Default LOSI LST2 still is a good monster?

Hello!
I'm writing from Italy.
I always love Losi LST but I never had one.
I only have a Mini LST2 with exotek chassis, 1/10 servo and brushless motor. I love it!
I found near my home a LST2 with big red motor, RPM arm, big joe tire, metal diff case and spektrum transmitter for 250 euro (more or less 280$).
I can try it with nitro engine and then swap it with a 4S brushless combo and a center diff conversion.

My question is: Losi LST2 is still a durable moster used for bashing? is still a funny car to drive?
or there is now other car (like Revo 2.0 o Maxx) that are much better but costs 2 times more?

LST 2 is a classic. Awesome truck. Can still get parts for it but some can be hard to find. I have one and a few others on this forum, no other truck like it and everyone regrets getting rid of them. Also, I paid about 250$ American dollars for a roller in rough shape, if the truck youíre looking at comes with all that stuff and itís in fairly good condition, Iíd say go for it! That being said, modern electric monster trucks would probably destroy the LST, but if you want a fun truck that might require a little tender loving care once in awhile, then get it! Save the LSTís haha. Take care and hope others chime in, I know nothing about electrics but I know a ton of people have converted their LsT 2 to electric with great success.

Still one of the best trucks around in my opinion, I wouldnít really call all the new monster trucks monster trucks just buggies with truggy arms and truck body . Kinda lame imo but they are fast and durable . But the Erevo 2.0 and Maxx 4s are very stout trucks as well . I still own one lst and will never get rid of it.

Default Custom Lst2 in 2022



I just did a custom build lst2 over the Christmas holidays. I still have my original lst2 for 15 years that I use to race as nitro and has been electric for years. It's a beast. Would never let go. Always being asked to sell. Both the trucks have Muggy setup on them. Custom truck started off as a broke truck in a cardboard box.

This is my rebuild. Break it out three times a summer for vintage races.

It's an excellent monster truck, but there is a big problem with older Losi vehicles: parts are extremely hard to find. When Losi discontinues a vehicle, they discontinue all of the replacement parts too, and very few companies make aftermarket parts for Losi vehicles. So if you buy a discontinued Losi vehicle, you are asking for months of searching for replacement parts if you ever break any of the original parts.
