Yep. Look at the vehicles section on their website. The top half is "LOSI" which is the RTR's and the bottom half is "TEAM LOSI" which is the race kits.

I seriously doubt it will be a new TC since the Type R has not even been out a year yet. There really isn't a TC team anymore at Losi.

The words Team Losi will be gone as soon as the run out of the header cards they have left for parts for cars. Stuff is already coming to the LHS with just Losi cards on them. There really is no Team Losi anymore in the sense of paid drivers. Drake and Truhe are probably the only ones left. Dumas left the TC program about a month ago.

I thought they dropped the "Team" altogether after Jr. left?

Pretty much but they had alot of Team Losi header cards to use up I guess.

Man, I really hope so. I'd go for one if it uses standard sized servos, a .12 engine and it's cheaper than that friggin' CRT .5 that's my only gripe with the .5---it's price. I don't think it should cost as much as the 1/8 vehicles do.

I think they are hinting at an Electric 1/8 scale too. But that is just from the electric woooosh on their website. When you move your mouse over the "7 days until release" box, woooosh. IDK. Just because Novak released the 1/8 electric conversions a little while back.

So I have a dumb question, whose running losi if Losi Jr. is gone. They just released 3 new cars. I'm confused..

Please pardon me as I'm just getting back into racing and have had both the AE cars and Losi cars. I have always preferred the Losi cars, so that's the reason for my new soon to have XXXT-CR.

i believe those cars were already designed and done and then he left and all they did was just produce them.

this new one could be anything and i heard a few versions of what it might be, some say crawler some say lil mug some say new touring car some say new 4wd electric.

I think they should add a count down timer like Traxxas did to unveil the new E-Maxx. Just different colored clock so they don't imitate Traxxas. LOL.

Well judging by that sound I would say its electric. Can't really place the noise though. It doesn't sound like an electric 8th buggy, too quiet, and it doesn't sound like a racing 4wd buggy, too loud. More than likely the new car is a 4wd 1/18th buggy or truck.

My guess is a Brushless Stadium Truck.
It seems to be a pretty popular class.
