[B]To answer both questions, no this is not a current prototype.

Any dates on the rumored car? I don't recall exactly who I was talking with, but I heard either late this year or early next. Aren't they also working on a nitro?

Like I said, as far as I know, they don't really have a new car in the works. They were just testing some new ideas. They do that kind of thing all the time. I don't work for Losi but I know some of their team drivers and this is the info I've been given. I honestly doubt they're going to have a new car for quite some time. It'll take a lot to top what they've already got. Losi is a company that will only release a new car if it surpasses what they're currently making. They're not a car-of-the-month company like Tamiya or Yokomo.

I wish. I was going to try and go but money issues kept me from going. Not having factory sponsorships, I would be footing all bills myself. Wouldn't have been able to get the time off work either. Oh well, next year.

Oh, and far as a nitro goes, that wouldn't surprise me. I've heard some rumors about it but being an electric guy, personally, I could care less about it. Nitro's not my thing.

I've only been racing a year and a half. I ran a tc3 earlier, now i run a xxx-s gp there are a couple of us sponsered by our hobby shop but they really can't send us out. We're in the same boat. We just got our track in and we're looking for a counting system so we can get some racinig at the shop.

I've got Fukuyama sponsorship for batteries and I can get help in other areas, but the travel expenses and tires for a week of racing are what kill me.

BTW, you made a good switch I made the same switch a little over a year ago. Best thing I ever did in racing.

Good thread guys....lots of interesting info. And seeing photos of everyone's stuff is always fun, too. Cool to see that old Losi prototype again that they ran in Japan a few years ago...

PSI- I posted a pretty extensive rollout chart for the Losi a few months ago on the XXXS thread...it should still be on there. And it includes rollouts for foam tires down to like 53 or 54 mm.

How did you get sponsered by them and what do you have to do for them?

A friend was sponsored by them and got me to buy a few packs. I ended up pitting with them at a few races and Dan and I started talking and got to be friends and he offered to put me on the team. Part of being a team driver is helping people on and off the track (forums like this) with questions about the products and other things. Going to whatever big races I can get to and representing to company in a positive manner.
