Small News From Losi





With everybody concentrating on making a nitro monster truck Losi snuck one by the goalie with this mini stadium truck. The Mini-T is an economically priced 1/18 scale Ready-To-Run replica of the sensational XXX-T Matt Francis National Champion race truck. The simplified construction has many of the features found on its larger brothers. The transmission is equipped with a heavy-duty gear diff and precision ball bearings for the ultimate in power and performance. Theres extended travel long arm suspension with friction shocks, disc type racing wheels and hi-traction rubber tires. The racy stadium truck body comes pre-painted in your choice of three colors with cool graphics and detail stickers already applied. A fully proportional with servo reversing and adjustable-rate steering, a forward/reverse FET electronic speed control, and features changeable crystals on 27MHZ allowing for a bunch of Mini-Ts to race at the same time. Power comes from four AA alkaline cells or for even more sensational performance an optional six cell rechargeable Ni-Cad pack. Of course, all replacement parts are available with option parts to follow. With real suspension and semi-pneumatic tires the Mini-T can be run on rough and irregular surfaces indoors or outdoors. We'll have more on this hot new little truck in the near future, but for around a street price of about $150 this looks like a winner!

YES!!! Now that's the kind of news I like to hear. I am imagining a nice track in my livingroom/dining room. Complete with jumps. A real table top. As long as no one's eating off it anyway. How freaking cool is that thing!!!!!

Well we won't even see under the lid for another 3 weeks... But that Idea did cross my mind for a future lottery. The thing is really cheap so the tickets would be like $3.50 for 40 tickets....
