Team Losi has announced a new short course truck -- it's the kit they've been teasing the past few weeks. The vehicle is the Team Losi 22SCT, a 1/10-scale short course truck designed from the ground up to be a serious competition racer.
Based on the ROAR National Champion 22 Buggy, the vehicle is being billed as one of the most innovative and durable racers to ever enter the category. While time will prove that to be true or false, there's no denying the specs sheet sounds like they really dropped a load of some serious power its way.
Looking to make a serious dent in the 1/10-scale short course world, the Team Losi 22SCT Kit borrows heavily from the field-tested elements found in TLR's championship-winning 22 platform, leading to one of the most unique short course racers currently in the market. Most notable are the flexible motor placement (either rear- or mid-mounting is accommodated), multiple spur gears and two full sets of tires (8 wheels total), allowing drivers to tune their vehicles for best performance, regardless of track style and surface.
It features all metric hardware for easier maintenance, along with a laundry list of high-end components. Details include a 2.5mm hard-anodized aluminum chassis, full ball bearings (including steering), heavy duty 4mm turnbuckles, dish inserts for the wheels, slide rack steering, an optimized suspension package, gullwing-style front arms, maximum front nose clearance, molded gear cover, steel drive shafts and more.
No word yet on release date or pricing for the Team Losi 22SCT Kit, but the car has reportedly debuted at events for demonstration during the last week. Expect this to be a big seller.
