Looking for a large RC car that you can customize to your liking? Clean out a corner of the display shelves for the Losi 5IVE-T Roller, a 1/5-scale off-road racer that brings you as close to realistic racing as possible.
Embracing the popular short course racer frame, the vehicle comes with a full roll cage modeled from full-scale trucks that ensures your ride will survive the most rugged of crashes and collissions. It comes with a clear body panel made up of four individual pieces (each panel is separately replaceable) that you can paint and decorate at will, giving you free hand in customizing your brand new super-sized ride.
The Losi 5IVE-T Roller brings all of the 5IVE-T's popular components in a large 1/5-scale frame, minus the electronics and the engine, which you'll have to throw in to get it ready for the tracks. Features include a four-wheel drive power train with all metal gears, a 5mm aluminum chassis, three-tunable sealed viscous differentials, large-bore shocks with 7mm shafts, beadlock off-road wheels, an 800 cc fuel tank, two-stage air and fuel filter systems, and a sealed clutch mount.
Personaly, I can't help but feel this thing is begging for an electric counterpart and I definitely want one. The Losi 5IVE-T Roller is available now, pre-assembled and raring for action, priced at $1,099.

Hankering to add a new short course buggy to your roster of RC racers? The Losi 1/10 RTR XXX SCB could prove an interesting pick, with its realistic good looks and the proven of the XXX platform.
Ready to run right out of the box (well, you'll need to throw in a battery, but that's it), the toy car comes painted and decorated in one of three styles: Stronghold, Rockstar and Readylift. The body graphics look awesome, with detailed appearance cues lathered from bumper to bumper, including a fully-designed cockpit with window nets and an elaborate driver figure.
The 1/10 RTR XXX SCB is a 1/10-scale vehicle with a three-piece Lexan desert buggy body. Designed for tough off-road performance, it's got durable composite-molded XXX chassis, nerf bars, beadlock-style wheels with treads similar to the Eclipse Short Course Trucks, realistic bumpers and a bad-ass roll cage.
A Losi LM-32K performance motor provides the muscle, aided by a three-gear transmission with sealable differential, a 2S LiPo-compatible ESC and a Spektrum SR300 receiver. Other details include oil-filled aluminum shocks, a digital steering servo and adjustable slipper clutch.
All three Losi 1/10 RTR XXX Short Course Buggy models -- Stronghold, Rockstar and Readylift -- are available now, priced at $249.99.

Bigger isn't always more fun. If you like your RC trucks smaller with the off-road power of the best 4x4s, you probably can't do wrong with the Losi Micro Trail Trekker.
A 1/24-scale truck, it measures a compact 6.89 x 3.35 x 4.13 inches and weighs a light 8.1 oz. Despite the diminutive size, it can handle difficult terrain with the best of them, armed with 4-link suspension articulation that should handle plenty of challenging obstacles you can throw its way.
Compared to the Micro Crawler, the Losi Micro Trail Trekker sports a longer wheel base and revised suspension geometry, making for greater maneuverability when riding uneven ground. All-terrain features include full-time 4WD with locked differentials, front and rear solid axles, twin vertical plate chassis, all-terrain treaded tires and chrome off-road wheels.
The body comes fully done up in either black or silver, with red design and Losi graphics. Of course, it comes with a micro motor (same one that the Micro Crawler used), a micro steering servo and a space-saving 2-in-1 receiver/ESC combo unit. A 4.8V 220mAh NiMH battery and an accompanying charger are included, along with a Losi 4Ghz DSM radio system.
According to Losi, the true-scale looks and impressive performance makes the 1/24-scale electric Micro Trail Trekker unlike any crawler they've ever made. That sounds mighty intriguing, especially at the affordable $149.99 price.

Losi just announced the 1/10th-scale Bind-N-Drive Night Crawler, a transmitter-less version of a similar RTR from the company. It's pretty much the same vehicle as the original Night Crawler with the exception of the Spektrum DSM 2.4GHz Technology transmitter removed from the package.
What separates a regular rock crawler from a night crawler? I honestly didn't know. Turns out, they're specifically designed for scaling rocks in the dark, when you're not likely to see what's going on in the ground. To facilitate that, the Night Crawler BND sports a red-accented black body, red wheel rings and brilliant LED lights (both front and rear) to easily distinguish it on the course during after hours.
The Night Crawler BND comes with a 540-sized crawler-specific 55T motor and high-torque metal gear steering servo, a combination that should work well for scaling tricky obstacles in rocky terrain. Front and rear solid axle features a worm gear drive (for extra brakes when there's no power), with a smaller differential case for higher ground clearance. Other notable features include red anodized vertical chassis plates, 4-inch adjustable aluminum shocks, three-piece 2.2 beadlock chrome wheels, Losi Rock Claw tires, molded 4-link suspension setup and competition-legal Grappler Pro body.
Many crawlers in the market require a few modifications before being truly ready for the rocks. Losi claims that's as far from the case here. Armed with an electronics package with a LiPo-compatible, crawler-programmed ESC, all you need to do is bind it to a DSM-equipped transmitter and it's ready to run out of the box.
Pretty hot, right? The Losi 1/10 Bind-N-Drive Night Crawler is now available for $299.
Length:17.5 in (444.5mm)
Width:9.875 in (250.8mm)
Wheelbase:12.3 in (312.4mm)

Never failing to innovate, kudos should go the way of Team Losi for their 1/10th-scale 2WD electric truck, the XXX-T CR. This bigger, better and badder truck model can certainly stand toe-to-toe with any racing vehicle out in the wild.
Is bigger better? This question has been asked plenty of times, especially when it comes to RC racing trucks. In the case of the XXX-T CR, we will have to agree. With Losi extending the length to 1/5th of an inch, it certainly looks more imposing without sacrificing any of its brute power.
Fitted with a polycarbonate clear body, along with the extended EA3 composite chassis, you know it can stand a beating at just the first sight. Despite the size, it's highly flexible too, sporting multi-adjustable rear hubs (making for a highly-configurable suspension) and quick-release rear axles, allowing for relatively comfortable handling over huge and long tracks.
As a kit, overall performance will vary, depending on the parts you decide to install. Losi suggests (unsurprisingly) a 6.5 motor with heavy horsepower to maximize the vehicle's potential for power, speed and acceleration. Handling is admirable, especially for the size, steering through difficult turns while managing to maintain good speed. With the race-proven XXX transmission, slowing down and moving to quick acceleration poses little trouble, as it handles the maneuver adeptly.
The Losi XXX-T CR, in capable hands, should sit right up in the top echelon of big trucks when it comes to sheer toughness and quality of performance. It's the kind of model you can take anywhere, pitting against all competition to satisfying results.

During the time of its release, the Losi XXX-CR 2WD was among the cream of the crop in the field of competition-ready buggy racers. A couple of years after that, it remains relevant in the scene - a credit to the innovations it brought forward in delivering a high-level of racing experience.
Available as a kit, the model comes with a lightweight, lowered body shell, which makes for improved drag and a lower center of gravity. It also includes a multi-element rear wing system, which incorporates two wings (a wide wing and a smaller one on top of it) in one, providing high-speed stability. Want even more aerodynamic handling changes? Install the bundled front wing and feel the difference in steering response.
The XXX-CR comes with a composite, non-graphite (EA3) chassis, a durable foundation that holds the vehicle together. It uses Losi's VLA suspension technology, featuring optimized travel and plenty of tuning possibilities. You'll see it in action first-hand as you watch the buggy work through jumps and carve through turns with unflinching stability.
One of Losi's biggest selling points for this car is its predictability. True enough, this has been proven by hobbyists again and again - this is a dependable racer that will respond the way you tuned it to. Other features include a low-maintenance differential assembly, a three-gear transmission, a new bellcrank system and Red compound tires (Big Shot at the rear and extra-wide in front).
A guaranteed performer, there are few buggies that have really seen and done it all as much as the Losi XXX-CR 2WD. If you like tried and tested, this is absolutely the way to go.

Need a truggy that can run over all surfaces without compromising speed or performance? That's exactly what the Losi 8ight-T 2.0 brings to the table - an off-roader that's been tuned to perform like a high-speed truggy should.
Sure, the factory-assembled shell and pre-loaded decals aren't exciting, but they ain't half-bad either. While the looks aren't exactly to die for, this 1/8th scale basher packs it where it counts: dependable performance.
See that body? The design was built to allow free-flowing air into the system, helping cool down your ride during non-stop runs under extreme weather. You also get easy access to the truck's interior for adjustment and tuning.
Power is provided by the 454 .28 engine, which delivers enough punch to see you through the toughest challenges. It's easy to tune and stands up well over many runs - there's a good chance you'll want to keep this engine intact for a long time. While many manufacturers like to pull out a buggy drivetrain, slip it into a bigger vehicle and call it a truggy, Losi did their job here, tuning the driveline specifically for the larger wheels.
The 8IGHT-T handles very well off-road due to a properly-built suspension and steering servos. Performing jumps at 40mph will leave you barely breaking a sweat, as this is a very forgiving setup - you don't need perfect technique to pull off big air.
From the first time you pull the trigger to the end of raceday, the Losi 8IGHT-T 2.0 is bound to make a believer out of you. Perfect for backyard bashers and mid-level casual racers, this is not just a powerful truggy, it's an easy-to-learn 4WD that will let you dive into the thick of the action in no time.

Small car, big obstacles. If the idea of crawling through harsh terrain with a diminutive model strikes your fancy, then Losi's 1/24-scale Micro Rock Crawler should be your off-road performer of choice. The smallest model ride of its kind, it's a veritable mini-monster that delivers big-time fun.
How small is this RC truck? Put it this way - Losi's roster of rock crawlers (including the 1/10th and 1/18th scale Comp and Mini-Rock) can easily run it over. Measuring less than six inches in length, the obstacle-clearing Micro leaves no hills unscaled in physical appeal. Despite the shrunk-down frame, it aptly captures the hard-to-conquer features of its larger-scale counterparts. With a fully-decorated and pre-painted tuber-style body, along with heavily-treaded tires, it's an authentic-looking off-roader that bravely conquers unpassable ground.
Losi's Micro Rock Crawler comes with a full set of similarly tiny fittings that should enable it to clear otherwise impossible terrains. Armed with a four-link suspension, worm gear drive, beadlock-style wheels and National Champion 2.2 Rock Claw tires, expect excellent balance, smooth control and unrelenting grip. While the micro-motor won't send your heart aflutter with insane speeds, it should handily deliver where it counts - providing brisk bursts of power to push through all manners of difficult surfaces.
The ready-to-run Micro Rock Crawler should prove, once and for all, that even off-road performers can come in small packages. Whether you're staying indoors or hitting the trail, this should make for plenty of obstacle-clearing entertainment.
