If the solder hasn't come off yet your not beating it eneough!
How fast is the steering and has anyone else had any problems with the car? Does it have bearings on the outdrives or brass bushings?

Yea.. Man I can't wait till the hop ups start pouring in. I'm gonna make this an exact replica of my big LST. I just need carbon fiber chassis, threaded aluminum shocks, bowties, rpm arms, big old motors, and tons more! Its gonna be SWEET though!

OMG! Tinide shock shafts, graphite chassis plates, (HOLY CRAP! Insane motors are $60!)!


Losi doesnt make a vehicle with bushings, everything comes with bearings!

The steering is surprisingly quick. I was checking that out today while I was running it, as fast as I could turn the wheel on the radio, the wheel was turning. And you can turn it down from the radio so it doesnt turn as much also.. Pretty sweet set up really.

it is way cool.... got the losi hop-up motors and it is pretty quick, then I bought a LI-poly battery for it, fit right in and then it started doing wheelies and was way faster than before.

battery fit right no modification whatsoever, losi included a mount for a lipo in the kit.

So get one !!!!!

Lipo's NO PROBLEM!!!!!

WOOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I dont even think the upgrade motors are out yet.. how did you get them? Also lipos are the same size as normal batts, maybe a bit smaller. You dont need any special mount for em.

Losi speed motors INSANE 370 are out, my hobby shop had 4 sets
-- then again he had 13 mini LST's

as far as the battery you may call it a spacer or whatever but it is what Losi provides so you can use lipo's in the truck.

pictures below will show what I am talking about

Oh alright. I forgot about that bracket. I was wondering what it was myself, lol.

My hobby shop hasnt gotten anything yet except the trucks. Man I'm so hoping I dont break a part for another week or two. I'd be screwed!
