The diff housings look just like my redcat rampage housings.


This thing is a redcat in losi skins. which means mine is faster. (ha ha) just kidding. I know that brushless is faster than gas.
Oops yours is gas. Well it shure looks nice standing still!

It's a losi with a AJA racing conversion kit. However I did able to do a few mods. The Body is an Elcon MMX body since I also run Elcon Models. Brushless is nice but will never last as long as a gasser.

I watched a video of your electric buggy it is fast but it is not the fastest sand buggy I have ever seen. If you were to run up against a well tuned 50cc or inlined twin you would get smoked. If you tried to run that thing in a hour long offroad race against gas powered 1/5 scales you would get smoked because you would need to put in fresh batteries. Thats the weakness of your system its run time does not come close to gas !! Yeah your car is fast but it will run outta juice in your typical offroad race because the batteries do not have the run time. And where is your video of a speed run of this car verfied by Radar???

Electric compared to nitro is one thing, but electric to a gasser? Doesnt compare. The argument about electric has always been reliability and speed and I have to give it that. Its very reliable but speed is what you make it. Electric is charge and go. But a gasser is basically pull 3-5 times and go. Then fill up, pull 1-2 times and go, then fill up again, pull 1-2 times and go. And after your receiver battery dies after 9 hours of continues playing, its time to put it away. Then there's the speed. I've had gassers in the triple digits for more than 4 years now and brushless large scale is just making its way into it. And I have a gasser that will give any large scale electric and a lot of smaller scale electrics a run for their money.

BTW, that LOSI is sick. I've always loved the losi, just havent been in love with the price but after seeing that one, I might have a fathers day for my self in mind.
