Nice Chris looks great...... You will love it!

Your eyes see good old reliable Losi....... But it's Brand New TLR Race Technology

What you cant see is how awesome it drives.... Looks are deceiving ...
Its incredible.

What about the new buggy do you attribute the faster times to? Does it corner better, jump better, handle everything better, handle better in rough sections etc?

I've had a couple of outings now with the 3.0 on a local track that I am very familiar with the layout. I'll do my best to explain. There are a few corners that are 180's with a off cambers and some mid-high speed sweepers that I always felt like I had to force the 2.0 to steer. On the low speed 180's I would have to goose the throttle to get the rear to break loose and come around ( it worked, but not always consistently).
The 3.0 requires a lot less steering input- everywhere. I can now push it much harder cause of the steering. Charging into a corner the 2.0 pushed like a dump truck, but I feel more confident knowing that the 3.0 is going to rotate. I believe this is due to the additional caster.

If you can afford the price tag, pick one up. imo

my 2 cents.

I have yet to think to myself "I wish my 3.0 drove like my 2.0." It is an altogether better package. I still have my 2.0 all cleaned up and ready to go with electronics. I would only have to plug in a battery, but I haven't been tempted.

Sounds like I need to drive one to compare to my current losi. Plus I have a new tekno buggy on the way so I might forget all about losi after driving that lol.

Most parts are in stock at HH. Except the castor blocks and rear dogbones. The front center dogbones are suppose to be in stock by the end of the month. What are you looking for?

I just got all off my spare parts from my lhs that were available this week. They told me that the front center dog bone would be available at the end of may. They did not say when the rear dog bone/ axle set would be out. I ordered the rears as a tuning option but not sure I really need it at this point, just figured it would be an interesting experiment.
