New LOSI Crawler

i don't know how many of you have seen the new comp. crawler LOSI is releasing after the first of the year check it out you haven't:

"Team Losi Racing’s Comp Crawler is the first rock crawling platform in the industry to offer a revolutionary front and rear “dig” transmission. The use of an optional third channel setup allows the front or rear drive axle to be disengaged, locking the wheels in place and acting as a steering brake for precise lateral movement on and over obstacles. The transmission case has been fitted with adjustable servo mounts that will allow for the use of most “mini” servos and includes an aluminum servo arm. The third channel on a 3-channel radio (such as the Spektrum DX3R) allows the full use of the DIG transmission, and also requires a micro servo installation for actuation. If you do not have a 3-channel radio system or extra servo there is no need to worry - the Comp Crawler will function with full time 4wd with our without a dig servo hooked up."

Key Features
*Compact Front & Rear Locking (DIG) Center Transmission allows the crawler to overtake obstacles with ease
*Front and Rear Solid Axle with Worm Gear Drive
*4-Link Suspension offers 70 degrees of articulation and minimizes front and rear axle swing, allowing for more precise handling
*Zero Ackerman Steering provides class leading performance with 45 degrees of steering throw
*Front and Rear locked differential provides full time 4wd
*3-Piece 2.2" Bead Lock Wheels with aluminum outer rings
*National Champion 2.2 Losi Rock Claws Tires with foam inserts
*Twin Vertical Plate Chassis with adjustable upper shock mounts
*4" Aluminum Threaded Shocks with Titanium Nitride (TiNi) Shafts allow the suspension to articulate without any binds.
*Durable, telescoping CV drive shafts allow for increased steering range
*Aluminum Upper and Lower Suspension Links for added strength
*Lexan Grappler Pro body is optimized to USRCCA Rules and allows for clearance of the tires as they articulate
*Race Roller Chassis is preassembled; simply add electronics, paint the body and go

i'm debating on getting this .... it would be my first RC Crawler ... what kind of electronics would i need to get to complete this? just batteries? or are we talking batteries, motor, servo's and controller?

nevermind ... found info on the "features" page ...

i'm not sold on worm gears yet. My Axial is a rock racer at this point and the drag on worm gears would probably suck for that.

I have to agree with that... I would not want these axles for a racer or a scaler... but with that said I have not tried them yet and may change my mind once I have a set

Red face Losi MCR

Got my mini great crawler I am a nubie. Chased a big black dog, not a good idea big dog bit rite though crawler. On another note front u-joint fell apart after twenty minutes, Losi said they will send new parts. Be carefull parts are extreamly small and can disapear in an instant. It will stop the fun instantly

Since I grew up with Losi stuff I will be getting one

I had the Jrx T and Jrx 2 I raced pretty much every week as a kid.
Every damn dollar I earned mowing, shoveling, and anything else we could do for cash went to our cars.

I still am a Losi Nut even thought they sold out I still believe they make a good product and are always innovative.

I still have a few cars

XXX-T
LST-2 With a ton of shit on it, Nitro cost to damn much money
Micro-T With lithium, it's ungodly fast.
Mini Crawler its just a blast.

I will be buying a 1/10 as soon as they come out.

I have already put shocks, links, flipped the tranny and ordered a lipo split pack for the Mini Crawler.

Its a sick addiction.

Mac

I love my AX10 but wish they would hurry up and release the Losi. It looks sweet!

I drive for Losi's rock crawling team, I've had the privilege to take the 2.2 Losi out for a weekend outing. It crawls very well... The front and rear dig works flawlessly, the steering is killer, and axles are pretty cool. The worm gear setup allows for a ton of diff clearance and control in technical stuff.

Simply put... It flat works

Currently, Losi is ironing out a few minor problems that we found in testing it, and working on the final gear ratios. Everyone at Losi wants to be 100% sure that this rig will dominate the competition. I will keep you guys posted on a release date once I know more.
