I retract my previous statement, they actually took the time to design a different vehicle, and it's about time there was some competition for the stampede.

I think this will be fun for a truck that can run in stadium class for my little daughter. Something that tumbles and jumps. I like the stampede but I have so many Losi now so I like to stick with a brand for parts compentrey<- is that a word . I am sure folks would have liked to see a corr, but I think
Losi taking the stance of if we don't join them maybe it will die out as a class?
I still like to see them take the design of the losi 8 and convert it to a corr truck. But I neither work for them or invest in them . Its when a company stops putting out cars that you worry .

Not an expert. Just my opinion.

I said it "looks like a fragile stampede"... I didnt say it IS a fragile stampede.


Sorry.... Didnt realize that this thread was only for positive opinons. I'm done now anyway. No interest to me.

Looks pretty cool. It looks much better than the stampede but that could be the paint job talking. Let's just hope it has the durability too. That's one thing that will become importing for this truck--durability.

I am not a losi guy at all but I have to say that the aluminum body shocks look better than the stampede's plastic body shocks.

Make sure not to state your own opinions when a die hard Losi guy is around...LOL

and yes I would have to agree with the other guy that it dose look weak. I like that body however.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions , maybe it`s just me but I don`t call anything cheap junk or even good until I see it personally .

But ya how dare you call a Losi cheap ! J/K

money could have better spent designing a CORR truck like the associated to actually be able to make a class with them.
