That chassis looks to be a production piece, the arms and shock towers are machined prototypes by the looks of them. Looks like it won't be long before LOSI has this truck on the hobby shop shelves.

Hopefully they will bring it to production in time for me to put one under the Christmas tree................for myself

Bye bye ST-R..........HELLO 8T

So it looks like the Muggy ends up being pointless?

Not realy, the MUGGY is a RTR aimed at the basher and club racer.

Truggy was a 1/8 buggy converted to a truck. The new term is now 1/8 Stadium truck as manuf. have built dedicated trucks.


Monster trucks are Revo's, LSTs, MGT's and the like.

Alright, thats what I thought... so Adam is running the Muggy in the MT class, then the 8ight T in the 1/8 truck class...

I think the Losi team are running the LST2 in MT class. The muggy looks more like a 1/8 truck then a MT. Seems kind of strange that the MT class is mostly based on RTR kits with all the big guns driving them.
