Default Something awesome for Team Losi fans

The vintagelosi.com site was just updated in the HISTORY section with new galleries from the personal collection of Gil Losi Jr. It Includes old prototypes of early JRX2 parts. Then there is a mysterious touring car that never came to be. I won't say anymore, see for yourself. Lots of stuff to see in 5 different picture galleries.

My guess on the unknown rear bulkhead/shock tower would be a truck version of the '91 Words buggy that would have used the Junior T body. On that note, I wish the XX's would have came with a replaceable front lower hinge. That would have saved a lot of the XX's from death.

Side note, I remember seeing, maybe even turn marshaling, Pop's XX at SoCal Raceway way back when it first came out.


Thank you for the write up. I will be looking at it more as I get time.

The original Losi XX4 prototype had a machined magnesium chassis. If there was ONE car from the entirety of RC history I would love to have for my collection, it would be one of those. The XX4 just handled rough tracks like they weren't even there, so easy to drive and smooth.
