Monster Truck Insanity – Losi LMT is Getting the TLR Remedy

Hey guys and Joyful Thursday!

Only a gradual information day within the r/c monster truck world, eh? In case you missed it, Losi announced a limited edition TLR Tuned LMT.

The principle specs that differentiate from the RTR model, save for the apparent that this can be a builder’s equipment that wants electronics and tires to be completed-

– Carbon Fiber Chassis Plates
– TLR shocks
– TLR impressed Servo Saver
– Low CG Battery Tray
– Wheelie bump with flag mount
– Longer wheelbase
– Common physique mounts
– Aluminum Upgrades to incorporate entrance spindle and carriers; rear toe blocks and 4-link bars

Earlier than discussing the precise truck, this being a launch is cool in and of itself. It’s not precisely on a regular basis you see one thing aimed on the strong axle monster truck racing crowd on this scale, from one of many greatest gamers within the r/c world. One other instance of how mainstream these sorts of automobiles have gotten.

The precise launch right here is fairly slick. I feel should you tally it up, there’s proper round $800 {dollars} in hop-up components right here, so even on the worth of $600 you getting numerous stuff you’d in any other case want so as to add ala cart.

I notably admire that the axles now have bigger bearings to higher accommodate the ability and RPM that’s being thrown at them, as I upgraded my unique LMT to a setup using these. Now you may get them, together with axles sporting machined components at important spots, proper from the field.

The shocks at the moment are mounted on to the underside hyperlinks which give a extra tunable setup that has lengthy been the popular efficiency oriented setup for these sorts of vans.

The low CG battery tray is a really good possibility half too. My private racing LMT was modified with one in all these a couple of 12 months in the past and it made an enormous distinction in serving to to make the truck much less high heavy within the air.

The texture and vibe of this equipment could be very a lot that of one thing you’d get from a smaller batch aftermarket builder, which has lengthy been route the strong axle monster truck racer needed to go to get one thing like this. Now, that builder is Losi direct.

I hit the pre-order button fairly shortly after the truck was introduced. I had been on the lookout for a second truck to race in my native membership’s Professional Modified division, and whereas I had deliberate on doing an Axial primarily based shaft truck….this modified my plans instantly. My unique Rotten Apple LMT goes to have a brother very quickly.

The trickiest factor about this launch can be discovering a physique to make use of for it. The wheelbase is stretched to fifteen″, and that’s an extended truck. I’m planning to make use of a JConcepts Chevy Snoop physique for it, however we are going to see the way it seems to be after I get mine constructed up.

And constructing mine up, I’ll do. Search for my construct particulars and impressions of the TLR Tuned LMT simply as quickly as my pre-order arrives, which in accordance with Losi ought to be mid-April. After that, it’s going to be an extended Summer season battling mod Clods, SMT10’s and different LMT’s! I can’t wait!

Till subsequent time, hold it on all 4’s.
