Here is what I feel you need to know=
-Complicated nitro vehicle being 4 wheel drive and having the remote starting system, Not really intended for beginners, However if you have some basic mechanical knowledge and internet access, you will be just fine, I had never touched a nitro vehicle before this.
-The "tools" that come with this kit are almost useless, do yourself a favor if you dont have any, get yourself a quality set of tools. I bought a Losi 17 in 1 tool kit, a tuning screwdriver and a longer glow plug wrench and have had everything I could possibly need to work on it.
-Horizon Hobby product support is excelent A++ If you have an issue with your vehicle they will get you taken care of,even if you break something and it is not warranty related, they are very helpful at finding you the correct replacement parts. like any R/C, things wear out or break at times. This is my 2nd Losi vehicle and I will purchase more without hesitation.
I hit a curb and broke the shock cap. It doesn't handle accidental abuse very well. I was kind of surprised that happened.
I rated this a 5 star for educational value due to the fact that by the time I ever get it to run properly I will be an expert in all things RC Nitro!
Ready To Run? Hardly, better hope you have a good set of tools
If you decide to buy this truck hope you have good luck.
As soon as I unboxed the car, I noticed several screws that were not tight. I re-tightened them, and set the gear mesh. I did not expect this from a RTR car, however, this was not a big issue. The look of the car was great, and I wanted to run it.
The break in was unsuccessful, as the ROSS starting system striped the gears as soon as I tried to start the engine. I got new gears, and had the engine break in done with a glow igniter and a bump box.
Once the bake in had been done, I went out to the track. The fuel tank is to small for this engine, and will only last about 3 or 4 laps, while most other cars could go for 5 or 6. After some internet review, I was able to put a new gas tank in (from the Losi 8ight).
On the second use, the carburetor linkage to the servo fell off, and the car took off at full speed, crashing without control and damaging the body. The linkage was changed at the LHS. Apparently the stock linkage is not tight enough.
On the third use, the ROSS gears striped again. I have been advised to ditch the whole ROSS system and install a pull start instead. Again, I was not expecting to have to change original parts on the first uses, but obviously this is a problem that everyone is having, which shows that Losi came out with a defective product.
So far, the car has proven to be highly unreliable, however, when it runs, it is a blast to use.
It also handles very well. This thing takes corners like a champ considering how little tread the stock tires have. And it is QUICK. The 3.4 motor has ridiculous power. Like I stated before, the truck alone is amazing, but now I'll explain why it is a pain in the butt.
The spur gear is absolutely horrible. I have already gone through about 3 of them. I would drive the truck quite gingerly through the grass and out of no where it just dies. After closer inspection, I noticed the spur gear was completely shredded. It looked almost as if somebody took a blowtorch to it and melted off all the teeth. And this so far has happened twice. The spur gears just won't stop disintegrating. The second problem I had is the clutch spring. This truck uses a centrifugal clutch and the two shoes are held together by a thin spring. Every once in a while the spring would snap and jam the clutch. I had to take it apart to make a new link to hold the spring together.
The third and final issue I have is the most reoccurring and annoying. They need to fix the ROSS starting unit. Well, the unit itself works fine, but the problem is the one-way bearing that rotates the starting shaft on the motor.Read more ›
