    This picture shows few things. I have had it a while 2 that it has a new motor and esc. Also I would like to point out that of all the rc's that I have built over the years that this is my crown jewel. No other rc can do as well as what this buggy can do. It is fast when needed it is a blast in the sand it is is great doing hill climbs and my favorite is in the rocks. When I bring this buggy out in the snow I hyrdoplane it on the snow and that really gets people to stop and watch.

    I used great parts on this build Hitec, SMC lipos, Losi team parts and hand fabricated carbon fiber parts. I used L em dog carrier in the Summit transmission and custom 23mm wheels mounted to 40 series tires. everything is waterproof and the servos are HV so that they hold up well with hard use.

    The shocks are also special. CNC bodies with titanium shafts.

    The lst and xxl2 platform has not changed much between the two. I have a total of 3 lst/xxl2 in different product releases aftershock/muggy whatever you call em they r great to work on and tougher than nails!! Unfortunately I am a nitro/gasoline nut so i am usually ripping one apart while throttling out another. Took my old iPhone with the speedo app playing and got a top speed of 53mph! I gotta find a nice 1/4 mile stretch to top out the second gear tho. Nice carbon fiber build i have favorited it and am curious to see if you decide to start producing. Nonetheless I am all about the losi brand and this platform is an all time BEST

    Dog loves chasing it, eh? How many bloody lips from grabbing the spinning tire? My dog used to love the "chase game"...every now and then though, he'd misjudge and get his face all wrapped up in tire...

    I do feel that it is unstoppable. I do wish the diffs were bigger though. I have broken a few. I have even raced this buggy on a track and it is so smooth that it's easy to be fast with it.. with this new power plant I do need to upgrade the clutch to a Robinson Racing setup.

    To give you an idea of just how big this is here is a picture of the Rok Lox in 2.2 and the 40 series that is 8.85'' tall.

    HOLY. CRAP. That's the biggest bloody RC tire I've ever seen... Makes your 1/6 Willy's look teeny...
