Default Early prototype Losi gas truck

I have this early prototype of a Losi gas truck. It was based on the XX-T. So many custom parts on it. My understanding is that it was built for Losi as a gas truck prototype.

That’s cool. How did you acquire it? IIRC the XX-NT suspension used LXT arms.

Got it off eBay. Listing didn't mention anything about prototype, but I spoke to the son of the designer of the truck.

I don't think it is either? I know the name of the guy who built it.

Thanks and with the limited chassis space it held the rx and personal and that's a tc3 fuel tank with Lipo next to it, as well as sway bars front and rear, and thanks to Casey for scrounging up new parts at the local hobby stores, as this truck is not pretty but more than capable of winning

To me that prototype is worthy of being in some kind of a Museum. Imagine the work that went into designing and building that. As great as those close up pictures are I'd love to see one of the whole vehicle. This got me thinking. Is there such a thing as an RC Museum? If not how about we start one?
