Default New Micro High Roller

http://losi.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=LOSB0237

This would proably explain why the Raminator was discontinued. Looks very nice

I like that the chassis was modified more for a monster truck look. They just slapped monster tires on the raminator and called it a day. One troubling thing about the micro roller is the gaping hole in the top of the motor can. It screams "add dirt here".

LOL, If they were a race only company they woulnt be in business now. Remember that streak of RTR's in early-mid 2008? That was to fund money for R&D on the new 2.0 models. I think every RTR is a blessing in disguise as it funds money for R&D to keep the company afloat. What big companies dont have RTR's?
Associated does
Tamiya does
Xray does
Jammin does
Traxxas does
HPI/Hot Bodies does

So, c'mon new 2wd or 4wd electric buggy!

RTRs can be good. It's when that's all or almost all that a company makes that it becomes a problem.

I am all about the Micro High Roller. These micros are a blast to drive. As soon as one hits the shelf, I am all over it.

It's really wierd that someone would write an article like that before it's even released.

Do micro-t's jump very well? I am considering getting a couple of these high roller versions for some living room racing.

I'm still hoping that Losi will innovate a micro 4wd. If the micro's are so popular where's the real innovation after the Micro t + desert? Don't get me wrong though, I love my micro dt[8D]
