You guys should do what i did...get an R/C Airplane. That stuff is fun like all get out!! I will soon be learning proper take off and landings soon. Oh I so can't wait!!

When the Losi truck arrives, I will first pinch myself, then go look at it, start it up, play with it, and then hope I don't wake up from a dream! LOL!

I don't have any planes but I have 3 heli's I suppose I could fly a plane if I wanted to considering its alot harder to fly helis, but the landings I would have to practice.

Horizon is as straight on their words as a squiggly straw. But really, it is not their fault. R/C companies always underproduce to test the market before mass producing. They also like to practice the "Super Hype" game so they can gaurantee that the initial bundle they make will be bought out. The "Super Hype" is made through our trusted magazines.

I swear...some times you guys crack me up!! (squiggly straw)

You know I was just thinking to myyself, if we hadn't perpetuated this thread we wouldn't be all hyper (well maybe at least not as bad) to see the LST. So it is a problem of our own making.

I still dont think so. Shipping the LST after the Revo ships is suicide. I know for a fact, many people with money on the LST right now will use that pre-purchased money for the Revo if it hits the shelves before the LST.

To quote you Thermal;

I don't think it will be suicide to release after the Revo if the truck is as good as we are all hoping.

Besides, the longer I look at the Revo the less I want one. It is a cool truck but doesn't look very scale. I know, I know, I am being picky but the GT the LST and the Genisis just look better to me.

Me too. At first I was all excited about it when the news first broke, but now I'm just like "ehh".

I think it would be better for initial sales if it came out before the Revo, but in the end it has to prove itself. The first batch will be limited, and if it gets bad reviews then it doesn't matter anyway since people just won't buy it. The first batch will get sold out quickly no matter when the release date is. If it's a good truck then people will buy it.

But as far as I'm concerned, the sooner the better.

Therm, Scoob, Mat....

Where is the vid of Drake with the LST at the Gas Champs? The pic of the the LST crushing the CEN MT2 is part of the vid right?
I know for fact that the vid is over 90 megs, and it was at twistedchaos.net but it is no longer avail. By any chance you know of another place to get it? By the way....I too will soon be a owner of a LST, I sold both my T-Maxx and my Savage. So now I am also eagerly awaiting the release of the LST. I have no more Monster Trucks to bash around with...

Can someone give the LST it's own forum here? I don't think any site has a seperate forum for the LST yet. I think it will bring alot of LST owners here.

Heres some depressing information for ya. I just got back from my LHS. I asked them about the LST. Apparently we will not be seeing an LST this month, and according to them, maybe not next month either. Pretty depressing news. I also asked about the Revo. They say its ship date is the 20th of this month, no delays so far. Here are some interesting numbers for you. They have pre sold about 7-9 LST's, and have room to sell a few more from the first shipment (supposedly). The Revo has 20 pre sales, and supposedly they are gettin in 25 on the first shipment. The Genesis?? Well, its release date is about as clear as the LST's at this time.

I sold an unopened MGT because I'm getting the LST. If I don't get it until August, I would have been better off simply keeping the MGT since I'd have the summer to play with it.

Actually, there is a forum that has a seperate forum for the LOSI LST. Might want to check out www.maxxtraxxusa.com! You really have to look for it, but it's there. But it is quite dead. I don't know why.
