I never had any problems with my losi. If you don't count getting the wrong diff springs in the kit a problem. Oh, or every time I bump a wall a c hub breaking or a link popping off it's ball.

That all said it is a fast car, and easier to setup than my new photon. But when I make changes to the photon I can see them.

If losi made a wider range of spurs for it I would probably still be running it.

But I don't think I would buy another anytime soon.

Horizon gave up on the sedan market when the sedan market was bigger than present.

why Horizon will make a new car in dawn of touring race?

there is no Team Losi race team, It's only a Brand name Losi, a division of Horizon hobby distributor.

also wanted to say the Losi don't need to make a new car.

theri current model is far better than any TC from the basic design.

not only a Battery being in middle a motor that spins at great amount of gyro effect is on right front and center of rear wheel, harder you excel more grip is creating equally on both of rear wheels.

of cos there is more like having double caden joint as standard item or the kit price is much cheaper than any other racing TC.

if you are in the market for a electric TC you should consider type-r one more time.

What about the short arm sweep, huge width diff, left to right balance due to difference in ESC- receiver weight, no support team..

Sure its cheap. But if your gonna invest in a car now. Why not invest in something where the team is investing back into the racers?

I think the car have more than enough traction, no need of longer arms to gain more, either Diff or dongbone need to make 190mm in width together, I actually like short bones for their one way. it s like 1inch in length

ESC on left side servo tilt to right side and RX with few leads makes better or easier to balance than any ordinary TC.

we have a small group of racers in this RCtech along with company called flyingfox does produce few parts for us other than that you right there is no surpport from the factory.

the type-r has been great for many of us and if you don't mind look diffrent than this machine can be a winner in your hand

Not sure if i would ever buy a losi again,.....
mini lst had bad diffs from the get go, servos sucked. mine sat on the shelf for a year cuz i was sick of changing diffs after EVERY battery pack

Comp crawler had bad spools, bad cvd's, ate motors for breakfast.

Muggy had cheap aluminum chassis and bad cheap servo tray, right out of the box it had bad clutch got way to hot and clutch shoes were garbage, the wheels were to big and to heavy for the drive train.

First edition 8ights T's and B's would eat brake/throtle servos if you didn't set them perfect and I mean PERFECT.

The only losi i had luck with was the LST.

I'll just stick with tamiya as far as a TC.
