Default Losi Returning to Onroad?

Did Losi completely give up on onroad racing?

Well the team drivers have been running the XX-4 of late at offroad events, maybe the Street Weapon will make a return.

No, it was a running joke with Hodgimoto, he would always say "In two weeks" but of course it like two months. I do hope they come out with a new one, they were always against the grain. And I hope it's from TLR and not Losi (usually means rtr).

Yes I'm well aware of the "two weeks" joke. I can't remember if it was over the two hole arms, the steel battery tray, or the type r kit?

Imagine an onroad chassis with alumnium chassis and no more double carbon fiber double decker, that would be radical.

Radical, heavy, and once it tweaked, it would need to be replaced..

I would be fine with Losi releasing a RTR touring car. Then let TLR have a version in kit form. A car people could go purchase at the shop pull out of the box put a battery in and drive I think could help the popularity of on road. Right now the commitment on road takes just to get started is more then a lot of people are willing to take.

Hopefully they will come out with a new tc and that means a 4wd buggy is just around the corner.

The Losi of today is not the Losi of a decade or more ago. If you want proof, find a SCTE and wobble the front end...

that would be totally awesome if losi came out with an on-road car. I just got back into racing and wow do I miss the days of my XXX-S and XXX-4. Hands down the best cars I have ever used. I loved those things.
