The body reminds me of the "heavy-metal truck" body Losi made for the XX4 back in the day. Does anyone remember that, or am I dating myself?

I still have the body at home from mine when I ran it at the Regionals. Wish I had a xx4 to put it on, it was cool watching them all run together.

Looks like a cool little rig.

But worthy of the Losi name?

What the hell is wrong w/ the people at Horizon?

It's like buying Porsche and then slapping the name on an econo-box POS!
