Default You guys are forgetting to read all the posts

I have seen the car run with a TC4 on the track. Both cars looked good for this being the first week both drivers had the cars. Everyone that has reported seeing the car in action has nothing but positive things to say.

Fact: the new Losi is as fast if not faster than the last Losi.

Fact: with the TC4 associated has fixed the majority of the problems with the TC3 and everything the factory drivers were doing to the car has been incorporated into the new kit.

Fact: In the states there is no HPI racer support outside of Hara who has found a loop hole to race US nats but we all know he cannot truely be considered from the US.

Fact: Since we are comparing cars the Pro 4 and the R 40, the drivers that picked up those cars locally got less competitive.

Fact: Losi and AE have a full paid race team that doubles as a R&D team.

Fact: Both companies mission statements include producing the worlds best racing cars. (Losi even said they would never make a RTR car, but I guess the profit from the rtr market place was too much for them to resist).

Default Yes loop hole

How long was he so called living in the us before the 2003 gas nats. Just the time mandated by roar. He came hear for one thing and one thing only. To win titles for HPI.

not sure how you say this is a fact....


JRXS, Pro4, TC4, ect....it's all the same. every car gets better and evolves. no one car is ever going to just blow the market and competition away on the track and in the stores.

I agree. It was a very smart move by HPI. Hara is also very helpful at all the races he attends. My hats off to HPI for that move.
I am all for loop holes, I search for them on my taxes every year.

It looks like Losi's new tourer is going to sell for approx $350.00
there should be more legit info on the car in the next couple of days. I understand it will be on display at the trade show next week with approximate delivery around Christmas
I will post info as soon as I get it, of course I 'll see it the same time as everyone else.
