Anybody know when they are coming out with a xxx-s francis or kinwald edition or maybe a Ryan Cav. edition?
How cool would this be.

It'll be under the Spashett name if any driver at all...

I hope it is Spashett because if Losi put any red anodised stuff on it that's a reason for the car to go slower!

What's wrong with the red stuff? Kinwald has the blue Matt has the red so Losi would have to come up with another color.

If Losi does come out with a special edition of the XXX-S I'd imagine it would be the Paul Lemieux edition.

Why? Kinwald's already got a special edition and so does Matt. Paul Lemieux won the ROAR nationals with the XXX-S (it's debut race) and so far has done as well or better than Spashett with the car. Also consider the fact that Spashett jumped ship and ran a Yokomo at the world's last time around and I'd have to put my money on Lemieux getting the nod.

Yup, I'd have to agree. Didn't Lemieux put the car on the map with a win at the ROAR Nats last year?

Francis does run onroad. He finished in the top 3 this year at the Reedy Race (onroad) and did well at the ROAR Nats last year. Although it is not a specialty, he can wheel a sedan with the best of them

I guess you haven't kept up with onroad racing with in the last year. Matt has run carpet, outdoors, and he is also running gas sedan.

I would think they would go with Paul, since they would be effectively creating a new personality on the team. They already have Kinwald and Francis established, so why not get Lemieux's name out there a bit more? Trnity already has him featured in ads in RCCA, and on the P2K2 Pro motor packaging.

They could call it a fred bloggs edition for all I care, but i bet theres a lot of people out there who are waiting for one, who don't fancy buying a car then straight away changing the shocks and the chassis components to get it right.

Why would it have to have someones name on it? I seem to remember a few years back they released kits that had all of the cool guy options on it and had no ones name with it. Also look at the XX4 Worlds Edition, whos name is on it?
If Losi releases a XXX-S with all of the hop ups they do not have to put anybodys name on it in order for it to sell. The car is awesome and will sell itself.

Talking Just make it!!!

Lets see, $300.00 FT TC3 or Plastic-XXXS plus all the graphite, threaded shocks, Nitride shock shafts, shock pistons, etc for close to $420.00. Its not going to take long for even Losi to figure that one out!!! But I would guess it will come out too late to help all of us running the US INdoor Champs on Thanksgiving weekend!!!

I am not comparing the FTTC3 vs. XXXS for those wankers who want to start a fight-I am just comparing what you get for your money!!! But I think it took Associated awhile to bring out the Factory Team car as well. Ho-hum!!!
