    More competition?

    It looks like another RC company will be announcing another 1/10 CORR type RTR this Thursday.

    Link

    It was inevitable.

    Sorry if this was mentioned already...
    It is not a TOY!

    Yeah, that's not going to be a cheap truck. I don't see it being competition for the Slash sales wise, now as far as out of the box on the track competition it sounds like it could be very good competition.

    But it's definitely not going to fit the budget of most people, I bet for the price to buy that truck you could get a VXL Slash.

    Definitely. Coming out of the box with a 2.4ghz setup and aluminum shocks (wonder if they are a bigger bore or not) it's definitely going to be pricier.

    Heck, normal price for a Slash is like around $200, the cheapest 2.4 setup I have seen was when Tower had it on sale for $70, and most aluminum shock setups are atleast $50. That's a total of $320 right there.

    Obviously that's not going to be an accurate guess as to how they will price it, but it's starting with a Slash as a base..

    well Losi does aluminum shocks on everything, and its a spektrum 2.4 ghz radio, that they put with everything now (granted its a base model radio as its only setup for 1 vehicle) the DT is around 220, which the rustler is what around 150 170? I'm going to guess that the CT will be between 220 and 270

    It not competition for the Slash, but more for the Sc10. It's AE vs Losi(chevy vs. ford). This is in a hardcore racer point of veiw. Now spec racing and bashing, slash will always be on top.

    "performance-driven features like a water-resistent LiPo compatable ESC"

    Does this mean that it could possibly be brushless. If so, they most likely will lose any chance of out of the box competition because it will be over powered compared to out of the box slash and sc10 racing. Also, I agree. It will be quite expensive.

    yup, i am thinking it may be brushless and if it is it will only be a mod class truck

    well, maybe. We'll have to wait and see...It could be race-able if you just pop in a diff motor system.

    so i don't think the new corr truck will be the best i think the sc10 and slash are still better because you can race spec class and mod class

    Would be nice to see a solid brushless/lipo esc compatible with both brushed and brushless motors.

    Most BL ESC can easily run brushed motors with a LVC for lipos.

    I hope it is finaly a BL truck, 4wd, cardan, not belts.
    Pricewise, if they make/order enough esc's, alu.shocks etc. it is cheaper for them to make.

    They even may want to get in to this market and take less profits but get
    n e w rc clients.

    Now for over 3 years i e-mailed many brands this bottomline:

    Please sell a 'cheap' and simple 2 or 4 wd truck, with bl esc+motor and all METAL gears.

    Perhaps they also make a webshop, that also sells parts and sends worldwide , in enveloppe to if possible, for cheap prices, both parts and sending.

    Its not going to be 300+. It probably wouldn't even be 250. It will more than likely be 230 just like the SC10. Thst is right in line with the desert truck. If its more durable than an SC10 I'd trade my slash for a better performing truck.

    The beauty of the slash is it takes beating but can still race and be fun that way.

    i dont really care about the price... as long as its reasonable. I just with somebody would make one of these "corr" trucks with an actual SOLID AXLE in the rear like REAL corr trucks. This IRS stuff is cool but very inaccurate. Maybe this new Losi truck will be a trophy truck instead of corr truck and feature a solid axle!!!! ugh... wishful thinking.

    I'm with you on this, I would be sick if an RC manufacturer designed a "true-to-scale" CORR truck. I honestly do not see it happening though, to much risk and by the time it came out, the whole Short Course fad will be devoured by the next fad.

    Yes, I called it a fad. Every once in a blue moon, a company introduces a new vehicle that everyone goes ape crap over for a given time. The Sand Schorcher, the Blackfoot, the JRX's, the T-Maxx's, the mini's, the Short Course trucks..........whats next?

    Losi Strike!?




    LOSB0105
    MSRP: $349.99
    Available for*: $229.99

    http://www.losi.com/Products/Feature...rodId=LOSB0105

    1/10 Strike Short-Course Truck RTR
    At a Glance

    Even if you have never hit the track before, fun and exciting racing action can now be yours with the ready-to-run 1/10-Scale Strike Short Course Truck. The Strike SCT RTR is perfect for anyone who loves the thrill of RC racing, even newcomers. Its rugged body comes out over the wheels, allowing you to bump, nudge and aggressively race without tangling and flipping other vehicles or getting hung-up on curbs and obstacles.

    The Strike SCT RTR features a water-resistant LiPo and NiMH battery compatible reversing electronic speed control (ESC). Capable of handling up to a 7.4V LiPo and an 8.4V NiMH, the ESC features ultra-low resistant EC3 power connectors and one-button setup for simple operation. The Strike SCT RTR also includes a Losi receiver and transmitter with interference-free Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSMŽ technology.

    The transmission in the Strike SCT RTR houses high-quality all-metal gears, full ball bearings and the adjustability of a slipper clutch with the strength and reliability that will stand up to the power and abuse expected of a short course truck for performance lap after lap. The Strike SCT RTR gets its muscle from a 12T 550-sized modified motor for amazing acceleration and top end speeds for high-flying jumps. The motor houses an internal cooling fan that keeps the operating temperatures low improving performance and motor life.

    Keeping the Strike SCT RTR’s handling as scale as possible is an innovative chassis design. The Strike’s 12-turn 550 performance motor is mounted in line with the chassis and in front of the driveline, so it sits closer to the center of the vehicle. This keeps the center of gravity down, allowing for some scale body roll but much quicker cornering

    The 1/10 Strike SCT RTR also features oversized captured ball ends and adjustable aluminum oil-filled shocks. The threaded adjusters on the shocks make tuning the suspension a breeze because no tools are required to adjust the vehicle for various types of terrain. The Strike SCT RTR achieves increased traction and acceleration thanks to a greater degree of toe-in at the rear of the vehicle. The toe-in is supplied at the rear pivot block, not the hub, making the design generate more traction than what the competition can offer.

    The Strike SCT RTR also sports a strikingly detailed and decorated body, available in red and blue, for pure scale realism that will turn heads at the track. The wheels feature 12mm hexes and finish out in chrome to mimic the style of a full-scale off-road setup with the long-wear off-road tires providing ample traction on multiple surfaces. Scale front and rear bumpers help round out the package.
