It is only a wiffle bat. It stings more.

The r/c paparazzi are a little more tame

This was a car that was found at the track some time back, no telling what it is but has everything but the kitchen sink in it.

Can anyone name all of the parts and its manufacturer on this thing?

Losi's very first car was a plate chassis. The JRX2. Also they had the JRX2 PRO and the JRXT (first racing truck in a kit) that had a plate chassis. Later came the molded chassis for the JR buggy and the JRT truck. These were entry level cars that used the molded chassis for cost reduction. Once the team guys started running the molded chassis it was then released in the JRX2 PRO SE buggy and LXT truck. Been molded chassis ever since early '90's. Sorry, I'm old and have been running Losi's since the JRX2 days! LOL

when losi first came out with the xxxs the prototypes were flat woven grafite.. everything like tranny housings, steering ect ect were aluminum... i know this for a fact.. they had two fo them at the chicago hobbyshow a few years back..i saw them with my own eyes .... it is alot cheaper to make a prototype out of flat woven grafite and aluminum, then it is to have a mold made for testing... a mold can cost upwards of 50 grand... why do that and find out the chassis dont work.....

Todd- I do have one serious question about the new car. Will it be released as a G+ or have all the titanium and stuff like the BK2 and MF2 kits do? Fingers crossed here hoping your answer is yes.

If you see Todd coming at you, just jingle a set of car keys at him and he will get distracted very quickly. LOL
