The losi is still a good car but there tires are not allways great and most of there drivers have to use losi tires as its horizon who own losi, in europe some guys like yannick are still winning but he is using pro circuit, mattias was top 3 at the euros on aka? although now at JQ! just my 2cents worth, as i run there car and tires last season!
totally agree. Losi tires are that bad but when you need the extra, it got none. the WC in Thailand if anyone could remember, there's so many Losi in the semi finals but only Drake make it and barely. if not J.Aigion back off a little, there will be 0 cars in the final.

this been going over and over in RCtech. but Losi tires seems to fade after sometime even it is new. it wouldn't affect so much, when you are in the lower mains but top flight, 15-20 mins that is all it got and you will suffer. Nothing against Horizon. should losi wants to be on podium again in big races, drivers should be allow to choose their tires. my 2 cents.

the car is fantastic to drive, reliable and strong. the tires aren't great !

When they are good, they are really good. But when they are bad they are really bad. I have yet to try a better tire than Eclipse red on the kind of tracks we have over here, but they don't last long. VP-pro axxman comes close and lasts longer.

TLR is fine, People need to worry about keeping their wheels on the ground instead of worrying about what TLR drivers are doing. When your trophy case begins to look like Drakes or Truhe OR you are getting an introduction with 45 sponsors in the AMAIN in prime-time with thousands of people watching around the world, then you can worry about someone else.

most comment here are driving a 8ight. tat's what some found out the problem and where it lies. most like to share around what's going on. of course there's some for and against, try it out yourself. like myself, most would hate to see losi losing.

Again. Why do WE have to be pros to compare a PRO with ANOTHER PRO.? When someone says "this" driver isn't up to pace... we aren't talking about a saturday night club race crew.
