Its based on the LST not the LST2 and we all know the reasons the LST2 came out...

as long as they knock the 200$ of the price, who cares?

hmmm losi LST(sorta) vs MGT, warhead, or TNX?

whatd they upgrade on the LST2? arms, diff cases, and axles? easy enough to do whenever. besides, whatever problems the LST had, were pretty simple compared to something like the warhead lol.

but it doeas weight 13lbs still to heavy, they probably found they way to get gid of lst1 parts but it looks good for 400$, but they should make totally new truck at least 2-3 lbs lighter, will c hows this truck when we get some reviews i wstill have mine LST1 with all upgrades ( not many left to change here ) and i still like it

hardly nescessary, the LST2 competes fine at a similair weight. it makes up for it in control.

sure its heavy compared to the smaller 1/10th scale traxxas stuff. that is true. but as 1/8th scale goes, its right in line. most of the weight on the big 1/8th scale trucks is in the engine and wheels. if you dropped a 3.3 and some maxx wheels on it, probably get down close to 10-11lbs. not that far off the revo.

or if you drop a BB in a revo; you'll get up to 10-11lbs. however you want to look at it.

What Is the exact difference in the radios, the aftershock truck VS LST1? I know that may sound stupid but im feeling kinda ripped off!! I bought a LST a year or more back and paid 550.00 for it. Now this truck comes out with many of the same specs not all mind you but some.

LST1 and aftershock quite simlar .26, 2spd, chasis looks quite simalar, difference in shocks alum lst vs plastic on aftershock.

I won't go to a LST2 because i did most upgrades on my LST1.

SH .28
MIP driveline throughout
rpm arms
different wheel hubs
alum diff cases.

I got over 200.00 in upgrades.


maybe this will be a nice starter truck for people.

I pity the guys with warheads. Always breaking, my co-workers boyfriend's warhead is always broke.

its a 2 channel AM remote. instead of a 3channel synthesized FM remote.

I understand the engine is 3port instead of 8 though. not positive if thats true, but thats what I heard.
