We showed you the early video of the XXX-SCT that Losi uploaded yesterday, and now today they have officially released the details.  The XXX-SCT is going to be available as a RTR and Bind-n-Drive.  It’s power will come from Losi’s LM32K 550 motor by way of the LiPo ready, water resistant ESC.  The shocks are Losi’s old bottom loading style, no fancy threaded shock bodies.  The body will be dressed up in the Sean Geiser ReadyLift Toyota livery that has been seen previously on the Mini SCT. But my favorite piece is definitely the wheel set.  They just look good.

You should see the XXX-SCT hitting the shelves in early December, just in time for the holidays.  MSRP will be $299.99.  Check out the Losi web site for more details.

One thing to note is Losi has also developed a new Short Course tire to go with XXX-SCT.  Based on their popular Eclipse tread pattern from the 1/8 buggy and truggy realm.  They should be hitting shelves late November for about $20.

Pro Boat has a new boat.  The Stiletto 29 is an ARTR tunnel hull that is setup for Bind-N-Drive with a lot of Spektrum radios.  It’s got a 1800 Kv brushless outboard motor that uses standard mounting hardware paired to a 60 amp marine ESC that’s LiPo ready, and a fiberglass composite hull for strength and performance.

The Stiletto 29 has an MSRP of $339.99 and it should be hitting your local shelves late next month.

Check out the Pro Boat web site for more info.

For a limited time all new Losi Night Crawler B-n-D kits will include an extra complete set of Losi’s high performance Comp Claws tires.  On their own these tires would set you back $40, so this is a pretty decent deal by any standard.  No other info is available right now so just keep an eye on your local hobby shop and they should be showing up soon.  But just for good measure, here’s a link to Losi’s web site.

Losi has a new mini for the dirt oval fans out there.  At first glance the new Mini Sprint may look a lot like the old Mini Slider, but the similarities are only cosmetic, and even then only at a distance.  The Mini Sprint features an all new chassis with a bottom load battery tray, mid-motor layout, and Fiber Reinforced Plastic material.  To add to the realistic look the right rear tire is larger than the left.  Other features include a 2.4 GHz Spektrum radio system, a LiPo/NiMH ready ESC, full ball bearings, and turnbuckle tie-rods.  The Mini Sprint will also be available in the Bind-N-Drive configuration.

MSRP for the RTR is going to be $279.99, BnD is $249.99, and it should be hitting shelves at the end of July.  Check out Losi’s web site for more info.
