The Losi crawler at the moment is nothing. No one has had the vehicle in their hands driving it long enough to say that this will be the best crawler ever or be better then the Axial. We have no clue how the worm gears will hold up or the rest of the truck it self. Even the stuff I said before is all just an assumption what I think how it will be. Until it is actually released will be the proof. It's looks promising, but many things do and then when they get released are a flop.

Not true, I know 2 people right now that have had it since January, and use and test the crap out of it, and believe me, it's one hell of a 2.2 Comp truck.

I have a definite "bias" toward the MOA type of axles.

They are a superior design IMO.

The Losi is a nice rig, but it's still a shafty.

I stand corrected.

Losi 2.2 won the OCRCRC comp. #2 a day or so ago. Good news for future owners like myself.

No I wasn't there. But I know the driver that won. He is a friend of mine. Rich placed 13th out of 32.

Here is some eye candy - Rich driving the Losi and the OCRCRC event.

13th even better! I have been wanting to see video so bad of these crawlers in action, got any more or know where to get some with the losi 2.2 besides the rcaction vid on youtube. That rear dig will come in handy, some people think it is a waste but there was proof it is not. Thanks fella.

Our site, as in this site or your site? I'm a little new to this site and can't find the video section if there is one? I'm kind of a computer jack a$$ sorry.
