    the RCSparks Studio Welcomes EVERETT Back into the Spotlight as we both unbox this new 1/5th Scale Monster Machine!! GAS POWERED and Looking MEAN, the Losi DBXL is nothing short of amazing to look at. I can see why this platform all on its own, as its sleek design and smaller Buggy Style chassis, at first glance - looks well built! The Gas Powered engine is a 23cc starter engine (good start for the money).. but everything about this rig is certainly unique!

    Here is a link to the information on the Horizon Hobby Site:

    Very nice Aaron!
    I've just finished doing most of the break in on mine and installed the Bartolone pipe and clutch bell carrier on it. If you and Everett want to borrow it to do a head to head with a totally stock unit and one with a pipe let me know.

    Hi Medic, good to see you got your Losi DBXL!!! I'm in Calgary and bought one of the first ones PM Hobbycraft brought in about two weeks ago. So far I ran a couple a tanks thought it and its been great to drive!

    Check your fuel filter, mine was on the return line and air filter was over oiled. I've also had to lean it way out past factory carbs settings to get it to run decently here at altitude. Also check your gas tank, as the screws holding it down tend to come lose.

    I ordered the Bartolone tuned pipe, Carrier, and 28.5cc bore up kit from Dave's discount motors a couple of weeks and they are here and ready to go on! The mod bug hit me pretty fast with this buggy. I'll probably run the pipe for a couple of tanks first to see what difference that makes before doing the head swap.

    It would be cool to run a tuned pipe DBXL against a stock one to see how much difference it really does make. Let me know if your interested in running them before you mod?

    Cheers
