But I have personally put in the RTR tower, the EA3 XXX-TCR and the Graphite tower with both cases. Did not have to shave any of them. Sometimes there will be flashing on the towers that make it hard to get it in there and it is always a very tight fit when new.
Casper,
you mean if I now break my XXX-T CR's pivot block and order a new one, my rear toe in will change?

Thanks,
Avner.

Why can't we see some durability testing with this thing?
Yes, Thursday is the announce date for our new products across all brands, including Losi.

I am working on coming up to the Spektrum Race as is Sonny Brown. If possible we're both going to try to have one of the new trucks there...we just have to talk to Keith really REALLY nicely for awhile.

Yes this will eventually be the case. There are a lot of 3 deg blocks out there. I am not sure if there is something they will be doing to mark them as different. The 4 deg block I was given to test was not marked at all but that may change.

don't forget you can still get the losa4149 Aluminum 3deg pivot. It's around 20 bucks but still 3deg.

Love it, got my name on one as soon as it arrives at the local hobby store.
Im more than happy with the 2wd, up here they are way more popular than the 4wd. I also have 2 xxxt's sitting on the shelf that I grab parts off of ++.
Hey and Casey can you post up the setups, tips and tricks and stuff.

sure will. Let me see if I can get the sheet all scanned in and posted

So far no real tricks, the xxx chassis is tried and true and pretty straight forward. I will keep everybody updated as I go though.

Glad to see the interest in the truck.

Brad is definately a great guy and a superb painter. I have known him since 93. Awesome work and cheap as well!

I'm confused after watching the preview video, the Losi Rep. says they used shorter A Arms to achieve the narrower width, then he says you can use the old VLA Arms off the MF1,2 or CR , that doesn't make any sense ? Can someone explain this to me, thanks.

See I tried to tell everyone over a year ago that Losi was building and developing one these XXX-SCTs and no one believed me.

Default Preordered One today!!!

I currently have a losi xxxt-crc conversion made from a mf2. I ordered one of these trucks basically for the chassis , side bars , bumpers , wheels and body.
I figure I will frankenstein everything else from the conversion into the rtr.

As for the Losi Strike, Losi should create a buy back program to get those off the market and out of peoples hands!
