Just looks like Carisma and Losi got together on this one. Question is, does it actually have any kickup on the front, unlike the current gt14b?
Even looks like carisma gearboxes from here as well...

Look at the losi picture gallery. Diff casings are not carisma ones. Could be the same internals though. The gt14 on road cars come with gear diffs so could be those.

Perhaps just not the Carisma you're used to seeing

Ok so the mk 2 looks like that then!

So likely that the carisma and losi roll bar set will be very similar then?

I think you're looking at the wrong dimensions in the rules, the er "larger of the micro scales" is a max width of 209mm
so it's spot on

Sportwerks RC was an Horizon Hobby brand which was rebadged Carisma cars.
So its no surprise to see the Carisma factory turning out a Losi Micro using their already proven running gear.

I much prefer the look of the Losi version to the Gt14B



Still not going back to Micro Racing though.

Looks a fun bit of kit, looking at the manual seems to be a small kickup on the chassis at the front end and no seals on the diff, so not sure if it would leak if oil filled.

Any idea what lipos would fit this ?.

Default mini 8ight

The You Tube video says the diffs are not sealed, so you cant use oil but you can pack them with grease.

It looks like the kit is fitted with 6 2/3A nimhs so hardcase lipos will easily fit.

There are also a host of softcase Lipos that will fit, flightpower for example do 2150 40C and 50C lips which are ubber powerful.

Also I think Losi themselves do Lipos of the appropriate size, though I've not tried them personally.

Question mini 8ight towers?

So what's the general opinion on it having ali towers guys? Obviously stronger but bending ali hop ups is the thing that puts some off...I know Losi will be dealing with some high grade ali....chassis and hubss in ali makes sense...shock towers with no flex? Any thoughts?

and this is all IF IT arrives when they say it will

After last night's run, I'm almost confident about the pace and handling of the 8, just imagine what it'll be like with some talent behind the TX!
