Default Losi LST.....Kit Version?

Anybody know if the LST is going to ever be offered as a kit w/o the controler. I have a Savage SS and the JR XS3 so I really dont want to pick up another XS3. I think that would be money wasted.

Thanks for your thoughts............

I doubt it, and its not really money wasted anyway. Buy the LST for 560, then sell the radio for 200 bucks. Then you just got yourself an LST for 360.

No, they are 75 mhz. If you read the description it says you can switch between 30 channels. There are only 6 on 27. I paid 560 for my LST at my LHS, Larrys Performance RC. Just about 600 after tax.

well that would be a great thing but i don't think it will happen

i have a M8 with many good servos and all the other parts to use it but i will see what the radio is like that comes with it and change it if i don't like it

I realy dont think you can sell that radio for 200 plus I hate to sell things I am not good at it, and by then there will be alot of those radios in the market. So my opinion is that a kit its a necesity or at least a ARR because that radio is what its stopping me the most to buy this truck. Also its harder to come up with 550-600 than I dont know 400- 450.

To me, the radio is a great thing because I would love to get a high end synthesized radio. However, I can see where it would turn off people who already shelled out big bucks to get a good radio already.
