Alls I'm saying, is that if you go to the losi website and you listen to the sound that happens when you move your mouse over the link. It does not make a 2 stroke engine sound. I clearly sounds electric and possibly on-road. Of course the sound may not even be of the new vehicle. If thats the case, then it very well my be an nitro muggy.

News flash ppl, 80-90% of the vehicles Losi has EVER sold, never see a race track. Backyard bashers are the main core of the business. Not just Losi's business, but all manufacturers. Can you say Traxxas? Say it with me people, 'T-Maxx'. If Losi/Horizon is going to focus on RTRs and bashers, well that's where the money is at, like it or not.

If it is an onroad car it will be some basher RTR for they are not working on a new TC. There is no one there to R&D it. Nor is there any Pro TC racers at Losi, unless you include Hodge. But last I heard he is no longer racing due to a promotion that does not allow him time.

Dumas is a Losi Factory pilot for TC and one of the best drivers in the world right now!

Hate to tell you Dumas left and is driving for Corally. There are no paid TC drivers for Losi.

Wow! I had not heard that! I guess Losi really has gone down the toilet. Of course, so has touring car , so I guess I can't blame them for disbanning the team.

Just because someone posted a pic of the LiL Mug on here, it doesn't mean that's exactly what Losi is releasing. Only Losi people know what's coming out and why they put items on there website. We'll know in a couple days.

Dumas didn't 'leave' Losi. They told him back in like Sept. that they were not renewing his contract at the end of '07. Glad he found a new ride already. Corally TC's rule!

Losi was messing with an e-8ight about 6 months ago. I'll put my money on that.

Oh, I forgot about the tires they released. LOL. Good possibility.

I'm sticking with my original guess on page one. Electric 8ight. This is just for fun right?
