Looks like the thing is electirc. I'm not getting it.. Losi looks to get my business for next racing season. Unless... HPI surprises us with a TRUE GAS BAJA 4x4!!! Electric Baja is nice but most of us bought it because it was GAS!!!

any word on when they will make the official announcement about it?
Losi is getting a whirlwind of discussion and anticipation and HPI (the godfather of 1/5) is sitting silent

The Losi is listed in the upcoming products on A Main. But the HPI is nowhere to be found

I think if I was debuting a truck that handled that poorly I would try to hide it as well

Im not sure what I think about electric 1/5 scale 4x4.....it may be faster then gas but not sure I would want also.....not to mention they are prolly running 8s batteries which would cost on the cheap side $130 for 2 decent 4s which my guess would give you 15 minute run time.
