That's pretty cool! 1/18th is the smallest that I think would be really fun (besides the Micro Rock Crawler maybe), but these seem to be really nice, they're finally putting standard larger-scale features on a micro! I could definitely see these becoming a class at race events, although it would probably be on turf or carpet. The Mini-Z is 1/24th scale too, right?

Waaaayyyyy COOOL!

Mini-Z is actually 1/27.5 avg for the scale. While these are not meant to compete with them (hence the more straight forward scale) I can definitely see them running on the same tracks, by the same people. I have 2 on order already and can't wait to get them in so we can start developing parts for them as well.

Sheeeeit! Well I guess my Mini-t is going up for sale. I'm get that rally car version. It is sick! I'll wait a bit until the BND version comes out though.

Nice work Losi.

Been trying to make a Losi 1/32 rally for a while now, and all my efforts kinda sucked. Glad to see this finally come out in a more manageable scale! Can't wait to get my hands on one and super stoked that I didn't sell my KO AM module yet...

There are one or two 1/24th already but none by far with the quality shown. Its nice to see something new from losi. However I hope this reflects into a 4wd 1/18th at some point.

Looks like I found my driveway rally car. I was gonna do a brushless 1/10th but itd just run out of room too quick. Losi says the 1/32nd brushless setup will go in but I could see that being a gigantic heat problem.

You guys will be impressed with these. I can't wait to see them hit the hobby store shelves.

Be sure to check out the LiPo for this vehicle too, LOSB9635 for the charger/battery combo and LOSB9825 for the battery only. It is a 2S 7.4v 250mAh battery that adds serious power to this Micro.

actually looks like it could be an awesome little mini. I REEEEALLY like the rally car, and that everything is interchangeable for both car and truck. the only thing that scares me a bit right off the bat, is the plastic pinion gear, i know how the mini-T liked to shoot them off the motor.

Thoughts on a 1/24 Short Course vs a Micro High Roller? I was about to purchase the Micro HR until I saw these were available. Now I'm stumped.

I've had a micro-t and it was fun for a few runs. It got boring pretty quick to bash it outside. I went up to a Mini-t and it is awesome. I think the 1/24th scale should be OK for both indoor and outdoor bashing. They will handle a lot better than the High roller and won't be as much of a pain to work on.
