RE: Losi Mini Monster Baja. Any Good???????
I've not had very good luck with my MMB. First I have really liked the way it runs, and the radio system. Lipo that came with car lasted one run. Losi sent me another one, no questions ask. It lasted 2 runs. Losi would not go for a 3rd Lipo. A friend of mine thats been flying planes for 20 yrs took them apart. Both had come disconected inside the packs. About the 5th battery pack run, the steering servo on one side failed. I knew these were noted by some as a weak point of the car, but hoped for 4 or 5 months, not one. There are fixes for these, but they will set ya back about another $100 or so. One person had gone through 4 or 5 of the regular Losi servos before going to metal gear ones. I am 61 yrs old, and this is my first car. I have been very careful with it. Also, I found out after I got the car, that it does not have a speed controler that will cut the power off before you ruin the lipo. I had thought this was what I had done, until my friend took them apart. Again, I like the way the car handles and runs, so I am in the process now of replacing the servos. Would I get another one or a MLST2, nope. For the same money or less, I would go on up to a 1/10 ST. Good luck if you go with it, maybe I just got a lemon losi...gn
