I am surprised no one has commented on some of the finer points of the car.

For example, the arm design. It looks to be a lot more durable with the swaybar supports (I assume that's what they are) mounted in-line with the pivots.

It looks like this could be one of the best balanced cars out there as well. The battery loads from the bottom, which is another unique feature (and no battery ejections!) to the car.

It will be interesting to see how easy the car is to work on, specifically how they accomplished mounting the battery from underneath.

Also, how easy will fine tuning the car be with such short arms? A little is going to do a lot here.

I like the fact that Losi is trying something new, "breaking out of the mold" so to speak - and literally with the chassis (for them).

i'm trying to figure out how the battery mounts in from the bottom

i'll be so happy if they can make another car that doesnt require sticky tape to strap in the batteries

i like the droop screws, with any luck they'll work properly

any ideas when we will see some more shots of it?

not just droop screws, but what also looks like uptravel limiters too

also looks like bearings running in the moulded outdrives 'bk bones' styles.

The Team Orion website shows David Spashett ran the car at some event in the UK.

The Pro3 was a great car in a Pro's hands! It was a great car but was just to inefficient because of the long lay shaft and long diffs.


I hope LOSI has cured / corrected the problems associated with long lay shafts and diffs bodies, it sure is a nice design.


PS: the pro3 and this car are very different from each other, I just noticed that it has long diffs, lay shafts, short CVD's which was a cause of the drive train being inefficient on the pro3

Why would a long layshaft make a car have poor effeciency? Surely a 12th scale circuit car must be be really inefficient because it has a long layshaft (ie the shaft between the wheels)!
The size of those diffs and pulleys look make it look like it will be very free running.
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.
