Unboxing the Losi LST XXL2 1/8th Scale Gas Powered Monster Truck


YES! I finally have one at the Studio and I have to say – I have always imagined Radio Control Monster Trucks being Gas powered, and when I was younger – I was shocked to find out that all RC’s that had engines were running on Nitro. Well, the day has finally come that I own a Gasser! SO SUPER DUPER COOL! I don’t know too much about this truck as I haven’t run it yet – so I can’t really give any operating opinion yet – but I can say that this thing is impressive to look at! In this video I unbox this monster truck and let you peek at whats under the hood!

I know a lot of folks ask me to give information in the video description, so here it is:

The Losi® LST XXL™ 2 takes the proven LST platform and adds an innovative .31 cubic inch GASOLINE engine, the AVC™ (Active Vehicle Control™) driving system and a whole lot more. Losi’s LST XXL 2 occupies a class of its own with waterproof electronics, ultra-durable suspension and oversized shocks all of which is built on the trusted XXL extended chassis. The driving capabilities of the LST XXL 2 are complimented by the AVC technology system. AVC automatically adjusts the driving characteristics of the LST XXL2 to match its ferocious power so you can drive faster with more control. Not only will you rarely find yourself far from a full tank of gas, but the included roto-start system ensures the LST XXL is only seconds away from starting up. With advanced durability and legendary Losi 4WD performance, little stands in the way of you and all-out RC excitement when you’re in command of the LST XXL 2.

The included power plant in the LST XXL 2 is a high-performance gasoline engine that has been designed for peak performance. Requires the use of Dynamite High Performance Small Block 2-Cycle Oil. One 282cc bottle treats one gallon of gasoline for a 14:1 premix ratio. Dynamite High Performance Small Block 2-Cycle Oil must be used in a 14:1 premix ratio with Dynamite .31 Gas Engine (5.1cc).
