Looks okay.................. Another mini from Losi built off of the Mini-T platform... They should have released one the size of the Mini Slash then I would be more interested in it.

Scale buggies are the next big trend. I would expect scale buggies to be the next big thing since the scale trophy trucks are doing so well. This is the first of many more to follow. I always wondered how 1/8 buggies ended up looking the way they did as opposed to looking like real desert buggies. I guess it was for performance. I suspect that within 1-2 years, all major manufacturers will have scale buggy designs based off of their existing platforms.

It only makes sense. People love the scale stuff and there will be a 1/10 scale scale buggy class running before or after the Slash class across the U.S.

I think Losi could have done better with proportions here, but it's cool. This is the next thing for RC, watch.

You are probably right about it being the "next big thing"................

it looks like the desert truck, but with much better electronics.

I'm interested but need to know more about it. Looks like it would be fun with a sand track and paddles..lol :D Wonder about the battery? Looks like it may be a pain to get in and out and the body looks to come in several peices.. Could be a pain..

The fact that the stock ESC will work with lipos or nimh is a nice improvement and good selling point.

This buggy is longer than the Mini-T, but the same width. Buggies are more narrow than trucks. The truck version of this buggy would be the same length, but wider. A truck that is both longer and wider than a 1/18 Mini-T can't possibly be 1/18. This is a 1/16 rc.[:'(]

Although I guess the measurements are right if they are trying to make it scale, which is all they seem to want to do anymore. Losi disappoints me again.[&o]

At least they didnt promote it a few weeks ahead for a RTR crawler. :eek:

I like the idea of it, I would love to see a class like that explode! That if IF Losi would come out with a 1/10 RTR desert buggy, that would be nice. Losi has been following thru with their lineup in all scales though. i.e. XXX-T, Mini T, Micro T, Mini DT, 1/10 DT, micro DT, micro HR, 1/10 HR, etc.

Yet another sad attempt at releasing a new RC.

Hi guys - I was looking for the mini-t thread I was told about & found this one. I got the mini desert buggy today.
