Default TLR 12th scale?

TLR Getting back into the on-road game? Would be sweet to have Losi back running On-road!

I saw this too and was trying to figure out what car he was running...seems to me like a TLR. I wonder what it looks like?

Maybe a CRC since it's distributed in the UK by Horizon? (I think?) Losi being his primary sponsor, they possibly paid for the gear? Like when Hara ran the Mugen at the 1/8 onroad worlds in Florida.. the car was covered in HB decals.

I don't see Losi getting back into onroad with a 12th scale.

I would say that if it was a CRC car it would be uncovered and would be listed as such but possibly not.

You do know that the original 12th scale "T" Plate was designed by Losi right?

I just got word that it was his own creation and no one else. Not a TLR car.

Yes, the "L" in 12L was for Losi, just like the "R" in R5 is supposedly for "Robert" (Bob Stefflue).

The only problem is, none of the Losi family are associated with the company anymore.

Looks like an Associated 12R5.1.

1/12th scale, just 1/12th scale.
I love to go like hell for 8 minutes.

I was also very interested when I read the report, would be great to see a Losi in the 12th scale with a legend like David Spashett (still have a motor with his name on it, the most beautiful motor I have ), but its probably a one-off car

Agreed, load it into the photoshop and it looks like their mono shock, just everything anodized black.

It's an associated. It's nothing to do with any official Losi entry, it's just Spashett wanting to run 1/12th again. Last year he started with his 4 year old Cefx chassis and won the first national with it.

No monster truck wheels? No Losi.

Reminds me of what Hara does for every 1/12th Worlds....Gets the latest AE RC12, gets it anodized purple and enters it as the Hara Hammer 12.
