New from Losi:
Desert Buggy XL-E™ 1/5th 4wd Electric RTR Black - #LOS05012T1
Desert Buggy XL-E™ 1/5th 4wd Electric RTR Grey - #LOS05012T2
When you want large scale electric power, choose the Losi® 1/5 DBXL-E. This fearless basher offers speeds of 50+ mph* (*50+ mph speeds can be achieved with optional gearing) on 8S power. The DBXL-E is faster, cleaner and easier to use than its petrol counterpart, the DBXL. And with the inclusion of an AVC™ system, you’ll have control at all times, whether you’re tearing up the terrain or flying across the pavement, wet or dry. Plus, its new centered drivetrain adds efficiency and durability, while the 800Kv motor will rocket you wherever you want to go. The DBXL-E is the definition of next-level awesomeness.
Dynamite® 800Kv Brushless Power System
The DBXL-E comes equipped with a Dynamite Fuze™ 800Kv brushless motor and a 1/5 8S Fuze Brushless ESC. Together, they will allow you to slingshot across the terrain at speeds of 50+ mph* on 8S power.
Flip Top Cage
The new flip top cage makes accessing batteries incredibly easy—all while maintaining the protection of a full roll cage.
LED Light Bar
Run through the night with an LED light bar that adds realistic off-road looks and function. You now have the flexibility to drive day or night, whenever you want.
Revised Shock Package
The new O-ring and shock guides provide this basher with an improved feel, enhanced performance and upgraded tunability.
The receiver, servo and ESC are all waterproof so you can run anytime, rain or shine.
Aluminium Centre Differential
If the vehicle wasn’t tough enough already, the Losi development team has upgraded the centre differential to aluminium for added strength and durability—all to handle the large electric motor’s enormous power.
Chassis Brace Plate
A new brace plate adds rigidity and stability to the chassis, giving the vehicle increased strength and durability so you can take on obstacles, jumps and pretty much anything in your path.
MAXXIS Creepy Crawler Tyre
Genuine MAXXIS creepy crawler tread pattern tyres provide added traction and offer extra control so you can stop, turn and swerve like a pro.
