newest losi truck

http://www.teamlosi.com/Products/Def...rodID=LOSB0230

EDIT: i went out and got it today, little fucker does crazy wheelies, and is very fast for its size, only downside is i broke a steering arm, and a rear camber arm cause i lost control and the little fucker took a 13 stair leap, i got the replacements on order but for now ive made replacements out of things i had laying around, anyways its worth the $$ its built almost exactly like a 1/10th truck, and it is FAST for such a small car, not what i expected at all ( hence the broken parts)deffenently worth the $$, and i have a mini rs4 with upgraded motor and battery.... im guessing this thing is faster than a mini rs4 stock, just dont hit anything, its steering arms and rear camber arms are very small and fragile so if youre gonna hit it, hit it with the whole car not just the wheel honestly it would cause less damage

ok so everyones backordered on the pieces i broke IMAGINE THAT, anyways i figured makind a straight piece of plastic with 2 holes in it cant be so hard so i made them myself out of zipties........yes zipties why??? because theyre about 2x as thick as the stock parts and FLEXIBLE so they wont just snap under stress, i was gonna make them out of metal but i relized the way its built the steering arms are part of the suspension in this case, i see a huge market opening in this RC because you WILL break these arms, if you buy one and look at youll understand...............either way its a badass car for the $$ just dont take it lightly the little fucker is not a x mas gift for your 12 year old cousin, its fast, and it breaks, and you get to fix it

Good for in house I bet too...the mini-t theres lots of sweet used ones on ebay with lipo + brushless....those things fly gotta go that route if you do otherwise youll drops lots of money to get it and afterwards will probably just use it a little.

I kinda wanted this for christmas , but im just too broke to even afford one. Then I know Id be like modifying it and changing it up , getting it spektrum micro and all this and that...

I already have a monster truck that I need to sell. Barely used , was fun but I just dont have the proper place to run it (at a real track). I mainly just race now, but it was fun bashing. The thing could do a wheelie down the street.

im kind of thinking that unless you have a wide open house the micro-t isnt suited for living room racing, unless youre a really good driver
