the new car looks sweet! if its a stiff as they say it is, should be dialed for carpet between that and the short arms. like the uplimiters too.

it looks like you can flip the pin mounts for low and high roll centers...

I was told by someone that saw it up close, that the car is so adjustable in so many ways, to include belt tension, roll center. was also told the pictures do not do the car justice.

From what I keep reading it will be the double decker chassis plates.A composite tub I think would cost more to produce just because of the tooling/mold work that would need to be done to produce a tub.Car looks very nice.

A tub car would be cheaper to produce in the long run. It's creating the mold that costs the most.

On long term, a moulded chassis will always be cheaper. It's also much quicker to produce a single part, once the mold have been produced it's only a matter of seconds between two chassis to be produced, whereas it takes much more time to cut a woven carbon fibre plate (not to mention the shock towers and top deck...).

One4u2nv - Yes you can run a stick pack in an Xray. I asked the question because the XXXS had that cool feature that didn't limit the battery style. Just wondering if Losi was going to include some trick battery tray for stick packs.

But by doing a carbon fiber plate you have open doors to many more people running the cars. How many people that like BMI or Warpspeed or anything like that run a Losi. No one. Now if they do a car like that many more people will buy their car and have access to an after market chassis. Just one more way to increase sales. A good thing

It'll be interesting to see the final moulding of the plastic/graphite chassis when its done.

David Spashett ran the car at a meeting that was run next to a big touring car race (1:1 scale) yesterday. The Losi looked really good but it did pop a balljoint off a few times though the day?
There was a TC4 there aswell but non of the AE team guys ran it.
a 1/12th pan car is direct drive, regardless of the long lay shaft, it can never be inefficient.

I guess the large pulleys and diffs will make up for the long layshaft as explained to me onour thread.

Hope they could come up with a release date.
Good Luck to Losi and their new car.

Peace to all and Happy Racing.

I see where you can flip the arm/pivot blocks for roll adjustment. Looks like they're threaded all the way through.
They're aluminum but will prolly be graphite plastic in the production model to lower kit costs.
