Very awesome car. I will be getting one when it comes out

Materials look very similiar to the xxx-s prototype, but hopefully like a lot of you are saying, it will stay cf plate.

that looks nice but all those parts are probably not going to be included in the kit also most of those parts are only available for team drivers

Default I think Losi should have designed....

the diff braces to be a two piece system. One you could more easily remove the diffs from the car. My two cents.

Thats the XXX-S prototype. Not the JRXS.

i used that picture to show the similiar construction of the two prototypes. they went over to a molded chassis last time but i hope they stick with the cf plate for this one.

Its innovative but its UGLY!

I like how the OVA car looks...right after reading about how much of a dog it was (LOL)

This really defies the K.I.S.S concept but it looks like Losi took concepts other companies made but couldn't take develop and took full advantage of it. Smart....

Gotta give Losi credit here....

Give them credit for making an unpopular design mainstream, but its not successful yet. We'll see how hard it is to work on, durability, etc. I like the risk though.

that car is the xxxsgp prototype. not the new car. I know this for a fact. if you save the picture of that car, it states yatabe losi prototype. yatabe arena as in japan, THIS IS NOT THE NEW CAR.

It's hard to see all the features it has... but it's looks very near production kit to me. If a few more another drivers have car to run now. Losi probably fishing any suggestions from another drivers for last minute changes..

Perhaps the jrxs looks a lil like the ova, but i think in terms of concept, it is lot more closer to pro3. just hope losi can get it right from the start

SRS- I think that he was stating that the materials are the same in both prototypes from Losi's past 2 touring cars, not that the car that he posted is the prototype all the hype is about. I could be wrong though.

Default No they don't read

They just post.
Losi is swearing it will not have a plastic chassis. But then again a certain associated rep swore on his mom there was no TC4. I know mugen USA had no idea they were going to release a MTX-3 Pro spec.
What the marketing team and decesion makers decide to do is who will make the final decesion. But for now we can only wait and see what happens at the worlds.

Unless those molded diff carrier/bulk heads are going to plug into the molded chassis... the car will be carbon. From Losi's previous designs, the bulkheads would have been part of the chassis...

the car will be carbon.
