Take on the World with Losi’s Mini Desert Truck

Take on the World with Losi’s Mini Desert Truck

This might be one of the busier stretches of news (in recent memory) when it comes to small-scale R/C vehicles. We’ve seen ECX refresh their 1/36 KickFlip and BeatBox, as well as roll out a 1/14 radio-controlled motorcycle (Outburst), LaTrax announced a new body option for their 1/18 SST stadium trucks, and now Losi is bringing a new 1/14-scale desert truck to the party.  For those that like to get out into mother nature and aren’t afraid to get their machine a little dirty, this new vehicle might be just what you’ve been looking for.

With a chassis based on the Mini 8IGHT, 4WD brushless power, a Li-Po-ready ESC, oil-filled shocks, a digital steering servo, and a 2-channel 2.4GHz radio system, the Losi Mini Desert Truck is a one-stop shop of fun and R/C excitement.  From the promotional video footage, it looks like the tires have enough grip to take on any terrain you can think of.
