Default WHO WANTS A REAL CORR. TRUCK FROM LOSI?

I know losi has the desert truck wich is a cool truck butt we all know its not allowed in the corr. class, i think if losi could/would build a corr. truck off the xxxcr chassis and wrap it all up in a losi RTR. package with their 2.4 spectrum radio and velinium brushless motor/esc system they could stand a chance at having a real nice and good selling corr. truck. are there any losi lovers left out there? it would be good for this massive growing class i think

This would be a great kit. Hopefully they are looking at the early options from Traxxas and AE and looking to hit one out of the park.

First of all, the VXL is a Traxxxas system. I really wouldnt see why they would put a brushless motor in a corr truck, really takes the fun out of it if you race. How much though....

They are focusing on 1/8 buggy and truggy now.

Now that I think about it, someone put the Losi Desert Truck body on their XXX-T , I am not sure how they put it on there, but it looked pretty funny and was fast. Afterall the XXX-T is quote a stadium truck

When Losi was designing the Desert Truck, they had a thought of a full body, but thought it wouldn't sell!!!

They missed the boat!!!!

They are working on one now!!!!

Hope it isn't to little or to late!!!!

I think they should have several build options. Kit, completed rolling chassis and two different RTR options, one brushless and one not. I would want this just to cover all the different price ranges and various potential buyers out there.

The RTR would have the newbies/bashers covered. The kit and completed rolling chassis could get the racers covered. And we get another company getting into the "scale" short-course class(es).

I would really like to see it happen to keep the competition and interest in the class evolving. Plus, it would give all the AE elitists another target to bash...

Default losi corr

i would love to see it. i'm sure it's just a matter of time. let's face it, if the slash would have bombed i don't think you would have seen the sc10. i'm all for more realistic r/c cars. everytime i bring someone new to the track they have a hard time telling the buggies apart from the trucks.
