    Anyone had a chance to check one of these out? They have a Bind-N-Drive version of it out now which would save me some jing. The price is right, it's from my favorite company, I want one. Anyone seen one in action, are they a decent first crawler for the price?

    Please take in to account that I'll never compete with this thing, ever. It will strictly be just a pleasure & enjoyment free time killer for me. :)

    What does it cost vs the rtr Wraith ?

    For a basic crawler/ basher the losi is a good choice i'd say too .
    But not the only one .
    The BnD is a great idea ,that can make the difference just by the price maybe .
    Your gonna have a blast with whatever you buy and I think Losi or Axial ,you are going to be ok as far as parts support anyway .

    I like the look of the new Axial myself .

    I have used Joe's Losi and I have to say I am impressed with it. It works well and with a few upgrades it can be very competitive. For just fooling around with yeah its a great out of the box rc crawler. Though I have to say having the worm gear come stock is a bonus for that any roll back when climbing things.

    Well if this deal falls through I'm working out to get my hands on a Losi Muggy then I'll either be doing a complete servo upgrade on my LST or getting the Night Crawler. Can't decide which to do. :D

    Both are very worthwhile things to do. What servo's do you have in your Losi right now? You can probably get away with one good steering servo rather than 2 lesser ones. Then the servo's you have in your steering, one can be used in your throttle.

    I played with the single steering servo mod but it's just not worth it, if that one servo dies ur f*d. I'm using decent Futaba upgrades in their now for the steering but I am going to move to a pair of Titanium geared ultra torque servo's and ditch the servo savers all together. I'm also going to replace the brake/throttle servo for some faster transit time and more steadfast braking.

    666oz of torque ought to be enough to rip around the tires on the LST, whatcha think? hahahahaha
