Introducing the new Losi 1/5 Scale 4WD Desert Buggy RTR LOS05001
Well the word is official now. Losi has been working on a new 1/5 scale for all us large scale fanatics. The Losi 4WD Desert Buggy which is an RTR 1/5 scale model LOS05001. There is no doubt this is in fact the buggy we talked about in these spy shots posted on LSN a while back.
We have seen a big move to open wheel buggy racing in large scale. Racers have simply have removed the truck body panels on the Losi 5IVE-T and made mostly flat panels to allow the wheels to be open and free. This has become a different class and quit popular. You can see pictures of how those look running at the TeamChase race HERE.
There is no question the Losi Desert Buggy XL is an all new machine from ground up. With our first look there seems to be all new parts, nothing seems to cross over from the Losi 5IVE-T. So a good comparison in specs is something LSN will work on shortly. Including a full review of the Losi DBXL Desert Buggy XL soon!
The Losi 1/5 Scale Desert Buggy XL will no doubt be the talk of the town for some time now and you can watch LSN for all the breaking news and media. I am sure our manufactures will be chomping at the bit to get one so aftermarket parts for the Losi Desert Buggy XL is sure to be in our future here.
