Nice!

Kinda looks like something that would come out of the XRay stables or even from Japan. I like that all business look. No purple, red or blue stuff for me thank you.


Surely just the pic of the production car is sure to hurt sales of the up-coming TC4.


Losi is just blasting away with their engineering skills again nowadays with the BK2, MF2 and now the JRXS and AD2 and i'm sure the design team at AE(and everybody else for that matter) are a bit phazed. I wonder how can anybody keep on top of these guys. I'm impressed and this is coming from a former AE diehard.

WOW....can you say BADASS!! Losi has done it again. To think I was seriously contemplating on getting that TC4!....good things come to those who wait.
Looks trick....I like the new shocks....but will it use the regular springs?

after lookin at the photo of the production version, i have only one lil complaint to make.. i think they should've kept the aluminium suspension blocks from the prototype, not the plastic ones on this production version. Aluminium: better looking, less flex, setting will stay true

Nice looking car.....

There will always be a demand for a high $$$ car.....
A complete TC out of the box is worth a lot more in my opinion.

How many people have $349 in a XXXs?

Shocks look very HPI'sh

I like what losi has done with the shocks. I just hope the springs are the same diameter so we don't have to buy all new ones for this kit.

Other than that I think I'll hold my opinions until I see one in person. Almost all cars have some flaw that only comes out once it gets in the hands of everyday racers. I'll hold off on picking one up until I see what those flaws are.

And oh yeah...I stand corrected. I really did expect to see a molded chassis once it hit production. It's nice to see losi going with a full "factory" race kit right from the start.


Losi suddenly has a LOT of really good competition in 4wd off-road. *cough* bj4 *ahem*
I'll be interested to see if anything new comes for their 4wd off-road effort......since the XXX-4 is such a pooch.

Admittedly I am a total noob in the on-road category, but how in the world do you get the battery in and out of that car without dismantling the entire rear end?

And going along with the other poster, it looks like an incredible task to keep wiring from rubbing the belts in that picture.

edit: Ah a door in the bottom!

Also, Looking at the pic more closely it also looks difficult to get the positive and negative battery poles out to a place where you could wire them up.

There is a removable plate in the bottom deck of the chassis, so you unscew it I assume, and the tray, with the cells, drops out the bottom of the car?

$349.99 is the M.A.P. price for the car. It does look pretty good but I can see the aftermarket parts companies having a field day with this car, they are going to love it.

Not really. The car is a G+ right out of the box. They can't give it away.
