It would be nice for a manufacture to produce a product and it work great out of the box. Some companies do this very well(AE,HPI) but Losi's never have been great the first race. But fully expect them to quickly find a good setup and start winning. Not sure why people have to belittle a product before its released to the general public.

Default WOW... they're everywhere!

I just came back from the ROAR Region 12(Saturday) at Hesperia, and coming back tomorrow to race the mains... Man, the new Losi was everywhere in the race... I saw at least 5 or possibly 10 in the pits and racing!!! Talk about a full onslaught of the Losi camp... I believe Kinwald is TQ right now in Mod with this car! The others racing the chassis are also doing very well...

JRXS as revolutionary as TC4? haha.. what the??
I mean JRXS is revolutionary, but TC4 is not, it's more of an evolution of the TC3. Not saying it's bad, but just stating that it's a refined and better version of TC3

I will say, no NEW car out these days is a REVALATION in its own right, as since 1989, I think I have seen MOST basic concepts of chassis layout, and nothing is EVER a NEW design, more a refinement, the only time it is a revelation is if the car is a complete departure from the previous car, like the JRXS, whereas the TC4, is AE at its best, evolving a car over time, how many can say the B3 was a massive difference in design over the B2, and the B4 to the B3..... same with the Losi 2wd buggies from the XX.....

Funny, early than 1987, Keith Plested from PB racing had the Mini-mustang, which was a single belt drive, with a central transimission tunnel, with a chassis botled to it to hold cells/electrics, much the same as the xx4, xxx4...

Very true

But...

Around mid 1983, Hirobo had the Rock'N'Vega 44B, which was a single belt drive, with a central transmission tunnel, with a chassis bolted to it to hold cells/electrics, much the same....

Seems the more things change, the more they stay the same

Now don't get me started about spools, there was once a time when all 4wds used them, then no one liked them, and now.....

Andrew finished 2nd at the Classic. Appears he figured out a set up that suited him and the track. Nice job "G".
