I'm not bitter...nope not bitter at all that their customer service SUCKS!!!

None the less...

front drive shaft system (Patent Pending) that was tried for the first time at the World Championships a few weeks ago and, after further refinements, were used with great success at the US Indoor Championships (where the JRX-S was TQ). Due to the spectacular performance of these new parts we are currently trying to get them produced for inclusion in the JRX-S kit while trying to keep any cost increase to a minimum.

see this link for more pics and information

-Inline center mounted battery & forward mounted motor
-Optimized short-arm suspension with integral sway bar mounts and up/down stops
-All chassis components pinned to prevent tweaking
-Diffs can be adjusted up/down and front/rear for CG and belt adjustment

-Lightweight design and construction allows ballast placement options
-Completely adjustable roll centers, toe-in, anti-squat, castor, and camber
-Dual position shock towers for indoor/outdoor racing
-Center spool and one-way options
-Machined pure Carbon Fiber/Graphite chassis and upper braces
-All new single or double o-ring hard anodized racing shocks with Ti-Nitride shafts
-Pivot blocks with ball supported floating pivot pins
-New shock absorbing bumper and 5th body mount
-New Outdrive cups that don’t require saver rings
-Ti-Nitride suspension hinge pins

The popular and very competitive Kyosho FW-05R appears to be getting an update. Information from the recent Tokyo show suggests a new RR kit may be available in the near future.
The rear suspension looks like it will now include the same suspension arms and hubs developed for the V-One-RRR. The new hubs have vertical attaching points for the camber links, which allows fine adjustment of camber gain with shims instead of just a couple mounting positions. New dogbones and axles to fit the new rear hubs are included.
Modified front suspension mounts appear to allow front roll center adjustment. A new upper deck modified to accommodate the new front suspension configuration is part of the package. A front shock tower and new steering hubs appear to be included as well.

Losi not good ay Customer support. holy smokes. I have had nothing but great success dealing with them. I had a xxxnt and wanted specs on the mach 15. I had a reply in minutes. mind you it depends who you write.

I wrote to Todd Hodge himself 3 or 4 times and he was awesome to deal with. always had an answer and bent over backwards to assist me. I had a piston disintegrate during break in. I spoke to him and he showed me where to send it. I got a stupid letter from there repair center on how I didn't break it in right, and when I directed the email back to Todd, he got me an apology (I described in detail about running rich and they said it was too lean, hmm fuel spewing out the pipe?)

that said I still prefer the toughness of ae trucks myself....
