I've already dubbed it in another thread, the Slovakian Losi, or SLOSI for short


The Losi falls short in quality, this is where the Xray shines.

Why'd they go with CF towers?

Oh anf I hope everybody and their momma don't go out to buy this like they did for the Losi because I want one of these.

Thats one high number. Unless Xray used some lead/aluminum alloy in the shock towers are something, you might what to check that. I compared Kyosho carbon SP2 shock towers to stock WC ones and they are no where close to 50 grams difference in weight for both.

OH, ok, total weight. Since the previous post was about the CF shock towers, it threw me off. I guess they shaved about the weight of an .21 engine basically

Wow... if this handles and turns like a Losi, but with Xray quality... the bar has been raised!

I may have to have one of these!

It sure does look like Losi-ish with mugen style radio tray. It seems now a days, all new buggies are like someone elses design.
