And 15year-old Kyle Boice is an AE driver got sponsored after winning at the Cactus! Also he beat some top drivers from both AE and Losi at the Losi race last weekend, like Robbers and I think Truhe plus battle with Ryan C. and M. in the second heat.

Yep that's who I was talking about. Dakotah is a great kid, with great parents. Can't wait to watch him in another five years or so!! He's been beating me around the track since he was six or so : )~

Losi still has a great team. Just because they lost one driver doesn't mean they are falling apart. There buggy and truggy have been succesfully winning races all around the country and still are.

And I am not biased since I don't own a Losi vehicle but this is just my look at it.

It should be cheaper, considering their main R&D costs were a kit and a set of calipers.

Are you referring to the Durango with Schumacher suspension, aluminum tub chassis, raised driveline, upright servo, motor located front/left, and sideways saddle packs in the middle/rear? That seems a whole lot different to me.

Losi wont fall apart, they still have that Waldron dude
So does HB have a new buggy in development? The current car available is quite dated.

Dakota Phend won the 4wd class at Leisure Hours yesterday. I was told he is 10 years old now.

For this years ROAR National he signed up for Stock Truck, Junior Stock Buggy and 19t 4WD.

So just change the direction and location of the saddle packs? What about the other basic design elements I pointed out?
