It is 2 belts and is nothing like the XXX-S at all. Total new design. Lots of adjustments and will be very well balanced.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

And to see Matt tuning it was a highlight of my racing season. He and Todd Hodge are soooooooo thoughty about developing their setups. And they share that knowledge to keep us Losi guys up there in the race results.

As soon as they are taking pre-orders...I'm there. I assume that will be sometime soon after Chicago show.

Hey..racers.. damn this car is baaddd ass. forget your tc4's, evo 4's, cgm's, xrays, smokomos, schmauchers. don't even bother looking for a new TC this year..

the sucka's light years ahead.. feel sorry for the guys at the upcoming IFMAR worlds.

Just watching it work the track looks like all TC companies will have to rethink what a TC is!

how this for specs.

outta the box 1/2 oz under weight just enough for a transponder! Doh!

Centerline everything..batts motor servo

50/50 weigth distribution front to rear.

super efficient belts so quiet you can hear a pin drop!

Un tweakable new tech design top deck.

unsprung weight the minimum possible

Holy smoke fast battery tray.. it will frerak you out when you see how it mounts.

Losi has uncorked a big one.. Bad ass doesn't even come close to describing the car.

drool boys.. you'll need a box of wet naps.! maybe even two rolls of Charmin!

Badboy snuck in...Camera won't work anymore after that either.

Badboy came up with new setup parameters for his XXX-S that look pretty good. Did it all himself today and will certainly be someone to reckon with for you fast guys.

The picture I didn't post was MF threatening me with his Xacto which means he only had one hand over the car at the time.

Default I can see the long diffs...

since the front pulley is way to the left. Maybe Losi did what HPI never got done. I remember the HPI having a problem with the long off set belts and long diffs. It had alot of torque steer and bad tracking. I also remember a mag quoting the same problem. Personally, I like the option of using a seven cell pack for street bashing. Big question for me is how easy will it be to work on? I hate complicated motor/gear changes . I wonder if the motor will be all closed up from a tunnel type chassis. Motor cooling was an issue with their frist TC

This car shouldn't have any problems with torque steering. Their diffs are not as long as the HPI ones were. Just a way better design than the Pro3 ever had. Plus the motor is not in the rear like the Pro3. It is mid motor.

Default It will be....

interesting to see this thing then. Where do they put the speedo and receiver then? Everything down the center? Are they going with a molded tub chassis?
