I still can't get over all the bashing of Losi/Horizon. If they are changing then so what? Companies that last end up changing, companies that don't change, don't last. If they aren't making what you want to buy then go buy it from somebody else. I'd also bet that nobody in the whole Horizon complex wears a suit on a normal work day (where do you guys get this stuff?).

i listened to the sound on their site and to me it sounds like a jet engine they could just put a sound for no reason just so it sounds cool. when the emaxx countdown thing was up everyone thought it was a boat or some sort of amphibious car and in the end it turned out to be something that noone ever thought of or mentioned so it could be anything. so i dont know if its a crawler or some other car but losi might not spend the time designing another car so they could rip off some other company which seems to be pretty popular these days. but if the sound is of the thing they made then it could be and electric dragster, the sound is smooth and it sounds like it passes you fast.

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 can tell you it won't be a new TC. The current one has not even been out a year yet and they disbanded the TC team in the sense there are no more paid drivers, just local sponsered drivers that pay their own way to get to races. Plus there is no one there to do any R&D on a new TC.

That blows my mind that Losi has shrunk their racing team down. Heck, 7 or 8 years ago they use to sponsor so many people and now they are getting away from that. I was always an Associated guy but the fact that Losi is getting away from the racing aspect kind've bums me out a bit.
Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread.

Losi is not doing anything per say it is Horizon just taking everything in a different direction and not necessarily for the good imo.

I think it is just called losi because Gil Losi Jr. left losi, it is no longer a father/son team it is just a father.

Yeah, that's what I said on the first page. But since the pic of the Lil Mug is out and on the Nitro off-road someone confirmed that someone they know who knows a guy that works at a hobby store in this one town said it's the Lil Mug. But what do ya do? LOL. I'm sticking with the E-8ight.
