My most recent purchase from The Toyz has arrived, I picked up a servo for my Losi Micro SCT. I also wanted to try a couple of body clip options, the Rubber Pull Bent Body Clips and the Silicon Body Clip Leash, but what I was really after was the Hot Racing Carbon Fiber Graphite Battery Hold Down. The Hold Down is sold for the TLR 22 22T 22SCT line, and I have found that it also fits the Pro-Line Pro-2 LCG Chassis. I figured I would pick up another one and try it out on the Team Associated B4.2, because the stock Battery Hold Down is a bit of a pain. I prefer the Hot Racing Battery Hold compared to the JConcepts version, simply because I find the thumbs screws to be beefier and easier to work, although I do perfer the size of the JConcepts Hold Down itself.

The latest offering from The Toyz is a stunning piece of work manufactured by Hot Racing. It is a Graphite & Aluminum LCG Chassis for the Losi Micro Rally, Truggy, and SCT 4WD. The light weight durable chassis is made from High quality CNC’d Blue Anodized Aluminum and Graphite. They are available now at a price of $50.99.
After getting two Losi Micro Brushless SCT‘s for my wife and myself, in the last two weeks. This is such a mean joke to play on us.
After trying out so many different vehicles at the HRM RC Meet and Greet, I decided that running RC’s indoors was something I could definitely get into. I went to my LHS and picked up a Losi Micro Brushless 1/24 scale 4wd Short Course Truck. This isn’t new technology, but it is new to me and I can’t express how impressed I am with this little RC. If you are thinking of buying one of Losi 1/24 scale RC’s, spend the extra $40 and get the Brushless version if your budget will allow. You will spend much more money later upgradig your brushed version to a brushless version. The upgrade kit will cost you around $94.99.

Here is a chance to offer your input in the design and direction of aftermarket RC parts. The Toyz are asking the general public what parts they would like to see made first for the Latrax Rally, due to the fact they have a parts supplier asking them. If you have an idea now would be a good time to voice your opinion.
It is not really the Head of Development for Latrax, but still nice to know you could have some input.

TheToyz.com is not taking the weekend off, providing us with a weekend teaser. It looks like they are going to start selling their own version of a chassis shroud. According to their Facebook page, “Coming soon The Toyz Elite Series Shrouds. (Pictured Slash 4×4 but also works with LCG chassis for Rally)”. Details at this point are few, no word on price, or if they will be made for other vehicles, or when they will be available. Now that’s a teaser.

The zipper reminds me of the Dusty Motors version and really make battery changes easy. When we find out something, we will pass it along.
