The photos weren't an accident but having them posted to the internet obviously was, especially for the owner of the car, who most likely just lost any chance of getting another factory sponsorship any time soon. I think it's a little late to be worrying about people getting in trouble...

I would pull the pics if Losi asked me to, but they have not. My guess is that with them out there, they will come up with something themselves. From a business standpoint, it's always better to be the one controlling the information.

The pics were surely meant to be taken, it wasn't running at the time (unless they took out the electronics every run )
and you dont just accidentally leave out a prototype car in the open for enough time for somebody to take that many good pics.

I heard the name JRXS and half expected the car to feature the Old 5-link rear suspension. LOL.

Hodge: I think you guys need a high profile durability tester for the new car. Maybe someone who announces at the US Indoor Champs, (that's the high profile part), and can completely thrash the car in the C or D main at the Champs, (there's your durability test!). I may know somebody who fits just that description......

I don't think durability will be a probelem with this car. I saw it take (or deal however you want to look at it) one of the hardest hit's I've ever seen a couple weeks ago at the Mazda cup.

Default This is funny

We all know hte car wont look like when it comes out. All there prototypes have had graphite chassis. Then when the car hits its back to plastic.
PS the whole car getting posted thing was an accident. Thats why the pictures came down from the original posts.

Speaking of pics. Where are the pics of the new X ray sedan. I also want to see the new Ofna/Hoboa 1/8th buggy

I spent the day at speedworld yesterday, It was just Matt Francis a friend of mine and me.

The car handled great from what I could see. This car is top-notch in every respect.
The car is gonna have a graphite plate chassis/towers/deck. The rest will be graphite plastic.

I can assure you, there will be no molded chassis. This will be a CF plate car.
