I may be interested in this. Does it come with any tyres, spares etc?

Even though i have the RC8, im starting to think 10th scale is the way to go in this area, as there seem to be very few 1/8 tracks around. I was thinking of getting a cheap mad rat or somethng but by the time i get a brushless combo etc this seems like a good price.

Can you email me any pics? zuke79@hotmail.com

Thanks

it has tyres etc, not sure on spairs, he only used it twice, then got a cougar, as he liked all the carbon fiber:drool: but sold that to me....silly me:blush: so he has now got a losi 22 to build. I will sort photos

Mad rats are great for the money, but B4's are in a diffrent league

okay sounds good, see if you can send me some or even txt them to me (07952127018).

I realise B4's and the like are miles ahead of Madrats etc, but I am still a big believer of a good driver with a madrat will beat a crap driver with a B4. so until someone can run consistant laps (pointing at myself here) they wont be able to tell the difference really between them. saying all of that though, if you can get a b4 for the price of a madrat, why not!! ;)

Is there a hardcase lipo only rule at the NBC?

I love the Losi gear, as my first car was a LXT back in the day, which i still have back in oz. It seems to me that associated stuff is more popular here in the uk though, thus cheaper.

Maybe that's true for the last few years in 10th scale, as Losi haven't really had an up to date car for a while, the XXX Cr isn't really on the pace of a B4, and the XX4 is getting very old now.

Things should change now the 22 is here (which makes everything else look too dear), and hopefully a new 4wd on the way:thumbsup:

spoke to a man very mutch in the know a few weeks ago at maritime, he said a 4wd is not even on the drawning bord:cry:

I have text some photos, hope you get them,
The mad rat is good and is also near as damit a copy of the b4, but the b4 is a fair bit stronger, and the shocks are better etc

As far as lipos go, I would rather see hard case, but you are more than welcome to use soft if it's all you have

Thing is Dave, no one knew about the 22 until they shew a finished car, no prototype and said it was coming in just a few months, so who really knows what's going to happen.

I just don't see them making the 22 metric as the rest of the world likes that, making it be able to be mid motored, as some other parts of the world like that, if they weren't thinking of a 4wd as well.

I'm more then happy with my Durango, but if a new Losi 4wd comes along, then.........:drool:

no photos as of yet, although i do get almost no reception at my place so might get them tomorrow.

I wont be able to come up tomorrow as im flying to France unexpected and last minute.

As for the lipos, i havent any yet, thats why i asked. I just know hardcase are more expensive so will look around a bit should i invest in the B4 or similar.

Thanks

What I meant Dave, is that no one really knew anything about the 22 till it was finished, normally people see something quite a long time before a kit comes out, with the 22, they kept that under wraps like nothing else I can remember.

Not sure if you got my message DAve, as nothing shows up in my Sent Messages bit.


In regards to the B4, are you far from the track? I was wondering if you aren't maybe we could meet there on the weekend so I can meet you and check
out the car?

If you can't make I or it's a long journey then some photos txted or emailed should be good. I didn't get your other txt so maybe try again

Hi Guys

Sorry for the late reply, been very busy with moving etc.

I'm looking for 150 for the car inc the lipo.

As Dave said it's had very little use, it has the Fushion 10.5 brushless system, spare set of yellow wheels with new tyres. I have a box of springs/spares.

Also have a Futaba 3GR 2.4 with receiver for 160. Used about 3 times.
