Losi Night Crawler Bind-N-Drive

Losi Night Crawler Bind-N-Drive

While other crawlers require some modifications before they’re ready for the rocks, the 1/10-scale Night Crawler BND from Losi is good to go right out of the box, just bind it to your DSM-equipped transmitter. Included is an electronics package with a LiPo compatible, crawler programmed ESC that features voltage cutoff, so both your vehicle and battery will be protected. Powering this crawler is easier than ever, a 540-sized crawler-specific 55T motor and high-torque metal gear steering servo will get you up and over obstacles in no time. Plus, a worm-gear drive with a smaller differential case gives you increased ground clearance.

Hupo Honigl reports from Pre Season testing

Hupo Honigl reports from Pre Season testing

New Team Durango signing Hupo Honigl attended last weekend’s pre-Season race held at the Rhein-Mein Circuit in Bischofsheim, Germany and filed this report. A lot good drivers attended the race at Bischofscheim including Neumann, Drescher, Ronnefalk, Svenson, Reckward, as well as many top German drivers. Gerd made some subtle changes to a couple of parts and all I can say is that they work awesome. In the first practice run the car felt already pretty good, but the shocks were too soft and also the diff oils were too soft. I changed from 5k-5k-2k to 10k-10k-2k and changed the shockoil to 10 harder in the front and 5 harder in the rear. This helped a lot.

The racing line was visible but covered with some dust and the track held up really well all weekend, thanks to the proper preparation of the organiser club.
