Team Losi 1/8 scale buggy
The rumors are true that Team Losi is planning to build an 1/8 scale buggy. I can't wait to see what kind of innovation and technology can put into a nearly perfected platform.

Where did you see that? I figured Horizon would just keep going with the Mayhem which seems to sell pretty well.

It's in the new RC Car action magazine in the racing news section towards the back.

I almost wonder if it will have oversized shocks. They work really well on the LST.

I seen the ad also, I cant wait to see the car hopefully later this year, If it looks good I'll be one of the first in line to get one. I bet Associated wont be far behind, which is a good thing. Instead of the xxx and b4 battling it will be losi and associated 1/8's, now that will be good

well since thunder tiger bought associated I dou bt they'll come out with a associated 1/8th since that have a thunder tiger 1/8th scale allready...

mountaindr3wz 06-25-2005 06:35 PM

anyone have a link to what it looks like? and how much

Mountaindr3wz- There not even in production yet, so there probably isn't much about it. Give it about 3 months, after they get all the problems and things worked out. Remember, the pros have to help them add features and have to give the prototype a real beating to see what needs to be improved.

Is this certain or still just a rumor? I don't have my RCCA yet, so I can't read it for myself.

squirrel 06-27-2005 08:11 AM

It's pretty certain I heard a rumor from a reliable source a while ago that they were working on one.

I dont' see an AE 1/8 scale buggy coming out as well. Not with the TT deal.

Now, if AE would do a 1/10 scale 4wd buggy, that would be a class that woudl really take off.

mountaindr3wz 06-28-2005 02:05 PM

i dont think ae would make a 4wd buggy because of the bj4 which associated drivers use

L.Fairtrace 06-28-2005 02:15 PM

I dont want to sound pessimistic here but. Think JRXS. :flaming: Losi has never made an 1/8 scale and I bet they will want to make something great so its gonna take a while. Don't expect this car for a year or more.

Cain 06-29-2005 05:44 AM

even with the BJ guys vehicle, I would say they may be more inclined than say a 1/8 scale buggy as the BJ guys don't own AE like TT does.

I would like to see a 1/10 and 1/8 from AE direct, but, both are very remote possiblities right now. Heck, have a better chance seeing some other 1/18 scale option for the RC18T than either of the buggies or even a new RC10GT!

DA_cookie_monst 06-29-2005 08:20 AM

Well, being AE is a bigger 'BRAND' it wouldn't be hard for TT to launch a NEW glafship under the AE brand.....

As for the Losi, interesting, seems they are breaking out everywhere with bespoke new chassis's/
