go the extra mile and change up the rear shocktower to have a skip-gear type attachment? Then they could have saved money on the new mold by attaching the new ballstud mount to the exsisting rear tower.

They decided to go back to a tranny case that doesn't break when you look at it..
