What are your plans for building it? Will you build it stock or swap in a few hop ups?
I am going to TRY and keep it box stock - no Trinity upgrades, I promise. Even though I have a nice Trinity blue flake front tower spare - maybe this was meant to be!? Hahahaaa

Something tells me that Horizon are not as interested in Losi's heritage as maybe AE are? :|

But we can all live & dream - the Losi XX is the car that seems to get most old/ex racers bleary eyed & nostalgic over (certainly amongst my circle of racer friends)
I agree Dan, lets hope they take notice of whats happening with the RC10. I know Rich Trujilo (spelling?) has mentioned the vintage stuff to them before.

Ok here so here are some pics of the bags from the kit, I haven't included the body/wing as they are clear and don't photograph too well.

Anyway:
Bag A: Front suspension, glad to see a black bulkhead in here!

Bag B: Steering assembly, ball-races and titanium turnbuckles in here.

Bag C: Rear suspension with MIP driveshafts, graphite tower and wishbones but not pivot plate, interestingly. I might need to add one I think, the exploded view lists it as graphite.

Bag D: Gearbox with ally layshaft &amp; gear and the iconic blue motor plate. Dual disk slipper too, complete with blue nut!

I really want to build it, but I need to finish my XX4 first, which is very close to being done :D

I want to do it box-art, but the stickers are more of a bright green than fluo-yellow, so it might look a little weird, I don't have much choice though.

That will happen, but not sure when, so you'll have to sit tight!

No worries Dan. I really want to get in there and build it, but I need to get my XX4 done first.

Smart move. I've always had trouble focusing on one at a time

I always slow down at the bodyshell stage. Theres just a little something about spraying shells that is not as exciting as building... :|

Me too...I never look forward to the body trimming & painting...but when it's done, and you've removed all the mask to see that gloriously-painted body beneath, it's all worth it in the end. :mrgreen:

This is true, its funny because I LOVE putting the stickers on, which should be motivation enough!

Sorry Karl, the least I can do is share it :D

Now off to find my camera and tripod to see if I can get some better pics, stay tuned.
I know you're only doing what I would do had I been in the right place at the right time....... seriously though, I'm glad it ended with a hard-core Losi fan who also happens to be a member of this forum.

Think about it though.....if the seller had known what it could have sold for, he probably wouldn't have listed it with such a low BIN price. I mean, what are the chances.....? And I wonder how many more there are out there yet to surface???
Just found this courtesy of Gary walker....

...and it's not even sealed.................and it's missing the wing...............and the gear cover!

Um how did I miss this? This is clearly not fair to the rest of us :roll: a NIB kinwald. sheesh.

I had major reservations on the painting of my Boxart Kinwald as at that time the bodys could be had, but not as much as now with TBG. The stickers look the same as the ones I have and found the yellow I used to match pretty good.


hey if you want to trade the Signed Ben box I have for that one LMK :lol: :lol:

Im glad its in a good home
Sleeps with a night light on, not because he's scared of the dark but because the dark is scared of him...........stay thirsty my friends
