Tim Gaukroger, one of our top Losi Drivers, took these cars home for a test drive and here are his thoughts:
"Losi’s new 1/24 Rally and SCT – what can I say, what a blast! Having been a fan of the Micro T’s, DT’s etc in the past, I knew Losi’s new 1/24th vehicles would be a winner. More powerful, refined looks, 4 wheel drive, increased runtime and better durability only meant one thing – more fun! Charge time is less than an hour and very convenient because of the supplied 240v wall adaptor. Be careful not to charge for more than an hour as you can overcharge the battery."
