I think I can make an educated guess

Thanks for all your help over the year/s, your site really has helped a LOT of people in the UK convert to a car that the distributor doesn't want to support! I'd personally say your site and racechat serve two completely different purposes. I'd like to hope that yours remains in its current state - but can expand to feature the same information for your new manufacturer! I think the 'resource' nature of the site is second to none out there, for ANY make of car.

Good luck with the new ride!

TBH, I have no intention of making it a race chat replacement.. but given that they currently don't seem to be allowing any non-paying-members to post in some sections, just trying to help out a little... if it gets no posts, I'll trim the forum back

Ed-

This would imply that Losi is releasing a new or updated Touring car...is this true?

OK back to blue love!

Can you at least tell us the layout? Is it going to be similar to the 416 or sticking to the center batt layout like the type-r? I think TC design has reached an apex and something new and refreshing would be nice. It'd be nice if durango made one too.

I'm sure the design must be different enough to compel you to move away from a proven platform. regardless, thanks for all the info from your site.

I have to admit...reading all your comments I chuckled...

Nope, no new Losi TC for the time being... simply a Type-R.

This is purely a UK based thing for now... but we have some ideas on things to tweak, and if we can the current car working well (and in all honesty having driven one, it's better than you think!), who knows

lol sneaky there. The tigermoth was going in a neat direction too. I love my 416, but little tired of the same old layout. Perhaps the the reason why the new FF03 appeals to me so much. Probably not as fast as the current TC, but something new. BTW, the type-r is not slow by any means. We got 2 running at my local track, and they are podium finishers. Too bad losi didn't develop more off of it, and changed to metric hardware

Default Sepc R gear diff

I would like to know if some of you saw this diff?

I was looking at red rc today and a couples of pages back on it found this.

Can someone post something about it?
