Looks very good.

Carisma wheels and tyres and the shocks look identical too

Gear diffs interesting wonder if they can be oil filled?

Will make the micro nationals more mixed.

Will the be an issue with the car being badged 1/14 scale? I would assume that doesn't matter as long as it fits in the box?

Thumbs up Losi 1/14th ;)

How crazy! I had a conversation the other day with my colleague regarding why Losi, with their love and history of making micro/mini platforms don't do a buggy to compete at this scale!! and what do you know? there she is

The 1/14th tag may cause some strange class splits at club level but as others have said...if dimensionally it fits in the Micro x restrictions....its in

I just hope they have gone with the build values of the new 1/10 scale models (22 & 22T) and not just bashed out a quick ready to run 'hobby' job...although I see an ali chassis so we could be good with this little puppy.

Look forward to seeing it in the flesh...well the plastic and ali really

carisima was originally badged up as a 14th scale till chris and the micro section had a word lol and as it fitted in the box was all good looks around the same size as the gt14b same motor layout as a shark should go well

To be honest, the "scale" now in micro racing is inappropriate. As long as a buggy meets the measurments they could call it a 1/5th scale if they like.

The name alone of the GT14B tells you what scale it was when it came out, it was "just by chance " inside the newly laid out rules regards dimensions, so it fits, I am sure the Losi will be very much the same when it comes.....

Surprised none of the micro lads let this one out of the bag before today to be honest.

Esc and motor look like the carismas too. Different colour heatsink on the esc but otherwise same size and layout.

I would just like to add that the Micro National dates are on the thread link below, entries close 10 days before each event, why not get booked in to race your new Losi

Just by chance.... And the year worth of emails/phone calls prior to its debut
The GT14B was specifically to meet the BRCA Micro Section 1/16th rules prior to its release c

Oh no's... now what do I do...??

I have a collection of Micro Losi and I love them!! ( I bash around my living roon all the time with my Micro T) was even considering a Mini T conversion if my Mini Madrat did not work...and now they announce this...!!

But I was really wanting a Carisma...poo...

ummm... If HPI announce a race spec 1:16th Micro I think my head will explode.

Do we have a summer season of Micro? if so I'm getting the Losi!!

Oh and will someone tell Losi, HPI etc just to make one scale of micro...this 1:14th and 1:16th crap is making my brain hurt
