I have heard, in the words of a Losi insider, "No plans for a new chassis at this time. We are developing and testing new components for the current chassis."

This is from a TLR Driver, But I will say that no one knows until the info is "officially" released from TLR. It will be hard for me to see a complete new chassis with all the R&D that went into the gen3 tray, inclined spindles, center diff split,

Now I know they are in secret testing at the moment with upgrades to the current setup.

We are in a Worlds year and I would have thought IF they had a new chassis, they would have it already. You just dont get a new chassis a month before the Worlds and just go.. There is alot of testing that needs to go on before the chassis is dialed for Worlds. I still think the minds of TLR is still on the 22 and 22T.

just a brief question how much is it to get racing on a roller so engine, (buggy roller), radio ect. because I'm not sure what i need and a good box would be cool
I've had a look around but don't know if I'm looking at the right stuff!

this is an expensive hobby as I've found out but jeez its lethal craic. I had my first track day and had a serious fright, failsafe not reversed when i set up my car, low battery engine screaming, just stopped on time. Wouldn't have it any other way except if it would go all smoothly

I'd have a heart attack if I even seen a scratch on an RC car that cost me $1500. For that kind of money I'd just make noise like it was moving and put it back in the box.
