i'm not sure if losi will have a sealed drive train, although that would be great, at least lesser maintenance.

True, true, true... maybe all this hype would kinda push the development of a losi GP TC.

An enclosed drivetrain would probably be what could convince me to get one as well. More complex to maintain? maybe, but with the drivetrain enclosed, there would be fewer teardowns necessary. I'd take it !

Your thinking the same way im thinking. Lay down engine. Awaile ago, there was a nitro powered F-1 that was custom built and the magazine had a 4 page layout of the car's details and what went into building such a car. I think it might be like that one.

While a nitro tourer is a possibilty, we will see the team losi monster truck first. One of the recent magazines had some spy shots of gil driving it over a jump. Thing looks huge........monster trucks are where the money is and thats where losi will go first now that the mini t is out.

And I wouldn't expect anything else less than revolutionary from losi....the xx-4 and xxxs both were.....Gil doesn't like doing trendy stuff.

Later EddieO

A losi nitro wouldn't be trendy, it would be smart for them to get into the game with the rest of the big dogs!

the problem is,in nitro racing,there are more teardowns,esp in between rounds(for maintenence,tuning options,diff changes,etc)....Thats why we're seeing cars like the r40,Sepent 710 and G4..
