Maybe they were looking for a LOS (losi) part number instead of a TLR part number?

Give them a ring tomorrow and they should be able to get you one!
Ya, thats weird they couldnt find it...i woulda whipped out the phone and looked it up and never thought about them looking up a LOS part #....whoops, lol

And yeah there are a bunch of FORMER Losi drivers on that thread and we all sit around the ole campfire and sing Kumbaya sipping hot chocolate talking about all our race victories .

Oh Lord kumbaya !
Really...coming here and saying the truck didnt place(which might be true- i cant deny or confirm) and commenting on how Losi/TLR didnt have drivers at the race and this was a big race blah blah blah...Of course there will be other trucks on the podium it hasnt even been released and a handful of team drivers have them and we(the public) are still waiting for it to release so your relying on those handful of guys to all be at the one race...doubt it.

On the other hand...the OTHER truck has been out for a month or so now, right, maybe longer? I would hope it would being doing something since its been out and those team drivers have pry had theirs for awhile

And all the guy asked was "Was the team running the new 2.0 truck at Nitro Challenge?" and that was it if you want to be technical and quote people

Always glad to help!

tc5 man-- No one has a problem with side fins. It is rear downforce wings or spoilers that are the issue. These are something people are adding to the truck that are not part of a stock SC body.

Default No to spoilers/wings on short course trucks

I for one got into the hobby b/c these rc vehicles looked damn near identical to the bigger, stronger, fire breathing bretheren of modern day off road short course racing trucks!
Whimsical Whoops; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFHvu...rec_grec_index

The marriage of scale looks to exceedingly high scale performance is what got me into this rc racing class, deviating from this could eventually lead to the sct class demise. Sure there are no solid axels or gas motors, but the suspension
and other components make it more scale looking and performing than any other era in racing for this hobby.

I kick started my love to the hobby by bashing around an rc sct, than got into monster rc trucks to also bash with, than I went to the track with my 1st 2wd sct,
and eventually ended up moving into the hobby's facet of racing, which meant spending more for the high performance type of rc sct 's available in the market.

I feel that these trucks should be highly prohibited from using wings, b/c then where will the buck stop? Eventually, they will revert to the ufo looks of a stadium truck or buggy.
If you want that sort of thing than join a buggy or stadium truck class, and get your open wheels and wings tied up in a knot.
Just like the real 1/1 scale trucks, we have fenders which can allow for some inadvertent bumping and rubbing while sliding into a corner,
which usually equates for me to good ole clean racing fun with scale battles and action, which you cant really get or experience with the heavily popular open wheel vehicles that dominate our tracks, (hacking is not what i'm talking about).

If the short course buggy class were to ever take off, than i would most likely start racing a sc buggy. Dont get me wrong though, I do however
appreciate the engineering and performance that goes into the premier racing classes of this hobby, its just they just look like ufo's,
and that is a big reason why I dont race in those classes yet.

Everything is shipping out of the CA warehouse. We did this rather than waiting until next week. It should ship out today.

Wow! That was fast! Good job TLR!

Do you have any idea when they will be available in Europe? Do they come from the US or get directly here?
