Jukka - He might have finished 10th off-road now, but he was a large part of the design team for the Losi 8th car (he works for Losi now)

I have heard the BK is very very sick, and unable to race at all

I have been out of the hobby for many years. When I left Sanyo 2000's were the new battery out there. The B3 and XXX buggies had just been introduced.

Now it is many years later, and Losi hasn't really introduced anything new. All they have is a new new touring car, some small updates to the XXX buggy, and the mini truck kits.

It's seems as if they no longer have any direction. There is no mention of Gil Losi on the website. The old California address is still on the website, along with the address for horizon.

What is going on? They used to be tough competition for Associated, now they are nowhere. Now they are developing a 1/8th scale nitro kit. Why?

The class that has always mattered the most is 1/10th scale mod buggy.
Team Losi was acquired by Horizon Hobby Distributors a few years ago. This has opened a lot more resources for Team Losi. Gil losi Sr. has retired as of January 2006. He now enjoys spending time with his hot rods, grandchildren and family.

Gil Losi Jr is still there as he has always been. He is head of the race program and still is the innovator of many new ideas.
